Jaguar has confirmed that it has already taken 55 orders for its new 2010 XJ sedan in the UK alone. Jaguar said that some of the units were sold at the launch in London last week and some orders were taken at dealerships from those who hadn’t seen the car in real.
“Some of the orders were from people at the Saatchi Gallery launch,” a Jaguar spokesman told Autocar, “but others came from people who had just seen pics on the internet. This rate of orders is the same as the XF and we are very pleased.”
The 2010 Jaguar XJ will go on sale in the United States in December with prices starting at $72,500 for the base 2010 XJ and $79,500 for the XJL with the naturally aspirated V8.
The 470-hp 2010 XJ Supercharged and the XJL Supercharged will be priced at $87,500 and $90,500, respectively. The range-topping 5.0L XJ and XJL Supersport will start at a $112,000 and $115,000, respectively.
