An exclusive XKR - the XKR 75 - made its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on July 2 2010. Jaguar Land Rover's then CEO, Dr Ralf Speth, initiated the challenge to the Jaguar engineering team to construct an XKR to celebrate Jaguar's 75th anniversary, which would deliver a combination of enhanced performance, superb chassis and steering control and grip levels to inspire the driving enthusiast to explore the true potential of the XKR's capabilities. Jaguar engineers increased the power and torque of the acclaimed 5.0-litre supercharged engine to 530PS and 655Nm respectively for the XKR 75, to deliver truly outstanding performance. While the limited edition model's top speed is electronically limited to 174mph (280km/h), the XKR 75's 0-60mph (100km/h) acceleration time is reduced from 4.6 to 4.4 seconds compared to the standard 510 PS XKR. The Jaguar XKR 75 features revised suspension and handling for increased precision and agility in addition to the performance enhancements. To ensure the XKR 75 remains stable at high speeds, a revised aerodynamic body pack with a front splitter, side sills extensions, a rear diffuser and larger rear spoiler provide increased balance and a reduction in lift. The XKR's computerised Active Differential Control also adjusts to reduce steering sensitivity at very high speeds, further improving stability and driver control. And with an improved acoustics package for the semi-active sports exhaust, the XKR 75 produces a pulse-racing growl to match its performance. The car's driver-focussed character, however, has not been achieved at the expense of the Jaguar traditional values of refinement and comfort. "We conceived the XR 75 as a sports car with a duality of character that makes it perfectly suited to driving across Europe to the Nurburgring, completing some very fast laps, and then driving home again, added Mike Cross, Chief Engineer Vehicle Integrity. The XKR 75 features a new Stratus Grey finish. Red brake callipers contrast the eye-catching 20-inch gloss Vortex forged lightweight alloys with a dark technical finish and diamond turn. The XKR 75's interior completes the driver-focussed performance environment finished in Charcoal with ivory stitch, piano black finish to facia and centre console and a Jet suedecloth headlining. The unique features of the exclusive new XKR 75 include: Increased performance through detailed engine and transmission recalibration, Power increased to 530PS (compared to 510 PS on XKR), Torque increased to 655Nm (compared to 625Nm on XKR), Upgraded torque converter to handle the increased torque, Upgraded suspension systems for increased precision and agility, Increased spring and damper rates (front springs 28 per cent stiffer, rear springs 32 per cent stiffer), New fully-machined aluminium front and revised rear suspension upright for increased camber stiffness (increased by 25 per cent), Re-tuned Adaptive Dynamics damper control software, Reduced ride height (10mm front and 10mm rear), Aerodynamic body pack with body coloured finish to front splitter, side sills extensions and rear diffuser, and body coloured larger rear spoiler and rear trunk lid finisher, Sports exhaust with improved performance and acoustics - system has new crossover pipe and larger exhaust outlets, Stratus Grey exterior paint, Red brake callipers surrounding 20" Vortex forged lightweight alloy wheels, diamond turned with dark grey finish, XKR performance interior in Charcoal and Ivory stitch leather, with Jet suedecloth headlining and XKR 75 tread plate Active front lighting, Production of the XKR 75 was limited to 75 vehicles, of which just 20 were RHD. In 2010 it was priced at £85,500 OTR. This particular car was supplied new by Charles Hurst of Belfast in 2010 and is accompanied by a letter from the dealer confirming the vehicle’s authenticity as a limited edition of only one of 20 ever supplied to the UK market. The car was acquired by Jaguar Land Rover in 2014 and has been used only as a static display vehicle within our collection.
