The new Jaguar XJ Ultimate is the most luxurious – and expensive – version of Jaguar’s big saloon ever launched. Revealed at today’s Beijing motor show, the XJ Ultimate takes inspiration from stablemate Land Rover’s Range Rover Ultimate Edition, which was a sell-out success in 2011 in spite of its £125,000 price tag.
Jaguar has yet to officially price the XJ Ultimate, but sources indicate it will cost around £128,000 when it reaches the UK in November.
Much of the changes to the Ultimate over the standard long-wheelbase car create a more opulent experience for rear passengers. Between the pair of fully adjustable rear seats sits a folding solid aluminium business table, a champagne chiller and storage for champagne flutes.
Each rear passenger also gets there own iPad and keyboard, plus a TV screen with individual wireless headphones.
There are suspensions tweaks to ensure a smoother ride quality for rear passengers, plus as series of styling tweaks to distinguish the Ultimate from its more humble siblings.
