As part of the year-long celebration for Jaguar's 75th anniversary, the Jaguar design team has created the XJ75 Platinum Concept. It was displayed at the Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance Concept Car Lawn this weekend.
The XJ75 Platinum Concept is the company's first demonstration of the customization potential of the new XJ luxury sedan, emphasizing the Jaguar's dramatic interior and exterior styling themes.
Dominated by a striking white and black theme, the XJ75 Platinum Concept is a 470hp 2011 Jaguar XJL Supercharged equipped with new ground-hugging front and rear spoilers with side sills. Painted a lustrous satin matte pearlescent white, exterior chrome elements have been revised to either a dark chrome or gloss black. The bespoke 22" wheels are black and use a brushed contrast finish.
The contrast continues with gloss pearl white air vents, veneers and diamond-stitched suede inserts on the seats and headliner, all set against the backdrop of a Jet Softgrain leather interior. Suede and leather accents are seen throughout the interior to further material enhancements.
The center console houses a bespoke clock developed in partnership with the Bremont Watch Company. An independent British company, Bremont creates beautifully engineered and designed mechanical watches, hand assembled in Switzerland.
Performance on the XJ75 Platinum Concept is derived from its 5.0-liter Supercharged direct-injection V8 with 470 horsepower and 424 lb-ft of torque. Entertainment is provided by a 1200-watt Bowers & Wilkins surround sound system with 20 speakers powered through 15 channels and state-of-the-art sound processing technology.
