The 2018 Jaguar XJR575

A Fast First Look

Jaguar has introduced one stand out vehicles after another, over the last five years, and the current launch continues that trend. With the latest full size sedan, the 2018 XJR575 Jaguar declared their newest offering during a high-speed interview featuring Jaguar designer Wayne Burgess being questioned by race driver Amanda Stretton.

 

 
 

 

A Performance Sedan Like No Other

The interview occurred on the track while Stretton accelerated this performance sedan to it top speed of 186mph. This will be a very short interview lasting just 44 seconds, the time it takes the XJ sedan to reach its top speed.

“I have done plenty of short interviews in my time, but nothing quite like this,” said Burgess. “It might have been a bit of fun, but doesn’t it just demonstrate perfectly the extreme performance of the new XJR575? I could barely finish answering those quick-fire questions before we hit 186mph and then it was all over! Can we go again?”

The XJR575 is the new performance flagship for the XJ range; its 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine benefits from a 25 horsepower increase to 575HP that delivers a 0-60mph time of just 4.2 seconds.

 

 
 

 

Customers will be able to choose between two bespoke exterior color finishes created by Special Vehicle Operations – Velocity Blue and Satin Corris Grey – while additional tailor-made exterior details include a rear spoiler, side sills, front bumper and lower air intakes featuring gloss black surrounds.

Updated exterior badging and twin hood louvers distinguish the vehicle from the rest of the range, as do the red brake callipers that accompany the 20-inch 5 Split-Spoke ‘Style 5044’ gloss-black wheels. Bespoke embossed tread plates alongside intaglio and diamond-quilted seating add a final flourish to the interior of the XJR575.

“This is a performance vehicle, but that doesn’t mean we have had to cut any corners when it comes to comfort or design,” said Jaguar Design Director, Ian Callum. “Jaguar is the standard bearer for interior refinement and the XJR575 is no different. It can go very quickly, but it does so with the serene comfort customers expect from a Jaguar sedan. That makes this a very special car indeed.” Jaguar.
