XJ Sentinel

Written By kentoznoism on 3/13/2011 | 8:11 PM

The XJ Sentinel combines the uncompromised luxury, refined power and leading-edge design common to the entire XJ range with the reassurance, security and protection of bespoke armouring.

The spacious interior provides an environment that is relaxing, comfortable and luxurious. Softgrain leather and hand-crafted veneers feature extensively throughout, and rear seat passengers can enjoy one metre of legroom.

Jaguar's powerful 5.0 Litre V8 385PS engine ensures XJ Sentinel delivers performance that is responsive, swift and agile – 0-100 km/h in 9.7 seconds (0-60 mph in 9.4 seconds), top speed 195km/h (121 mph). Advanced driving technologies such as JaguarDrive Control™ and Adaptive Dynamics provide a ride that is refined and composed.


The XJ Sentinel has been designed to provide discreet armoured protection, and has undergone extensive independent testing and certification to the latest national and international standards by QinetiQ®. It offers ballistic protection up to B7 level (BS EN 1522 level FB7 and BS EN 1063 BR7-), blast protection against 15kg TNT equivalent detonated within close proximity of the vehicle, and substantial under floor grenade protection.

In addition to the car's armoured inner cell, XJ Sentinel features extensive modifications including revised suspension settings, strengthened 19" Aleutian alloy wheels and the powerful High Performance Braking System that is standard fitment on Jaguar's non-armoured Supercharged models. It retains full restraint system functionality, including dual-stage driver and passenger front and side thoracic airbags and side curtain airbags, and, despite its increased mass, can carry an outstanding payload of up to 500kg.

A range of specialised optional features are also available and can be tailored to meet individual requirements.
