A patent filing in China has revealed a stretched Jaguar XJ model, though it’s unknown who filed it.

After rumors surfaced that the next-generation Jaguar XJ would get a different body style specifically for the Chinese market, the British automaker debunked that rumor. Perhaps someone else is taking matters into their own hands, building a stretched Jaguar XJ limo for the Chinese.

Unfortunately with no confirmation on who filed the patent, it’s not known if this is an aftermarket, third-party conversion, which is most likely. Based on the patent filings, the XJ has been redesigned from the B-pillar back, and the vehicle itself has been extended almost 3.3 feet.

Perhaps Jaguar will chime in on these patent filings, since the automaker has been making a reputation out of debunking rumors such as the F-Type coupe patent filings that were leaked earlier.
