XK: an advanced choice
Whether in coupe or convertible form, each Special Edition model benefits from the advanced engineering techniques inherent to the entire Jaguar XKR range. Jaguar is industry-leading in its use of aluminium technology, and both coupe and convertible models utilise riveted and bonded aluminium monocoque construction that means light weight, exceptional rigidity and strength. In combination with continuously variable adaptive damping – standard on all models – and 5.0-litre direct-injection V8 petrol engine in 510PS supercharged form, the result is a beautifully damped yet controlled ride, precise handling, and effortless performance when required.
