An all-new Jaguar XJ will make its public debut this July – and today saw the preview and release of first information on this breathtaking new Jaguar.

Speaking at Auto Shanghai 2009, Jaguar Cars Managing Director, Mike O'Driscoll confirmed that:

• The all-new XJ will go on sale at the end of 2009 - but will officially be revealed on July 9th in London.

• The all-new XJ is the first car to feature the next-generation of Jaguar's aerospace-inspired aluminium body architecture.

• 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 510 bhp supercharged V8.

• There will be a choice of standard- or long wheelbase models.

• The all-new XJ will introduce the highest standards of personal luxury and specification, including a panoramic glass roof.

Full details of the all-new XJ including prices will be revealed on July 9th and orders for delivery in early 2010 will be taken from this time.

Dependent on market, the all-new XJ will be in dealerships from the end of this year.

Finally a nice big version.

I think it looks very interesting. The front end and boot lid are nicely sculpted and the rear lights look really interesting too.

The main thing is obviously the rear pillars as they seem to be non existent! I really like how the chrome around the window continues through this black void and can't wait to see it from the side. While it would be very expensive to engineer and produce I would really love to see the pillar be glazed.

Overall an interesting leak to keep people ticking over until July.

looks like the c-pillar's going to be controversial. my prediction is that its going to look like a bigger xf, but with the c-pillar of a citroen.

Yes I am very interested to see how that C-pillar treatment works; the rear in general looks like it will be the most controversial (and likely most beautiful) angle.

I have a feeling this car will be a real stunner.

the c-pillar isn't completed blacked out, there is a thin strip (which i at least didnt' see at first)
it's wierd how the widest part of the car seems to be where the front wheels are with no equal width section in the rear

It seems to be that the thin strip is a chrome trim around the actual window - would make it an even weirder treatment. But I'm excited how it is really resolved.
I guess memories to the Ford Scorpio/Granada shouldn't be too many (large hatchback with "all glass" c-pilar) ;)
