Jaguar Land Rover has released a new infotainment system tailored for use in its classic models. Compatible with most negative earth vehicles, such as Land Rover Defenders and Jaguar XJs, the system combines modern audio and navigation features.

The head unit incorporates a customisable satellite navigation system (with support for 32 languages), a DAB digital radio, smartphone connectivity and internal microphone, as well FM and AM analogue reception.

Sized to fit a single DIN head-unit slot, JLR’s Classic Infotainment System features a 3.5-inch touchscreen integrated between two traditional rotary controls. Buyers can select a choice of black or chrome facias to suit Jaguars, and a choice of black or silver brushed aluminium faceplates for Land Rovers.

The unit will cost £1,200 and go on sale in September. A fitting service is also offered at Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works in Warwickshire, as well as select authorised Jaguar and Land Rover dealers.

Would you pay £1,200 to have the perfect radio in your classic JLR product? If you want to learn more about Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works, take a read of our "Inside Jaguar Land Rover Works" feature here.
