Jaguar has announced two special edition models for its XK sports car in the Britain called Signature and Dynamic R. Available to order now at UK dealers, the two models are available in both Coupé and Convertible form.
Based on the existing XKR, the Jaguar XK Dynamic R is a performance-focused model powered by the 510PS 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine and fitted with a standard Black Dynamic Pack including XKR-S suspension and dynamics and a 10mm (0.39in) reduction in ride height, Speed Pack aerodynamic upgrades and a Performance Active Exhaust.
Other additions include the Active Differential Control technology and the new Diamond Sewn Performance seat with contrast stitch. The Speed pack increases top speed to 174 mph (280 km/h), while the 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) sprint is covered in 4.6 seconds.
The Jaguar XK Signature edition is a more luxury focused model that’s powered by the 385PS 5.0-liter V8 engine and features standard equipment such as 20-inch Kalimnos wheels and Reverse Park Camera. The XK Signature can reach 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.2 seconds in Coupé guise, and 5.3 seconds for the Convertible, with top speed being electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h) for both variants.
Both the XK Dynamic R and XK Signature models are fitted with a six-speed ZF automatic gearbox with steering wheel-mounted paddles.
Interior details for the XK Signature include Luxury seats available in Ivory or Charcoal soft grain leather, Canvas Suedecloth headlining, Figured Ebony veneers and Bright Metal sport pedals. The XK Dynamic R brings diamond sewn Performance seats in either Ivory/Charcoal soft grain leather with Ivory contrast stitch or Charcoal/Red soft grain leather with Red contrast stitch leather.
