With its thumping 5.0-litre supercharged V8 and its sensational handling, the Jaguar XF R is a pretty special car at the best of times. But the XF R-S took it to the next level.
With 542bhp at its disposal, the £80k flagship of the XF range was sensationally fast, reaching 60mph from a standstill in just 4.4 seconds and with a top speed electronically limited to 186mph, all the while accompanied by a shrieking supercharged whistle. It’s a car that truly stirs the senses.
This Midnight Black example is a 2014 facelifted model, which means a more aggressive front end, restyled 20-inch alloy wheels and – more pertinently – an eight-speed automatic transmission and limited slip diff lifted from the Jaguar F-Type.
It’s a smart and well-maintained example with a full digital service history, and a great opportunity to acquire a very rare modern classic, complete with 500bhp+ performance.
THE HISTORY AND PAPERWORK
Two previous keepers
MOT December 2023
Main dealer full service history, digitally recorded
Private Registration does not accompany vehicle. Will be supplied with YY14 OME.
Black leather sports seats with red stitching
Carbon fibre and titanium trim inserts
Climate front seats
It may be a performance model but that doesn’t stop the XF R-S from enjoying the usual high-specification accoutrements found on a Jaguar saloon, so the cabin is supremely well-equipped. The multi-adjustable climate sports seats are both heated and cooled, there’s an extended leather package that covers the doors and dash as well as the seats, Alcantara headlining and a heated steering wheel, for example.
In-car entertainment, meanwhile, comes courtesy of an optionally upgraded Meridian surround-sound 16-speaker audio system.
Factory boot spoiler
Excellent overall condition
Finished in stealthy Midnight Black and rolling on factory 20-inch alloy wheels, the XF R-S is a fine-looking car in completely standard, unmodified condition. It sports the optional rear boot spoiler, which is actively sought-after by XF R-S fans.
The exterior is in superb order, having been treated to a professional polish and detailing. There are no notable marks or damage other than very minor stone chips and the wheels are in superb order, complemented by bright red R-branded heavy duty brake callipers.
5.0-litre supercharged V8
Limited slip diff
Under the bonnet is Jaguar’s homegrown 5.0-litre V8, coupled with an Eaton supercharger that boosts the power output to 542bhp.
The upshot is not only astounding performance – 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 186mph - but also an intoxicating soundtrack, the wail of the supercharger accompanied by a bass-led wuffling from the stainless steel sports exhaust system. It’s both addictive and exciting.
Being a facelift car, this one also has the added advantage of the limited slip e-diff carried over from the F-Type sports coupé, as well as an eight-speed automatic transmission instead of the earlier model’s six-speeder.
Everything appears to be in fine mechanical order, while the car has a full and up-to-date Jaguar digital service history.
With its incredible performance and striking looks, the XF R-S is an instant modern classic as well as one of the most engaging and responsive sports saloons that money can buy.
This is a great example overall – carefully maintained, fully equipped and well-presented, in a truly fantastic colour scheme and with blistering performance, it’s a fantastic example of a modern-day British muscle car.

About Max Bids
The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.
Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.
If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.
£0 to £9,999
£10,000 to £49,999
£50,000 to £99,999
Automatically outbid immediately
When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.
Matching max bids
When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
