The Top Five Limited Edition Jaguar Models of All-Time

For many decades now, the Jaguar car company is known for fishing out one road monster after another, and all its models are known for combining luxury and performance hence giving credence to the company’s name the “JAGUAR.” For instance, in the early 1960s the company made headlines after it manufactured one of the most beautiful models in the history of cars that even famous Ferrari car maker, Enzo Ferrari commented and said that it was the most beautiful car he’d ever seen. Apart from making beauties, Jaguar is also known for making special editions which commonly get sold out within few months of release. Below is a list of top five limited editions Jaguar models of all time.

Jaguar XKSS

There were only 25 models of this 1957 model of which nine perished in a fire hence making it a limited edition with only 16 models in existence. It was quite a performer both in appearance and in its specifications. It has a 3.4 liter straight six engine with a horsepower of 250. It also has a top speed of 149 mph and accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds. With only 16 models in existence, it is an extremely rare model to come across, and those willing to buy it must be ready to leave serious damages on their bank accounts. It has a classic design and thus will never go out of style. Nonetheless, the company is set to build the nine which burned down so it can finish the collection something which has been received with a lot of excitement.

Jaguar C type roadster

Sold from 1951 to 1953, only 53 models were made, and it was specifically for the track since even the C stands for competition. It has an aluminum body which makes it lightweight and of the 53 built, 43 were for specific owners which practically mean only 10 were for the general market. Thus it is an extremely limited edition Jaguar and people who own it have one thing in common: “they are rich tycoons.” It has an inline 3.4 liter straight 6 engines and a top speed of 165 mph. It gains from 0 to 60 mph in 8 seconds and has a HP of 210 with a 4-speed manual transmission. The C type roadster has a convertible style and a displacement of 210 CID.

Jaguar XKR 175 coupe

If you are a Jaguar fan, you know that each important event on Jaguar’s calendar is celebrated in style and the release of the XKR 175 Coupe was to mark its 75th anniversary. As the name suggests, only 175 units were released, and it is quite a recent model as it was released in 2011. Apart from its extremely sleek and comfy design, the XKR 175 coupe is also excellent in regards to its performance specs. It comes with a high gloss black finish and a top speed of 174 mph. It boasts a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine with a 510 horsepower with a torque of 461 pounds. It easily lunges from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 4.6 seconds.

Jaguar F-type project 7

Thanks to its impeccable style and performance features, this limited edition was immediately sold out soon after its release. There were only 65 models released into the market which made it even more of a limited edition. It represents one of the most performance-focused models with a top speed of 300 km/h and hits a speed of 100km/h in 3.9 seconds. It has a 5.0-liter V8 engine which is capable of attaining 567hp/680 nm. It has an aluminum body which makes it quite lightweight hence easily maneuvers on the road. In addition, it outdoes all the Jaguar Models thanks to the fact that it stops by the use of an electronic limiter while on its top speed. Owing to its success, Jaguar says 250 more models will be released which means it will still remain a limited edition Jaguar as this will have to be divided across all its prominent markets.

Jaguar XJR 100

Released in 2001, this XJR was quite a performer when you put into consideration that the technology in the car making industry was not that advanced yet. It was a limited edition Jaguar as only 500 models were released; thus it is quite rare to come across one in 2017. This unit has a top speed of 250km/h and gains from 0 to 60 mph in approximately 5 seconds and from 0 to 100km/h in 5.3 seconds. The Jaguar XJR100 featured the 4.0 liter V8 motor and a horsepower of 370. When it comes to the physicals, Jaguar XJR100 was quite a beauty and mostly came in the metallic black paint on the exterior and a comfy interior with a leather-covered steering wheel which further made it more comfortable while driving. Lastly, it had a five-speed auto gearbox.
