A unique convoy representing the past and present of the Jaguar XJ journeyed from the Jaguar Castle Bromwich plant in the UK to the Paris Motor Show to celebrate 50 years of the flagship luxury saloon.

The line-up featured all eight generations of XJ produced since 1968. The special collection was led by the car that started it all, the Series I, and finished with the most recent XJ50 special edition, revealed earlier this year.

‘A true giant in the automotive world’

“The Jaguar XJ story is one of design, desirability and performance and over the past 50 years it has become a true giant in the automotive world and it’s only right that we pay homage to it in this special way. When I started at Jaguar, the XJ was already an icon of car design, so to have been part of this story that has been told over half a century has been an absolute privilege.” Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design
