Jaguar marks 75 year anniversary with XKR175 limited edition

Jaguar is using this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance being held in California to celebrate the 75th anniversary of its brand. For the thousands in attendance, the English marque will be revealing the limited edition 2011 Jaguar XKR175 Coupe.

Limited to 175 units, the car is powered by a 380-kW supercharged V8 that generates up to 624 Nm of torque. Top speed is kept to an electronically-limited to 280 km/h. To ensure that the XKR175 remains stable at high speeds, a revised aerodynamic package incorporates a new front air dam, new side sills, a new rear diffuser and a larger rear spoiler providing increased balance and a reduction in lift. New 20-inch Kasuga 10-spoke alloy wheels, red brake calipers and Ultimate Black exterior paint adorn the car’s exterior.

Inside the cabin there’s ‘Warm Charcoal’ leather, finished with Cranberry stitching. The wood veneer trim is finished in Piano Black, and there are the mandatory special badging with the series number on the door sills.

The brand new Jag will be priced at $104,500 ($147,400 NZ) and will be on display throughout the Pebble Beach Automotive Weekend.
