2012 Jaguar XK and XKR Special Edition

Every Jaguar XK is a representation of advanced engineering coupled with a cosseting luxury and the 2012 Jaguar XK & XKR Special Editions are no exception.

They even further enhance the luxuriousness of the XK through handcrafted Artisan interiors.


The Artisan interior, used in the Special Edition models, introduces ‘scraffito’ finished, tactile leather on the front seats, the instrument binnacle, rear quarter casings and door casings. Two veneer finishes (Dark Figured Aluminum and Shadow Walnut) combined with leather head-linings are available.

Also included in the modified interior is a Bowers and Wilkins sound system, heated steering wheel, heated Performance seats, keyless entry and keyless start.

Also standard in all models is the 7″ touch screen that offers navigation system control and a wide range of other features. Adaptive Cruise Control and Adaptive Front lighting features are optional extras.


Complimenting the sumptuous materials used, two exclusive ‘Artisan colorways’ have been specifically designed for the XK and XKR Special Edition models – Canvas with Truffle head linings and Navy with Jet head linings.

Hood colors of the convertible models are also available in a range of carefully selected colors including Black, Grey, Blue and Brown. Additional discreet enhancements include stainless steel pedals and Special Edition tread plates.

The Special Edition XK/XKR exclusive exterior color is Celestial Black, however, Ultimate Black, Lunar Grey, Rhodium Silver, Crystal Blue and Polaris White are available alternatives. In addition to the new color palette, two new 20 inch alloy wheel designs are available to choose from.

Special Edition

Whether you buy the new Special Edition in Convertible or Coupe form, both models utilize the advanced engineering techniques found in other Jaguar XK/XKR models. Jaguar is the industry leader in the use of aluminum technology and both models are lightweight yet exceptionally rigid and strong.


Standard in all models is the 5.0 liter direct injection V8 engine which is available in two versions: naturally aspirated 385 hp in the XK and a supercharged 550 hp in the XKR. The result is a controlled ride that is beautifully damped, precise handling and an effortless high performance.
