Spy Shots: Production 2008 Jaguar XF - no camo!



The 2009 Jaguar XF has been caught completely uncovered and without camouflage for the first time. While only visible from behind and a rear 3/4 view, we feel confident in saying the production XF will be remarkably close to the C-XF Concept on which it's based.

There are differences, of course. The fender vent behind the front wheels is taller and thinner, shaped more like the one on the XK than the concept. The chunky five-spoke wheels are different from the seven-spoke chrome jobs on the concept, and the rear taillights and exhaust tips have been toned down. But still, the car retains its ineffable gorgeousness, as well as the concept's leaping cat badge positioned right between the taillights.

There are certainly high hopes for the XF, and one could argue that the fate of Jaguar itself, regardless of whether or when it's sold, rests on its sculpted shoulders of sheet metal. Our main concern is that despite its sexiness, the XF will be using much of the mechanicals found underneath the current S-Type's skin. That car has never been known for its driving dynamics or choice of powertrains, so can Jaguar tweak it enough to make the XF feel new?

Dam fine. Too bad they may no longer be under the Ford umberella.

Selling Jag now reminds me of everytime I schedule a haircut....I swear I am having my best hair day ever on that day

Ford should show this car already. It would probably get a better price, or at least more interest . . . .
