To capitalise on a strong start to the year and a sales increase of 22 percent for the same period last year, Jaguar Australia today announced a special new limited edition version of the popular XK coupe. And a few are on their way here.
Jaguar says the XK-S is all about performance with style and a large helping of individuality - offering a little more of everything in a limited run package.
It doesn?t end there, of course, with the outside getting 20-inch Senta alloy wheels, new front and rear valance panels, chrome-finished side vents and bright finish upper and lower front mesh grilles.
To officially set it apart from the XK, the XK-S will carry exclusive ?S? badging.
In total, the special features of the XK-S add up to $25,000 value for no additional charge to lucky customer. And lucky is the word, with Jaguar set to offer only nine XK-S models in Australia.
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."
Ringing in at AUD$209,400, the XK-S is available for order right now and can be had in three colours: Indigo Blue, Ultimate Black and Liquid Silver. Interior colour options are Caramel and Warm Charcoal.
It?s not the special XK the world is waiting for (see 2010 Jaguar XK-R), but it?ll do quite nicely.
