Jaguar XJ Sentinel Mixes Security and Luxury
What good is luxury if you're not alive to enjoy it? That very well might be the logic behind the new XJ Sentinel from Jaguar, recently unveiled at the 2010 Moscow International Motor Show.
For the Sentinel, Jaguar has outfitted its top-of-the-line XJ luxury sedan with B7-level ballistics protection capable of withstanding barrage from any number of firearms and explosives. Naturally the extra weight (all 7,275 pounds of it) takes a toll on performance, with the burdened 385-horsepower 5-liter V8 taking nearly ten seconds to reach 62 miles per hour from a standstill, but the brakes and suspension have been upgraded to handle the task.
