The Jaguar XF Sportbrake is a fantastic car but it has only, so far, been available as a diesel.  The XFR-S is an amazing car but it has only, so far, been available as a saloon.

Now, in order to give the Germans a kicking Jaguar has finally put its brilliant 5 litre supercharged V8 in the estate version of the XF to create the XFR-S Sportbrake.

The Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake produces 542bhp and 501 lb ft of torque, and makes a ton of noise whilst doing so.  The price is £82,495 and it'll be available to order from 1 April 2014.

Acceleration is swift with 0-60mph taking 4.6 seconds, and top speed is 186mph.  Chassis and aerodynamic enhancements help to tame the extra power.  The suspension is 30% stiffer, the electronic diff has been recalibrated, the front geometry has been revised and stiffened and the steering has been sharpened.

The gearbox is an 8-speed ZF unit with the Quickshift functionality normally found in the F-Type, which means it'll blip on down changes - and make an awesome noise.

The XFR-S Sportbrake will be available in five colours including the Ultra Blue you see in the photos.

The Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake looks pretty awesome.
