Goodwood Festival of Speed: Jaguar 75th Anniversary

Jay Nagley

Jaguar decided to celebrate its anniversary in style at Goodwood by bringing its special edition XKR 75 model to the racing circuit.

The XKR 75 is the both most powerful front-engined Jaguar ever (523 bhp) and the fastest (electronically limited to 174 mph).Other highlights include suspension stiffened by approximately 30%, a new aerodynamics package, steering that reduces in sensitivity at autobahn speeds and 20 inch forged alloy wheels.

On the track it was every bit as devastating as one would hope. Huge performance, razor-sharp turn-in and fantastic brakes made even the most ham-fisted driver feel like an ace.
