The Jaguar XE Reims Edition pays tribute to the D-type
Here is the Jaguar XE Reims Edition which pays tribute to the first victory of the D-Type at the 1954 12 Hours of Reims. The car was driven that year by pilots Ken Wharton and Peter Whitehead. The key feature of the XE Reims Edition is of course the painting rightly named French Racing Blue.
This shade was already available on other Jaguars such as the XKR-S and XFR-S in limited edition. Today, it is making its comeback on the little XE. This blue paint contrasts sharply with several bright black parts such as the roof, mirror covers, door sill inserts and 19-inch alloy wheels.
The Jaguar XE Reims Edition also gains some of the equipment previously offered as an option on the classic range. Examples include privacy glass and the exterior Black Pack that adds glossy black to the grille and window surrounds. Heated seats are also included, as are the heated windshield and steering wheel.
The 200 examples of the Jaguar XE Reims Edition will be exclusively dedicated to England. They will receive the P250 2.0L petrol engine with 246 hp. All-wheel drive is standard, as is Apple CarPlay connectivity and parking radars with back-up camera. The Jaguar XE Reims Edition will be available from £38,295.
