Jaguar will celebrate 60 years of the XK by unveiling a new-look variant of the current model at next week’s British International Motor Show.
Called the XK60, it be featured alongside a full range of Jaguars at the ExCel Centre in London’s Docklands.
In 1948, Jaguar created what would become one of the most famous automotive names in the world, as the all-new and highly advanced XK engine made its debut in the XK120 sports car.
Sixty years later, the uniquely equipped XK60 hs been designed to recreate the performance of its predecessors.
Alongside the XK60 will be the recently-introduced XKR-S, a limited edition sports coupe in Ultimate Black capable of 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds and with a maximum speed extended to a limited 174mph.
This is the fastest Jaguar since the XJ220 supercar. With just 50 available in the UK, every XKR-S is already spoken for.
Jaguar’s runaway success, the Birmingham-built XF saloon, will also be featured on the company’s stand.
Jaguar has sold more than 21,000 units of the XF worldwide since it was launched in March and still has more than 7,000 order in the bank.
