2012 Jaguar XK and XKR Special Editions Announced

Special Edition

New exclusive paint and a luxurious cabin are the main features of these special edition Jags.

Whether you want the coupe or convertible, the XK and XKR are now available in Special Edition form with a new 'Artisan' interior. Here scraffito grain leather features on the 16 by 16 way heated performance front seats, instrument binnacle, door and rear quarter casings, while Poltrona Frau leather has been used for the headlining. Customers can also choose between Shadow Walnut and Dark Figured Aluminum for the trim color.

Other interior highlights include a 525-watt Bowers & Wilkins sound system, unique treadplates and stainless-steel pedals. Exterior changes are limited to two 20-inch alloy designs and the XK gets an exclusive lick of Celestial Black paint. The cars are powered by the 5.0-liter V8 engine foun in the standard model, which produces 380hp in the XK and 503hp in the XKR. Modest performance enhancements result in a new top speed of 174mph, up from 155, that comes courtesy of Jaguar's Dynamic Pack.
