Latest picture shows new Jaguar XJ's body structure
25 June 2009

Jaguar's XJ has been shown in yet another teaser picture.

The official image shows the new Jaguar XJ's body structure, to highlight its aluminum body shell and the advantages this brings in weight savings and, consequently, fuel economy and CO2 emissions.

We've also added some video stills to our gallery section, taken from a promotional video released today. Again, they show the XJ's body structure.

The new Jaguar XJ is reported to have very radical rear styling treatment that will make the new XJ the most striking-looking executive saloon when sales start at the year’s end.

Its public debut will come a few months earlier at a glitzy London launch on 9 July.

Both short and long-wheelbase versions wil be launched together. Power will come from a twin-turbo 3.0-litre diesel and 510bhp supercharged 5.0-litre V8.

Jag has also confirmed that the new car will be launched in both short and long wheelbase versions.

All models are likely to be highly specified and customers will be able to tailor spec and options more than on previous Jags. The new XJ also comes with a panoramic glass roof.
