Click above for a gallery of the Loder1899 Jaguar XF.

Unlikely the atrocity that Galpin performed on the new Jaguar XF, the German tuners at Loder1899 recognized the cat's strong points and built a set of tasteful mods around it. The package from Loder comes equipped with a new front bumper, rear diffuser and trunk lid wing, a suspension setup that lowers the XF by 35mm and a choice of either 20- or 21-inch rollers. Across the pond, buyers can opt for the 2.7-liter V6 diesel, so Loder has employed a few tweaks on the oilburner to increase output to 249 hp (from 207) and torque to 385 lb.-ft. All that kit will cost you a cool 8,000 euro in Germany, not including assembly and painting. Hit the jump for the full press release.

Loder1899 makes the Jaguar XF purr

The Indian Siam cat is a beautiful and graceful cat that attracts attention by means of her typical, loud voice. Her elegant body language renders her walk smooth and lofty. Sometimes the Siam cat is described as being arrogant and inapproachable. If this is really the case, is in the eye of the beholder. Actually she is the very opposite – a playful kitten that only wants to be entertained.

More elegance and horsepower for the Bavarian kitten
The Jaguar XF has a very vivacious temperament as well and thus has received the ideal toys from Loder1899. The body styling kit, consisting of an elegant front spoiler, an extravagant rear spoiler and a fancy rear apron spoiler, provides the Jaguar with the grace and aerodynamic body line of an athletic race cat. Thanks to the Loder1899 lowering kit (-35mm), the noble limousine appears optically smarter and faster. The sporty motor management enables a performance increase from 207 to 249 hp. Hence, the Jaguar is able to shake off other fast cats easily. Loder1899 equips the Jaguar with classical, selected wheel/tire combinations, which are the cat's perfect paw-wear.

All further information and any enquries will be gladly dealt with by our competent experts on the first fair day at the Loder1899/Vredestein booth, (A1-304). Or contact Loder1899 directly at www.loder1899.de.

      Wow.. that looks crap.
      Is any brand immune to the vicious attacks of the ricer community these days?

      "Loder1899 builds off Jaguar XF's strong points..."

      ...but not the legendary "drops in residual value like a rock."

      Personally, I think they've ruined it.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Really?...by adding a snow plow and wheels from the tire rack? This is building off the strong points?

      Don't know about the looks of this one - I don't see any visual improvements, except for the massive out-of-place rims.

      Sadly, XF was let down by the company when it was transformed from an edgy and beautiful concept into boring Hyundai look alike.

      I think there was a tuner that greatly improved the looks of it, with the exception of the headlights (apparently, not much can be done about fixing them).

      Love the Hyundai Sonata front end. So distinctive.

      Seriously, what the hell are you AutoBloggers smoking. Damon this `tuning` is a joke. Totally agree with MJK that cheap looking Hasbro looking wheels and a adding a front lip and imitation rear diffuser bring this already average design into the negative numbers on the rating scale. All this car needed was the headlamps and grill of the concept car (something that could have easily been done).

      I'll take mine in black with the factory front bumper.

      Heck, for those rims alone it's cool.

      The one pic makes it look like a Buick Lucerne with the Monte Carlo headlight package.
