Tuning company Startech has revealed a package of cosmetic tweaks for the Jaguar XJ
15 December 2011

A package of styling upgrades for the Jaguar XJ has been produced by Startech, the sister tuning company to Brabus.

Startech, which specialises in overhauling the Jaguar Land Rover marques, has produced a package that includes subtle external aero tweaks, new 21-inch alloy wheels, and interior upgrades, all of which are available as individual elements.

The front end gets an attachment that fits onto the Jaguar XJ's existing production bumper and lends a sportier appearance, with extended air-dams and integrated day-time running LEDs. Startech claims the unit has a performance benefit and helps to reduce lift on the front axle.

The rear end gets a subtle lip spoiler and a diffuser with stainless steel mufflers. Side styling includes extended air gills on the front wings and extended wheel arches.

The interior gets an extra choice of colours, heated rear seats, a leather-trimmed centre console, front footwell lights and individual rear passenger lights.

A new multimedia system based around an iPad can be installed, as can a modem to enable internet connectivity on the move. Electric tables are also fitted for rear passengers to use the included Apple Bluetooth keyboards.

Each package is tailor-made to the customer's specification, and options include stainless-steel scuff plates, leather floor mats and aluminium pedals.

Adding the entire kit to a Jaguar XJ will cost in the region of £8000.
