Jaguar has taken the wraps off this new XJ design concept at Pebble Beach, hinting at the styling direction for an XJR super-saloon.
Officially the one-off Jaguar XJ75 Platinum Concept has been built as part of Jaguar’s 75th anniversary celebrations to show off the scope for customising the new luxury saloon, but many of its styling changes could easily be adopted by an XJR.
Styling changes including ground-hugging front, rear and side sills give the Platinum Concept the look of the smaller XFR saloon. Other features include dark chrome and gloss black trim, Satin Matte Pearlescent White paintwork and bespoke 22-inch black alloys in a brushed contrast finish.
The long-wheelbase XJ Platinum Concept is powered by a 464bhp, 424lb ft version of the firm’s 5.0 supercharged V8. In the XJR, power is likely to exceed the 503bhp produced in the XJ Supersports, XFR and XKR models.
