THE ELUSIVE JAGUAR XJ has been a hot topic in the automotive world for a while now, but come July 9, we?ll finally see famed designer Ian Callum?s latest masterpiece.
Jaguar revealed the first official image ? a top-down view ? and video of the all-new XJ at the 2009 Shanghai Motor Show in April, but now, to whet our appetites, Jaguar has released a short video of Callum talking about the approach and the design philosophy behind the new XJ. Click through to check it out.
Callum describes the car as very modern ? itself a recent addition to the Jaguar design ethos ? seeing it as a well crafted 21st century Jaguar.
?It?s a very design-led car. The lines are beautiful, but we?ve reinterpreted it in a very different way. It?s right and correct for the 21st century, and that?s what it?s important. A Jaguar should be very beautiful, very clear in its intent, but very relevant for its time.?
