2012 Jaguar XK and XKR Special Edition

With rumors of a limited run XKR-S Coupe buzzing in the air, Jaguar is giving us a brief slice of what ’special edition’ means in their parlance.

Headed to the 2012 Geneva Motor Show are a pair of special edition models of the XK and XKR that come with some pretty eye-catching exterior and interior details. The former includes an array of color options that customers can choose from: Celestial Black, Crystal Blue, Lunar Grey, Polaris Polaris White, Rhodium Silver, and Ultima Ultima te Black. In addition, Jaguar also fitted the sports car a choice of two headlining color options - Navy with Jet or Truffle with Canvas - and two new sets of 20" alloy wheels wrapped in diamond-turned Venom wheels with a dark grey finish.

As for the interior, Jaguar put in a couple of trims, highlighted by two exclusive Artisan interior color ways: Navy with Jet headlining and Truffle with Canvas headlining. As for the convertible variants, the British automaker is also providing more options for the hood, including a choice of four colors: Black, Blue, Grey, and Brown. The interior also has seats dressed in a tactile ‘scraffito’ finished leather, an instrument binnacle, door and rear quarter casings, Poltrona Frau leather headlinings, and two new veneer finishes: Shadow Walnut and Dark Figured Aluminum.

Last, but certainly not least, the XK and XKR Special Edition models will receive Jaguar’s Dynamic Pack which comes with an modified engine that bumps up the car’s top speed from 155 mph to 174mph. The Pack also includes side sill extensions with new rear diffuser, revised adaptive dynamics, spring and damper rates, and a new front steering knuckle for optimized precision.

The package is good at XK and XKR using a dynamic package that runs with the improved engine that is capable of 174 MPH maximum speed.

It’s nice to know that Jaguar offers new special editions of their top of the line cars. The description of the exterior and its little details, amaze me somehow. It’s great that it has an output of 510hp.

Powerful and majestic, that was the two words to describe how Jaguar approach me. It was a great project and I’m looking forward for the success of this XK and XKR.

Amazing! This has a strong presence on the road. Its hood the main part that makes it standout. It seems to be a really speedy car.
