Jaguar XK news - Swingin' Sixties - 2008

Read more on:

The Jaguar XK turns 60 this year. Though
it has changed just a fraction over the last six decades and to commemorate the
occasion, Jaguar unveiled a special edition XK at the Brit Motor Show.

(What we wouldn’t give for a
wire-wheels-and-split-windscreen version now.)

It’s called the XK60 and is,
essentially, a bit of a bodykit job. No matter, though - it looks awesome.

Round the front, there’s a new front
spoiler and grille mesh, while the back gets a new valance and shiny new
tailpipes. Oh, and a nice new set of 20-inch wheels.

They’re only subtle tweaks to the XK’s
already-rather-nice looks, but they’re the sort of subtle tweaks we like.

Besides some shiny chrome stuff in the
cabin, the rest is stock XK - so it’s the same naturally aspirated V8 under the
 bonnet.

The XK60
costs the same as the standard XK, and is available in both coupe and
convertible form, so why wouldn’t you?
