In 1948, Jaguar created what would become one of the most famous automotive names in the world, as the all-new and highly advanced XK engine made its debut in the revered XK120 sports car. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of that iconic car, Jaguar launched a very special series of the current XK for the UK market – the uniquely equipped and aptly named XK60, a car that pays homage to the legendary performance of its predecessors.
Like every Jaguar to carry the XK badge, the XK60 is all about performance with style – plus a large helping of individuality. And as the XKR Portfolio and XKR-S Special Editions brought something extra to the supercharged XK models, the XK60 offers its own spin on the naturally aspirated 4.2-litre V8 XK, in both coupé and convertible forms.
The car offers a host of additional extras beyond the XK’s already impressive specification, benefitting from dramatic 20-inch Senta alloy wheels, a sporty alloy gear knob and selector-gate surround, plus distinctive body enhancements: a new front spoiler and rear valance panel, chrome-finished side vents and bright upper and lower front grille meshes, special tailpipe finishers and appliqués on both sides of the car.
This wonderful XK60 presents in excellent condition throughout and is attractively finished in silver with luxurious cream interior. A suitable homage to the iconic XK series and an excellent addition to any Jaguar enthusiast’s garage.
