OFFICIAL! - Jaguar reveals the new XJ with the help of Jay Leno

Just as expected, Jaguar has called Jay Leno, a fun guy and a car connoisseur, to present its new flagship, the 2010 XJ. The presentation took place in London, at the Saatchi Gallery and the car represents a real breakthrough in design for Jaguar.

The new XJ is 5.12 m long, 1.90 m wide, 1.46 m tall and bears a wheelbase of 3.03 m. In the regular sized body. When we get to the long wheelbase version, these specs change to 5.25 m long and a wheelbase of 3.16 m. The other dimensions are just the same. Luggage compartment hold up to 520 l. As expected, this proves the all-aluminium platform is still the same one used by the previous XJ, called X351.

Even though aluminium helps the car to be lighter than its competitors by 150 kg, the XJ is still heavy. Its weight goes from 1,755 kg, for the naturally aspirated version, to 1,915 kg, for the supercharged V8 version.

The new Jag, said to be a stretched version of XF (and is it bad at all?), will have four engine options, one diesel and three petrol units. The diesel powerplant will be a 3-litre V6 that produces 275 bhp at 4,000 rpm and 600 Nm at 2,000 rpm. The direct injection petrol units will be a naturally aspirated 5-litre V8 and two supercharged powerplants, one producing 470 bhp at 6,000 rpm and 575 Nm from 2,500 rpm to 5,500 rpm and the other generating 510 bhp from 6,000 rpm to 6,500 rpm and 625 Nm from 2,500 rpm to 5,500 rpm. All versions come with a six-speed automatic transmission with manual gear changes with throttles behind the wheel.

An interesting information about the car: it has no regular clusters, but a screen that reproduces them and changes according to the way the car is driven. Besides being much cheaper than the traditional clusters, this dashboard also causes a high tech effect. If the car proves to be reliable enough, this is going to be a trendsetter. Time will tell.

LEAKED! - Check the new Jaguar XJ before its official introduction

The official presentation of the 2010 Jaguar XJ will only happen tomorrow, but has managed to obtain its first pictures beforehand and published it right away. Even because we will get to see the car with no watermarks very soon, presented by car-guy Jay Leno in London.

The car will keep the current all-aluminium platform, renamed as X351, but its looks have radically changed. They are very similar to the gorgeous XF with a touch of Mercedes-Benz CLS, a car that Ian Callum admires a lot.

Although technical specs will only be released tomorrow, has already revealed the car will have at least two engine options: a supercharged V8 producing 510 bhp and a 3-litre V6 diesel generating 271 bhp and 600 Nm. What a fantastic ride it promises to be...

SCOOP! - Peugeot 308 Sedan makes its first appearance in China

Although Europe already counts on Peugeot 308 for the past two years, the Old World is still about to see news of this car family, even though some of them may not reach their shores. And it is a pity, once the forthcoming 308 Sedan seems to be one of the most beautiful hatchback-based sedans the French company has ever managed to produce. Take a look at it below and thank the guys from, in China, for it.

Although it is based on 308, the new sedan takes inspiration from Peugeot 407. With a wheelbase of 2.61 m, the new saloon is sure to have a huge luggage compartment, considering the hatchback can carry up to 430 l.

Engines must be the same used by 308 in China, where it will be presented for the first time. In the beginning of next year it will also be produced in El Palomar, in Argentina, from where it will be exported to other markets, such as the entire Latin America, as well as some East European countries. Peugeot may even consider selling it in more traditional markets if its looks really are as promising as the disguised cars seem to anticipate. In Argentina, the car will be built with petrol and flexible fuel 1.6-litre and 2-litre engines.


LEAKED! - Alfa Romeo Milano is fully presented in the internet

Were you curious to have a look at Alfa Romeo 147 replacement, once called 149 and now confirmed to be the new Milano? You won't have to wait any longer thanks to Gianmario Deriu, which has placed pictures of the new car in Facebook. Check them below.

Built over the same platform used by Fiat Bravo and Lancia Delta, called C-Evo, the car was supposed to appear in the second half of 2009, but its presentation is taking a lot more to happen. When something exceeds the time it should take, it naturally finds a way to reveal itself. We are sure official pictures of the car will be released very soon, even though technical specs may be reserved for the official presentation only, expected to take place at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show.
