Facelifted Jaguar XJ gets technology upgrades and new flagship model

Facelifted Jaguar XJ gets technology upgrades and new flagship model

That groundswell of power is enough to zap the aluminum-bodied four-door to 60 miles per hour in just 4.2 seconds and bound all the way on to a top speed of 186 miles per hour. It adds pinch and zoom gesture recognition to its native sat nav, and will allow owners to create custom "homepages" with shortcuts to frequently used features.

Jaguar have announced a new version of their XJR, the Jaguar XJR575 and it comes with more power than the previous model.

On Monday, Jaguar upped the ante with the fastest and most powerful version of the sedan to date, the XJR575.

Producing a mighty 423kW/700Nm from its supercharged 5.0-litre V8, the new XJR575 is named after the 575hp it produces - some 25hp (18kW) more than the old XJR.

The new saloon also includes intelligent safety measures, such as Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist and Driver Condition Monitoring, ensuring every drive in the XJR575 is safe as it is exhilarating.

The new models are priced from £59,995 with the XJR575 costing from £93,710. The system operates from 3-37mph (5-60km/h) and uses an advanced forward-facing stereo digital camera to spot hazards, automatically applying the brakes when the risk of a collision is detected. Marking out the 575 from the Luxury, Premium Luxury, Portfolio, R-Sport and Autobiography are unique bumpers, spoilers and sills, plus 20-inch "Farallon" black wheels and a pair of unique colour options - Satin Corris Grey you see here, with Velocity Blue also available. Lasting just 44 seconds - the time it takes for the new four-door to reach its top speed - Burgess gave quick-fire answers to the vehicle and himself.

The XJR575 will only be available in two colors, Velocity Blue and the Satin Corris Grey featured on this vehicle. Unlike the standard XJ, the XJR575 trim has been finished in black instead of chrome.

We're currently waiting on word for local pricing, spec and availability, but the XJ575 is available to order now in the United Kingdom, from £93,710 (NZ$164,030).
