Jaguar has announced plans to introduce the limited edition XKR 75 at the 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The model celebrates Jaguar's 75th anniversary and delivers a combination of increased performance, stronger chassis and better steering control along with higher grip levels.
According to Jaguar, this model will "deliver a combination of enhanced performance, superb chassis and steering control and grip levels to inspire the driving enthusiast to explore the true potential of the XKR's capabilities."
The XKR 75 will be offered in a new Stratus Grey finish, with 20-inch Vortex forged lightweight alloy wheels with a dark grey finish and diamond turn, red-painted brake calipers, and an aerodynamic body kit comprised of a front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser, and trunklid spoiler.
As for the interior, the cabin is finished in charcoal leather with cranberry-red stitching, piano black wood trim, and individually numbered door sill plates.
Jaguar also equipped the XKR 75 with a sportier suspension and dropped the ride height by 15mm front / 10mm rear.
Jaguar engineers increased the power and torque of the acclaimed supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine to 530 PS (390 kW / 523 hp) and 655 Nm (483 lb-ft) of torque - an increase of 20 PS (15 kW / 20 hp) and 30 Nm (20 lb-ft) over the standard XKR. The car is now able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds, instead of 4.6 seconds, and reaches an electronically limited top speed of 174 mph (280 km/h).
Jaguar will build 75 examples which will be available to order from July 2010 in the UK priced from £85,500 OTR. Customer deliveries will commence during October.
