2015 Jaguar XKR Final Fifty Edition Unveiled at New York Auto Show

Jaguar XK is about to end its life and the final lot is just about to hit the production bay; but before hitting the last mile on the line, Jaguar had released the Final Fifty edition of the 2015 XK and had said to make it exclusively available for the US at the 2014 New York Auto Show.

The final fifty edition is based on the 2015 Jaguar XKR models.

Out of the total fifty, 25 of them would be the 2015 XKR Coupes and the other 25 would be 2015 XKR convertibles. All of them are meant to be painted in Ultimate Black with special trim.

It will hit the production in summer and would reach the showrooms in fall.

Not to be surprised, this inspiration of the final fifty was taken from the special final edition of its iconic E-Type sports car in 1974, where 49 of them were painted in black over cinnamon trim and one in British Racing Green.

Hope so to make it a collectible too, Jaguar had given some special touch on the exteriors and interiors. The hood of the car is taken from the XKR-S GT, with a 20-inch wheel. The under hood technicalities are made equipped with Performance Pack and Dynamic Pack, which feature performance enhancements to the suspension, aerodynamics and powertrain.

Though, cabin of the 2015 XKR final fifty edition remains mostly unchanged, but the sorted pinnacles of Performance seats, a Jet suedecloth steering wheel and special door sill plates are included. The special Jaguar also bells a Bowers & Wilkins audio system, and ultimately a badge featuring the signature of Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum completes it all.

The power to it will come from a AJ-V8 Gen III 5-liter V8 engine that produces 510hp and 461 lb.-ft. of torque.  It can zest from 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds and can stand onto a top speed of 174 mph (280 km/h).
