Jaguar has announced a range of enhancements to its XJ luxury sports saloon. The 2018 model year (2018MY) updates include the introduction of the XJR575 performance flagship model, a host of technology upgrades and the addition of the latest intelligent safety features.
The new XJR575 is the most dynamic derivative in the lineup and delivers 575bhp of power and 700Nm of torque for effortless acceleration and refinement. The 25bhp uplift in power is delivered by Jaguar Land Rover’s 5-litre V8 supercharged engine and powers the sports saloon from zero to 100km/h in 4.4 seconds and to a top speed of 300km/h.
Available in the standard-wheelbase bodystyle, the XJR575 reinforces the XJR’s standing as Jaguar’s fastest XJ saloon. Customers will be able to choose between two bespoke exterior colour finishes created at Special Vehicle Operations’ state-of-the-art Oxford Road facility – Velocity Blue and Satin Corris Grey.
Tailor-made exterior details include a rear spoiler, side sills, front bumper and lower air intakes featuring Gloss Black surrounds. Updated “XJR575” exterior badging and twin bonnet louvres mark the vehicle out from the rest of the range, while 20-inch Farallon gloss-black wheels with red-painted brake callipers are the final dynamic flourish.
Inside, the XJR575 features bespoke embossed tread plates, “575” intaglio and diamond-quilted seating available in Jet/Jet and Ivory/Jet colour options and finished with additional “575” branding.
