Like any self-respecting sports car manufacturer in this day and age, Jaguar have started making themselves special edition models as birthday presents. To mark their 75th anniversary they've come up with this, the Jaguar XKR 75. Thankfully it's not just a special badge and some stripes which set it apart, they've also taken the time to tinker with the engineering and come up with some more power and tighter handling.

The supercharged 5.0 litre of the XKR 75 now produces 530 horsepower and 655 Nm of torque. That means the 0-60 mph time has been dropped by 2/10ths of a second to 4.4 seconds. Of course for most people that's not much of an issue. But when you pull up at the golf club in one of these, all the other Hermans in their standard XKRs are going to know you've got the 'fast one'. And just so they can hear you coming, the XKR 75 is also equipped with an improved acoustics package for the semi-active sports exhaust system.

The Jaguar XKR 75 has also had some work done in the suspension department to ensure increased agility and precision. The changes include increased spring and damper rates, a 15mm reduction in ride height, and a recalibrated Adaptive Dynamics damper control system.

To match sportier suspension setup, Jaguar's aerodynamic engineers have also played with the bodywork to provide added stability at speed. They've done this through a combination of a new front splitter, deeper side sills, a rear diffuser and a larger rear spoiler. Other exterior changes include unique 'Stratus Grey' paintwork, optional graphics, red brake calipers and 20" lightweight alloy wheels with a dark grey finish.

The interior of the XKR 75 is trimmed in charcoal leather with contrasting ivory stitching. The trim pieces and center console are finished in high-gloss black.

Jaguar are only making 75 examples of the special edition car - expect to pay about 15 percent more than you would for a run of the mill XKR coupe. Oh yeah, and you also need to be living in either the UK, Germany, France, Italy, The Netherlands or Belgium.
