Jaguar recently launched the XJ Ultimate luxury sports sedan in India at a price of Rs. 1.78 crore for the diesel variant and Rs. 1.89 crore for the petrol version. This is a limited edition XJ that is completely kitted out with the best in luxury, and is a flagship for the company. This vehicle was soft launched at a fashion event.
The Jaguar XJ Ultimate is powered by a choice of petrol or diesel engines. The diesel variant gets a 3-litre, six-cylinder (V6) diesel engine that produces about 272 bhp of power with a six-speed automatic gearbox. The petrol version comes with a 5-litre V8 eight-cylinder petrol engine that puts out 382 bhp of power in its normal version, and 505 bhp of power in its supercharged form. The car can do 0-100 kmph in 6.5 seconds for the diesel, and 4.9 seconds for the turbo-petrol and can hit an electronically limited top speed of 250 kmph.

The XJ Ultimate has the very recognizable Jaguar XJ-Ls lines with twin projector headlamps, large mesh grille, a string of LED daytime lamps, swooping roofline, and vertical J shaped tail-lamps. The distinguishing factors are the Ultimate badging, chromed exhaust tips and the large 20-inch alloy wheels. It comes in only two colour choices – white and black.
What sets the Jaguar apart are the comfort features on the interiors. The interior is all-leather and has just four seats with multiple infotainment options. The rear seat passengers get individual touch-screen multi-function car pads for the entertainment system, and separate LCD screens as well. The console between the seats has a refrigerator and glass holder, and a little table to keep your laptop on as well. Audio is through a 20-speaker sound system. The seats themselves have multiple individual functions including being climate controlled and have a massage function. Also read: Jaguar XKR special edition launched
