2008 Jaguar XF REVEALED

I think it looks GREAT. I would not mind driving the 420hp model

Hmmm. That looks like a Hofmeister kink on the rear wind'oh.

Other than the front (the bottom pic look like it would induce projectile vomiting), it's a nice 'coupe-ish' looking saloon.

I 99% like .05% hate .05% love

What they (Jaguar) should have built and had in N/A showrooms 5 years ago.

I dunno...at a glance, I'd think I was looking at a Chrysler Sebring hardtop.

The first time I saw this photo I thought "Buick" from the front, Lexus GS back from there.

But thinking "Buick" is bad.

I from the a-pillar forward this car is a disaster. The rump is great. Unfortunately, one has to look at the face, on occasion...

Blech

Did you notice that the XF is the latest car to recognize that a big shift lever in the center console is obsolete and a waste of space?

This is no XK, that's for sure.

I really like that center console--very nice looking.

The exterior is pretty good, though the front could be better. But the interior is boring and ugly all at the same time.
