XJ’S Fiftieth Anniversary Jaguar marks 50 years of its flagship XJ luxury saloon with the launch of a new, special-edition model: the Jaguar XJ50.
The car, which is available in both standard and long wheelbase with a 3.0-litre diesel (300PS) powertrain, was revealed at the Beijing Motor Show, and celebrates half-a-century of trademark performance, technology and luxury.
Exterior updates for the XJ50 X351 include Autobiography-style front and rear bumpers, which, together with the purposeful new 20in Venom wheels, its black front grille and unique badging to the rear and side vents, marks out the anniversary edition. Available on the striking colour palette are Fuji White, Santorini Black, Loire Blue and Rosello Red.
Inside, the luxurious cabin features soft-grain diamond-quilted seats with an embossed leaper on the headrests and an XJ50 logo on the centre armrest. Unique intaglio branding and XJ50-badged illuminated treadplates, anodised gearshift paddles and bright metal pedals also differentiate the anniversary edition.
Ian Callum, Jaguar director of design, said, “Spanning half a century, the Jaguar XJ remains true to its heritage with a wonderful balance of beautiful design, intelligent performance and indulgent luxury that ensures it stands out from the crowd. “This is a car worth celebrating, and the XJ50 pays homage to a giant within the Jaguar brand that we believe is one of the world’s most stylish sporting saloons.” The XJ50 is available to order now, priced from £74,280 in the UK.
