UPDATE: The XFR-S has been revealed. See our new article here.
The XFR-S gets a big hole-filled bumper up front, while the rear-end gets a tweaked version of the XFR's bumper. No matter, as rivals in the rear mirror will be staring at the big boot-mounted carbon wing.
The big cat swaps out the chrome highlights for a muted black look, and a new split six-spoke wheel design is also in play.
Technical details are still to be revealed, but expect the XFR-S to get the same 405kW supercharged 5.0 litre V8 powering the XKR-S - a neat boost over the XFR's 375kW output.
The extra power should see the XFR-S give BMW's hero M5 a run for its money, driven by a 412kW 4.4 litre turbocharged V8 and offering a 4.3 second run to 100km/h.
The XFR-S will prove heavier than the XKR-S, though, making a 0-100km/h time of around 4.6 seconds likely - a hair above the XKR-S' 4.4 and a smidge sweeter than the XFR's 4.9 seconds.
The debut of the new powerhouse sedan will follow the recently unveiled F-Type roadster, which is expected to make its Australian appearance in coming months.
