accessory body styling package as standard, is available to order
The new 'Sports

athletic, sportier appearance. Available to order at extra cost on
all new X-TYPEs – but standard on the new 2.5 Spirit Limited Edition
– the full range of accessories comprises a new front lower spoiler,
black mesh finish for both upper and lower grille openings , lowered
side sills and a new, lower rear valance. A more pronounced rear
boot spoiler and new exhaust tailpipe finishers also feature.
In addition to the Jaguar Sports Collection treatment, the X –TYPE
2.5 AWD Spirit Limited Editions will bear a unique 'Spirit' badge on
the right hand side of the boot plinth, below the 2.5 engine badge.

includes, cruise control, metallic paint, 8way/2way leather seats,
front sliding armrest, rear armrest with cupholders, bronze Sapele
veneer fascia and door inserts, auto aircon, remote ICE controls,
trip computer and 17" Cayman wheels.
Jaguar Design Director, Ian Callum commented, "This Limited Edition
version has been designed to further enhance the appearance of the
X-TYPE and highlight the benefits and appearance of our body-styling
kits. By emphasising the stance of the X-TYPE by lowering the visual
aspect, the car gains a more aggressive, purposeful look. The whole
attitude of the car has been lowered giving the impression it is
hugging the road."
There will be 450 Spirit Limited Edition cars in a choice of four
different colour combinations; Platinum, Quartz, Ebony and Jaguar
Racing Green. The advertised price will be £23,800 OTR.
Depending on model, the full 'Sports Collection' package can be
ordered for all existing X-TYPE Diesel and petrol saloon vehicles -
or retro-fitted - for around £1,495 excluding wheels.
