Jaguar XKR 175 Coupe

Jaguar has officially launched the limited edition 2011 XKR175 Coupe. Marking the car’s first North American appearance, the XKR175 will debut at the McCalls Motorworks Revival at the Monterey Jet Center during the Pebble Beach Automotive Weekend.

Jaguar originally stated that the XKR175 would come packing 530 horsepower and 483 lb-ft of torque, but those figures have apparently been watered down. The 2011 XKR175 will hit showrooms with a more modest rating of 510 horsepower and 461 lb-ft of torque, good for a top speed of 174mph.

In order to distinguish the XKR175 from lesser XK models, it comes equipped with a new front air dam, revised side sills, a new rear diffuser and a larger rear wing – all adding to the car’s high-speed stability. New 20-inch wheels are part of the package, as are red brake calipers and an Ultimate Black paint scheme. Read more of this post

Paying for all those Z06 bits boosts the price by $4510 over the old Z51, but at $55,720 to start, it’s about 20 grand cheaper than the aluminum-frame 7.0-liter Z06. Customers have evidently been clamoring for such a package so loudly that the team expects up to half of all Corvette sales to be Grand Sports.
