Jaguar has revealed the 2019 XJ Collection Special Edition, the last variant of the company’s current-gen flagship sedan which will be available exclusively to US customers.
The new Jaguar XJ Collection is limited to the final 300 examples of the model, offering several unique elements that include a custom ‘XJ One of 300 Collection’ engraving and gloss rich oak veneer with linear laser inlay.
The limited Collection Special Edition is based on the RWD long-wheelbase XJ L Supercharged variant, which is powered by a, er, supercharged 470 HP 5.0-liter V8 engine, paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Standard equipment includes Adaptive Cruise Control, 360-degree Degree Parking Aid, 360 Degree Surround Camera and all-season tires.
“The Jaguar XJ has always represented the pinnacle of Jaguar’s model line-up,” said Julian Thomson, Jaguar Design Director. “With its skillful blend of beautiful design, engaging performance and revered luxury, it has always proved a class apart, rewarding its driver just as much as it cossets and comforts the passenger. The limited edition XJ Collection is the ultimate expression of refinement and timeless luxury.”
The British automaker also partnered with famed photographer Max Montgomery for an exclusive photo shoot with the new XJ Collection and actress Alexandra Daddario. “What better way to honor the timeless and elegant XJ Collection Special Edition than through the lens of Max Montgomery,” said Kim McCullough, Vice President, Marketing, Jaguar Land Rover North America. “Combing those two elements with Alexandra Daddario’s style truly captures the essence of this model.”
The new Jaguar XJ Collection Special Edition, which will debut at the LA Auto Show, is on sale now, priced from $86,025 (including destination and handling fees).
Jaguar plans to offer the next-generation XJ with an electric powertrain that will reportedly offer a driving range of up to 292 miles (470 km) thanks to its 90.2 kWh battery pack.
