Since plutocrats and businessmen aren't feeling the same effects of the global economy as other parts of the world, Jaguar chose the Beijing auto show to introduce a new Jaguar XJ flagship model that focuses on innovation and luxury. Based on the long-wheelbase version, the interior provide a fully-appointed luxury business class experience, similar to a private jet.

For example, it has a full-length, leather-trimmed center console separating two rear seats with power adjustment, ventilation, massage and lumbar functions.

A table, machined from solid aluminum with piano-black and chrome detailing, rises from the console to provide a working area, complete with two iPad 3 and wireless keyboards housed in leather-trimmed docks behind the front seats. Between the rear seats is a champagne chiller that will cool the bottle to what experts agree is the perfect temperature. Two specially commissioned champagne flutes reside in another cabinet beneath the table.

Twin headrest screens and wireless headphones completes the experience in the rear, complete with a new 20-speaker surround sound system developed by Meridian.

To further cosset the rear passengers, the XJ Ultimate features revisions to the rear suspension to enhance ride comfort.

The exterior detailing offers discreet clues to the model's status, with sculpted lower air intakes chromed to match the grille, polished stainless steel oval exhaust pipe finishers, dual-surfaced wheels and subtle 'Ultimate' badging.

Depending on the market, the XJ Ultimate comes with Jaguar's existing 5.0-liter V8 supercharged engine as well its 3.0-litre V6 turboc diesel, and even a new 3.0-liter V6 supercharged petrol unit, all using an eight-speed transmission.
