Super sporty XK

Super sporty XK

The slinky V8 cat with a lion's mane.

Jaguar will launch its lovely XK-S this month.

Not to be confused with the hi-po XK-R, the S version is basically an upspec sports pack. It takes the 4.2 litre V8 XK Coupe and hots it up with 20-inch 'Senta' alloys, chromed grilles and gills, chrome tailpipes, matching brushed aluminium interior highlights, and leather seats with 16x16 adjustment.

And an S badge, of course.

How it adds up to $25,000-worht of extras, we aren't exactly sure - but you can buy its exclusivity. Only nine cars will come into the country.

XK-S is available in Indigo blue, Ultimate Black, and Liquid Silver, matched to either a caramel or charcoal interior, for a super S price of $209,400.
