Jaguar revealed today the official details of its new XKR 75, a new car that celebrates firm's 75th anniversary which will be unveiled at the the Goodwood Festival of Speed on July 2. What makes this car so special? Well, first of all the car received a power boost of 20 PS and now carries a total output of 530 PS and 655Nm (compared to 625Nm on XKR).
With these numbers, the car can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.4 seconds (with 0.2 seconds faster than the XKR) and has a top speed which is electronically limited to 174mph (280km/h). The Jaguar XKR 75 also features a revised suspension as well as handling in order to increase the precision and agility.
At the exterior we find a revised aerodynamic body kit which includes a splitter, side sills extensions, a rear diffuser and larger rear spoiler in order to increase balance and the reduction in lift. "We conceived the XR 75 as a sports car with a duality of character that makes it perfectly suited to driving across Europe to the Nurburgring, completing some very fast laps, and then driving home again" said Mike Cross, Chief Engineer Vehicle Integrity.
The new vehicle features a new Stratus Grey finish and its design is completed by the 20-inch gloss Vortex forged lightweight alloy wheels with a dark technical finish and diamond turn .
The red brake calipers provide an unique contrast. Inside, the car features Charcoal with ivory stitch, piano black finish to facia and centre console and a Jet suedecloth headlining.
The Jaguar XKR 75 will be produced in a limited edition of just 75 vehicles, each priced from £85,500 OTR and will be available to order from July 2010 while deliveries are set to start in October.
