The full monty: Jaguar C-XF Concept
Earlier today, a couple pics were leaked onto this, our vast information super highway, of the Jaguar C-XF concept. A few sites picked up the press shots and then later removed them at the request of Jaguar. It seems that the folks at Inside Line figured that if one concept's secrecy was compromised, why not let another cat out of the bag.
The C-XF is widely regarded as the replacement of the S-type and utilizes the oh-so-en-vogue, four-door coupe design that was once solely occupied by the Merc CLS. A full analysis of the design elements employed on the concept, including tidbits from Ian Callum, the man behind the pen, can be read at IL.
Power will be provided by a supercharged, 4.2-liter V8, producing 420 HP and 368 lb.-ft. of torque and, when mated to a six-speed automatic, can supposedly propel the RWD concept to a top speed of 180 MPH.
The C-XF will debut in Detroit next month, but you can follow the 'read' link for more juicy morsels.
