New Jaguar XJR575 joins updated 2018 XJ range

Jaguar has introduced a range of updates for its XJ luxury saloon, not least a 567bhp V8 for the 186mph Jaguar XJR575 range-topper

Jaguar has announced a range of updates for the XJ, including a new top of the range XJR575 model that gets a power boost over the previous XJR.

The Jag XJR575 uses the same 5.0-lite supercharged V8 as before, but power has been boosted to 567bhp from the previous model’s 542bhp figure - and torque is up 20Nm to 700Nm. The XJR575 goes from 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 186mph.

It’s available in two new colours, Velocity Blue and Satin Corris Grey, and gets sporty sills and bumper designs as well as a rear spoiler, gloss black air intake surrounds on the front and special bonnet vents. There's also a set of 20-inch black alloys and red brake callipers. On the inside you’ll find XJR575-badged tread plates and quilted seats.

The rest of the updated XJ range gets a new 10-inch touchscreen display with a new 4G Wi-Fi hotspot that supports up to eight devices at once. New safety kit on the updated model includes forward traffic detection, lane keep assist, autonomous emergency braking and a tiredness monitor.

Prices for the new model start from £59,995 for the 296bhp 3.0-litre diesel car, with deliveries starting in late 2017. The 340bhp supercharged V6 costs from £75,215, while the long-wheelbase 503bhp V8 model starts at £101,370. The range-topping Jaguar XJR575 will be priced from £93,710.
