Being presented as the ‘pinnacle of the luxurious, innovative XJ experience,’ the XJ Ultimate comes with high-levels of opulence (it has it) for rear seat passengers.

So what kind of interior opulence are we talking?

  • Two individually tailored rear seats trimmed in semi-aniline premium leather with power adjustment and recline, lumbar support, massage function and climate controls.
  • A rear business table, machined from solid aluminum with piano black trim, powers into position at the touch of a button
  • Pair of bespoke champagne flutes in a dedicated storage area beneath the power table
  • A champagne chiller between the rear seats
  • A full-length, leather-trimmed center console features phosphor blue accent lighting and stowage areas.
  • Each rear-seat passenger is provided with an iPad and keyboard, housed and charged in dedicated leather-trimmed docks in the rear of the front seats
  • A 15-channel, 20-speaker surround sound system engineered specifically for the XJ by Meridian
  • Rear-seat entertainment package with twin headrest-mounted screens and wireless headphones

On the outside, the Jaguar XJ Ultimate gets Black Amethyst as its exclusive color in the United States. The special-edition model will also get 20-inch Maroa forged alloy wheels. Jaguar says that the XJ Ultimate also gets some suspension upgrades. Power comes from a 510-hp 5.0 liter supercharged V8 mated to a 8-speed automatic.
