Spied: 2014 Jaguar XFR-S Wagon

The 2014 Jaguar XFR-S is the fastest sedan the automaker has ever made, which means the prototype spied in the images below will be the fastest wagon ever. Spy photographers have spotted the XFR-S wagon out for the first time during testing at the Nurburgring.

Wearing minimal camouflage on its front end, the XFR-S looks just like the sedan, but with extra junk in the trunk. The body kit from the XFR-S sedan transfers over to the wagon, except for the massive rear wing, of course. All the mechanics will transfer over as well, which means the wagon will be motivated by a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 with 550 hp mated to a ZF eight-speed transmission. Jaguar says the sedan will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds, though the wagon’s extra weight may cost it extra time. Either way, the XFR-S wagon will be one fast family hauler in Europe; don’t expect any XF wagon to ever sell in the U.S.
 While cars such as the XFR-S sedan and wagon serve as halo vehicles, Jaguar is preparing to introduce an arsenal of new entry-level variants including a new wagon, crossover, and sedan. If the XFR-S shooting brake were to make its way here, it could challenge the Mercedes-Benz E63 wagon and Cadillac CTS-V wagon. Unless Jaguar decides to bring the hot wagon here (when pigs fly), we’ll likely see the XFR-S variant again when it bows at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
