Jaguar has released their 2013 XJ Ultimate at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show in China. Based exclusively on the long-wheelbase XJ, the interior changes applied to the Ultimate focus on the rear accommodation. The XJ Ultimate offers also several exterior upgrades, new rims and is equipped with the supercharged V8 engine.
A full-length, leather-trimmed center console separates the two individually tailored rear seats which feature power adjustment, ventilation, massage and lumbar functions. A table, machined from solid aluminum with piano-black and chrome detailing, rises up from the center console at the touch of a button to provide a working area.
Next to that you have two third-generation iPads with wireless keyboards that are housed in leather-trimmed docks in the rear of the front seats. Exclusive interior finishes including Herringbone veneer, machined aluminum and bespoke LED lighting.
A champagne chiller is mounted between the two rear seats. Two specially commissioned champagne flutes reside in a purpose made cabinet beneath the center table. A full rear seat entertainment package with twin headrest screens and wireless headphones completes the experience in combination with a new 20 speaker surround sound in-car entertainment system developed by British audio experts Meridian.
The XJ Ultimate features revisions to the suspension to enhance the rear ride comfort. The exterior detailing of the XJ Ultimate has sculpted lower air intakes chromed to match the grille, polished stainless steel oval exhaust pipe finishers, dual-surfaced alloy wheels and subtle ‘Ultimate’ badging. The exclusive color for this vehicle in the United States will be Black Amethyst. The 20 inch “Maroa” style forged alloy wheels are unique to this model and feature a dual-tone color scheme.
The XJ Ultimate is equipped with Jaguar’s 5.0 liter V8 supercharged 510hp engine fitted with a new automatic eight-speed transmission.
Only 30 Jaguar XJ Ultimate models will be available in the United States. The exact amount in other countries is unknown at this stage. It is priced at $ 155,000 and will be available in late 2012.
