Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar Global Brand Director said: “I’m delighted that Jaguar is able to present the XFR-S in action for the first time in the UK, and that a Jaguar motorsport hero will be behind the wheel. The crowd at Goodwood will have a unique opportunity to see and hear the ultimate expression of seductive Jaguar design and sporting performance in the XFR-S well in advance of first deliveries to customers this summer.”
Jaguar XFR-S performance highlights
The new XFR-S is capable of sprinting from zero to 60mph in just 4.4 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.6 seconds), and up to the electronically limited top speed of 186mph (300km/h). The XFR-S builds on the performance of the acclaimed XFR to create an even more focused product. With an increase of 40PS and 55Nm over the XFR in power and torque from its 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine, the XFR-S produces an astonishing to 550PS and 680Nm, yet with with no impact on fuel consumption or CO2 emissions.
Automotive technologies could cut motorists’ fuel bills by up to 20 percent – around £250 per year
More than a third of new cars in 2015 could emit below 100g/km CO2*
Bosch technology could help cut UK CO2 output by 800,000 tonnes
It is a fact that buying a new car can reduce running costs by improving fuel economy. Bosch remains at the forefront of many technologies, such as common-rail diesel and gasoline systems, as well as Start/Stop systems, which help to reduce vehicle emissions and increase fuel efficiency without sacrificing overall performance.
Following the launch of the 2013 SMMT New Car CO2 report, by 2015 the average fuel economy of a new car could be up to up to 20 percent better, cutting motorists’ fuel bills thanks to advances in powertrain technologies. Bosch delivers the innovations to make this a reality.
These technologies include more efficient fuel injection systems, downsized engines, turbocharging and systems that temporarily switch the engine off when the vehicle is stationary.
Motorists with new vehicles already profit substantially from these technologies, enjoying reduced fuel consumption and improved CO2 emission and Bosch still sees potential for greater savings. In 2015, new technologies could be saving the average motorist driving 12,000 miles per year up to £250**.
Many of these low carbon technologies being developed by Bosch contribute towards environmental protection. Improvements in fuel economy could lead to 37 percent of new cars in 2015 emitting below 100g/km CO2. New cars in 2015 could emit half a tonne less CO2 per year than today’s average models.
