New top version: Jaguar XJR575 with 5.0 liter V8 (575 hp)

Jaguar has further improved and refined the sporty, luxurious XJ. In addition, the British carmaker announces a new top version: the sporty XJR575. Yes, the numbers indicate the power. There are also numerous technology upgrades and the latest intelligent safety features on board.

The XJ is the top of Jaguar’s model range. The impressive, refined model combines ultimate luxury with sporty dynamism. The car is mainly made of aluminum and is characterized by perfect lines, design and finish. Due to the way the body is constructed, fewer panels and therefore welding are needed than with traditional construction methods. As a result, this luxurious premium sedan is particularly dynamic, efficient and refined.

XJR575

The new Jaguar XJR575 is the most dynamic version of the XJ range. The Jaguar Land Rovers 5.0 liter supercharged V8 in this version delivers 423 kW (575 hp) of power and 700 Nm of torque. This accelerates the sporty premium sedan from standstill to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds. The top speed of the XJR575 is 300 km/h, which can be reached in just 44 seconds. This version – also available with a 15 centimeter longer wheelbase – solidifies the XJR’s position as Jaguar’s fastest XJ sedan.

Customers have a choice of two special body colors from Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations for the XJR575: Velocity Blue and Satin Corris Grey. The Jaguar XJR575 features specially developed exterior details such as the new rear spoiler, side sills, redesigned front bumper and Gloss Black trimmed lower air intakes. Furthermore, the new badging and double louvres in the hood distinguish the XJR575 from the other versions of the XJ. Gloss black Farallon 20-inch wheels and red brake calipers provide the dynamic finishing touch to this special edition.

Like all versions of the XJ, the XJR575 is equipped with Adaptive LED headlamps, which provide a more natural light than bi-xenon lamps. The headlamps include the Adaptrive Front-lighting System, active and passive cornering lights and automatic high beam.

The XJR575 interior features Jaguar special embossed door sill panels with 575 engravings and diamond-pattern trim in a choice of Jet/Jet and Ivory/Jet color combinations and finished with additional 575 logos. Personally I think those embroidery are a shame, but good for those who want to be reminded that they drive a 575 will probably like it very much. The sports seats in the XJR575 have adjustable side bolsters for extra lateral support when cornering.

The Jaguar XJ range consists of the following versions:

  • XJ Luxury
  • XJ Premium Luxury
  • XJ Portfolio (long wheelbase only)
  • XJ R-Sport
  • XJR575
  • XJ Autobiography (long wheelbase only)

The new Jaguar XJR575 will be available from next fall. Come into the beautiful world of Jaguar.
