Jaguar has released the first of what are sure to be many official teaser images of its highly anticipated all-new XJ sedan.
To coincide with the Shanghai motor show, Jaguar Cars Managing Director, Mike O’Driscoll, has confirmed that the new generation XJ will be revealed on July 9 in London and will go on sale at the end of 2009.
This first top-down teaser image reveals surprisingly little about the car’s design, although it does showcase the new panoramic glass roof.
The new model will pioneer Jaguar’s next-generation aerospace-inspired aluminium body architecture and will include the choice of either standard or long wheelbase models.
All of Jaguar’s new ultra-efficient Gen III petrol and diesel engines will be available in the new XJ, including the already acclaimed V6 diesel and 380kW supercharged V8.
Enthusiasts can follow the XJ’s staggered reveal online at the new dedicated web portal; otherwise all will be revealed come July 9 as the car becomes available to order for delivery by early 2010.
