After the now Indian automaker, Jaguar, unveiled the latest version of their luxury limousine the XJ sedan, the classic English automaker has also announced plans for a two door coupe version based on the same vehicle, in other words, a return of the legendary two-door XJC that was built between 1975 and 1978.
Rumors suggest that the Jaguar design studio is already hard at work creating sketches of the future sports car and the proposed XJC is already looking nice. The future Jaguar coupe should be styled heavily based upon the looks of the current XJ luxury limousine, but that is just speculation. However, what we do know is that the next XJC will feature a full length glass roof, a set of 21 inch rims and the new XJ’s hi-tech cabin.
The 2010 XJ sedan is the first Jaguar car to be built atop the automaker’s all-new aerospace-inspired aluminum unit body technology. The four door version will soon be available with the owner’s choice of new ultra-efficient Gen III gas and diesel burning engines ranging from a 3.0 Liter diesel V6 to a naturally aspirated 5.0 Liter V8 and a supercharged version with the same displacement. No matter which power plant is chosen, the new XJ should carry the same power and handling performance that has made all previous XJ models the automotive icons that they are recognized as today.
