Jaguar is celebrating its 75th anniversary today with the debut of the limited edition 2011 Jaguar XKR175 Coupe. The model made its debut at the McCalls Motorworks Revival at the Monterey Jet Center during the Pebble Beach Automotive Weekend.
Power for the XKR175 comes from a supercharged V8 making 510-hp and 461 lb-ft of torque. That allows the top speed for the XKR to be raised to 174 mph (electronically-limited). Not sure if you’ll ever hit that top speed of 174 mph but if you do, Jaguar has added some upgrades to make sure that the XKR175 remains stable at high speeds. Modifications include a revised aerodynamic package incorporates a new front air dam, new side sills, a new rear diffuser and a larger rear spoiler providing increased balance and a reduction in lift.
Looks wise the Jaguar XKR175 gets new 20-inch Kasuga 10-spoke alloy wheels, red brake calipers and Ultimate Black exterior paint. Inside, door sill tread plates reading “XKR175 ““ 1 of 175” remind the driver just how much they spend to get an exclusive 175.
Speaking of money, prices for the XKR175 start at $104,500. Production will be limited to just 175 units.
