Ronnie Corbett has just taken delivery of his New Jaguar XJ 3.0 Diesel Portfolio. Ronnie has been no stranger to Jaguar at Grange Croydon and we know him well.
Having taken a phone call from his lovely secretary, an appointment was made for him to come and look at the Jaguar range the same day.
Ronnie explained that his good friend Jimmy Tarbuck has a Jaguar XJ 3.0, and because Jimmy loves it, was enough for him to pay us a visit to Grange Jaguar Croydon for a test drive.
Having compared the size of the Jaguar XJ to his Mercedes S CLASS, to make sure it was no bigger, he went for a drive around Croydon. Accompanied by our sales associate John O’Shea, Ronnie decided he liked the drive of the Jaguar XJ and that his decision to have it was an easy one.
After 10 minutes of working the figures out, a deal was done on a Metallic Silver one in the showroom and a delivery date set.
It was an honour and a joy to deal with such a legend and a gentleman.
We welcome Mr Corbett back to both Grange Croydon and Jaguar.
The New Jaguar XJ Ultimate is the most luxurious and expensive version of Jaguar’s big saloon yet. It arrives in the UK in November and is expected to be approximately £120,000.
Work in luxury, relax in total comfort. Stretch out and let XJ Ultimate indulge you with everything at your fingertips. There’s the table that gracefully rises out of the centre console, the beautifully styled bottle chiller and the iPads docked in the backs of the front seats. A special place that you can call your own, XJ Ultimate is utterly distinctive.
Stretch out on the sumptuous semi-aniline leather of either of the two individually tailored rear seats. Offering recline, heating/cooling as well as four-way lumbar adjust, they can even treat you to a massage. The semi-aniline leather also extends to the front seats. A chauffeur switch can automatically fold the front passenger seat away offering maximum space for the rear seats.
Adding to the dramatic interior design is an electrically powered table. It rises gracefully from the centre console and can be rotated left or right as required. The rear section of the centre console also houses a 75cl bottle chiller for cooling drinks to the optimum temperature. Two handcrafted Goran Hongell ‘Aarne’ Champagne glasses are provided as standard with XJ Ultimate. The console also docks the Touch-screen Rear Seat Entertainment system remote control as well as rear climate controls and an array of connectors for any portable devices.
XJ Ultimate makes no compromise in quality in even its slightest touches such as the exquisite brushed aluminium clock, the brilliant LED courtesy lighting for rear passengers, or even the leather umbrella retainer points in the boot. At night experience the tranquillity of the cool phosphor blue illumination delineating the interior features, framing the treadplates, JaguarDrive Selector™, Electronic Parking Brake (EPB), and door architecture.
The new Jaguar XJ Ultimate will be available in Grange Jaguar Brentwood, Exeter, Swindon & Welwyn when it arrives in the UK.
