Video: Jaguar XJ75 Concept Walk Around

By Auto News Log • August 16th, 2010

To celebrate their 75th anniversary, Jaguar unveiled the XJ75 Platinum Concept at the Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance.

Based on the XJL Supercharged, the XJ75 features Satin Matte Pearlescent White paint, black accents, an aerodynamic body kit, a trunk-mounted spoiler, and 22-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, the cabin boasts leather seats with diamond suede inserts, pearlescent white trim, a bespoke Bremont clock, and a 1,200-watt Bowers & Wilkins sound system.

According to the XJ’s Chief Designer, Giles Taylor, “From a pure design perspective, the XJ75 Platinum Concept is foremost about emphasizing the striking proportion and presence of the new XJ, with a distilled black and white theme, which conjures up the sense of precious platinum.”

While Jaguar says the concept was built to showcase the XJ’s “customization potential”, speculation suggests the car is a thinly veiled XJR. It is expected to feature a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 with 510 hp (380 kW / 517 PS) instead of the 470 hp (351 kW / 477 PS) version used in the concept.
