BMW M5 TOURING-FIGHTER: Spy photographers captured images of Jaguar’s XFR-S Sportbrake undergoing testing. Image: Automedia

We’ve seen Jaguar XFR-S sedans at the Nürburgring before but this time spy photographers spotted the car in Sportsbrake guise.

Jaguar tried to camouflage it with a bit of white tape but spies confirmed it’s the 405kW XF estate!

Instead of discrete bodywork, the XFR-S has a large diffuser, visceral exhaust note and a huge gaping front end.

TAKING ON THE M5 TOURING

What’s more, this is the only stock estate we know that rides on low profile performance tyres like the ones captured in spy images.

The XFR-S Sportsbrake will be powered by the same 405kW 5.0 supercharged V8 that also powers the saloon.

If you think of probably buying the new BMW M5 Touring but think it is not assertive enough, The XFR-S Sportsbrake might be the perfect solution.
