Jaguar unveiled what is to sit at the top of their range a few days ago in Beijing, at the Beijing Auto Show, what is namely the 'XJ Ultimate'. Its name is justified, as it boasts a 'business table' housed between two fully tailored, individual seats, a champagne chiller, an iPad and keyboard for each passenger and exclusively designed by Meridan entertainment (15-channel 20-speaker surround sound system). Customers will be able to choose between the 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol engine, 3.0-litre V6 turbocharged diesel engine, or the all-new 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine. It would have been great if it was featured in the upcoming James Bond film, as the XJ Ultimate suits the Bond life to a tee.
Jaguar teased us with a preview of the upcoming 'F-Type', which will be a new addition to their currently 3-car range, although it doesn't excite us as much as the XJ Ultimate does because it doesn't seem to be half as imposing or attractively dominating. However we are keeping an open mind and anticipate to be proved wrong.
