The current Jaguar XKR will go out with a bang for the 2015 model year.
The British automaker has announced that it will exclusively offer U.S. customers a limited-edition XK model called the XK Final Fifty limited edition, which will be based on the 510-hp XKR and will be limited to 25 coupes and 25 convertibles. The 2015 XK Final Fifty will be the last 50 XKR vehicles produced for the U.S. market and will be built this summer to arrive showrooms in early fall. To create the Final Fifty edition, Jaguar drew inspiration from the special final edition of the iconic E-Type in 1974.

All the limited edition vehicles will be painted in Ultimate Black while the convertible variant will feature a black top. Enhancing the styling of the Final Fifty XKR is a louvered hood from the XKR-S GT while on the inside, the limited edition model will be identified by a special badge on the center console and an inscribed doorsill treadplate.
The XK Final Fifty edition will also include both the Dynamic Pack and Performance Pack and will come with 20-inch wheels. Under the hood is a 5.0-liter V8 supercharged engine with 510 hp and 461 lb-ft of torque allowing it to accelerate to 60 mph from a standstill in 4.6 seconds with a top speed of 174 mph.
Expect pricing on the Jaguar XK Final Fifty limited edition to be announced closer to its release.
