Jaguar promised to unveil a totally redesigned model in 2009, taking design cues taken from the latest XF-C Concept and the current XF super sedan. Even if the next generation XJ sedan will keep the car’s aluminum platform, everything on the exterior will be changed. As the Indian automaker prepares for its upcoming launch less than a month away in July one thing is for certain. Wherever a future super car is testing, spy photographers are never too far behind!

Jag building a new straight six? And a blown one at that? An angel just got its wings. But to be honest, I am anticipating this new rendering as I know the British company have more to offer and I am waiting will Jaguar unveils it’s peoduction version officially.

I really like the XJ’s in their old, stately appearence but Christ, please start modernizing the styling some and maybe people below the age of 75 will want to buy one. The new XK is pretty hot...the XF’s decent...why not merge the two?

PAG’s replacement for the Duratec-V6 was to be a Volvo-designed Straight-6, am I correct? Apparently it’s very smooth and revvy, and comes with or without turbo.

Also, you can’t sell british if the british aren’t buying. Then you’re just selling tat for tourists. Or a curio. I say save the Pininfarina design for Daimler/Lanchester badged Bristol/Bentley competitor, so you can give the design more suitable proportions that aren’t hamstrung by convention.

I saw an new XJR in a part of town where S class Benzes and 7 series are so common as to meld in with the landscape. Not only did it stand out, but I thought it looked great in a Bentley Arnage classic kind of way.

Couple that with the aluminum construction, and it seems like an attractive combination combination. I doubt I’ll covet anything that comes out looking as though it is related to the XF.

Just to add there will also be a heavily revised twin-turbo 2.7-liter V6 diesel that should deliver more than the current engine’s 207 HP and 321 lb-ft of torque. Expect increased economy and reduced emissions as well. I think that something that we must look forward aside from the looks, as we all know, XJ will feature a more radical bodykit than its predecessors in the Jaguar line up, but it promises the same luxurious experience and now more power to the monster machine

The 2010 Jaguar XJ is nearing production and its makers are pulling the stops out to finalize its new engines which is said to have better handling compared to its predecessor. The new XJ will debut three new powerplants that should deliver both improved performance and improved efficiency. And boy does the Jaguar range need plenty of both. But what will they be? It will start with a 5.0-liter V8 available in both supercharged and naturally aspirated form will power the range topping XJ V8 and XJR. Expect more power than the current 4.2-liter V8, which makes 300 HP and 420 HP with the aid of a blower. Sounds interesting I can wait to see the finale!

Since the 1950s, Jaguar has made its name for their series of elegantly styled sports car and luxury saloons. I’m sure that they can still carry on with that reputation.

It’s hard to imagine what could possible be inside those protective sheets they have placed on that car. Based from its shape, its so far from its previous model who has a long, edged nose. Anyway, I’m sure that whatever happens, the leaping Jaguar would still have a beautiful place up in front.

I’m happy with the technical side of the previous XJ model its just that their exterior is not very appealing to the younger professionals who can afford to buy one and store them in their parking space. So I think that redefining its exterior would make a good difference.

Rumors are circulating that the new Jaguar XJ would have better handling. This is of course aside from the fact that aluminum body structure made it lighter than its previous models. The good thing about this is that the new XJ is available in both V6 and V8 engines.

Spy photographers are not only here simply because they are spy photographers. They’re here because they are hoping to get a glimpse of this beauty because Jaguar XJ has a long history. It was launched in 1968 and served as the flagship model with production that spans until today. No wonder everyone would surely be excited to see how they are able to keep up with the demands and expectations of the market.
