Nice shots raging bull. Justifies my signature perfectly. Not because I'm a Jaguar lover but park an S Class and 7 Series next to this and you will know what character is all about. Beautiful piece of machinery.

Saw one XJ in my university campus yesterday. Boy, that cat is so beautiful. Brilliant design, just oozes the elegance and character!

Great pics Ragingbull.

This will definitely be my pick from Jag's current line up.

I've said this before and I'm saying this again.Stylistically speaking,I think the XJ's a bit too big to pull off that coupe profile as effortlessly as the XF.It just falls short of the perfection that the XF is! And that blacked-out C pillar clearly looks like an afterthought,trying in vain to visually cloak that fat rear.Just my opinion!

That said,she'll be quite a sight in the flesh.Especially in black.She' got overwhelming road presence! Lovely snaps there theragingbull.

Wholeheartedly!

As I'd mentioned in my earlier post, I honestly think that the blackened C-pillar and that overly extended swoop in the roof-line doesn't gel with the rest of the elegant yet purposeful design. From the rear three-quarters, something doesn't look right. And for some reason, the rear reminds me of the Indigo Manza's!

The XF is still the better looking car IMO, but just slightly!

The last pic shows a hint of similarity between the headlamps of the XJ and the tail-lamps of the Q5. I mean the shape of the lights. Anyone else thinks so?

HDIL Tower

This place is more like Exotics Showcase......Every luxury saloon we can see at here...

This particular example does not look that good because of its wheels. I think it should have bigger wheels to become the classy car that it is.

Saw one Black XJ today at BARC Flyover near Mankhurd and it had Temp Reg plates, was going towards Vashi.

Its one stunning looking car and I have to agree with Dippy's Signature that "it does make the S Class and 7 Series look like wimps"

Must be the same car I saw in the dealership the other day. I cant wait the 'R' version of the XJ to come out. The XJR will be awesome.

Dippy,I don't think there is an R version in the XJ. Its just the XJ/XJL supercharged and the supersport version.
The Eaton supercharged XJ/XJL has got the 470 hp and the supersport XJ/XJL has got 510hp(same as the XKR,XKR/c and XFR) .

Seen this Jaguar XJ-L in Peddar Road and have to say that the car does have more style and presence than the Merc S Class or the BMW 7 series.
