A very appealing variant of the XJ has just been released in Europe. It's a lightweight, sporty XJ with 6-cylinder engine. (There are no plans to bring it here due to the threat it would present to the S-Type.)

The only bad news is that it's a V6, which is sort of obscene for a Jaguar, since they make the finest inline 6 in the industry and it would have fit into this car easily.

(Imagine the previous-eneration supercharged inline 6 in a lighweight aluminum body with sporty suspension. In such a package, aluminum would make sense for the XJ!)

Anyway, I've posted the link to Automobile Magazine's overview.
