Jaguar XJ Ultimate at the 2012 Beijing
Jaguar has presented the top-of-range XJ Ultimate at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show, yesterday. The luxurious saloon comes with unique details both for the interior and the exterior. It represents the pinnacle of the luxurious, innovative XJ experience with heightened levels of opulence for rear-seat passengers.
2012 Jaguar XJ Ultimate comes with two individually tailored rear seats, which are trimmed in semi-aniline premium natural leather with power adjustment and recline, lumbar support, massage function and climate controls. Furthermore, the comfort is boosted by a rear business table, machined from solid aluminium with piano black trim, powers into position at the touch of a button. That's not all, the rear passengers also get a pair of bespoke champagne flutes in a dedicated storage area beneath the powered table and a champagne chiller between the rear seats cools the bottle to the perfect temperature and automatically presents it when the cabinet is opened. Each rear-seat passenger is provided with an iPad® and keyboard, housed and charged in dedicated leather-trimmed docks in the rear of the front seats.
Other highlights for the interior include a full-length, leather-trimmed centre console features phosphor blue accent lighting and stowage areas to extend the car's business usability, a 15-channel, 20-speaker surround sound system engineered specifically for the XJ by British audio specialists Meridian and exclusive interior finishes including Herringbone veneer, machined aluminium and bespoke LED lighting.
The XJ Ultimate comes with new revised suspension optimizing the ride comfort.
The exterior boasts Celestial Black paint, discreet external detailing and badging differentiating the Ultimate from other XJ variants, a set of unique 20" Maroa forged alloy wheels featuring both technical grey and highly polished finishes.
The engine range includes the all-new 3.0-liter V6 supercharged petrol engine and the 5.0 liter V8 supercharged petrol. There will be also a diesel variant - 3.0 liter V6 turbocharged diesel. All engines are mated to the new 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox.
