What we have here is perhaps the nicest custom Jaguar XJ Supercharged in the country!
We started out with a perfect, low milage example of the XJ Supercharged short wheel base car finished in stunning
polaris white with a rare navy blue interior. This is the only car with this color combination I have ever seen as
Iím guessing 90% of the white cars only were optioned with the black interior and the other, say 18% of the white
cars were built with the all too common, non contrasting tan interior. The navy blue with the ivory piping is
absolutely gorgeous in a white Jag and must be seen to be appreciated.. The heated steering wheel boasts a custom
matching navy perforated leather wrap that matches the interior impeccably. The trim on the car is the black
walnut giving the car a modern, sleek interior decor and not the all too common- burl most other Jags have. The
windows are professionally tinted with polarized non metallic tint job that cost $800. The car has all options
including cold weather and Illumination pack. This was a $4500 option that illuminated the vents, trunk plate and
kick panels with blue led mood lighting. The car is also optioned with the $2700 1100w Bowers & Wilkins upgraded
Moving on to the exterior.
The Platinum Edition car relates to the 75th anniversary show car that was featured at the Geneva car show by
Jaguar last year. That particular car was firstly completely de-chromed. Following in that tradition, all the
chrome on the car was completely removed and finished in black. This includes the chrome grille, grill trim and
window trim. The panorama window trim was also finished in black to provide the car with a cohesive layout and not
the broken color scheme provided by the factory. the rear valance was also finished in matte black as well as the
tailpipe to make the car look up to date. There in no chrome left whatsoever on the exterior of the car. An Arden
trunk spoiler painted in factory white is also installed. Add to the look a professional window tint and you can
plainly see that this Jaguar is set so far apart than even the XJR which contains the same motor as this car. No
XJR even looks as good as this car I assure you.
Added are a set of color matched polaris white and black custom 3 piece Forgiato rims fitted with 90% tread tires.
The wheel and tire package were bought at California wheel for $7500 and the car will come with the receipt to
prove it! The rims are 4 years old and do show a few signs of use but have been touched up.
Don't make the mistake of comparing this car to any other XJ in the world!
The calipers are finished in a brilliant Porsche red, designed to keep dust off your wheels. Other extras include
Jaguar factory metal sport pedals, and LED logo illumination kit that shines the Jaguar emblem on the ground at
night when you or the passenger opens the door.
The condition of the car is 10/10. There are no surprises to be found. Not a scratch anywhere. Car just came off
it's last service and I had the dealer change/replace anything with a lick of wear and the car stayed in the shop
an extra day after promise date to make sure every part that could possibly fail in the near future was back to
new. The N/C bill was $3800. You can rest assured that the car is as close to new as any 2012 could possibly be!
Take a close look at the hi-res pictures that are included and tell me if this is indeed the best looking XJ in the
country. I challenge you to find a better example anywhere!
This car will attract crowds anywhere you go with people wondering what they are looking at.

Farewell, Zach Bowman; Pikes Peak 2013; Datsun; 2014 Ram lineup
Episode #339 of the Autoblog Podcast is here, and it's the last rodeo for Zach Bowman before he departs for other pastures. The crew this week consists of Dan Roth, Zach Bowman and Jeff Ross, who talk about the astounding records set at this year's Pike's Peak hill climb, the return of the Datsun brand name and the recently-announced 2014 Ram truck lineup. Of course, we start with the garage and end with your questions and comments. For those of you who hung with us live on our UStream channel, thanks for taking the time. You can follow along after the jump with our Q&A. Thanks for listening!
Autoblog Podcast #339:
Actor Dick Van Dyke was caught in a dangerous situation on a Los Angeles highway (who are we kidding, every situation on an LA highway is dangerous), when his Jaguar XJ spontaneously caught fire. The 87-year-old actor/comedian pulled to the side and attempted to call emergency services when another motorist pulled him from the car. There seems to be some confusion as to whether Van Dyke was passed out or merely calling emergency services.
According to the photos and video from NBC and The Today Show, the car was thoroughly cooked in the blaze and is now a total loss. After the incident, Van Dyke's wife, Arlene, posted that the actor was "fine," sharing a Vine video of the star, the car, and a few CHP troopers that were on hand. Later in the day, Van Dyke tweeted a photo of his toasted sedan, saying, "Used Jag for sale REAL CHEAP!!"
You can view the Today show segment on the incident as well as Arlene Van Dyke's Vine video, below.
Jaguar Land Rover is on a bit of a tech bent today. It's announced its new family of four-cylinder engines and a "self-learning" vehicle Range Rover prototype, and now it's announced what it calls the Jaguar Virtual Windscreen.
The technology is similar to other head-up displays and telematics recorders already on the market, the Jaguar Virtual Windscreen concept takes things to the next level to turn real-life driving into a video game-like experience. It's being demonstrated with data like lap times, grid positions, virtual racing line and brake guidance... even "ghost" cars from previous laps and virtual cones for simulated autocrossing. Just like you'd find in the latest version of Forza or Gran Turismo, but you know... in an actual car - in this case a Jaguar F-Type. It's similar to the Transparent Bonnet system Land Rover revealed a couple of months ago, but instead of rock-crawling, it's for the race track.
The system also incorporates gesture controls and could be configured to display instrument data, a video feed from a rear-view camera to replace the mirror. Check out the details and the video below for a closer look at what JLR has got in store for the near future.
