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

Speaking at Auto Shanghai 2009, Jaguar Cars Limited’s 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 in London on the 9th July, 2009.

– 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 the 9th July, 2009 and orders for delivery in early 2010 will be taken from that date. Dependent on market, the all-new XJ will be in dealerships from the end of this year.

Clive claims that his interest in the BMC>MG story dates back to his childhood in the 1960s when the family’s garage premises were leased to a tenant with an Austin agency. However, back in the 1920s and 1930s, his grandmother was one of the country’s first female Garage Proprietors so cars probably run in his genes! Admits to affairs with Alfa Romeos, but has more recently owned an 06/06 MG TF 135 and then a 15/64 MG3 Style… Clive, who was AROnline’s News Editor for nearly four years, stood down from that role in order to devote more time to various Motor Racing projects but still contributes articles on as regular basis as his other commitments permit.
