Jaguar adds XJ Collection Special Edition model to 2019 lineup
The end of XJ design is drawing nigh. Jaguar is celebrating with the addition of the new XJ Collection Special Edition model. Only 300 models of the 2019 Jaguar XJ Collection Special Edition will be produced.
To get to the special variant, Jaguar's design team started with the Jaguar XJL Supercharged model, which gets its power from a 470-horsepower supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. They added the 20-inch five split-spoke style wheels with a satin gray finish from the short wheelbase version of the XJ Supercharged. A "Collection" badge has been added to the deck lid.

Buyers can get the XJ Collection Special Edition model with either a Yulong White, British Racing Green, or Santorini Black paint job.
Inside, the car features gloss rich oak veneer door panels with linear laser inlay, a wood and leather steering wheel, unique treadplates, and a "XJ Collection One of 300" intaglio on the leather-wrapped dashboard. Interior options include Ebony/Ebony, Mineral/Ivory, and Ebony/London Tan leather.

Standard in the new model are adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree camera, all-season tires, InControl Touch Pro infotainment system with Meridian audio, connecter services, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a 10-inch infotainment touch screen, and tailored smartphone apps.
The original XJ was revealed in 1968 and you can get one now for around $5,000 according to Hagerty. The new model starts at $85,000.
