The luxurious Jaguar - XJ Ultimate arrives in India
March 1, 2013: Offering a new level of luxury, Jaguar has now bought the XJ Ultimate to India. Based exclusively on the long-wheelbase XJ, the interior changes applied to the Ultimate focus on the rear accommodation, extending the car’s limousine remit to provide a fully-appointed luxury business class experience for discerning customers.
A full-length, leather-trimmed centre console separates the two individually tailored rear seats which feature power adjustment, ventilation, massage and lumbar functions. A table, machined from solid aluminium with piano-black and chrome detailing, rises up from the centre console at the touch of a button to provide a working area, its role supplemented by the provision of two third-generation iPads with wireless keyboards that are housed in bespoke leather-trimmed docks in the rear of the front seats.
A bespoke champagne chiller is mounted between the two rear seats. This cools the bottle to what experts agree is the perfect temperature before ‘presenting’ it forward when the chiller is opened. Two specially commissioned champagne flutes reside in a purpose made cabinet beneath the centre table.
A full rear seat package with twin headrest screens and wireless headphones completes the experience in combination with a new 20-speaker surround sound in-car entertainment system developed by British audio experts Meridian.
The XJ Ultimate is available with Jaguar’s existing 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol engine and its powerful and efficient 3.0-litre V6 turbocharged diesel, all driving the rear wheels via an eight-speed transmission.
