Jaguar XJ75 Platinum Concept

Jaguar has taken the opportunity at Pebble Beach to unveil the Jaguar XJ75 Platinum Concept, a more muscular, aggressive take on the standard XJ.

As is usual for manufacturers, Jaguar are insistent that the super-saloon is merely a design one-off built to mark the firm’s 75th anniversary. As is also usual, this is far more likely to be a taster of where Jaguar intends to go with a production model, probably the Jaguar XJR.

The XJ75 Platinum Concept is powered by a version of the firm’s 5.0 supercharged V8, tuned to produce 464bhp and 424lb ft of torque. Being a flagship for Jaguar, the engine in any final product is likely to exceed the 503bhp currently on offer in Jaguar’s most potent models.

Visual differences to the standard model include 22-inch brushed effect black alloys, Satin Matte pearlescent white paintwork and front, rear and side sills which add to the overall lower, sportier look.

Some neat highlights have been added to the interior, the most striking being the removable pocket watch style clock made exclusively for the car by British watchmaker Bremont.
