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.

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.
