Jaguar X150

Der X150 ist ein Fahrzeug der Oberklasse, das vom britischen Automobilhersteller Jaguar produziert wurde. Der X150 wurde unter der Bezeichnung Jaguar XK in den Karosserievarianten Coupé und Cabriolet verkauft und in drei Leistungsstufen angeboten. Es ersetzt seinen Vorgänger XK8.

Der XK wurde auf der IAA 2005 vorgestellt und erschien im März 2006, zunächst mit 4,2 l V8-Motor. Dabei blieb der Motor weitgehend unverändert. Mitte 2007 folgte eine auf 3,5 l Hubraum verkleinerte Version des 4,2 l-Motors.

Im Juli 2014 lief die Produktion ohne einen Nachfolger aus.

Allgemeines

Die aus Aluminium bestehende Karosserie wurde unter dem Jaguar-Designchef Ian Callum entworfen und zeigt das neue und modernere Design Jaguars. Durch die Gewichtsersparnis gegenüber dem Vorgänger kann der Wagen bessere Fahrleistungen erzielen. Während das Äußere die Abkehr von den klassischen Formen verdeutlichen soll, wurde das Interieur Jaguar-typisch mit verschiedenen Holz- und Lederarten ausgestattet.

Mit dem XKR-S legte Jaguar eine limitierte Kleinserie (200 Exemplare) auf Basis des XKR auf. Der XKR-S weist die gleiche Leistung wie der XKR auf. Stattdessen hat Jaguar das Design des Wagens modifiziert. Tiefer gezogene Front- und Heckschürzen, neue Seitenschweller sowie ein Heckflügel setzen noch sportlichere Akzente. Zudem ist der XKR-S mit stärkeren, rennsporterprobten Alcon-Bremsen, einer direkteren ZF-Lenkung und mit einem Sportfahrwerk in Verbindung mit 20-Zoll-Rädern ausgestattet. Im August 2008 kam das Sondermodell für 116.900 € auf den deutschen Markt.

Auf der London Motor Show 2008 hatte ein zweites Sondermodell namens XK60 Premiere, das das sechzigjährige Bestehen der XK-Reihe symbolisiert. Es ist sowohl als Cabrio als auch als Coupé erhältlich. Der Motor entspricht dem 4.2. Zu den Ausstattungsmerkmalen der Jubiläumsausgabe gehören unter anderem 20-Zoll-Felgen, ein neuer Frontspoiler und zahlreiche Chromapplikationen. Gebaut wurde die Sonderedition ab Juli 2008.

Die Preise beliefen sich umgerechnet auf rund 77.000 Euro für das Coupé und etwa 85.000 Euro für das Cabriolet.

Modellpflege

Ab Mitte 2007 wurden einzelne Änderungen am ursprünglichen Modell des XK durchgeführt. So ist unter anderem die klassische ausfahrbare Antenne am hinteren rechten Kotflügel entfallen und wurde ab diesem Zeitpunkt im Heckspoiler untergebracht. Des Weiteren wurden kleinere Änderungen am Interieur vorgenommen.

Im Februar 2009 wurde ein überarbeiteter XK eingeführt, der senkrechte Lüftungskiemen in der Frontschürze und LED-Blinklichter in den Außenspiegeln hat. Auch die Rückleuchten erhielten LED-Technik. Die Heckschürze wurde weiter nach unten gezogen. Die Auspuffendrohre wurden nun oval. Im Innenraum sind die Instrumente im Armaturenträger nun weiß beleuchtet. Außerdem entfiel seither der Automatikwählhebel in der Mittelkonsole, der durch den versenkbaren Drehknauf ersetzt wird. Mit der Modellpflege hielten auch neue Motoren Einzug in den XK.

Im September 2011 wurde die XK-Reihe erneut modifiziert.

Dabei wurden die Scheinwerfer verkleinert, neu gestaltet und erhielten hierbei nun LED-Tagfahrlicht. Der Kühlergrill wurde verändert, sowie die neue Frontschürze mit seitlichen Lufteinlässen. Am Heck zog eine schmalere Chromleiste ein. Die Leuchten, die über LED-Technik verfügen, wurden neu gestaltet.

Parallel dazu wurde auch das neue Topmodell XKR-S eingeführt. Auf der L.A. Motor Show 2011 wurde zudem die Cabriovariante des XKR-S vorgestellt.

Motoren

Nachdem zunächst nur der XK 4.2 verfügbar war, kam im Sommer 2006 der Jaguar XKR mit Kompressoraufladung hinzu. Optisch ist die R-Version an einem Kühlergrill in Gitteroptik, zusätzlichen Entlüftungsöffnungen auf der Motorhaube, an Lufteinlässen in der Frontschürze zur Bremsenkühlung und an einer Abgasanlage mit zwei runden Doppelendrohren erkennbar.

Im Februar 2009 wurde der AJ-V8 Gen III mit 5,0 Litern eingeführt.

Chronology
Predecessor Jaguar XK8
Successor Jaguar F-Type

The Jaguar XK (project code X150) is the second generation of the Jaguar XK grand tourer from Jaguar Cars. The vehicle was unveiled in 2005 at the Frankfurt Motor Show with the first generation’s 4.2-litre V8 engine. The XK convertible was unveiled in 2006 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. A facelifted XK was launched in 2009 with a new 5.0-litre V8. The production of the XK ended in summer 2014.

Design

The X150 design was completed in 2002 and was previewed by Advanced Lightweight Coupé (ALC) which was first seen at the 2005 North American International Auto Show. The designer, Ian Callum, was also responsible for the Aston Martin DB7 and Vanquish coupés. The X150’s grille is inspired by that of the 1961 Jaguar E-Type.[citation needed]

2010 Jaguar XKR (US)

Pre-facelift Jaguar XKR Cabriolet (Germany)

The XK received a facelift in 2009,[3] with minor alterations to front and rear lighting and bumper designs, together with the introduction of a new 5.0-litre V8 for both the naturally aspirated XK and the supercharged XKR. The interior also received some changes, in particular the introduction of the XF style rotary gear selector mated to the new ZF automatic transmission. In 2010, Jaguar added the Speed Pack option, with aerodynamic bodykit and speed limiter increased to 174 mph (280 km/h), and the Black Pack, with black wheels and trim. The XK received a second and more minor facelift in 2011 with new front bumper and light design,[4] which was presented at the New York Auto Show.

The range was extended in 2011, with the introduction of the new XKR-S at the Geneva Motor Show, featuring an upgraded XKR engine producing 550 PS (405 kW; 542 hp),[5] and torque of 680 N·m (502 lb·ft). The XKR-S badge was first used on the 2008 special edition XK. Jaguar claimed that this new version is the fastest production Jaguar ever,[citation needed] a top speed of 186 mph (299 km/h) and acceleration from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 4.2 seconds (0–100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds). The suspension & steering modifications, and Vulcan one-piece wheels, from the XKR-S were also made available as the Dynamic Pack for the XKR.
