Jaguar’s technical specialist for performance and drive dynamics, Tim Clark has said that all-wheel drive doesn’t make a sports car experience as the models using AWD drive in a very different way. That is why, Jaguar is not considering four-wheel-drive cars, because it needs to do a lot of re-engineering in order to make its cars offer the same experience as the RWD models.

Currently, Jaguar offers plenty of high-performance models and the latest addition is the 2015 XFR-S Sportbrake, which was unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show back in March. This model is powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that generates 550 hp and 680 Nm of torque, enough to push it from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds and to a top speed of 300 km/h.

Using an eight-speed Quickshift transmission, the F-Type R Coupe zooms from 0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and has a top speed electronically limited at 300km/h.
