01 Aug The New 2018 Jaguar XJR575 Is Jaguar’s New Performance Flagship
Jaguar is a legendary auto maker, and they’ve really been having fun with new models, like the E-pace. On the more tried and true side, however, are Jaguar XJ’ – already impressive full size sedans, but really upped with the 2018 Jaguar XJR575, aptly named for it’s impressive 575 horsepower and a 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds. It’s powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8, with 518 lb-ft of torque, channeled into an 8-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. There’s an electronic active differential, too, to keep all that power used properly.
If the numbers are anything to go by, the new XJR575 is going to be a beast of performance, but full sizes are about more than just numbers, too; this car is Jaguar’s new flagship, and they want you to know it from the way it looks. Not much has changed from previous XJ models, but in all honesty, that’s totally fine. The exterior comes in a luxurious Satin Corris Gray, as well as Velocity Blue. These are complemented by 20″, glossy black Farallon wheels, with gorgeous red brake calipers and twin hood louvers. The inside has comfy, black diamond-quilted leather, and custom 575 embossing on the dash. Jaguar has also included a brand-new, 10″ touchscreen, and 4G WiFi hotspots. There’s emergency braking, park assist, blind spot and lane keeping assistance, as well.
That’s it for details, so far. Jaguar plans to release some more info on this sumptuous car later this year, and you can expect it to be available spring 2018. It starts at £93,710 in the UK.
