Jaguar is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the XK at the British Motor Show, producing the limited-edition XK60 in homage to its predecessors.

Powered by a 4.2-litre V8 petrol engine producing 292bhp and 303lb ft of pulling power, the car is available in both coupe and convertible forms.

The coupe travels from 0-60mph in 5.9 sec and the convertible in 6.0 sec. The top speed is limited to 155mph.

Features include 20-inch alloys, an alloy gearknob and gearstick surround, a new front spoiler, chrome-finished side vents, polished upper and lower front grille meshes, and special tailpipe finishers.

Jaguar will start building the XK60 this month, with the coupe costing from 60,995 and the convertible from 66,995 - the same prices as for the standard XKs.
