Jaguar has been providing the car-buying public with sporty cars, like the XK series, for nearly 75 years. Car companies like to offer a commemorative model to celebrate this sort of landmark, and Jaguar will be offering a new XKR model aptly called the XKR 75.

Those looking for performance mods should be thankful; the car will get a 20 horsepower bump to a total of 530 horsepower out of the 5.0L Supercharged V-8.  This will bump performance from 0-60 4.6 seconds to 4.4 seconds. The top speed will be limited to 174 miles an hour.

The visual modifications done to separate the regular XKR to the 75 are quite understated and handsome. The exterior is painted Stratus Grey accented 20 inch Vortex forged wheels, red brake calipers, and optional body-length graphics.

Inside, the interior is treated to charcoal leather interior with white stitching, a piano black center console and a suedecloth headliner.

Continuing the 75 theme, only 75 of these cars will be produced, at a price of £85,500. The car will be debuting at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Don't expect to see any of these State-side with so little cars being produced.
