Get the full story about the Jag XKR175 limited edition, with its 174mph top speed, inside.
Jaguar is using the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the brand. For the crowd of car fans, the English brand will be wheeling out the limited edition 2011 Jaguar XKR175 Coupe for its North American debut.
Limited to 175 units, the car uses a 510-horsepower (380-kW) supercharged V8 that generates up to 461 ft-lb (624 Nm) of torque. Top speed is kept to an electronically-limited 174mph (280 km/h). To keep the car under the driver's control, Jaguar installed a new rear diffuser, a big rear spoiler, along with a revised front air dam and remodeled side sills.
Painted in Ultimate Black, the car sits on 20-inch Kasuga alloy wheels. Bright red brake calipers can be seen through the ten spokes of the wheels. From inside the cabin, everyone will stay comfortable in the Warm Charcoal leather, touched up with Cranberry stitching. The wood veneer trim is finished in Piano Black, and series number badging can be spotted on the door sills.
Those wanting to buy the car will have to shell out $104,500, which includes the destination charge. The car will be on display throughout the entire Pebble Beach Automotive Weekend.
