Following the XKR75 and XKR175, Jaguar has also introduced the XJ75 based on the latest version of the luxury saloon. These models are special editions celebrating Jaguar’s 75th anniversary, and feature modified styling, enhanced performance and greater equipments over normal models. Needless to say they’re more expensive as well.
The XJ75 is currently on display at Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance Concept Car Lawn.
Jaguar XJ75 is the first special editoin of the new XJ series which looks very exquisite. It features a striking white and black contrast theme that suggests precious platinum metal, hence the name. The body is painted in Satin Matte Pearlescent White and garnished with either dark chrome or gloss black accents. There’s also a not so subtle body lit with a new ground-hugging front, rear and side sills.
The car also gets bespoke 22-inch wheels are black with a brushed contrast finish.
Inside the car the same contrasting theme applies and you get gloss pearlescent white air vents, veneers and diamond stitch suede inserts to the seats and headliner, all set against the backdrop of a full Jet Softgrain leather interior. Suede and leather accents are seen throughout the interior to further material enhancements.
There’s also an awesome Bremont clock in the centre console specially made for this model.
The XJ75 is powered by a supercharged V8 capable of 470 hp. Even though they call it a concept now but it very well may be produced in limited numbers.
“The new Jaguar XJ Platinum Concept celebrates Jaguar’s 75th Anniversary, and highlights the uniqueness of the XJ, and more broadly, the increasingly personal nature of luxury cars in today’s market,” said Mike O’Driscoll, Managing Director of Jaguar Cars. “The XJ is thoroughly modern, and captures the innovative and daring character that our founder Sir William Lyons built into every Jaguar. And the design team clearly had some fun making their first one-of-a-kind XJ design concept in that spirit.”
“From a pure design perspective, the XJ75 Platinum Concept is foremost about emphasising the striking proportion and presence of the new XJ, with a distilled black and white theme, which conjures up the sense of precious platinum,” said Jaguar XJ Chief Designer Giles Taylor. “At the same time, the pure sporting character of XJ is brought to the fore by keeping the car’s clean graphic approach and further lowering its stance.
“On the inside, we played up the XJ’s combination of high-end materials and British flair to really have some fun. The XJ75 Platinum Concept is a design exercise that shows our vision of customization as an inspiration for those enthusiasts who have a taste for strong individuality and visual confidence in their luxury automobiles.”
