First class of shares of the XKR, the six-speed automatic transmission with sequential circuit, the Jaguar XKR-S exceptional refinement and the possibility of ultra-fast manual shift control paddles mounted behind the wheel - will be with the change in time measured in milliseconds, for this to be the most do so as quickly shifting transmissions in the world.
To meet the increased performance, the Jaguar XKR-S takes the most powerful brakes on any Jaguar production model, in addition to offering great changes in its suspension and steering in the conduct of various other improved handling without compromising comfort.
The high performance braking system for the Jaguar XKR-S was developed by the Working Group of Jaguar vehicles in collaboration with British competition brake specialist Alcon, the braking performance of some of the fastest cars in the world offers , both road and track. The brakes have been developed over thousands of miles of testing in some of the toughest roads in Europe, and Jaguar's engineering team at the Nurburgring in Germany. The XKR-S Alcon R brakes with a disk capacity of 400 mm diameter 350 mm front discs and rear. Each disc is radially ventilated for maximum cooling and to resist fade into use, and perfect for increasing the speed of the XKR-S. The friction surfaces of each disc carry a series of slots in a half moon, clear waters of the discs in wet weather and help ensure that the brake pads clean at all times. The package Alcon R performance brake uses lightweight monobloc six-piston front and four-piston calipers at the rear - each calliper finished in a bright red color and logo of R.
