We take the fastest Jaguar since the XJ220 - the new XKR 75 - out to Germany’s Nurburgring for a video review. Jaguar has only built 75 examples as it celebrates its 75th birthday this year and in our video player below you can watch CAR writer Jethro Bovingdon as he closes in on the 174mph top speed of this boosted XKR.
Updates over the standard XKR include a more generous helping of 523bhp, 483lb ft of twist, made possible by a new induction system to the supercharged 5.0-litre V8. The chassis is upgraded to cope with the extra muscle.
Watch the video below and see the new Jaguar XKR75 fending off the Ring regulars such as the CSL and GT3.
