The new Jaguar XJR575 model is available to order now from Jaguar UK retailers, priced from only £93,710 OTR.

The latest XJ offerings feature the latest intelligent safety technologies.

A bigger, 25cm touchscreen on the centre stack lets you pinch and zoom when you're using satellite navigation and make you own homepages for your favourite features. It comes with forward traffic detection which is created to assist drivers when forward visibility is restricted, for example when pulling out of blind junctions. There's also a Driver Condition Monitor that will issue an alert if your steering inputs suggest drowsiness.

Some of the big changes in the vehicle landing early next year include a new variant - the XJR575.

The new XJR575 is the most powerful Jaguar XJ ever, and it's distinguished by a choice of exclusive Satin Corris Grey and Velocity Blue paint colours. The hood also gets new twin hood louvres and red brake calipers peek out behind the unique 20-inch gloss black wheels. Inside, the sill finishers bear the XJR575 logo, as do the diamond-quilted seats.

Its 5.0 litre V8 supercharged engine produces 700nm of torque, while the Electronic Active Differential offers control of power delivery and maximises traction. However, that auto is electronically limited to 155mph, while the Jaguar has a 186mph top speed.

As Jaguar's largest saloon, the XJ is easily recognisable - and now the auto has been updated for the 2018 model year, with the range-topping XJR getting even more bite than ever before. Prices have yet to be announced, but we expect only incremental increases from today's range, which starts at £58,690 for a 3.0-litre diesel model in Luxury trim.

Jaguar debuted its new XJR575 by doing an interview with Wayne Burgess, the British automaker's Production Studio Director and SVO Projects, at the car's top speed.
