Earlier this month, we reported that the Jaguar XK is fast approaching the fag end of its career. CLICK HERE to read our earlier story. Now, we’ve got to know that Jaguar has come up with a new special edition of its outgoing model to commemorate 66 years since the XK120 was launched. Dubbed as the Jaguar XK66, the new car is a commemorative model that marks the 66th anniversary of the XK120, which was first introduced at the London Motor Show in 1948. Production of the new Jaguar XK66 Special Edition will be limited to just 66 units, with all these limited edition models being based on the XK Portfolio trim level. The car is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 engine that has a max power of 380 bhp (283 kW).
The new Jaguar XK66 Special Edition will go on sale in both coupe and convertible body variants and will be available in two colours: British Racing Green and Stratus. The XK66 comes with bespoke emblems, 20-inch Orona polished alloys, chrome mirror caps, black Union Jack emblems and option of a beige or black fabric roof for the cabriolet body variant.
On the inside, the car gets a “XK66 One of 66” plate, aluminum shift paddles, and option of Warm Charcoal leather with Ivory contrast stitching or Caramel soft grain leather with Warm Charcoal contrast stitching. The car also gets standard features such as a tire pressuring monitoring system, rear-view camera and adaptive headlights.
The Jaguar XK66 sales in Germany are likely to commence in May and prices for the Jaguar XK66 coupe will start at 99,380 EUR. Prices for the Jaguar XK66 convertible start at 107,580 EUR.
