The British luxury car brand, Jaguar owned by Indian automaker Tata Motors, recently launched an all new XKR special edition in both coupe and convertible body types at a price of Rs 1.27 crore (ex-showroom, Mumbai). Changes to the exterior include a convertible hood colours including black, grey, blue and brown, a new 20-inch Orona alloy-wheel design with a polished finish and adaptive front lighting.
The ‘Artisan’ interiors get a 525W Bowers & Wilkins sound system, Poltrona Frau leather headlinings, new veneer finished in Shadow Walnut, 16×16 way adjustable heated seats, a heated steering wheel and keyless entry/start. Stainless steel pedals and special edition treadplates are also part of the standard fare.
The car is available in six different colors which include: Celestial Black, Crystal Blue, Lunar Grey, Polaris White, Rhodium Silver and Ultimate Black. Among these Celestial Black is the Special Edition color chosen by the company.
The special edition models have made use of bonded aluminum technology which makes this car light in weight. Use of this aluminum based technology can be seen in both variants of the special edition, i.e. coupe and convertible. The 5.0-litre direct-injection V8 petrol engine in 510PS supercharged form provides one with precise control, performance and smooth ride.
