English Tomcat with Italian Flair – Jaguar XF by Pilato

What do you get when you cross a classy Englishman with a bellissimo Italian? An English Tomcat with Italian Flair – Jaguar XF by Pilato Hearse! The charm of two stylish European brands drips from this model.

Before we talk about this beautiful funeral car, the English male with Italian Flair – Jaguar XF by Pilato, some background information. Pilato is a family business that was founded by Luigi Pilato in the early sixties. This former owner of a funeral company in Ponte della Priula (not far from Venice) regularly converted Mercedes Benzen into luxury fun cars in his spare time, together with a bunch of crazy colleagues. As is often the case with hobbies that include emozione, this got completely out of hand – in a positive way. Luigi’s leisure activities became his most important work. He enthusiastically founded the company Autotrasformazioni Pilato S.R.L. on. He even infected his wife and three daughters with the conversion virus. They all work in the business.

Something beautiful is blooming

Over the years, the collaboration with Mercedes became even closer. In the eighties, Pilato was already a household name on the Italian funeral car market. And he is slowly but surely starting to “do” other brands such as Fiat, Peugeot, Ford and Citroen. In 1999, Luigi changed the name of his company to Pilato S.P.A and if he transformed a Jaguar XJ into “The Queen” in 2008, the success was huge. So large in fact that soon more beautiful flowers bloom between the Italian Hearse freak and the stylish brand with the cat. In 2010 the Aurora, the funeral car that was born from the XF, sees the first light.

Stylish gray tomcat

The Jaguar XF by Pilato model that is now available at The Hearse & Limo Company is from 2011 and its beating heart consists of the 240 hp 3.0 V6 diesel. This stylish gray tomcat has only walked 63,645 kilometers at our Zuiderburen. The black leather interior invites many, relaxed and elegant rides. The car is available on request with the German “schlittensystem” or rolls in the floor. Do you want more information or do you want to bring the engine to life with a push of the pulsating start button? Call Ruud Derks or Marc van Ravensteijn. They are happy to help!
