New Jaguar XK special edition gets more luxurious cabin

A new Jaguar XK special edition has been introduced. 

The new Artisan SE coupe and convertible models get luxurious scraffito-finished leather on the front seats, instrument binnacle and door linings, along with a leather headlining from Poltrona Frau – an Italian furniture designer. 

Standard features in the Jaguar XK Artisan SE include a Bowers and Wilkins sound system, electronically adjustable heated Performance seats, a heated steering wheel and keyless entry.

Two new colour combinations have been introduced to the interior as well, including navy with jet headlining and truffle with canvas headlining. 

Currently the most expensive Jaguar XK model is the 5.0L Portfolio, which costs £70,550 for the Coupe and £76,550 for the Convertible. The Artisan SE Coupe and Convertible models powered by the same 5.0-litre engine cost £77,350 and £82,500 respectively.

I see this model has a beautiful chrome mesh grille. Is this real metal, or just plated plastic as was found on a car elsewhere in the range?? Speaking of metal versus plastic, and this definitely is not a pop at Jaguar, but all the so-called aluminium, now all over and in new cars. Is this actually aluminium or merely painted plastic??
