Jaguar Presents New Flagship XJ Ultimate Edition Series at the Beijing Show [Video]

Described by Jaguar as the "pinnacle" of its XJ series, the new Ultimate Edition that was revealed at this week's Auto China 2012 in Beijing takes its place as the top offering in the saloon model's line-up.

The flagship XJ model is based exclusively on the long-wheelbase version and will be the first to be offered with Jaguar's new 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine producing 335hp (340PS).

The car can also be specified with Jaguar’s existing 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol engine, and its 3.0-litre V6 turbocharged diesel, with all engines linked to eight-speed automatic transmissions.

Most of the changes to the Ultimate Edition concern the rear passenger compartment that gets a full-length, leather-trimmed center console separating the two individually tailored seats, which feature power adjustment, ventilation, massage and lumbar functions.

A solid aluminum table with piano-black and chrome detailing rises up from the console at the touch of a button providing a working space, while the rear passengers also get two third-generation iPads with wireless keyboards housed in bespoke leather-trimmed docks in the rear of the front seats.

If pleasure is the name of the game, there's a bespoke champagne chiller mounted between the two rear seats, while an entertainment package with twin headrest screens and wireless headphones completes the experience in combination with a new 20-speaker surround sound system developed by British audio experts Meridian.

On the outside, the changes are more discreet and are limited to the new chromed lower air intakes on the front bumper, the polished stainless steel oval exhaust pipe finishers, unique alloy wheels and subtle ‘Ultimate’ badging.

Jaguar says it has also retuned the suspension to improve comfort for the rear passengers.
