Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is looking to bring modern functionality to their classic vehicles with a new infotainment system that has a retro look.
It can be fitted to models from both brands, is offered in five designs and four distinct versions, and comes with a choice of black or chrome faceplate finishes for Jaguars, and black or silver brushed aluminum for Land Rovers.
The classically-styled head unit is said to provide “premium sound quality” and has a 4×45-watt output. It incorporates a customizable satellite navigation system that projects maps in either 2D or 3D on the 3.5-inch high-resolution touchscreen that’s integrated between the traditional rotary controls and buttons.
Another function available is Bluetooth connectivity with phonebook transfer, which supports up to four different devices with 1,250 contacts per unit. The infotainment system has an incorporated microphone as well and provides access to the dual DAB/DAB+ digital radio, and to the FM and AM analogue reception.
Clients can select between English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Russian for the system, and among 32 languages for the navigation.
The automaker is already taking orders for the ‘Classic Infotainment System’ on their classic parts website. Pricing starts at £1,200 ($1,551/€1,334) in the United Kingdom, and for an extra buck, Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works in Warwickshire, alongside other authorized JLR retailers, can install it in your ride.
