Jaguar Australia has unveiled a special edition XK Coupe that celebrates not only Jaguar’s 75th Anniversary, but also Jaguar’s historic return to Le Mans next weekend. Sales will begin at the end of June and there will only be 10 units produced, each priced at $193,500 plus on-road costs.
The Jaguar XK Coupe 75th Anniversary Edition is available in three colors only - Indigo Blue, Ultimate Black, and Liquid Silver. It will be distinguished by 20" Kalimnos alloy wheels, chrome finish to the side power vents, and chrome tailpipe finishers.
For the interior the XK gets bright finish pedals and an exclusive "75 Years" badge. The Jaguar will also feature a soft grain leather interior with contrast stitch and 16-way heated and cooled seats with memory. The sound coming out of the XK will be thanks to the superb Bowers & Wilkins 525-watt system with Dolby® ProLogic®II Surround Sound, three-channel stereo and unique amplifier, Kevlar mid-range speakers with high output and low distortion, and specially designed aluminum tweeters.
The Jaguar XK will get a new 5.0 Liter AJ-V8 engine without the supercharger that produces 385 bhp and 515 Nm of torque. This leave the XK doing the 0-6mph sprint in 5.5 seconds.
Pricing for the Jaguar XK starts at 193,500 AUD (158,500 USD).
