JAGUAR ANNOUNCES SPEED PACK FOR XFR
Jaguar’s powerful XFR sports saloon just got even faster, with the introduction of a new optional Speed Pack.
Featuring a speed limiter raised to 174mph (280km/h), the 510PS XFR Speed Pack car is equipped with revised engine and gearbox calibration to match the increased top speed. A new front aero splitter and a new rear wing distinguish the Speed Pack car.
The 510PS XFR sports saloon benefits from the same combination of eight-speed automatic gearbox and Intelligent Stop/Start allowing it to offer an unrivalled blend of efficiency and excitement. The EU Combined cycle improves by 11% with its emissions reduced by more than 8%.
The XFR Speed Pack is available now priced at £2,750 in the UK.

While retaining the traditional rear-wheel drive emphasis of the 911, the all-wheel drive chassis of the Carrera 4 and 4S delivers increased traction, road-holding and dynamic performance over a wide variety of road surfaces and in all weather conditions.
LAND ROVER DISCOVERY 4 CLAIMS TOP TOWCAR AWARD
The Land Rover Discovery 4 has proved itself the people’s choice in winning the Best Towcar title in the first Caravan Talk reader awards, at the recent Motorhome and Caravan Show at the NEC, Birmingham.

The nominations and winners were determined by votes from members of the Caravan Talk online community (caravantalk.co.uk) and the opinions they expressed provide an impressive real-world judgement on the qualities of the latest generation of Land Rover vehicles.
