2013 Jaguar Ultimate XJ interior

Most Luxurious Jaguar Ever Unveiled at Beijing Auto Show

The sneak peak that Jaguar gave over the weekend of its most luxurious model ever turns out to be the 2013 Jaguar XJ Ultimate.

Only 30 of the models are going to be available in the United States. You can buy one for $155,000 in any color you want – as its black Amethyst. Discreet external detailing and badging differentiates the Ultimate from other XJ variants.

So, what makes it the most luxurious ever? It's going to have a hand-crafted interior. As first suggested on Saturday after a review of the sneak peak video, it will also individually tailored rear seats are trimmed in semi-aniline premium leather with power adjustment and recline, lumbar support, massage function and climate controls.

This is going to be a car for those who like to be driven and not so much for the driver as revealed in other amenities. The rear seat opulence includes: a rear business table, machined from solid aluminum with piano black trim, powers into position at the touch of a button; a pair of bespoke champagne flutes resides in a dedicated storage area beneath the powered table; and what's the point of champagne flutes without a champagne chiller between the rear seats cools the bottle to the perfect temperature and automatically presents it when the cabinet is opened.
