XJR DRIVING DYNAMICS
To optimise handling, an array of assistive systems harness XJR’s incredible power without ever overwhelming the driver or compromising the smoothness of the ride. The suspension is fine-tuned to maintain body control, balance and composure whether on motorway or hair-pin bend. The Active Differential Control limits the slip between the rear wheels providing outstanding traction and cornering agility. Modified suspension reduces roll while increasing body control and stability. XJR’s Adaptive Dynamics continuously monitor the suspension, varying damping 500 times a second to keep the ride flat and stable.
Intuitive technology provides easy connectivity and an astonishing audio experience.
MAKE THE CONNECTION
XJR’s technology is designed to connect car and driver making handling and control instinctive and effortless. The customizable Virtual Instrument panel appears on a crystal-clear screen; in an instant, it can alter to display the most relevant information such as road ahead warnings or fuel range. An 8 inch colour Touch-screen in the centre console provides multi-function control for audio, climate control and satellite navigation. At the very same time, its innovative Dual View display can screen movies for the passenger. So, while the driver is at one with the car and the road, the front seat passenger can be at one with their choice of movie.
XJR’s tailor-made sound system brings the cabin alive. Meridian is the ultimate audio specialist and their incredible 825 watt Surround Sound System uses no less than 20 speakers and 2 subwoofers with Audyssey MultEQ sound equalisation technology, to produce 7.1 surround sound and create audio that is just as the artist intended. Meridian achieves this by benchmarking acoustic performance against real musical instruments.
XJR’s muscular body and seductive form promises both power and luxury. With its potent engine and hand-crafted interior, XJR exceeds all its promises.
XJR’s fusion of honed dynamic lines and sculpted elegance turns heads and drops jaws. Its low, muscular, poise and deep resounding sports exhaust quad pipes dramatically announce its arrival. XJR’s enhanced body shape includes bonnet louvres to accommodate the demands of its powerful engine. Its aerodynamics are sharpened with a revised front bumper featuring a splitter, unique side sills, and a rear spoiler. XJR is complete with red brake calipers and its quintessential R badging
XJR’s cabin is undeniably sporty yet remains unashamedly luxurious. Its soft grain leather is offered in five bold colourways with surfaces finished in striking Piano Black and carbon fibre. The exclusive R logo appears on the steering wheel, instrument cluster, dashboard Intaglio and embossed in all four seats.

And yet, you can still stretch out in the back, with up to a metre of legroom in the long wheelbase version, and take in the view. The panoramic, heat-reflective, glass roof which extends the full width of the car sweeps right to the back flooding XJR with light.
