Jaguar will stop making the XK sports car later this year, and the company has announced introduction of the XK Final Fifty Edition at the New York Auto Show. The limited edition model will go on sale late this year and will be exclusive to the US market.
The Final Fifty Edition based on the XKR and will be made in two body styles, Coupe’s and Convertibles, of which 25 will be coupes and 25 convertibles. This is also an understated tribute to the Jaguar E-Type that also ended its production run with 50 special editions.
The car will get an Ultimate Black exterior with an XKR-S GT hood and 20-inch forged wheels. The limited edition model will be equipped with the Dynamic and Performance packages that adds aerodynamic side skirts, a rear diffuser and a rear wing.
Inside the cabin things aren’t changed noticeably but it does get performance seats a Jet Suedecloth steering wheel and unique door sill plates. Jaguar will fit all these cars with Bowers & Wilkins audio and a badge with the signature of Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum.
