Accomplishing seventy-five years in the automotive industry is something to be proud of and Jaguar is making no bones about celebrating their diamond anniversary with a slew of special editions fit to awe anyone who lays their eyes on them. We have already seen the 2010 Jaguar XF V8 75th Anniversary , the 2010 Jaguar XK Coupe 75th Anniversary Edition , and the 2010 Jaguar XKR 75 Special Edition . Now, Jaguar is bringing yet another celebratory special edition model, and this one is based off the Jaguar XKR 75.
At this weekend’s Pebble Beach Concours , Jaguar will be unveiling the special edition XKR175. This special edition will be limited to 175 units (15 of them allocated for the Canadian market), each carrying a price tag of $104,500.
The new XKR175 will be powered by a supercharged V8 engine that will deliver 510hp and 461 lb-ft of torque. Top speed will be increased to 174 mph. This special edition will be distinguished by a revised aerodynamic package that includes a new front air dam, new side sills, a new rear diffuser, and a larger rear spoiler. The classy look of Jaguar will be maintained with new 20-inch Kasuga 10-spoke alloy wheels, red brake calipers, and an Ultimate Black exterior paint.
The interior of the Jaguar XKR175 will get door sill tread plates reading "XKR175 – 1 of 175" while the leather is finished in Warm Charcoal with Cranberry stitching. The look will be completed with Piano Black wood veneer.
