Jaguar XJR Portfolio Reviews
Some cars are just the material that dreams are made from. Cars that manage superbly, are pure luxury to take a seat in, seem like artwork and have each of the power and functionality that today's technology can provide. Cars such as the Jaguar XJR.
The Jaguar XJR is one of these vehicles that turns heads, whether it is cruising in the open-road or is parked in the curb. No wonder. The very first things that capture the interest, other than the long, low, slender bodyshape, are the jewellike double headlights. All these are especially eyecatching at night once the bulbs illuminate the street for a long way forward. Should you look carefully at the slick lines of the Jaguar XJR, you could discover a chain of little spherical "dimples" in the fender. These may resemble a little aesthetic detail, made to provide a touch to the Jaguar XJR
of distinctive allure. However, these little beauty spots are more than simply that; these are the sensors for your Jaguar XJR's amazing parking aid system which beeps to alert the driver of hidden obstructions becoming too close.
The figures say everything: 553 Nm of torque at 3500 rpm and 298 kW of power at 6100 rpm.
Another place the Jaguar XJR is really a step above others within the XJ range is within the inside. The handcrafted leather seats, the double-zone air-conditioning, the wood veneer and chrome finishes, and also the Bluetooth cellular connectivity are normal to all XJ models, however the Jaguar XJR takes it a step farther. Within the Jaguar XJR, the very first thing you'll find is the R logo on the gearstick (the Jaguar XJR has a sixspeed automatic that has discretionary sports settings. It looks almost an insult to call this apparatus a simple stick - a wand is similar to it.). You'll also detect the carefully contoured and heated seats that mould to your own body (and do other smart things in the event of the crash to stop whiplash), which means you'll have the ability to get the ideal blend of a heated torso and center with a great head. The Jaguar XJR has DVD-BASED navigation as standard using a touchsensitive screen, and also the Alpine Premium Audio system is, quite literally, music for the ears.
And obviously, the Jaguar XJR cuts no corners in regards to security. Not merely is there seats made to avoid whiplash, as said above, the Jaguar XJR boasts the body-shell design that combines front and rear impact-absorbing zones with difficult support where required, has front, side and drape airgbags that use the ARTS program to find seat use and crash severity.
However it is the active safety features and management to the Jaguar XJR which is most apparent. Particularly if this suspension system is in conjunction with the suitably - named CATS (Computer Active Technology Suspension, and also the selflevelling air suspension system makes any road easy and comfortable).
