Jaguar has released a new special edition 400 hp XJR called the XJR Portfolio. The Jaguar XJR Portfolio is one of the best luxury cars you can buy. It also appears to be one of the best values, at least in terms of price paid for the luxury it exudes. Plus, you can’t put a price on exclusivity. The Jaguar XJR Portfolio is a truly beautiful luxury car, with lithe, elegant lines that ooze class and sex appeal, and its luxurious cabin is swathed in rich leathers and warm woods. Underway, it’s quiet, smooth, stately, and powerful and it handles quite well. The XKR Portfolio features comparable design cues to the long-wheelbase XJ Super V8 Portfolio, including 20-inch polished wheels, side power vents and Satin American Walnut or aluminium trim.
It will be powered by the XJR’s 400-bhp supercharged 4.2-litre V8 and gears will change hands thanks to a six-speed ZF automatic transmission. 60 mph will be achieved in a cool 5.0 seconds flat. The XJR Portfolio’s interior is upholstered in Ivory, Champagne or Charcoal leather. The XJR Portfolio will be available in a choice of four colours: Liquid Silver, Midnight Black, Ebony, and Blue Prism. In-car entertainment is provided by the 12-speaker Jaguar Alpine Premium sound system including 320-watt amplifier, subwoofers and CD changer. If money isn’t an object and more powerful competitors from the likes of Mercedes-Benz and Audi aren’t to your liking, make sure to get you and your chequebook down to the nearest Jag dealer, because these things go like hotcakes. The Jaguar XKR Portfolio is for the U.K. market only though, and as such only 100 examples will be produced for a street price of $1,13,500 (£62,040).
