Jaguar XJ75 Platinum Concept: official details, photos and specs

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 14, 2010

As you may know already, Jaguar is celebrating its 75th anniversary at this year's Pebble Beach Automotive Weekend. Many of you folks already seen the 2011 Jaguar XKR175 Coupe, but it appears that isn't the only surprise from the British manufacturer because a new car was unveiled today: the XJ75 Platinum Concept, a one-of-a-kind design project. 

As you can see from the photos, the new car's design is dominated by the striking white and black contrast theme that suggests precious platinum metal, completed by the new ground-hugging front, rear and side sills.

The design is completed by the 22-inch wheels but also by the Satin Matte Pearlescent White paint finish but also by the exterior chrome elements which have been revised to either a dark chrome or gloss black.

Furthermore, the car features an impressive interior with gloss pearlescent white air vents, veneers and diamond stitch suede inserts to the seats and headliner, all set against the backdrop of a full Jet Softgrain leather.

The bespoke clock is also one of a kind, because it was designed by Bremont Watch Company, known for creating beautifully engineered and designed mechanical watches hand assembled in Switzerland.

The entertainment is provided by the 1,200-watt Bowers & Wilkins surround sound system with 20 speakers powered through 15 channels and state-of-the-art sound processing technology. Under the hood we find a 5.0-liter Supercharged direct-injection V8 delivering 470 horsepower and 424 lb.-ft of torque.

JAGUAR XJ75 PLATINUM CONCEPT COMMEMORATES BRAND'S 75th ANNIVERSARY

As part of the year long celebration of Jaguar's 75th anniversary the Jaguar design team has created the XJ75 Platinum Concept, a one-of-a-kind design project on display at the Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance Concept Car Lawn this weekend .

The XJ75 Platinum Concept is the company's first demonstration of the design customisation potential of the striking new XJ luxury salon, emphasising the Jaguar's dramatic interior and exterior styling themes.

Dominated by a striking white and black contrast theme that suggests precious platinum metal, the XJ75 Platinum Concept is a high-performance 470-hp 2011 Jaguar XJL Supercharged equipped with new ground-hugging front, rear and side sills. Painted a lustrous Satin Matte Pearlescent White, exterior chrome elements have been revised to either a dark chrome or gloss black. Bespoke 22-inch wheels are black and use a brushed contrast finish.

The contrast theme continues with gloss pearlescent white air vents, veneers and diamond stitch suede inserts to the seats and headliner, all set against the backdrop of a full Jet Softgrain leather interior. Suede and leather accents are seen throughout the interior to further material enhancements.

The XJ75 Platinum Concept centre console houses a bespoke clock developed and designed in partnership with the Bremont Watch Company. An independent British company, Bremont creates beautifully engineered and designed mechanical watches hand assembled in Switzerland.

"From a pure design perspective, the XJ75 Platinum Concept is foremost about emphasising the striking proportion and presence of the new XJ, with a distilled black and white theme, which conjures up the sense of precious platinum," said Jaguar XJ Chief Designer Giles Taylor. "At the same time, the pure sporting character of XJ is brought to the fore by keeping the car's clean graphic approach and further lowering its stance.

"On the inside, we played up the XJ's combination of high-end materials and British flair to really have some fun. The XJ75 Platinum Concept is a design exercise that shows our vision of customization as an inspiration for those enthusiasts who have a taste for strong individuality and visual confidence in their luxury automobiles."

Performance on the XJ75 Platinum Concept is derived from its 5.0-litre Supercharged direct-injection V8 with 470 horsepower and 424 lb.-ft of torque. Entertainment is provided by a 1,200-watt Bowers & Wilkins surround sound system with 20 speakers powered through 15 channels and state-of-the-art sound processing technology.
