Jaguar officially introduced an “inflated” version of the next-generation XJ sedan. The car is positioned as a direct rival of the Mercedes-AMG S63. His appearance was announced at the Goodwood Speed Festival in late June, but then the audience saw a prototype covered with camouflage.
The Jaguar XJR575, as the full name of the model, is equipped with a 5.0-liter V8 with a compressor. The power of the unit is 575 hp. and 700 Nm of torque. It’s 25 hp. more than the engine of the previous generation of the Jaguar XJ.
The sedan accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds. So it is 0.2 seconds faster than its predecessor, but it lags with so much of the Mercedes-AMG S63. The maximum speed of the machine is 300 km/h.
The Jaguar XJR575 is part of the renewed XJ model. As part of the facelift, the Jaguar flagship has received full LED headlights, a modernized Touch Pro with a 10-inch touchscreen display and a 4G Wi-Fi access point.
Sales of the revamped Jaguar XJ will start in November 2017. Model prices start at 59,900 British pounds ($ 78,100), but the XJR575 will cost a minimum of 93,700 pounds (122,200 dollars).
