2018 model year Jaguar XJ revealed

2018 model year Jaguar XJ revealed

Two new colours have been created at Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations division in Coventry: Velocity Blue and Satin Corris Grey.

In addition to this, the central console now packs a larger 10-inch touchscreen and includes multi-touch functionality, like most modern smartphones, allowing drivers to pinch and zoom for the first time.

Safety has also been boosted, with a Forward Traffic Detection system that assists drivers merging onto busy roads from blind junctions, while Lane Keep Assist can correct your driving line if you should stray out of your lane on the road. The XJR575 rides on 5 Split-Spoke "Style 5044" gloss-black wheels that cover red brake calipers.

The Jaguar XJ has always been designed as the ultimate luxury driver's vehicle, and with the new 2018 model year range and the XJR575 we've made it even more desirable.

Under the bonnet, the XJR575 has an evolution of Jaguar's 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine, which produces 567bhp.

Jaguar hopes this will keep its biggest auto fresh in the face of new competition from the latestBMW 7 Series and upcoming Mercedes S-Class.

Along with the new XJR575, Jaguar has also given the entire XJ range some mild updates.

There is also a new performance flagship, the XJR575, which joins the range with a 575PS V8 engine.

The Jaguar XJR575 starts at £93,710 in the United Kingdom, and USA pricing will be announced at a later date.

The XJR575 will only be available in two colors, Velocity Blue and the Satin Corris Grey featured on this auto.

The XJR575 is expected to carry a price premium over the current Jaguar XJR, which costs £91,775.

Canadian fisherman killed by whale he saved
A lobster fisherman who devoted his life to saving whales has been killed by one as he rescued it from tangled ropes. He was apparently onboard a government response boat helping the Department of Fisheries with an entrapment.

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.
