“Taking on the success of the XKR in Jordan and rest of the region, Jaguar has developed a high performance sports car based on the well-proven capabilities of the renowned sports car. The XKR Limited Edition has all the attractions and attributes of the XKR that made it so popular, but is more focused on performance. It is truly a beautiful fast car that will enthral any sports car enthusiast,” said Samir K. Rifai, General Manager of Mahmoudia Motors.

Providing a driver-focused high speed performance experience, the XKR Limited Edition is capable of reaching 0-100 kph in 5.2 seconds.

Distinct styling cues include a contrasting new front aerodynamic splitter, side sill extensions, rear diffuser panel and 20" Senta alloy wheels. A revised rear spoiler provides further visual and aerodynamic enhancement.

While the mechanical specifications and the exterior revisions are driven largely by performance and dynamic enhancement, the interior changes reflect Jaguar's vision of the XKR Limited Edition as an uncompromisingly luxurious sports car. From full soft grained leather with contrast stitching to the use of the acclaimed Bowers & Wilkins surround system, the XKR Limited Edition takes premium sports car ownership to a higher level.
