Most hotels would be satisfied with just having a luxury Jaguar ride onsite to squire guests around town but the 51 Buckingham Gate Hotel in London has gone all out with the first-ever Jaguar Suite, set to open in September.

The 1,832-square-foot, two-bedroom residential-style suite is the result of a new partnership between two TATA-owned companies, Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces and of course, Jaguar. So what's inside?

Well, Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum and his designers have taken materials from the cars--leather, metal and high gloss veneer--and worked them into the suite like the sleek wood panelling in the entry, the Jaguar damask that lines the bedroom walls, a clean-fuel fireplace that looks like the Jag's rear window and get this, custom-made Jaguar wallpaper. Let the Shaguar jokes begin!

Speaking of shagging, here's a bit more on the suite's bedrooms:

The two bedrooms are fitted with super-king sized beds with Italian leather headboards, soft carpets, state-of-the-art fittings, a 32 inch wall mounted television and custom-made wallpaper with subtle Jaguar motifs. The en-suite bathrooms feature top-end design with adaptable mood lighting, marble floored walk-in showers and oversized baths.

The suite also features a living room with large windows and a courtyard-facing balcony and the aforementioned Jaguar fireplace. There's also a fully-equipped, "gloss-black" kitchen as well as a dining room that can seat 10 people.

The suite is, of course, tricked out with the latest technology such as a 42" TV in the living room, Denon and Creston sound systems, a Blu-Ray DVD player, iPod docking station and Sonance ceiling speakers. And we can't forget the carefully selected Jaguar collectibles like the toy cars along the wall.

Guests who book the suite will also get a chauffeur-driven Jaguar for airport transfers and transportation (within London), a 24-hour private butler service and daily breakfast. Guests who book the suite will also have to be rich enough to afford the £5,250 (or approximately $8,615) a night rate. But it's got to be worth it, right?
