Exclamation New Jaguar XF Info...

Over at carspyshots.net, someone received the press pack with 16 pages including full official pics! I'll upload them tomorrow as soon as the person uploads them. However, I'll paste what he said so far and I told him make a crappy sketch for us today!

"well im sorry im not much of a car nut soill try to explain the best i can
it is true tot he c-xf concnet exacept rhe hed lamps are more convential they are just as you see on the latest chops of the car the grille it big and round and dominates the front giving it a tough look and the vents under the pate look just like a bentley continental gts. the rear door looks small to the rest of the car but the interior is amazin the rea leg room is great and the dash is very futuristic.

as i said im not very gud at expalining so any more questions feel free to ask!

but sumone messaged me askin about it in comparison to a mercedes cls all i can say to tht is

merecedes what?? no one will even think twice of the cls when u see the xf

this is the car tht is goin to luanch jaguar!!"

That's his sketch, not much but if anyone wants to see the XF that badly, it'll do till tomorrow! Also, he has shown quite a lot of detail, headlights are just as I expected and I see strong hints of the RD6 concept!

Edit: he will upload a video from the DVD he got in the press pack tomorrow too!

I LOVE the rear. You can definitely see some Aston influence in the tail light design...deff not a bad thing. The wheels are...okay...

Jeremy Clarkson once said if the XF looks anything like the concept he will have to eat his shoe. I think he better start cooking it.

DEF Aston hints in the design, makes the Rapide seem pointless almost. This will be so much cheaper than the Rapide, even the R version. I dont really like the Rapide anyway. Just looks like a DB9 with 2 more doors. Hardly, the most original design...anyway, I'll have more pics for you guys later. Oh yeah, and a video

Sorry I dont have any pics or the video! the guy actually said his dad wouldnt let him upload them since it might affect his order of the new XF. I cant believe it! however, I've got both eyes open and as soon as I get more I'll post it!

Wait, there's a pic of the headlight uncovered. I'll post it. It doesnt look so good in isolation but maybe it'll look better when we see the front of the car in full...

I'm trying my best bro. I'll tell you what happened...

First, I told you about the guy who would upload scans of the brochure, but then he pulled out because his dad didnt want it to affect his order of the XF, yeah...right...

Now a Jaguar employee gave us a scan of the new headlight and said he could show us a lot more if Leftlanenews removed his scan from their website Anyway, I'm tryng to convince him to give us more.

Meanwhile here's a quick chop I made. The headlights dont look so good on the concept body because of the chrome details and huge grille etc. But I'm sure it'll look great when completed!

I'll keep you guys updated!

I believe this might be the first production shot people:



Looks great in my opinion, I'll confirm it later if I hear anything. I know that the headlight I posted from the brochure looks different, I dont understand why. But all I can say is that this pic I am posting matches the spypics and is infact what I thought the headlights would look like!

I'll update later if theres anything else...

People, I think it IS the real deal. According to Leftlanenews, Jaguar North America told them to remove the image from their website!
