(MAHWAH, N.J.) – Jaguar recently debuted the final 300 units of the current generation XJ with the 2019 XJ Collection Special Edition, a model capturing the iconic design, performance and luxury that the XJ is known for. The vehicle, available exclusively for U.S. customers, combines exceptional Jaguar craftsmanship, with the XJ’s authoritative yet elegant design, and it’s advanced Lightweight Aluminum Architecture.
“The Jaguar XJ has always represented the pinnacle of Jaguar’s model line-up,” said Julian Thomson, Jaguar Design Director. “With its skillful blend of beautiful design, engaging performance and revered luxury, it has always proved a class apart, rewarding its driver just as much as it cossets and comforts the passenger. The limited edition XJ Collection is the ultimate expression of refinement and timeless luxury.”
To celebrate the debut of the XJ Collection, Jaguar partnered with famed fashion photographer Max Montgomery to capture the beauty and essence of the XJ with an exclusive photo series featuring “Why Women Kill” and “True Detective” actress, Alexandra Daddario. An up-and-coming style icon, Daddario has quickly made a name for herself as a poised, talented actress who embodies the elegance and glamour of the XJ Collection Special Edition. With an eye for luxury design, Daddario’s high-fashion persona captures the essence of the XJ model.
“What better way to honor the timeless and elegant XJ Collection Special Edition than through the lens of Max Montgomery,” said Kim McCullough, Vice President, Marketing, and Jaguar Land Rover North America? “Combing those two elements with Alexandra Daddario’s style truly captures the essence of this model.”
The XJ Collection is offered as a RWD Long Wheelbase model and is based on the XJL Supercharged, sporting a 470hp V8 engine. The XJ Collection features several unique elements including custom ‘XJ One of 300 Collection’ intaglio that confirms its exclusivity as well as gloss rich oak veneer with linear laser inlay, not found in any other XJ models. Standard features include Adaptive Cruise Control, 360 Degree Parking Aid, 360 Degree Surround Camera, all-season tires and an 8-speed automatic transmission2.
