The new Jaguar XFR-S will make its global dynamic debut on the famous Goodwood Hill on Wednesday 20 March. Finished in Italian Racing Red, the prototype version of Jaguar’s fastest ever sports saloon will be driven in front of a media audience at Goodwood by 1988 Le Mans 24hr race winner Andy Wallace.
Jaguar Land Rover is commencing production of the Jaguar XF saloon at its facility in Pune, India, from components supplied from the company’s Castle Bromwich plant in Birmingham, UK.
The initial Pune-built Jaguar XF models will feature the company’s acclaimed 2.2-litre diesel engine, which is coming to the Indian market for the first time. The Jaguars will be built alongside Land Rover Freelander 2 vehicles which have been produced in Pune since May 2011
Dr Ralf Speth, Chief Executive of Jaguar Land Rover, said: "India is a market that offers significant opportunities for both the Jaguar and Land Rover brands. The expansion of our Pune operations to include the Jaguar XF will help us realise our ambitions for the Indian market.
