The Jaguar XJ range has got its 2018 model-year updates along with a new range-topping performance model: the XJR575.

Jaguar has enhanced the XJ’s connectivity with 4G Wi-Fi capability which can be paired with up to eight devices and a new larger ten-inch touchscreen.

Lane keep assist, driver drowsiness detection and forward traffic detection are all as standard, while autonomous emergency braking now features pedestrian detection.

XJR575 gives performance

The XJR575 joins the XJ range as the new flagship performance model. The 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine has had its power upgraded from 550 to 575hp. With a maximum torque of 700Nm, the XJR575 has a top speed of 186mph and a 0-60mph time of 4.2 seconds.

With a bespoke rear spoiler, side sills and front bumper, the XJR575 has 20-inch gloss-black wheels with red brake calipers. The new model is available in two exclusive colours: Velocity Blue and Satin Corris Grey.

The updated XJ range is available to order now with UK pricing starting from £59,995 and from £93,710 for the XJR575.
