Jaguar has confirmed that with the arrival of the new F-Type, next year will be the last for its veteran XK Series. This week in New York, it announced a sendoff that will feature the 2015 Jaguar XK Final Fifty Limited Edition.

To be based on the XKR model with its supercharged 510-horsewpower V8, the Final Fifty will consist of 25 Coupe and 25 Convertible models, all finished in Ultimate Black - including black tops on the cabriolets. In addition to a louvered hood and a full chassis revamp with Adaptive Dynamic Suspension culled from the XKR-S GT model, each Final Fifty car will gain additional functional and cosmetic cues. That added one-two punch comes courtesy of the Dynamic Pack and Performance Pack. Collectively they include a full body kit including a larger rear wing and enhanced rear diffuser, 20-inch forged alloy wheels and a more aurally exciting Performance Active Exhaust system plus leather-covered Performance seats that feature a Diamond Sewn stitch pattern. Like the XKR-S GT, the still-electronically-limited top speed on the XK Final Fifty editions will jump from 155 mph to 174 mph.

In addition to the above modifications, each of the XK Final Fifty cars will be fitted with special door-sill plates as well as a serialized number plate on the center console bearing the signature of Ian Callum, current Jaguar Design Director and the creative force behind the latest-gen XK. Pricing for the 2015 Jaguar XK Final Fifty Coupe and Convertible models will be announced closer to their on-sale date.
