Iron Maiden drummer and long time Jaguar enthusiast, Nicko McBrain, took possession of a bespoke XKR-S that has been “Maidenized.”

McBrain first had an opportunity to drive the XKR-S at the Gaydon test track in the U.K., and on his way to the track the British automaker gave him a ride in a new Range Rover Evoque. After checking out the interior in the Evoque, he decided that he wanted a similar style in the XKR-S he was inevitably going to purchase.

Going with the red and black color scheme he loved in the Evoque, McBrain and the Jaguar team decided to spice up the interior furthermore with Iron Maiden themed accents. On the outside, the XKR-S sports an Ultra Blue finish, which McBrain said is currently not available on the market yet.

The door sills got a custom Nicko McBrain XKR-S engraving while the “Supercharged” on the carbon fiber hood louvers were refinished in the infamous Iron Maiden font. In addition, “Made in Aluminum” was crafted on the piano black veneer above the glove box.
