Phoenix Arizona is a city built around the road: Freeways, byways, highways, side streets, surface streets…when you spend a good portion of your day as a Phoenix Valley driver on the road, the car you drive matters. Some of us may lean more towards openeing up at high speeds on the open trails, while others may be more concerned about the plushness and lushness of an interior. In this post we bring you an automotive company that is known for striving to offer the best of both worlds in each one of its automobiles: Jaguar. More specifically, the luxury next generation Jaguar XK.
The Jaguar XK has been around as a brand name for 16 years now. Like any quality product, the Jaguar XK undergoes its own self motivated reinvention with each new generation introduced. Now, a Kia is a quality vehicle, but not in the same way as a Jaguar XK. The difference between a quality vehicle and the rest is not a plush interior or flashy end line specs. The difference between a “Jaguar” quality vehicle and any other is the attitude at the engineers desk. When a new generation of Jaguar is unveiled, one can see the love that was put into it. A Jaguar is not merely a product, but it is a work of art, and a result of multiple lifetimes of honed craftmanship on the design team’s part.
Jaguar has proven this truth again and with more strength and conviction than ever before with the debut of their next generation Jaguar XK at the Geneva Motor Show.
Available in both coupe and convertible form, the Special Edition model’s Artisan interior introduces the use of tactile ‘scraffito’ finished leather to the front seats, instrument binnacle, door and rear quarter casings. In combination with Poltrona Frau leather headlinings, two new veneer finishes – Shadow Walnut and Dark Figured Aluminium – and standard features including a 525W Bowers & Wilkins sound system, 16 by 16 way adjustable heated Performance seats, a heated steering wheel and keyless entry/start, each Special Edition model promises a heightened level of opulence and comfort.
To complement the sumptuous use of materials, Jaguar’s design team, led by Director of Design Ian Callum, specified two exclusive Artisan interior colourways for the Special Edition models; Navy with Jet headlining and Truffle with Canvas headlining. Convertible hood colours have also been carefully selected and include Black, Blue, Grey and Brown. Special Edition treadplates and stainless steel pedals are additional discreet enhancements.
An exterior paint palette of three colours includes the exclusive Special Edition colour of Celestial Black, Polaris White and Rhodium Silver being the alternative options. A new 20-inch alloy wheel design completes the exterior changes; Orona style with a polished finish.
Phoenix Arizona luxury and automotive enthusiasts can view and test drive any current production model Jaguar at Scottsdale Jaguar, as well as place an order for the first shipment of new Jaguar XK models to the Phoenix Valley area.
