China’s patent bureau has leaked again, showing drawings of a patent application for a stretched Jaguar XJ with a raised roof. It seems to be extended by at least a meter. The vehicle is completely redesigned from the B-pillar on, with the roof gradually raising and most of the extension happening behind the C-pillar.

We don’t know whether the patent has been applied by Jaguar or another company, like Carat for example. There was a stretched and heightened XJ before, made by Wilcox Lmousines of England, but their new XJ has six doors and the C-pillar is unchanged, so its not them.

Completely new D-pillar there. A vehicle like this will definitely find buyers in China, where Big is still Better, no matter for how much.

    The idea to stretch a new Jaguar XJ isn’t new. The previous models of Jaguar have been made by company Jankel in UK in the past. The new Jaguar XJ never been stretched such Presidential or Royal limousine.
    Such design of the stretched version with the raised roof looks a little bit strange from the body proportion point of view.
    We can offer other more professionally developed design with a different stretched versions including raised roof.
    Please,do not hesitate and contact us directly.

    Beautiful!

    That is just the way royal family (and pope) need their limousine – at work they need to be seen therefor a “glass bobble”.

    I love commercial glass limousines – just so sad that the americans have stopped that kind of stretching with their new MKT and XTS…
