Jaguar will launch a muscly new hero in its top-end limo range next week when it pulls the wraps from a new XJR variant in New York.

Joining a growing range of R-badged performance models, the XJR will feature a more powerful heart and a host of styling and handling tweaks.

Powering the XJR will be a 410kW 5.0 litre supercharged V8; likely the same 5.0 litre supercharged V8 that propels the XFR-S to 100km/h in 4.6 seconds.

"The new XJR epitomises the three pillars of technology, performance and contemporary design which the Jaguar brand stands for in the twenty-first century, while delivering new levels of dynamic ability in a luxury saloon," Jaguar brand manager Adrian Hallmark said.

Jaguar says it has added a number of steering, suspension and braking enhancements that have been tested at the Nurburgring, and its XJ 'Ring Taxi unveiled in 2012 will likely have played a part in development.

Styling tweaks have been kept suitably simple, with the regular XJ bumper adding a pair of open chrome-framed intakes up front.

There is also a revised bonnet with subtle venting, along with new side skirts. For now, the look of the rear-end and the cabin remain a secret.

Watch for the XJR to debut in New York next week.
