These days it’s one bad news after another, if it’s not car companies going broke, its car salesmen trying to destroy their own cars. Well here is some good news.
Indian owned luxury car maker Jaguar has started 2009 with a 22% increase in sales (on a year on year basis). To celebrate, the brand is releasing a new XK limited edition model, the XK-S.
The new model will offer additional features for no additional cost. Jaguar says the XK-S is all about performance with style, and we can’t argue!
Powered by Jaguar’s 4.2 litre V8, additional features include 20-inch Senta alloy wheels, luxury sports interior (including soft grain leather and 16 x 16 way seats), a sporty brushed aluminium gear knob and bright finish pedals.
Furthermore new front and rear valence panels, chrome-finished side vents and bright finish upper and lower front mesh grilles, special tailpipe finishers and appliqués on both sides of the car are included in the package.
Jaguar says the additional features are a built up option list worth $25,000. To make the distinction more noticeable, all XK-S models will carry exclusive “S” badging.
To make this car even more exclusive, only nine XK-S Jaguars will be sold in Australia.

It combines outstanding performance and dramatic beauty with individual touches of craftsmanship and equipment that lift it to another level”. Chris Lidis, General Manager, Jaguar Australia.
