What’s a moneyed Anglophile to do when his life has come in danger? The BMW 7 Series offers a nice package, but a BMW is just so very cliché. Enter the Armoured Jaguar XJ Long Wheelbase, a bespoke motor of sublime elegance and protection for those who demand both in equal measure.

The pouncing cat has built an armoured luxury saloon that meets Jaguar standards of driving dynamics and luxury. The result is a Jaguar virtually indistinguishable from a stock XJ, but packing a host of anti-assassination goodies.

The car comes complete with Kevlar body panel inserts, a titanium roof, even underbody armor plating. It’s certified with a B6 level of ballistic protection, and capable of withstanding grenade blasts. The self-sealing fuel tank has an over-ride should the chauffeur decide you need to move, fast. The car rides on Pirelli tyres with the Road guard run-flat system and a beefier suspension to handle the added weight. There’s also a list of options including an independent oxygen supply, tamper-proof exhaust and alarm sirens.

Jaguar XJ Armoured Saloon
The Jaguar XJ Armoured undergoes one of the most thorough and painstaking processes in accordance with European standards and independent blast and ballistic testing.  Bullet resistant glazing, ballistic armouring, run flat tyres and Kevlar® floor protection all contribute to ensuring that the vehicle can withstand attack from high velocity, high calibre bullets and help provide optimum occupant protection.

Powerful & Secure

Based on the Long Wheelbase XJ, the Armoured  XJ Security Vehicle meets the highest criteria for security.

The stock 4.2-liter V8 should be sufficient to remove the motor-carriage and its occupants from harm’s way in a hurry.
