The Sport adds a number of aero bits, like a splitter at the back and a lip spoiler for the bootlid. It also comes with custom touches such as a black mesh for the front and lower grilles, red brake calipers, 20-inche five-spoke wheels with a split design and new twin exhaust tips.

“The XJ is much more than a limousine. Its power and potential mean it can out-perform many so-called sports cars. The new Sport and Speed Packs allow customers to enhance that sporting dynamism even further and create an XJ that looks as good as it drives,” says Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar Cars.

Inside you have piano black trim and some carbon fiber accents, plus a set of Jaguar's Performance seats finished in softgrain leather.

The Speed pack has nothing to do with cosmetics, as it allows your supercharged Jag to go past its electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h) and on to a top speed of 174 mph (280 Km/h).

“A car capable of 174mph must have certain basic attributes – stability, aerodynamics, prodigious power and as little weight as possible. The XJ is blessed with all these qualities in abundance and with the addition of the Speed Pack it becomes an ever more impressive performance saloon,” says Mike Cross, Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity.
