Jaguar has made an impressive start to 2009, with new vehicle sales up by 22% on a year on year basis. Jaguar is one of only a few automotive brands to record sales growth in 2009, and to capitalise on this achievement, a new XK limited edition model, the XK-S, will be launched this month.
Like every Jaguar to carry the XK badge, the XK-S is all about performance with style - plus a large helping of individuality. The XK-S offers its own spin on the 4.2 litre V8 XK in coupe form.
The car offers a host of additional extras beyond the XK's already impressive specification at no extra cost. In true Jaguar tradition, every XK-S will be a highly desirable car with an impressively accessible price tag.
The XK-S customer will benefit from dramatic 20-inch Senta alloy wheels, luxury sports interior (including soft grain leather and 16 x 16 way seats), a sporty brushed aluminium gear knob and bright finish pedals plus distinctive body enhancements: new front and rear valence panels, chrome-finished side vents and bright finish upper and lower front mesh grilles, special tailpipe finishers and appliqués on both sides of the car. All vehicles will carry exclusive "S" badging. These additional features have a retail value of approx. $25,000 at no additional charge to the customer.
To emphasise the exclusive nature of the XK-S model, there will only be 9 cars in total produced for the Australian market. Chris Lidis, General Manager, Jaguar Australia, commented: "We are very pleased to be able to offer Jaguar customers the XK-S. The specification is quite unique, and very exclusive. It combines outstanding performance and dramatic beauty with individual touches of craftsmanship and equipment that lift it to another level".
Jaguar's advanced all aluminum construction makes the XK and XK-S the lightest yet strongest car in it's class; CATS Computer Active Technology Suspension underpins it's perfect balance of control and agility with comfort and refinement; it's six speed automatic transmission is recognized as one of the world's best, and it is powered by an acclaimed engine - the 219kW 4.2-litre AJ-V8.
Available to order now, the XK-S is available in 3 colours - Indigo blue, Ultimate Black, Liquid Silver, and with a choice of Caramel or Warm Charcoal interior. The XK-S will carry a recommended retail price of $209,400.
