Autocar’s spy photographers have snapped these pics of the new Jaguar XJ.
Jaguar’s radical new executive model is also now just weeks away from being unveiled, Autocar can reveal. The new car will be stripped of its extensive disguise some seven months or so before its scheduled on sale date at the beginning of 2010.
These latest spy shots of the car also show that the Jaguar XJ will have the option of a fully glazed roof. The clear roof and the car’s shallow side windows are reminiscent of the 1992 XJ220 supercar.
Although the new Jaguar XJ is based on the all-aluminium chassis of the current car, it has been completely rethought.
Jaguar design boss Ian Callum is aiming to finally reinvent the company flagship’s styling language some 41 years after the original XJ was launched.
Those who have seen the car describe it as “very long and very low” with a coupe-like roofline. It is also said to be more radical in appearance than the recently launched XF, while the interior will get more in the way of high-tech proximity switches and subtle night-time LED lighting.
