For a luxury saloon that offers supercar performance, look no further than the new Jaguar XJR. Contemporary exterior sports styling is backed up by a 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine, capable of supreme acceleration and offering a dynamic driving experience like no other. The interior of the model meanwhile is all about handcrafted excellence, with premium materials and innovative technology in evidence throughout.
Available with the XJ's standard wheelbase, the XJR cuts a fine silhouette with an on-road presence bolstered by the use of an R Body Kit. The radiator grille and side window finishers come in striking gloss black. The exterior also features a body-coloured rear valance, rear spoiler, R-style side sills, bonnet louvres and front splitter, all of which combine to create its unique and assertive look.
Red brake callipers stand as a reminder of Jaguar's sporting heritage, while LED tail lights and the XJR sports exhaust with quad pipe finishers complete the look at the rear of the vehicle.
Premium materials are used throughout, with soft grain perforated leather sports seats offering supreme comfort for driver and passengers. All of the car's critical controls are within easy reach thanks to the multifunction steering wheel and a 12.3-inch full colour TFT screen. Piano Black veneer, suede headlining and mood lighting all help to lend the interior of the cabin a sense of refinement and class.
As a reminder of the model's sporting lineage, signature R logos are embossed on the front and rear seats. Darkened glass comes fitted as standard to ensure maximum privacy for rear seat passengers, while four-zone automatic climate control helps to keep the cabin temperature comfortable.
Innovative technology lies at the heart of the XJR, helping to control the awesome power beneath the bonnet. Safety is a key focus and advanced features including Emergency Brake Assist, whiplash protection and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System are present to provide reassurance and protection when it's needed most.
The interior of the car comes fitted with the latest in entertainment features. These range from a Meridian™ 825W digital surround sound system with no less than 20 speakers, through to Jaguar's InControl Touch Pro on-board WiFi system. DAB radio, Bluetooth® connectivity and digital television screens all come as standard.
Powering the XJR is Jaguar's high-performance 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine. It's capable of delivering 550PS and carrying the model from 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds, before pushing through to a top speed of 174mph.
Maximum torque of 680Nm is available, with power transferred smoothly by way of an eight-speed automatic transmission. A dynamic ride is guaranteed thanks to the presence of XJR suspension and active differential, designed to create sharp and responsive handling for a thrilling journey, plus excellent stability at high speed.
