"Being a part of The Neiman Marcus Christmas Book is a spectacular way to launch the Jaguar XJ, one of the most anticipated new luxury cars in the market this year," says Richard Beattie, Executive Vice President, Marketing & Sales, Jaguar. "Designed to attract the clientele of Neiman Marcus as well as automotive enthusiasts, the Neiman Marcus XJL Supercharged is unique and intelligent. It demonstrates our commitment to producing fast, beautiful cars that offer luxury, performance and first-rate quality."

Differences from normal XJ models include an exclusive Celestial Black metallic paint exterior, 20-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels and illuminated tread plates. The interior features custom butter-soft navy and ivory leather with Zebrano matte wood accents. Extra exclusivity is ensured by the custom interior Intaglio that reads "Neiman Marcus 1 of 50"

The car will be powered by Jaguar's new 5.0-litre supercharged V8 putting out 375kW (510hp). It's run by a 6-speed automatic transmission with paddleshifters behind the leather-clad steering wheel.

Interior luxuries include an 8-inch touch-screen and a 20-speaker Bowers & Wilkins 1,200-watt premium sound system.
