2008 Jaguar Cars is adding even more appeal to the 'must have'
XKR with the unveiling of the special edition Portfolio model.
The 4.2-litre supercharged sports car will be sold worldwide
and each one will feature notable additions to the already strong
specification of the XKR, which is capable of hitting an electronically
controlled top speed of 155mph and can accelerate to 60mph in
just 4.9 seconds (5.0 seconds for the convertible).
The XKR's already powerful sporting styling cues an enhanced
front bumper, bonnet louvres and aluminium-finish grilles and
side power vents will remain and exclusive Celestial
Black exterior paint and 20-inch polished Cremona five-spoke
alloy wheels add to the overall presence.
The XKR's interior represents a truly sophisticated yet driver-focussed
environment thanks to class-leading ergonomics, user-friendly
in-car technology and simple, clear information displays in
the instrument panel and main dashboard area.
The XKR Portfolio will combine this acclaimed design and performance
with Jaguar's engineering and craftsmanship skills to take the
XKR to an even higher level. Every XKR benefits from its class-leading,
advanced aluminium construction, which ensures that its power
is matched by a dynamic, lightweight chassis that handles supremely,
rides exceptionally well and stops with surefooted reassurance
time after time.
Now, to offer even greater braking ability, Jaguar's Special
Vehicles team has worked alongside leading brake manufacturer
Alcon to create the largest, most powerful brakes a production
Jaguar has ever carried. After extensive testing by experts
at Jaguar's specialist engineering centre (which is based next
to the legendary Nürburgring race circuit in Germany),
the new XKR Portfolio braking system was conceived.
