Specifications and key features of the new items are already disclosed, but the full premiere of the car is yet to come – it is planned for the Frankfurt Motor Show 2019.

The coveted designation marked the grille and the trunk lid. In addition to this novelty, two new body colors – Satin Corris Gray and Velocity Blue – were highlighted.
The equipment and architecture of the Jaguar XJR575 interior depends to a certain extent on the size of the wheelbase (3032 and 3157 mm are available). So, the elongated version relies on two separate rear seats with heating and ventilation, adjustable lumbar support, a three-mode massage program, a memory of positions. The seats themselves can be controlled by the riders themselves or by the driver. Passengers of the second row, apart from a comfortable landing, can count on a wide range of entertainment functions. They are implemented through a pair of folding 10.2-inch screens installed on the back of the backs of the front seats. For connecting devices with media content, USB 3.0 ports, HDMI input and MHL connector are intended.
In the interior of the sporty Jaguar sedan, only high-quality finishing materials were found, and the leather is used almost everywhere, including the front panel and door cards. The armchairs have adjustable lateral support rollers, leather upholstery with an original diamond-shaped stitching and an inscription 575 at the top of the backs. Aluminum overlays with promising symbols of the XJR575 neatly covered door sills.

In the podkapotnom space super-high-speed British sedan prescribed a supercharged 5.0-liter unit V8, similar to what drives the sports coupe F-Type SVR . The engine output is 575 hp. and 700 Nm, “digest” which is designed 8-speed automatic ZF box. Traction effort through the active electronically controlled differential is transmitted to the rear axle.
Acceleration from the site to 100 km / h in the top Jaguar takes only 4.4 seconds. The figure is excellent, but competitors in the face of all-wheel drive Audi S8 plus and Mercedes-Benz S 63 4Matic will spurt far faster. To achieve the “hundred” Audi with a 605-horsepower engine spends 3.8 seconds, a Mercedes with a 612-strong unit – 3.5 seconds. However, the price tag of both German models is much more serious.
