Winning praise around the world, Jaguar’s XKR needs little in the way of introduction and is a stand out ‘looker’ in its own right. If the graceful lines of the big cat aren’t enough for you then maybe you need the Portfolio edition?

Jaguar will be bringing two Portfolio edition models to the Geneva Motor Show in March, their gorgeous XKR and their more traditional (but still beautiful) XJ saloon.

For the XKR, the Portfolio ‘pack’ includes some notable upgrades, including the addition of 20-inch ‘Selena’ alloy wheels along with 400mm front and 350mm rear brake discs. Clamping the front discs are a set of red six-piston calipers, with four-piston calipers working the rears.

The black paintwork is actually a unique Shadow Grey metallic and is contrasted with aluminium side vents in the front guards.

On the inside is a choice of either charcoal or ivory leather with contrasting stitching along with turned aluminium or the more traditional oak veneer trim. The audio system is upgraded to a 525-watt Bowers & Wilkins system.

"The Jaguar XKR epitomizes Jaguar's commitment to creating beautiful, fast cars. The XKR Portfolio has been crafted using exquisite modern materials - from the use of aluminum inside and out to the stylish cabin's soft-grain leather with twin-needle stitching, hand-crafted veneers and luxury Alston headlining," commented Design Director Ian Callum.

Jaguars XJ saloon gets a similar treatment to the XKS, although it can also be ordered with Gold metallic paint. The same 20-inch alloy wheels feature as well as the aluminium side vents in the front guards.

This time around the XJ Portfolio is available with either the super-charged or NA V8, whereas the previous XJ Portfolio was only available with the super-charged mill.

Inside the XJ Portfolio, there is a choice of two trim colours, either blue with beige piping or beige with blue piping. Interior trim items are finished in oak veneer.

Both Jaguar press releases follow the image galleries.

Following the success of the special edition XKR Portfolio last year, Jaguar's design team has created a new XKR Portfolio - available in June 2008 – combining distinctive styling with luxurious interior touches to create a model that is a supreme Grand Tourer with the performance and dynamics of a true sports car.

"The Jaguar XKR epitomizes Jaguar's commitment to creating beautiful, fast cars. The XKR Portfolio has been crafted using exquisite modern materials - from the use of aluminum inside and out to the stylish cabin's soft-grain leather with twin-needle stitching, hand-crafted veneers and luxury Alston headlining," commented Design Director Ian Callum.

Complementing the carefully considered interior, the XKR Portfolio enhances the already powerful sporting styling cues of the XKR with an exclusive Shadow Grey exterior paint and new 20-inch Selena alloy wheels with a unique shadow finish and a red Jaguar 'Heritage' center badge, coupled with Alcon R Performance brakes with red calipers.

Every XKR benefits from its advanced aluminum construction, which ensures that it's striking looks are matched by a dynamic, lightweight chassis. Powered by a 420bhp 4.2 liter V8 supercharged engine, the XKR delivers excellent performance, supremely confident handling and excellent stopping power.

XKR Portfolio's Alcon R Performance braking system is the result of close collaboration between leading brake manufacturer Alcon and Jaguar's engineers who together carried out extensive testing at Jaguar's specialist engineering center, based at the Nurburgring in Germany. Boasting the largest brake discs ever fitted to a production Jaguar – with 400mm front brake discs and powerful six-piston callipers, while at the rear four-piston callipers operate on 350mm discs – the XKR Portfolio's brakes produce fade-free performance time and time again whilst maintaining Jaguar's renowned blend of refinement and stopping power.

A sumptuous blend of luxury and sporting cues further differentiate the XKR Portfolio's interior from the XKR with the choice of a new Rich Oak veneer or Engine Spin Aluminum with Piano Black center console and soft-grain, contrast stitched leather throughout the cabin. An alloy and leather gear selector with alloy surround, unique tread plates with Portfolio script and Alston luxury headlining complete the bespoke feel of the interior.

Taking Jaguar's 525W Premium Audio system with Pro Logic II surround sound as a starting point, Bowers & Wilkins have tuned a signature speaker system specifically for the XKR Portfolio's cabin. High output, low distortion Kevlar mid-range speakers and specially designed aluminum-dome tweeters deliver superb mid-range and extended high-frequency responses.

The Jaguar XKR Portfolio is available to order now.

2009MY XK

Available from April 2008 production, Jaguar has also extended the appeal of its award-winning XK and XKR even further with feature enhancements across the range.

For 2009 model year, both the XK and XKR models feature as standard the introduction of iPod and USB connectivity and the standard fitment of an air quality sensor, front park assist and electrochromic and heated power fold-back mirrors.

A new color is also added to the palette – Ultimate Black, replacing Midnight from June 2008.
