Spy Shots: Jaguar XK facelift spotted

Our elusive spy photographers have captured the first glimpse of the facelifted Jaguar XK coupe out testing near the automaker's development center in Coventry. This doesn't appear to be a major overhaul, with the exterior only changing minimally, including a new front fascia with revised headlamps, larger side sills and a very slightly touched-up rear fascia, including a small wing on this prototype. (We don't expect that to be commonplace on all XKs, as it's not exactly the most attractive element on the coupe.)
This may not be an all-new version of the XK, but our spies suggest that some changes might be on tap for what's underhood, mostly in an effort to keep the coupe fresh for a few more years. We don't take issue with the current range of naturally aspirated or supercharged 5.0-liter direct-injected V8 engines – both engines are relatively new, after all – but some dynamic tweaks would indeed keep the XK at the front of our minds for years to come.
