Continuing the series of special edition models launched to celebrate its 75th birthday, Jaguar today announced the release of the XF V8 75th Anniversary for the Australian market. Set to arrive in dealerships in the fourth quarter of the year with a starting price of AUS$128,900 [US$111,500 or €90,650] - plus on road costs, the special edition XF boast some extremely mild cosmetic and equipment upgrades over the standard 5.0 V8 model.
The Anniversary edition gets 20-inch 'Senta' alloy wheels, exhaust tail pipe finishers, a Portable Audio Interface and special "75 Years" badge on centre console. Other standard features include 8 way electric seats, keyless start, automatic climate control, and cruise control.
There are no mechanical changes with the XF V8 75th Anniversary Edition being powered by Jag's naturally-aspirated 5.0 Litre AJ-V8 Gen III engine with 283kW of power and 515 Nm of torque that propels the premium sedan from 0-100km/h in 5.7 seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.
