Jaguar XK60

Jaguar XK60

Jaguar revealed at the British Motor Show the new XK60 special edition, a model created to celebrate the 60th anniversary of that iconic car. The car will be priced at £60,995 for the Coupe version and £66,995 for the Convertible.

The XK60 is powered by a 4.2-litre naturally aspirated AJ-V8 engine with continuously variable valve timing that delivers 298PS at 6000rpm and 303lb ft (411Nm) at 4100rpm. It makes the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 5,9 seconds (coupe) and 6.0 seconds (convertible). Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph.

The XK60 customer will benefit from dramatic 20-inch Senta alloy wheels, a sporty alloy gear knob and selector-gate surround, plus distinctive body enhancements: a new front spoiler and rear valance panel, chrome-finished side vents and bright upper and lower front grille meshes, special tailpipe finishers and appliqu├ęs on both sides of the car.
