The unveiling of the Jaguar C-XF caused quite a stir at the Detroit motor show in January and early impressions suggest that the showroom version of the car will be just as impressive.
Auto Express claims to have had access to "inside information", allowing it to construct an idea of what the new car will be like.
Based on the details the magazine has obtained, it claims that the XF will be "just as head-turning" as the striking concept car that was on show in America.
Actual images have also been gained by the magazine of a prototype of the new car being road-tested which, despite a disguise, show that it will sport a low nose with a square grille, twin-lamp headlights and wide twin tailpipes.
The XF is being designed as the replacement for the S-Type and it will carry over details such as the chrome-trimmed side air intakes and LED taillights.
All of Jaguar’s future cars will be modelled on the basic shape of the XF, in particular the front end, according to Auto Express.
Entry level versions of the car will be powered by a three-litre V6 or Jaguar’s 2.7-litre twin turbodiesel, while elsewhere in the range 3.6-litre diesel and 4.2-litre petrol V8 units will be available.
