Car Nut Heaven: London’s US$7,875 a Night Jaguar Suite

If James Bond ever needed a permanent residence in London, chances are it would look a lot like 51 Buckingham Gate Taj Suites and Residences’ Jaguar Suite.
Costing £5,100 (US$7,875) a night and decked out in oak veneer, leather, damask and stainless steel, general manager Prabhat Verma describes the suite as a, “24-hour Jaguar immersion experience”.
There are also historical photos, framed hood ornaments and 1:100 scale model cars scattered throughout.
The 1,832 square foot (170 square metres) suite consists of two bedrooms with joining bathrooms, a spacious living room, courtyard, study, ten-seat dining room and kitchen.
Jaguar designs supremo Ian Callum is said to have offered his input into the design. There are twin “super king-size” beds, Italian leather headboards, soft carpets and a 32-inch (81 cm) television in the bedroom while the ensuites feature mood lightning, marble floored showers and oversized baths.
There’s a 42-inch (107 cm) television embedded in one wall of the living room while the clean-fuel fireplace is said to be reminiscent of Jaguar’s rear window line. The suite also features premium sound, a Blu-ray player, an iPod dock and ceiling speakers located throughout.
There’s also two restaurants onsite, a 24-hour butler service and a chauffeured Jaguar XJ to take you anywhere in London. Breakfast is also included.
In a funny twist, the 68 room 51 Buckingham Gate Taj Suites and Residences is owned by the Indian Tata Group, the same concern that owns Jaguar and Land Rover.
You can check out a few images of the suite below and marvel at how the other half lives.
