For the past 50 years, one Jaguar model has graced roadways around the world. Defining what a luxury car should be, the Jaguar XJ is the perfect combination of cutting-edge technology, sporting vehicle dynamics and ageless, opulent beauty.
Celebrating its golden anniversary, Jaguar released the limited edition XJ50. A benchmark luxury sedan, the XJ set a high standard for power, offering one of the first and only V12 engines in a 4-door sedan. In fact, for several years, it reigned as the fastest 4-seater on the market, changing lives with a top speed of 140 mph. Over 8 generations, the XJ set trends with innovations like the J-gate gear shifter and the first-of-its-kind self-leveling suspension.
Representing the pinnacle of luxury automotive achievement, Velocity Honolulu is honored to be part of the automakers roots and continues to celebrate the classic automobiles that have built such an amazing brand.
In 2018, the Jaguar XJ is still at the cusp of luxury automotive performance and design.
Spanning half a century, the Jaguar XJ remains true to its heritage with a wonderful balance of beautiful design, intelligent performance and indulgent luxury that ensures it stands out from the crowd. This is a car worth celebrating and the XJ50 pays homage to a giant within the Jaguar brand that we believe is one of the world’s most stylish sporting saloons.

Offering unprecedented power, the XJ50’s longer wheelbase houses a 3.0-liter supercharged gasoline V6 to produce 340 horsepower, available in either rear- or all-wheel-drive. For the more power-hungry, buyers can also opt for a 470-hp 5.0-liter supercharged gas V8 with rear-wheel drive.
Inside and out, the XJ50 will stand out from the standard XJ, thanks to unique badging in the front and side vents and illuminated tread plates, as well as an XJ50 logo on the center armrest. Other design distinctions include 20-inch Venom wheels with gloss black diamond turned finish, gloss black front grille, and Autobiography-style front and rear bumpers on the exterior, and the inside gets updates with aluminum gearshift paddles, bright metal pedals, and diamond-quilted seats with an embossed Jaguar leaper on the headrests.
