Car models come and go, but it’s typical for the last edition of each model to do something spectacular and the Jaguar XF answers the curtain call with a XF R-Sport Black Edition.
The new Jaguar XF model is due out this autumn and it’s sure to please the crowds, but before you get the balloons and streamers ready, the XF R-Sport Black Edition says “Look at me”! This edition is dressed to thrill and it starts with the 20 inch Kalimnos alloy wheels and a choice of exterior colors including; Kyanite Blue, Italian Racing Red, Glacier White, Ultimate Black, and Stratus Gray. And one of the most unique colors, the Kyanite Blue is limited to only 100 units sold. The R-Sport Black edition is available in these colors at no extra cost.
The extensive list of enhancements doesn’t stop with just wheels and paint colours, the car also comes exclusively with the 2.2 litre turbocharged 200PS diesel engine. The Black Pack includes a 770 watt Meridian sound system and electric full bond leather sports seats with 18-way adjustments with memory function. The R-Sport models already have a standard Winter Comfort and Parking Pack and a Gloss Dark Oak veneer to add the finishing touches to a classy ride. The long list of goodies also includes; heated seats, heated windscreen, front parking sensors, and rear-view camera. These type of premium trim items are what owners have come to expect from Jaguar and it is what will keep them at the top of the class in most categories.
Jaguar did make the decision to drop the 3.0 liter V6 petrol engine option, so the XF is currently only available with a choice of the 503 horsepower diesel or the 5.0 litre V8 petrol engine (543 horsepower) in the XFR and XFR-S. Jaguar must be doing something right because sales of the XF have increased every year since its release.
To help sweeten the deal on this special R-Sport Black edition Jaguar is offering a reduction in cost of the package. They claim £8,770 worth of premium options for cost of only £2,100, so potential buyers should have some instant equity built into their purchase (if they care about that sort of thing). Jaguar hopes that this limited edition will satisfy consumers until the all-new XF arrives later this year.
The long list of features found on this new Black edition may only be matched by it long name, when called out correctly the 2015 Jaguar XF R-Sport Black is kind of like saying someone’s full name. Time will tell if the loyal fans will run to fetch this sharp dressed sedan (saloon) and take her for a night out on the town. I’d say you will be the belle of the ball in this ride.
