Startech Debuts Jaguar XJ Tuning Program

Startech Debuts Jaguar XJ Tuning Program

Startech has developed their brand around German-styling for American vehicles. A division of Brabus, (arguably the most prestigious Mercedes-Benz tuner in the world), Startech offers several tuning programs for Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Land Rover. Most recently however, the new Jaguar XJ attracted Startech’s attention, prompting the company to develop a tuning program for Jaguar’s newest model.

The Jaguar XJ is getting a lot of praise as being a sporty luxury sedan. Sleek bodylines and elegant styling have been further enhanced with Startech’s body kit with an add-on front fascia equipped with LED daytime running lights. The front end modifications doesn’t end there, however, with Startech designing new fenders fully equipped with vents. In the rear things get a little more subtle with a new rear apron and diffuser plus add-on tips to the stock exhaust system. Possibly the best accent to the entire kit is the conservative lip spoiler on the trunk.

A staggered set of 21-inch wheels are seen with 21×9.5-inch in the front and 21×11-inch in the rear. These 21-inch rollers fit the wheel wells nicely and sit perfectly on the fenders with Startech’s 30-mm lowering kit, which works with the XJ’s adaptive suspension. Interior amenities are mostly personal preference with several options available to the consumer from custom leather and Alcantara seats to custom wood trim to color-matched floor mats.

PRESS RELEASE

The new XJ sedan from Jaguar enters the luxury car market with a markedly progressive design. Soon STARTECH (Brabus-Allee, D-46240 Bottrop, phone + 49 / (0) 20 41 / 777 547, fax + 49 / (0) 20 41 / 777 111, Internet www.startech.de) will offer an exclusive sport program for the new XJ. The product lineup will include a dynamically styled aerodynamic-enhancement kit, custom-tailored 21-inch forged wheels with corresponding ride-height lowering, and exclusive interior customization options.

The sleek roofline of the XJ gives the car almost fastback character and it immediately sets the new Jaguar apart from the rest of the luxury sedan market. The STARTECH designers have developed a sporty yet elegant body kit that will make the new XJ even more unique.

The front of the four-door car gains even more profile with the STARTECH front element that attaches to the production bumper. Its large air ducts are an instant eye-catcher while the overall sophisticated shape of the STARTECH component reduces lift on the front axle. LED daytime running lights integrated into the air ducts optimize active safety on public roads.

The front fenders are replaced by STARTECH quarter panels whose integrated air outlets lend the sedan a more sporty appearance. They are complemented by new rocker panel trim that attaches in front of the rear wheel arches.

The rear of the XJ also received an innovative STARTECH upgrade. The new rear apron features an integrated diffuser and two integrated striking STARTECH exhaust tips that are combined with the production exhaust system.

An understated rear spoiler lip on the trunk lid creates an optimal aerodynamic balance between front and rear. It is the final piece in the STARTECH body kit for the Jaguar.

Special versions of the STARTECH Monostar J Diamond edition wheels were developed specifically to complement the STARTECH designer suit and to make full use of the available space in the wheel houses of the new Jaguar XJ. The three-piece forged wheels are mounted in size 9.5Jx21 in front and in size 11Jx21 on the rear axle. The wheels feature mirror-polished surfaces interspersed with brushed-look sections and represent a perfect combination of light weight and top quality.

STARTECH also offers a matching ride-height lowering of the XJ’s adaptive suspension by some 30 millimeters.

The new British luxury car is also an excellent object for exclusive interior upgrades à la STARTECH. The interior designers have a multitude of leather and Alcantara colors on offer that the master craftsmen in the company upholstery shop transform into custom interiors at the highest level of perfection.

Another exceptional STARTECH specialty is the transfer of a truly maritime ambiance into the interior of an automobile. On the XJ that goes beyond a fully leather interior crafted from especially soft and breathable riverboat-design leather.

A new type of wood trim, assembled from hundreds of individual parts to resemble a miniature yacht veneer, is an absolute jewel. Depending on customer preferences the wood trim can feature blond ash wood with dark brown separating layers or in the style of classic Italian sport boats brown mahogany with blond separators. Customers can also choose from high-gloss polished smooth and open-pore matte surface finishes.

In addition, STARTECH also offers a wide range of select accessories such as high-gloss-polished stainless-steel scuff plates with illuminated STARTECH logo and high-quality floor mats with color-coordinated leather borders.
