We all know that Jaguar has an impressive history behind its name. And sometime those iconic moments need to be celebrated. Like it happens now when Jaguar launched the XE Reims Edition – a model that pay tribute to Jaguar D-Type’s maiden victory in 1954 at the 12-hours of Reims. With Ken Wharton and Peter Whitehead behind the wheel, the D-Type managed to complete over 2,000km at an average speed of 105 mph.
The new XE Rems Edition will be pained in French Racing Blue, combined with a contrasting black paint on the roof, mirror caps and the sill inserts. The car rides on 19-inch, five split-spoke, gloss black alloys. Jaguar will also offer an optional Black Pack that will add black grille with gloss black surround, gloss black side window surrounds and gloss black side vents. An addition Cold Climate pack will add heated windscreen, heated steering wheel, and headlight washers.
Under the hood there will be a 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol engine that delivers a total of 250 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. The special edition will go from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.2 seconds and up to a top speed of 155 mph.
The XE Rems Edition will be limited to only 200 units, each with a price of £38,295.
