Although punching buttons to change gears is something that's been around for decades, these newest spy pics from KGP confirm that the new Jaguar XF and XK are likely to receive a setup reminiscent of the console found on the C-XF concept that debuted in Detroit.

The flat panel design, partially concealed by the test driver's hand, reveals a large red ignition button placed atop letters displaying the traditional "PRND." The image doesn't reveal how gear selection will be made, but if it's anything like the design shown on the concept (above), it's going to be way cooler than the Powerflite trannies of yesteryear.
