From 1988 to 1993, a special high performance version of the Jaguar XJ-S was produced by the newly formed JaguarSport, a separate company owned 50/50 by Jaguar and Tom Walkinshaw Racing – specialising in developing high performance Jaguar racing and sports cars. A distinctive body kit, special alloy wheels, a unique suspension system utilising modified coil springs and Bilstein shocks as well as other handling improvements separated the XJR-S from the XJ-S.
After September 1989, the displacement of the engine was increased to 5,993 cc and it was now equipped witb with Zytek fuel injection and engine management system. This was different from the standard 6.0-litre engine used in the late XJS models and was unique to this model. The power output was raised to 249 kW (334 hp) at 5,250 rpm and 495 N⋅m (365 lb⋅ft) of torque at 3,650 rpm due to a higher compression ratio of 11.0:1, a new forged steel crankshaft, increased bore and forged alloy pistons. A modified air intake system and a low loss dual exhaust system was also standard on the model.
Only 350 examples of the 6.0 litre version were manufactured for the European market, and the total production of all XJR-S Coupé versions was 787 cars.
