Two new five litre direct injection V8 engines have been added to the 2010 model Jaguar XF range for the New Zealand market
Jaguar says these engines in the 5.0 V8 and XFR models produce more performance with the same economy and two per cent less emissions than the 4.2 litre V8 they replace.
The 5.0 V8 model produces 283 kWs and 515 Nm of torque, while the supercharged XFR has 375 kWs and 625 Nm. They will sell for $159,990 and $209,990 respectively.
The XFR has had a 23 per cent boost in power, while torque is up 12 per cent. The 0-100kph acceleration time is a reported 4.9 seconds.
The naturally aspirated 5.0 V8 has gained 29 per cent more power and 25 per cent more torque.
Both V8s meet Euro5 emission regulations, which are not mandatory until 2011.
The same new five litre V8 engine options are also fitted to the 2010 XK and XKR coupe and convertible models.
The XK pricing starts from $229,990 for the V8 Coupe, with the flagship XKR convertible tagged at $274,990.
The XFR and all the XK models will only be available to customer factory forward order. The XF 5.0 V8 and other XF models will be available as Jaguar dealer stock items.
