Premium Features As Standard On Every XK
To ensure better value than ever before, every XK 4.2-S will come with a host of previously optional specification as standard, together with a number of new features including Bluetooth wireless technology.
Key 2006 MY standard specification now includes electrically operated power-folding side mirrors, headlamp powerwashers, a heated front windscreen with automatic rain sensor, a cupholder, heated and electrically adjustable front seats with memory settings and xenon headlamps for improved visibility when driving at night or in poor weather conditions.
Other premium technology features that are standard fit on all models include Jaguar’s 320W, eight speaker Premium sound system and Bluetooth wireless connectivity (where licence permits). With Bluetooth, a compatible telephone may be wirelessly controlled via the XK's steering wheel controls, without ever leaving the driver's pocket or briefcase, for easy, hands-free use.
Customers of supercharged XKR models will also now enjoy as standard a unique 20-inch split rim BBS Perseus performance alloy wheel, red wheel badges, red Brembo brake callipers and cross-drilled brake discs.
"Jaguar delivers premium products that represent exceptional value," states Jaguar Cars managing director, Bibiana Boerio. "The fact that we are making some of the popular options on the XK standard fitment reinforces this and makes our sports car even more desirable - and attainable."
A True Automotive Pedigree
"From the legendary XK120 that introduced the XK name to the roads, through the current range of coupes and convertibles, Jaguar’s XK sports cars have consistently set the benchmark when it comes to blending luxury, performance and grand touring ability."
Joe Greenwell, Chairman and CEO, Jaguar Cars.
Generations of Jaguar XKs have graced the road for more than half a century. From the legendary lightweight XK120 sports car that was unveiled to a rapturous reception at the 1948 Earls Court Motor Show in London through the iconic E-TYPE (or XK-E as it was also known) of the 1960s and 70s up to the high performance, technically advanced XK range on sale today, every Jaguar sports car to bear the name has been synonymous with sophistication, luxury, performance and beauty in motoring.
