XJ ‘Sparkles’ at Kuwait Motor Show
The Jaguar XJ ‘Sparkles’ at the Kuwait International Motor Show
Kuwait, December 2010: The Jaguar XJ is sparkling in Al-Zayani’s corner at the Kuwait International Motor Show in the Mishref fairground. Sleek and sporting, the Jaguar XJ brings a daring new spirit to automotive luxury - it offers a seductive mix of striking design, breathtaking performance and engineering without compromise. These elements were better enhanced with the modernly sophisticated background set by its exclusive importer, Al-Zayani.
Building on the success of the XK and XF models globally and in the Middle East, the introduction of the XJ was a landmark for the revitalised Jaguar brand. Clearly positioned as the company’s four-door flagship, it extended the appeal of the XJ to a new generation of customers.
Derek Davies, Automobile Director at Al-Zayani said: “The invigorated XJ has already proven to be highly successful in all aspects; design, power and performance. I know that from both our old and new customers who constantly express their content in many different ways.”
Distinguished by unique exterior and interior design features, the XJ includes, an innovative new panoramic glass roof, an integral part of the XJ’s design concept, enabling the car to have a lower, more streamlined roofline, while dramatically enhancing the feeling of light and space inside.
The XJ's cabin offers four specification levels – Luxury, Premium Luxury, Portfolio and Supersport – allowing the customer to tailor the car to suit their tastes of choice in colours, veneers and leathers not seen before in a Jaguar.
The XJ benefits from the most advanced, powerful and efficient Jaguar powertrains ever. The XJ features a 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine with 385 horsepower or a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 available in 470 and 510 horsepower versions.
Proven Jaguar dynamic technologies are taken to new levels in the XJ. Features such as air suspension, Adaptive Dynamics (continuously variable damping), Active Differential Control and quick-ratio power steering deliver the blend of responsive, dynamic handling and refined, supple ride expected from a Jaguar.
Inside the car there are advanced new technologies; 12.3-inch high-definition Virtual Instruments complement an innovative, Dual-View technology 8-inch Touch-screen that can project DVD movies or television programmes to the passenger while the driver views vehicle functions or follows satellite navigation.
Premium surround sound options include the top-of-the-range 1200W Bowers & Wilkins system, as well as advanced infotainment features like hard drive-based audio and navigation systems, and comprehensive connectivity for portable audio and video devices via the powerful Media Hub.
The XJ also takes a new approach to sustainable motoring. Constructed using Jaguar’s aerospace-inspired aluminium body technology, the XJ is lighter than its rivals by at least 150kg which significantly improves performance, handling and economy, while delivering increased strength, refinement and safety.
Nader Jaber, Marketing Manager at Al-Zayani said: “It is quite thrilling to know that the Jaguar XJ has set new benchmarks at different levels. Jaguar customers in Kuwait look for luxury, individuality and performance, which is why the XJ is truly beautiful and exhilarating to drive, just like the XK and XF.”
