Following a transformation for model year 2010 that introduced new-generation powertrains, new dynamic chassis systems and added luxury, the Jaguar XK sports car models enter the 2011 model year with a special edition — the XKR175 75th Anniversary Coupe — to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the first cars to bear the Jaguar name.
The Jaguar XKR175 75th Anniversary Coupe is painted Ultimate Black and is also distinguished by aerodynamic enhancements, including front and rear spoilers, side sills and a rear diffuser. The 20-inch Kasuga alloy wheels are exclusive to this special edition model and highlight the standard red brake calipers. Raising the electronically governed top speed from 155 mph to 174 mph exclusively for this special edition underscores the formidable performance capability of the XKR.
All XKR models are powered by a 510-hp direct-injection supercharged 5.0-liter V8. Inside the XKR175 75th Anniversary Coupe, the Charcoal leather trimmed interior is accented with Cranberry stitching and Piano Black veneer trim. All of the XKR175 75th Anniversary Coupes feature doorsill tread plates inscribed “XKR175 – 1 of 175.”
The Jaguar XK range includes the naturally aspirated XK and supercharged XKR models, each available as a 2+2 Coupe or Convertible.
New for 2011, all Jaguar models come standard with Jaguar Platinum Coverage, which includes for 5 years or 50,000 miles (which ever comes first) complimentary scheduled maintenance, no-cost replacement of basic wear and tear items including: brake pads and discs, oil and brake fluid changes and wiper blade inserts, 5 year/50,000 mile new vehicle limited warranty and 24/7 roadside assistance.
Base model estimated mpg: 16/24
Estimated starting price: $83,000
