The XKR Coupe unveiled at Geneva showcases two new optional performance and styling packs – Speed Pack and Black Pack - that are introduced to the XK range at 2011 Model Year. Jaguar customers have the option to personalize their vehicle to create a car that offers even greater performance without compromising the refinement and luxury.
The XKR Coupe featured at the Geneva Show in March will pair both the optional Speed and Black Packs to create a bold new model, which also sports optional Piano Black veneers on the dashboard and red brake calipers.
The XKR Speed Pack
The XKR Coupe with new optional Speed Pack allows customers to further strengthen their XKR’s already impressive breadth of capability, by extending the car’s top speed from 155mph to an electronically limited 174mph thanks to a unique engine and transmission recalibration.
To ensure the XKR with Speed Pack remains stable at high speeds, the coupe uses a revised front aerodynamic splitter and larger rear spoiler to provide increased balance and reduce lift.
The XKR’s computerized Active Differential Control also adjusts to reduce steering sensitivity at very high speeds, further improving stability and driver control.
Every XKR with the Speed Pack will come with body-colored side sills and rear diffuser. It will also have chrome finish on the window surrounds, upper and lower mesh grilles, side Power Vents and trunk finisher. Red brake calipers with a Jaguar ‘R’ logo sit inside 20” Kasuga alloy wheels.
Customers who order the XKR Coupe with the Speed Pack will be offered a paint palette that is part of the Jaguar Designers’ Choice program – a range of colors specifically chosen to compliment the performance potential of the car. Seven are available – Ultimate Black, Polaris White, Salsa Red, Liquid Silver, Lunar Grey, Kyanite Blue and Spectrum Blue.
The XKR Speed and Black Pack
Customers looking to create a real statement with their Speed Pack XKR Coupe can opt for the new Black Pack, allowing them to own a bold and purposeful Jaguar with undeniable visual impact thanks to menacing gloss black wheels and exterior detailing.
Available only with the Speed Pack, XKRs fitted with the Black Pack have a paint palette selected from colors that Jaguar’s Design team believe to be ideal for creating a coupe with immediate exclusivity. The Black Pack models will be available in Ultimate Black, Polaris White or Salsa Red and boast eye-catching 20” gloss black Kalimnos wheels.
Further gloss black finishing is applied to the window surrounds and front grilles. Red painted brake calipers contrast with the black wheels, while body colored front and rear spoilers and trunk finisher round out the package. Customers also have the option to apply a sweeping ‘XKR’ graphics that run along the door sills. In addition to the Black Pack’s exterior changes, the Jaguar Designers’ Choice program has also selected a range of interior trims that support the visual impact of the car. All XKRs with the Black Pack will be trimmed with Charcoal leather hides that can be personalized with a range of color stitching and grain. Three interior finishes and veneers for the fascia and door trims are also available – Dark Oak, Dark Mesh Aluminum and Piano Black.
