Jaguar has just introduced a new special edition model of the XE. The 300 Sport is powered by the post powerful version of Jaguars four cylinder petrol engine, producing 296bhp. With power sent to all four wheels, this makes the XE capable of a 0-60 sprint in 5.4 seconds, making it only 0.5 seconds slower than the V6 powered RWD XE S. It will be offered in 4 different colors and will be priced from £45,160. That makes it £7015 more expensive than the next highest-ranking XE with the 296bhp engine, the R-Sport AWD.

The engine doesn't change from what I've heard, so that additional £7015 is just for a few exterior upgrades that are mainly for looks. Not something I'd be interested in since that money could be better spent elsewhere. Suppose it's good if you don't want to go through the hassle of sifting through the aftermarket.

Its definitely a lot of money for some styling tweaks, and I think it might actually be cheaper to do the mods yourself through aftermarket. Far more interested in the Project 8 that Jaguar is still working on. They should have at least considered a tune for a trim that features the word sport.
