Jaguar XF R rivals

The XFR is designed to appeal to the kind of car buyer who previously would have bought a powerful German saloon like the BMW M5 or Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG. It offers a tantalising blend of performance, luxury and cutting-edge engineering. At its heart is an all-new 5.0-litre V8 engine with 500bhp that powers the XFR to 62mph in less than five seconds and onto a top speed of 155mph.

It's good to drive and is as happy to soak-up motorway miles as it is on cross-country B-road blasts. The package is completed by the stylish, modern interior that's not only beautifully crafted, but also matched to some of the latest in-car technology.
