Jaguar XKR-S GT
The success of the XKR-S resulted in the development of an even more focused and dynamic version, the XKR-S GT. A limited run of 30 vehicles were produced for the North American market. Changes to the XKR-S include enhanced aerodynamic components and suspension development to increase downforce and optimize high-speed cornering ability. The front track was widened by 2", spring rates and camber were increased, steering was quickened, and bushings were revised. The model also represents the Jaguar brand's first use of carbon ceramic brakes.
Jaguar announced a special limited edition to mark the end of the XK production. Only 50 will be sold, all in the US. The Final Fifty is based on the XKR with dynamic pack.The exterior is identifiable by an extra-louvered hood inspired by the XKR-S GT, “Vortex” 20-inch wheels, a rear wing, side sill extensions, and a rear diffuser. The Final Fifty cars are split evenly in 25 coupe and 25 convertible body styles and all cars will be fitted with a commemorative plaque signed by Jaguar’s design chief Ian Callum.
