In the market for a mid-sized luxury sedan? The Germans offer some great choices, from the Audi A6 and BMW 5 Series to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. However, if you're looking for something a little...different, you may want to look at Jaguar's XF, and like the Germans, Jaguar offers a performance version in the XFR.

With 510 horsepower, the supercharged Jag trails just behind the Mercedes E63 AMG's 518hp, but well behind the 560-horse BMW M5 in the bragging rights department. Jaguar, however, has now addressed that particular shortcoming with the new XFR-S. jaguar sedan
Unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the XFR-S stands as the most potent Jaguar performance sedan to date. It borrows its 542-horsepower, 5.0-liter supercharged V8 from its two-door XKR-S counterpart and pairs it with an upgraded suspension, aerodynamic body package (note the big rear wing), 20-inch wheels and revised electronics.

The result is a 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds and an electronically-limited top speed of 186 mph, meaning that the new super-cat can keep pace with Germany's finest, even on the Autobahn and around the Nurburgring – two places which its Teutonic rivals call home. Jaguar's XFR-S
Like what you see? Try not to like it too much, because Jaguar will only be bringing in 100 examples next year to the United States, each carrying a $99,000 sticker price. Though the French Racing Blue pictured here has become emblematic of Jaguar's expanding R-S range, we're sure you'll be able to order it in other colors too. Jaguar's XFR-S
