2010 Jaguar XJ Photos LEAKED

2010 Jaguar XJ leaked photos - 800

Following months of spy pictures, speculation, teasers (including videos) and very little official information, the Jaguar XJ will finally be unveiled tomorrow (Thursday, 9th of July 2009) during an exclusive event in London. That is when more intimate details and full images will be available. For now take a closer look at these leaked pictures.

The next XJ is promised to be the new class-leader in a segment led by the BMW 7 Series and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, as well as the Audi A8 and the Lexus LS. Jaguar seeks to reclaim its spot alongside these luminaries after years of being sidelined by both buyers and the motoring media.

Jaguar is using aerospace-inspired aluminium body architecture for the first time in a car with the XJ. The technology is next-generation stuff and is likely to filter down into other next-generation Jaguars.

Powerful engines will match or even outperform some of its competitors. Here we can mention engines like the new 275hp (202kW), 600Nm 3.0-litre twin turbo diesel and the 5.0-litre V8 with natural aspiration. A supercharged XJR might use the engine that makes 510hp (380kW) in the XFR/ XKR but have its power upped to keep up with the BMW 760i and the Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG. Of course this is just pure speculation at this point in time.

Prospective customers will be able to register their orders after 19:30 GMT on Thursday. First deliveries are to take place in early 2010.

It’s tough to reinvent an icon like the XJ. Let’s face it, the XJ was long in the tooth and needed more than an evolutionary update to have any family resemblance to the XKR, which I like a lot. The new XJ and XF share some of those design characteristics. I read an article about the BMW 6 series in Autocar. I thought they nailed it saying “it’s to be admired but not desired.” IMO, the interior of the XK is one of the nicest designs out there and it is beautifully executed. It has a special and desirable quality that is missing from others, such as the Mercedes CL. I hope the new instrument display doesn’t sabotage that sense with the XJ. The XF is a nice design. I don’t know that I like the XJ better. I’ll wait until I see one in person. I think this one will grow on me in a way that the 7 series never has.

This is the new benchmark in luxury motoring, may take time for some people to get used to something so revolutionary mind.

It would be perfect if it weren't so dam ugly! just kidding, it's not bad. I just think it will get boring really fast. Sure it's long sleek, and elegant, but there's nothing revolutionary about this design. Which I believe is what Jaguar needs right now.

you know what, everytime i go back and take a look at those pictures, i like it more and more. it is really one graceful, sexy design. too bad i still can't get used to those blacked out pillars, but... still a front runner on the full size beauty contest. my only question is: now that even the xj has become a sexy beast... then there are no other jaguars to be driven in? too bad... now i guess one will have to go for a bentley or a rr in order to be chauffered in british style. maybe now could be the perfect time for tata to come up with a huge, traditional, noble and 'very british' luxury saloon, designed for people who want/need to be driven... and call it a daimler. now THAT is a heritage.

The XF is nice car & the XJ looks nice too apart from the rear, but none of them look like jaguars, the design language that made a JAG a JAG is dying and i will miss it dearly. its ok to play with all the other cars looks but the XJ's design was not changed it evolved through out its life.I think they should have just continued the evolution and tinkered with all the other models GOOD BYE JAGUAR XJ HELLO TATA XJ

Yup, front and side are good, back just blows. And they said the rear of the Panamera looked ugly?? It has grown on me and I actually like the car, this...will not. YUCK!

They agreed XF-concept's h-lights too good for its production version and hold them for older. I like it. I think it's the most beautiful car in the segment, along with Maseratti 4-porte, or even maybe the one. I love its coupe-like silhouette (this reminds me Tesla Modes-S, which reminded Aston Martin). Back is not bad, but I would be more impressed if get horizontal taillihgts in DB9's style. But the black-covered d-pillars are unnecessary, they never looks as common back windscreen.

I wanted so much to love this car. And I do, I do. But I want my eyes to flow smoothly from one end of a Jag to another. There are too many styling interruptions. The blacked out C pillars are just not necessary. Neither are the taillights which extend vertically rather than horizontally like on the XF. This was probably done to liberate metal on the bootlid for that premium feel, but breaks styling cohesion, something I hoped Jag would maintain with the new generation (the S-type was the chink the last time around, fat old thing). This break in cohesion continues - Horizontal side vents vs vertical (which I prefer) and most of all the headlights. Ah, you think it's similar, but after the C-XF concept which had exactly these lights, we were let down by the XF's lights, we thought it was not possible. Now we know it IS possible, and the XF just looks like a lumpy, retarded younger brother. Never a good thing.

The designers began to work on the C-XF as the developing of the XF was nearly finished - there was no opportunity to make major changes on the design.

I agree with most comments here, the front is beautiful but the back doesn't work from the top of the rear window back.

saw this last night at that website. The front is more C-XF than XF, which is nice, but the back is not curvy enough to be elegant and graceful, also the boot line is too high.
