Lane Keep Assist and Driver Condition Monitoring are standard throughout the range. It’s available to order now from just £59,995 signiﬁcantly undercutting its German rivals however that’s not the end of the story.
As well as the 300 hp 3.0-litre V6 diesel, the 340 hp 3.0-litre V6 petrol and thirsty 510 hp 5.0-litre V8 petrol, Jaguar will also be oﬀering a top of the range XJR575 with, you guessed it, 575 hp.
