Jaguar's New XJR575 Can Hit 186 MPH In Just 44 Seconds

Jaguar's New XJR575 Can Hit 186 MPH In Just 44 Seconds

Still backed by an 8-speed automatic transmission, Jag says that extra muscle trims the XJR's 0-60 miles per hour time by 0.2 of a second - to a quick 4.2 ticks - and boosts top speed from 174 to 186 miles per hour. However it now features a 10-inch infotainment system on the center console.

This XJR575 performance model comes complete with Jaguar's well-known 5.0-litre V8 and now produces 567bhp - an increase over the outgoing XJR's 542bhp, and significantly more than the naturally aspirated 502bhp V8 option.

As Jaguar's largest saloon, the XJ is easily recognisable - and now the vehicle has been updated for the 2018 model year, with the range-topping XJR getting even more bite than ever before. It comes with forward traffic detection which is created to assist drivers when forward visibility is restricted, for example when pulling out of blind junctions.

The new Jaguar XJR575 model is available to order now from Jaguar UK retailers, priced from £93,710 OTR. The top speed is 300km/h, which is an increase of 20km/h over the auto it replaces.

The XJR575 will only be available in two colors, Velocity Blue and the Satin Corris Grey featured on this vehicle. Though only available in the short wheelbase variant, you do get a new front bumper and lower air intake, new side sills, a new rear spoiler, 20in gloss black wheels, red calipers, XJR575 badging and diamond-quilted seat finishing inside.

Ian Callum, Jaguar director of design, said:"The Jaguar XJ is the largest model in our saloon vehicle line-up and retains the physical presence and graceful design customers expect from a Jaguar flagship".

An active lane keep assist and fatigue detection also becomes standard along with Jaguar Land Rover's latest autonomous emergency braking that includes pedestrian detection. It can go very quickly, but it does so with the serene comfort customers expect from a Jaguar sedan.

No word yet on XJR575 pricing, but today's 2017 Jaguar XJR starts at $118,000, so figure a slight chunk of change above that to secure one of these rear-wheel-drive heroes in your driveway.
