Jaguar to unveil XK 4.2-S
Geneva, Switzerland – Jaguar will unveil new XK 4.2-S models at the Geneva International Salon.
Available as a coupe or convertible, with a naturally aspirated V8 or a supercharged one, the car is also upgraded inside with styling changes and premium equipment. “Last year we made sure that the XK range was able to stand the test of time with a wide range of exterior design changes such as a deeper mouth for the front air intake, new sills and a revised rear bumper and spoiler,” says Jaguar Cars design director Ian Callum. “Now we have additional new unique colours and interior trims to allow customers to drive a Jaguar with a bespoke interior feel.”
In recognition of Jaguar’s racing heritage, special badging and accents will adorn all 2006 models, including the 4.2-S. Polished door treadplates feature chequered flag emblems, and there are leather-edged embossed floor mats. The revised white Jaguar badge features chequered flag accents on its sides, and the rear light clusters are darkened. Like other XK models, it will include advanced Dynamic Stability Control, Adaptive Cruise Control and Jaguar’s Adaptive Restraint Technology System.
