Based on a Sovereign model - the XJR model was equipped with an up-to-date suspension with unique Bilstein dampers, a revised steering control valve to increase the wheel weight with 40% and special outdoor paints and outer styling. Technically, the XJR Sports is equipped with Bilstein sports suspension, limited slip differential and a 4-litre in-line six AJ6 engine, good for 250 HP thanks to electronics and complete exhausts developed by TWR (Tom Walkinshaw Racing).
