For over 50 year the Jaguar XJ Saloon has been the pinnacle saloon car.The superior craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology are the perfect combination of this dynamic superstar.
Jaguar recently celebrated the extraordinary 50 year anniversary with an awesome convoy of XJ models across the decades from its current home at the Castle Bromwich Assembly Plant to the Paris Expo Porte de Versaillies, the site of the Paris Motor Show.The XJ had its world premier at the Paris Motor Show in 1968 so the convoy destination was a fitting venue for such a special Jaguar.
The 521 mile drive took in a series of important locations for our important car, including Jaguar Classic, Bicester Heritage Centre and the Goodwood and Le Mans race circuits, which have played a significant role in the life of Jaguar and the XJ Saloon.
“The Jaguar XJ story is one of design, desirability and performance and over the past 50 years it has become a true giant in the automotive world and it’s only right that we pay homage to it in this special way. When I started at Jaguar, the XJ was already an icon of car design, so to have been part of this story that has been told over half a century has been an absolute privilege.”
