- Text originally from the Jaguar XK's Wikipedia page.
The XKR-S GT is a limited (30 units in United States and Canada, 10 units in the UK; worldwide production was 45 units) version of XKR-S coupé. Technical highlights included a six-speed transmission, active electronic differential, bespoke aerodynamic components and suspension developments to increase downforce and optimised high-speed cornering ability (a wider front track, increased camber, revised bushings, a new steering system and faster steering ratio, height-adjustable and bespoke adaptive dampers with twin spring system and increased rates of 68% at the front and 25% at the rear), a carbon ceramic brake system (398 mm and 380 mm front/rear discs, 6/4-piston front/rear monoblock calipers).
The Jaguar XKR-S GT was added in the 2020 Halloween Update as a mid Class B car with the following rank statistics:
Performance & usage
The Jaguar XKR-S GT has a high top speed for Class B, fast acceleration, good handling, a moderately sharp drifting radius and good nitro efficiency.
While the XKR-S GT has rapid acceleration (marginally faster than the BMW M4 GTS in reaching top speed) and excellent nitro efficiency (only worse than the McLaren MP4/8, SCG 003S, and Suzuki Hayabusa), its overall performance is only good. It cannot compete with the Class B kings, such as the Acura NSX GT3 Evo, Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport, M4 GTS, etc. The XKR-S GT also cannot compete with the MP4/8, which is ranked slightly lower within Class B. The XKR-S GT's rank of B1660 is generally non-optimal since it's significantly lower-ranked than most of the Class B kings, but not ranked low enough to avoid them in Multiplayer matchmaking.
The Jaguar XKR-S GT was originally obtainable by reaching Tier 8 in its Festival. As of the 2020 Christmas Update, the car can be purchased for 1,300,000.
