2011 Jaguar XF and XJ Designer Edition

After what seemed to be a flop of an auto show in 2009, the AutoRai is said to come back this year chock full of automakers ready to show off the best of their work. One luxury automaker making its presence known will be Jaguar with two special editions designed by Jaguar’s chief designer, Ian Callum. The two models are called the XF and XJ Designer Editions and will be limited to only 20 units each.

The XF Designer Edition is based on the 3.0 liter V6 version and will feature Bi-Xenon headlights, 19 inch alloy wheels in Artura Stratus Grey metallic paint or Ultimate Black, a heated leather steering wheel, standard sports seats, and a heated windshield.

The XJ Designer Edition is based on the same 3.0 liter V6 version and will be distinguished by a leather headliner, a Bowers & Wilkins 1200W audio system, a TV tuner, and a Dual View display on the Touch HD Screen.

Both models have been painted in Stratus Grey London and combined with tan leather upholstery and a Piano Black dash finish. Sales will begin in May 2011 with the XF Designer getting a price tag of € 77,790 ($110,000 at the current exchange rates), while the XJ Designer will sell for € 121,290 ($171,000 at the current exchange rates).


It simply elegant luxury car, giving more essence to its Grey metallic paint. Naturally XF and XJ Designer Edition totally a grabbing attention.

This car had a simple design but I should say that the appeal that it has is overwhelming and it is already looking great on its color.

The style and the platform seems so simple and ordinary and I noticed that the color is seems so dead and boring but I love the car lines and I think that V6 engine can’t give a good and remarkable performance.

Well, The designer edition have to looking forward for the best revision of it.
And have to show off the best of their work.

Well, I cant figure out the best type of this model. Its kinda ordinary and basically not typically the good revision of it.

Well, I think the V6 is pretty appropriate for these two. After all, they are just special editions, so I don’t see the point why they would go with a much bigger upgrade.

It will be using a v6 technology with no turbocharged engine added. No matter how incredible is the exterior, I wouldn’t consider to buy one.

I really hate special edition. Car manufacturer makes us fool by calling it "special", wherein the truth is it just a small modified version of a certain model! How ridiculous!

Yeah, you’re right. The specs on these two are quite very close to that of the standard versions of the cars. It really seems pointless that they have come up with this.

- I think this car is less powerful and I was disappointed with the engine used in this car. Well, v6 is already outdated.

Yeah! I really don’t get why they need to produced this two since XFR-S confirms its debut in the Shanghai Motor Show. I think Jaguar is just wasting their time on this production.

Come to think of it, you can have all the upgrades that they put into these car way much less than buying the special editions. Which is why I don’t get the point of this whole special edition thing.

Yeah, you’re right, they look a bit too close to the standard versions. But the selling point of these editions would probably be the interiors and entertainment packages that they have included.

So what’s special about this two? It seems that they look no different from the regular edition, except for those add ons that they have included.
