  • Jaguar XJ Sport And Speed Nürburgring Taxi

    The BMW Ring Taxi recently got an update to the F10 M5, but now a new car is offering rides around the Green Hell: the Jaguar XJ. Outfitted with the Sport and Speed Pack options, the long-wheelbase Jaguar XJ Supersport packs 510-horsepower and a top speed of 174 mph. The biggest XJ might seem like an odd choice for the Nordschleife, but that's precisely why Jaguar chose it. According to Frank Klaas, the company's global communications chief, "[W]e found it's the XJ Supersport that most often surprises journalists with its speed simply because they perceive it to be a large luxury car. The XJ...

    Jaguar Shows Off Its XJ Ultimate Edition: Video

    If you’ve never driven a current Jaguar XJ sedan, trust us: it’s a perfectly satisfying luxury ride. No, it’s not up there with Bentley or Rolls-Royce, but neither is the price tag, and the big cat can more than hold its own against competitors from Japan and Germany. If the XJ...

    The Most Luxurious Jaguar Ever Is The New XJ Ultimate Edition

    Jaguar has launched a new ultra-luxurious version of its XJ flagship sedan at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show, adopting the ‘Ultimate’ tag last used on the Range Rover Autobiography Ultimate Edition from Land Rover last year. Based on the long-wheelbase XJ, the ichanges applied to the XJ...

    Jaguar XJ Gets More Executive Thanks To Startech

    It's always nice to see a logical tune. Let the stripped-down, two-seat super-coupes get 1,000-horsepower engines and gaudy carbon fiber body kits, luxury cars are about elegance, comfort, and of course, making the money needed to buy them. Instead of focusing all its attention on the engine bay or...

    All-Wheel Drive Jaguar XF And XJ Plans Resurface

    All-wheel drive was one of the key selling points of Jaguar’s X-Type sedans, killed off in the U.S. market after the 2008 model year. Sure-footed winter traction appealed to luxury car shoppers in snowbelt states, and the Jaguar X-Type gave buyers an alternative to luxury AWD sedans from BMW...

    Jaguar Launches XJ Sport And Speed Packs At Dubai Motor Show

    Ever fancied installing a bodykit on your stately Jaguar XJ sedan? Probably not, but in case you did Jaguar has unveiled a range of new body enhancements for its big luxury sedan at this week’s 2011 Dubai Motor Show. The enhancements are grouped in two new packs, a basic Sport pack and...

  • 2011 Jaguar XJ

    LCD instrument panels are nothing new. The 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid used a partial LCD display, as does the current Ford Explorer. Jaguar’s latest XJ has replaced the analog instruments with a high-resolution LCD display (shown above), and fellow Tata Motors subsidiary Land Rover is using LCD instrumentation in the latest Range Rover. If you’re a purist, chances are you find the video-game-like display an affront to decency; after all, Jaguars are traditional automobiles, and replacing the conventional dial-type gauges with an LCD screen is akin to replacing the wool floor mats...

    Jaguar Land Rover, BlackBerry Join In Smartphone Integration

    Integrating smartphones with in-car vehicle technology is nothing new. Bluetooth connection for making calls, and playing music and plugging in via USB has been around for years. Full integration of smartphones into a car's systems hasn't really been seen yet beyond the concept stage. One of the...

    Glimpse At Jaguar’s Future Lineup

    Jaguar's new XF and XJ sedans have made waves in sport-luxury seas, bringing a newer, fresher face to what was once a bit of a stodgy lineup. Now it looks like Jaguar may be planning even more boat-rocking, with several new models in the pipeline including a sports car, a BMW 3-Series rival and an...

    2010-11 Jaguar XJ Recalled Due To Faulty Windshield Wipers

    Jaguar has issued a recall on all 2010 and 2011 model year XJ sedans due to an issue with their windshield wipers. The problem poses no immediate threat to passengers and subsequently the recall is only scheduled to begin on December 13, though this may be pushed to an earlier date. According to...

    Armored Jaguar XJ Sentinel: Executive Style In Any War Zone

    If your idea of cruising through a crater-riddled war zone doesn't include banging around the back of a Humvee and you'd rather not be caught dead or alive in a modified Rolls-Royce Phantom, Jaguar has your solution: the XJ Sentinel. Unveiled at this year's 2010 Moscow International Motor Show, the...

    Jaguar’s year long celebration of its 75th anniversary continues with the unveiling today of the Jaguar XJ75 Platinum Concept, a special one-off design project on display at the 2010 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. The new concept is the company's first demonstration of the design customization...

  • Screencap of Lady Gaga & Beyonce in the video for 'Telephone'

    This, friends, is a cautionary tale, and one that makes it all too clear that the world would be a better place if everyone drove supercars. Lend an ear. Last week, Beyonce and hubby Jay-Z were tooling around London in a Mercedes-Benz S-Class. (Clearly, his love affair with the Jaguar XJ has gone south.) All of a sudden Mrs. Z decided that she wanted to stop in at Harrod's for a little high-end shopping -- which seems like the sort of thing that megastars might plan in advance so that store security isn't suddenly swamped with thousands of screaming fans, but whatever. Sasha Fierce is nothing...

    Last night, a swarm of celebs descended on Alice Tully Hall for one of the fashion world's biggest events: the Council of Fashion Designers of America's annual Fashion Awards. And of course, knowing that a star-studded event would be incomplete without some star-studded luxury wheels, Jaguar...

    Rendered: 2012 Jaguar XJ Coupe

    Mercedes-Benz has the soon-to-be renamed CL Coupe and BMW has the 6-Series, two high-end coupes or 'grand tourers' that compete in a relatively exclusive segment--even Audi has the upcoming A7 four-door coupe--so it wouldn’t be too surprising to see Jaguar launch a new two-door version of its...

    Jay-Z Brings The Bling With A 2011 Jaguar XJ

    Just for the record: we hate press embargoes. Not only are they 99% useless in this age of digital media, where nuclear secrets can be disseminated as quickly as family photos, but they're awfully pretentious. No one likes being on the receiving end of a stern, finger-wagging talking-to --...

    He’s had the Maybach Exelero in one video, the Pagani Zonda and Ferrari F430 in another, and now rap star Jay-Z is about to use the all-new 2011 Jaguar XJ in his latest clip. Considering rappers have long been known to pimp out their videos with auto exotica, it’s not surprising to see...

Right, well, despite all that, you can't argue that the man has class. Even in the face of a complicated legal battle...

  • 2011 Jaguar XJ

    The Neiman Marcus Christmas Book is a holiday tradition for many, but not all the cars that have been offered in the book over the years have proved as collectible as the buyers might have hoped. Fifty eager Jaguar buyers have placed their bets against that eventuality for this year's offering, as the 2010 Jaguar XJL Supercharged Neiman Marcus Edition sold out in just four hours. Sales started noon Eastern time last Friday, and before close of business, all 50 examples of the car were spoken for, with just four hours and four minutes required to move every last one of them. Priced at...

    It's not even out yet and already the 2010 Jaguar XJ is grabbing headlines all across the spectrum--from its controversial roofline and C-pillar to a possibly illegal dual-view navigation screen, the next XJ is pushing boundaries. Following on that theme, the 2010 XJ will also include a relatively...

    Jaguar is well underway with the launch of its 2010 XJ sedan and despite the company’s financial hardship the car is still on track for a debut in the second half of next year. For the current XJ, Jaguar looked to its past for inspiration and this definitely hurt its sales, especially when...

    Though you've been able to build your own 2010 Jaguar XJ with an online configurator for weeks - even if you do have to worry about a potentially illegal option - pricing for the car has remained secret until now.

    Dual-view displays have been billed as the hottest new technology to hit the automobile since GPS, and though the hype might be overdone, there's a lot of merit to the idea. Americans might not get to find out, however, due to a law prohibiting front-seat entertainment systems. Based in the...
