It's about time!!!
Cindy Ngo Jan 11, 2013
That look's better then the xf and xfr
Sam Biggin Dec 02, 2012
This is mental!
Matt Piccolo Nov 29, 2012
Sorry but this is way nicer than any Holden
Car Buzzer Nov 29, 2012
Yes Lou, totally agree. From the mirrors back it is a Holden SS - not necessarily a bad thing though but for us Australians I suppose it looks a bit less special than the equivalent rivals
Lou Guerrero Nov 28, 2012
Looks like a Holden now. Not very tasteful
Terrance Parker Nov 28, 2012
This is one of those cars that the pictures don't do it justice. I'm sure when I start seeing these rolling around Miami they will look amazing!!
Shannon Sims Nov 28, 2012
My point is for the price there isn't much exclusivity to the exterior. If you get over the badge you will realize you've seen similar body lines. For the price tag I wouldn't want to be mistaken for a EVO X Or any other car with this profile...
Jacob Burford Nov 28, 2012
The wing is a $3,500 option! Go configure one on jaguar's website and you'll see that it's an option!
Timothy Hooker Nov 28, 2012
and not fat....is the point I'm making for those who will be confused
Timothy Hooker Nov 28, 2012
saying this is lean would be like saying Roseanne Bar is Curvy..js
Mike Bakhsheshi Nov 28, 2012
It's missing something... Color and front fascia look sick but the spoiler reminds me of a Daytona dodge charger.
James Kay Nov 28, 2012
And the XF, which is the XFR-S base model has been out for a few years
James Kay Nov 28, 2012
I understand but it's called prestige
David Parenti Nov 28, 2012
@james, the ford was out before the jag.
James Kay Nov 28, 2012
You don't say that the jag looks like a ford, you say that the ford looks like the jag. And yes get rid of the spoiler, it spoils it
Cody Gillard Nov 28, 2012
Looks terrific but i wouldnt own a jag if someone gave it to me
Tyler Tarbox Nov 28, 2012
If you think this thing looks like an EVO X then wow....
Matt Piccolo Nov 28, 2012
Spoiler is questionable, is need to see a rear pic, but other wise? Damn jag did u get this thing right!
William Downs Nov 28, 2012
Shannon u need to stop doing obscene amounts of drugs, this looks nothing like any ego, and Timothy how in the world does this car look bloated, car looks lean and powerful
Timothy Hooker Nov 28, 2012
I think it looks terrible. color is wrong..the thing mentioned 100 times is wrong...looks bloated and cheap. that's not saying that jaguar isn't prone to put out some killer cars though
Liam Day Nov 28, 2012
Its amazing I love it
Shannon Sims Nov 28, 2012
This looks SO STUPID!! Looks like a damn 45k EVO 10!!! Yuck
Zaire Wilkins Nov 28, 2012
nissan wants there spoiler back
Adam Thomson Nov 28, 2012
Would buy it directly
Jacob Shumway Nov 28, 2012
Spoiler looks great. Adds the sporty touch they were going for. If classy is wanted, I'm sure the XF supercharged will suffice.
Derrick McCarthy Nov 28, 2012
It was said already, take off the spoiler and its just about perfect.
Stephen Ishard Nov 28, 2012
Truly gorgeous
David Parenti Nov 28, 2012
This is about as close as you'll get to a ford falcon in the states.
Mohammed Shamma Nov 28, 2012
This colour makes it look sporty and aggressive and the spoilers fits it hundred percent but id prefer a classy black jaguar without the spoiler
Jommel Marcella Nov 28, 2012
Looks awesome and fun to drive.
Tyler Tarbox Nov 28, 2012
Yeah I see ford falcon in this as well as Pontiac g8
Ryan Sansossio Nov 28, 2012
Jaguar? Looks like a ford falcon with a new hood to me
Aaron Sparks Nov 28, 2012
I think we are almost all in agreement that the spoiler is a bit much. Everything else looks great though.
Tyler Tarbox Nov 28, 2012
Looks pretty good. Kinda reminds me of the Pontiac G8 GT
Nelson Alexander Nov 28, 2012
Don't like the spoiler but its a must have. Downforce
Edmond Gebara Nov 28, 2012
Spoiler has absolutely no place on this gorgeous machine
David Parenti Nov 28, 2012
It really reminds me of the FPV Ford Falcon.
David Parenti Nov 28, 2012
Oh yes
David Gray Nov 28, 2012
Boyd is right, spoiler doesn't look good
Jacob Burford Nov 28, 2012
Looks amazing! Love the XFR and this takes it to another level!
Patrick Schalk Nov 28, 2012
I agree Boyd. This car is too classy to have that type of spoiler on it
Boyd Boudreaux Nov 28, 2012
Remove spoiler and it's perfect
Seth McCormick Nov 28, 2012
It looks awesome
Justin Routh Nov 28, 2012
I love it

Perfect car
Tyler Tarbox Nov 29, 2012
Agree completely with Erich. Anyone who can afford a car like this or an M5 or CTS-V is going to want the best car. So every little detail matters
Miko Reginella Nov 28, 2012
@kyle its commenters...not commentators...?
Cian Mac Gearailt Nov 28, 2012
Finally a car to challenge the m5
Jörgen Nilsson Nov 28, 2012
I think most of the commenators can afford a car that does 0-60...
Kyle Malcomson Nov 28, 2012
None of the commentators could afford a car that will do 60 mph so jag won listen to you plus they are British so they can build cars that are luxurious
Jörgen Nilsson Nov 28, 2012
But value isn't the same as "time to get the car from zero to 62". Not at all. If you think it is your not even close to being a Jag customer.
John Augustus Nov 28, 2012
If 0.4s stops you from buying a car then you're an Rtard. FFS 4.4s is damn quick. Ppl on the Internet have bloody high expectations:p
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Nov 28, 2012
Well, look at the CTS-V!
Tyler Tarbox Nov 28, 2012
Justin, uh that's kind of the entire point of super sedans.
Justin Routh Nov 28, 2012
Its got a whole lot more weight to move, plus why do you need to get to 60 under 4 seconds in a luxury sedan?
Mohammed Shamma Nov 28, 2012
I hate it when a car with that much of power cant sprint from 0 to 62 in like 4 seconds although its sedan not a sport car i know but thats annoying!
Jay Kolvenbag Nov 28, 2012
300 km/h, in a sedan
Sam Hansen Nov 28, 2012
Bless them

Tyler Tarbox Nov 29, 2012
Erich, first of all, what up with William shatner? And second of all, the CTS-V handles just as good as the Panamera Turbo which costs about $50K more
Tyler Tarbox Nov 29, 2012
@Zaire. Europeans challenge US well, but Japan? Hell no
Zaire Wilkins Nov 28, 2012
american muscle is good but the japs and europeans can do it better
Aaron Crisp Nov 28, 2012
@John You are such an idiot.
Justin Routh Nov 28, 2012
@Erich id guess it would handle just about as good. Id take the cts-v with the magnetic suspension over the panamera any day
David Parenti Nov 28, 2012
That seems a little biased.
John Augustus Nov 28, 2012
I doubt many CTS-Vs will be sold in Europe. Why? Because in Europe, American cars have a poor reputation for build quality, poor materials(LOADS of plastic, fudging performance figures and handling like shit. The M5 shits on that car.Lol no offence:p
Aaron Crisp Nov 28, 2012
But no way I'd get the Porsche, way too much money. Great performance but I don't think I could justify the price.. Plus it is just but ugly compared to all the others.
Aaron Crisp Nov 28, 2012
I think they're all great machines, for the money I'd get a CTS-V, M5 is killer though. I've always had a special place in my heart for British cars. But realistically all I would buy (afford) in the performance sedan market is a Charger SRT8 or G8.
David Parenti Nov 28, 2012
@tyler, I'm with you on that one. I'd rather have a big supercharged American V8 under the hood that'll spank fine European machines all day. The CTSV also looks pretty good. And a lot of options are standard. You really get what you pay for.
Tyler Tarbox Nov 28, 2012
Panamera Turbo S is super fast but it's extremely ugly and costs about $100K more. Modify a CTS-V a little bit and it will be just as quick if not quicker and definitely handles better
Jacob Burford Nov 28, 2012
A Panamera Turbo S with options is also more than 200k and while it's quick, this jag and other sedans that cost half as much are nearly as quick and are much better looking!
William Downs Nov 28, 2012
I agree that cars fast as shit, but skid pad ratings doesn't equate to good handling.. I haven't read anything talking about the panamera being good in the corners, but being a Porsche I wouldn't be really suprised
David Parenti Nov 28, 2012
I'm going to go with the M5 being the performance sedan benchmark, since it has been for years. The Panamera S Turbo just seemed to go past the benchmark? But isn't that the point? Maybe it set a new standard.
William Downs Nov 28, 2012
Are u suggesting the panamera is the benchmark for a performance sedan?
Tyler Tarbox Nov 28, 2012
Jacob that's a really good point. The CTS-V is the same way
Tyler Tarbox Nov 28, 2012
And the CTS-V is 4 flat
Jacob Burford Nov 28, 2012
In Jaguar's defense for pricing, they always give everything but Cruise Control Standard. The Germans on the other hand always charge a lot in options.
Tyler Tarbox Nov 28, 2012
I know they do. I'm saying that since it costs so much more it needs to be faster
Walker Carroll Nov 28, 2012
Tyler. Both of those cars have 4 second plus 0-60
Tyler Tarbox Nov 28, 2012
Wow for $100,000 it needs to do 0-60 in under 4 seconds and has to be on par with the CTS-V and M5 around the track.
Dan Anton Nov 28, 2012
I think he's just going off the basis that the M5 is just the benchmark so it's always good. I've driven the new M5 and this jag will have some serious work ahead of it.
William Downs Nov 28, 2012
How do u know Sam, have u driven this new car, or u just saying that cause its a BMW and u assume
Sam Oglesby Nov 28, 2012
The m5 will still be better to drive it looks nowhere near as good looking
Ben Koch Nov 28, 2012
$99,000 ..... because a $100,000 is a ridiculous number
Edward Galligan Aug 26, 2013
A folding spoiler would be the better choice this makes it look like its copying an evo
Clay Williams Nov 30, 2012
I'm not saying that spoilers are useless in lower performance cars but spoilers of this size are definitely unnecessary. A simple duck tail would service just fine, in my opinion.
William Downs Nov 30, 2012
You should really quit while your ahead cause your really starting to sound extremely ignorant and very lacking in knowledge, I'm pretty sure all those company know way more then you'll ever know about getting the best performance out of a car they built
William Downs Nov 30, 2012
So your saying the evo, sti, skyline, 3000gt, supra and many other have minimal performance... how do u know this spoiler is unnecessary, did u go wind tunnel testing with this car, have u ever built a performance car, how do u know if this car needs it or not? U just assuming because u don't like it
Clay Williams Nov 30, 2012
It's true that real performance company's use spoilers but that's because the NEED it, unlike compact Japanese sedans with minimal performance. Jag may have some real performance but a spoiler this size is unnecessary and childish.
William Downs Nov 30, 2012
I'm pretty sure those 3 companies know a lot more about making a car then u ever will considering there making them and your just talking about them, no need to insult other companies cause jag got serious about performance and learned something useful
William Downs Nov 30, 2012
On a normal jag yes but u seem to forget the fact that this is a sports sedan not a normal jag, and there are plenty other companies that use spoilers not for looks but for there intended purpose, Porsche and Lamborghini come to mind
Clay Williams Nov 30, 2012
Exactly Subaru, Nissan, and Mitsubishi (who have no need for a spoiler). All affordable Japanese company's who make cars for people in the 20s. This is Jaguar a classy expensive company that can't just slap silly spoiler on there cars for no reason.
Car Buzzer Nov 30, 2012
Yes but this spoiler only goes up at 80mph I think
William Downs Nov 30, 2012
Wtf clay? That was a retarded statement so Nissan, mitsubishi, Subaru and many other all put spoilers on there cars just to make it look fast? Thought the reason for a spoiler was to create down force.. hmmm had it wrong all along
Clay Williams Nov 29, 2012
Jag- you are an exclusive British niche brand not a Japanese economy brand that slaps spoilers on everything to make it look faster... LOOSE THE SPOILER!
David Parenti Nov 29, 2012
@ Shelby. Two more exhaust pipes would add another 100hp ya see. But you have to constantly change those muffler bearings.
Shelby Cassandra Nov 28, 2012
2 more exhaust pipes? I don't think you understand exhausts.
Lou Guerrero Nov 28, 2012
Gotta say, that wing looks ridiculous. Seriously Jaguar?
Chris Crispie Picken Nov 28, 2012
I love that spoiler!!!
Car Buzzer Nov 28, 2012
I think a lip spoiler would look better, maybe 2 more exhaust pipes too
Joe Talerico Nov 28, 2012
@Brandon; Nope, not kidding.
Matthew Crighton Nov 28, 2012
The wing looks much better from this angle. But I might still remove it if I bought one
Jacob Burford Nov 28, 2012
Jaguar has there configuration for this car up already and the spoiler is a $3,500 option! =) ! Go check it out!
Cian Mac Gearailt Nov 28, 2012
Think i would remove the wing if i bought one
Lou Guerrero Nov 28, 2012
More stupid**
David Parenti Nov 28, 2012
Nice Kyle, very punctual. I'm sorry, punctuation is what you're missing.
Zachary Maurer Nov 28, 2012
Kyle, if you have to ask than you are stupider then us.
Shelby Cassandra Nov 28, 2012
@Kyle. I'm still smarter than you are. Lol.
Cody Gillard Nov 28, 2012
Looks sweet
Joe Talerico Nov 28, 2012
Rally type wing on this car looks idiotic! Big thumbs down.
Matt Piccolo Nov 28, 2012
I'm actually loving the spoiler, in the first pic, I wasn't sure, but I think it looks great
Michael Riley Nov 28, 2012
Replace the spoiler with a carbon fiber lip spoiler and it'd look nicer :)
Jacob Burford Nov 28, 2012
I'm not a fan of the spoiler, but it's not as bad as I thought it would be! Everything else about the car is great!
Alex Santaspirt Nov 28, 2012
I'd take off the spoiler
Max Jabaay Nov 28, 2012
It Looks like it's from a cobalt SS/Sc
Sam Oglesby Nov 28, 2012
Maybe but a smaller one would just look stupid
Rafael Ridwan Nov 28, 2012
Evo lancer jaguar edition.
Mohammed Suhail Jamil Nov 28, 2012
Jaguar took the rear spoiler directly off a Nissan GTR!! Lol Doesn't look nice at all. A more subtle lip would have been better not this hideous thing..,,
Seth McCormick Nov 28, 2012
Not crazy about that spoiler but damn that's a beautiful car.
Justin McLeod Nov 28, 2012
Gorgeous rear end :D
Matthew Mckernan Nov 28, 2012
I'm not sure if I like the spoiler, but besides that, this car is awesome.
Cindy Ngo Jan 11, 2013
The bumper look's cool
Cody Gillard Nov 28, 2012
Just the headlights i want just the headlights as lamps
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Nov 28, 2012
Nice! Stupid Ipad
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Nov 28, 2012
Lice
Cindy Ngo Jan 11, 2013
It's a drift car?
Janak Solanki Nov 28, 2012
This shot alone is enough to sell the car.
Miko Reginella Nov 28, 2012
Except the spoiler...looks like they took it off an sti
Matt Piccolo Nov 28, 2012
Very sexy! Lovin every bit of this
Logan Delony Nov 28, 2012
The left half kind of does
Jommel Marcella Nov 28, 2012
Who else thinks that this pic looks like its from a game.
Janak Solanki Nov 28, 2012
Awesome shot!
Nick Schnee Nov 28, 2012
Epic! Love it!
Terrance Parker Nov 28, 2012
Beautiful car
Cody Gillard Nov 28, 2012
Thumbs going through the roof right now jaw is somewhere in china
Edmond Gebara Nov 28, 2012
Incredible front end
Janak Solanki Nov 28, 2012
Approved
Janak Solanki Nov 28, 2012
Looks raunchy. I love it
Terrance Parker Nov 28, 2012
Wow look at the size of the intakes!!
Cody Gillard Nov 28, 2012
Like the rims a lot
Jake Judges Nov 28, 2012
Love the new grill
Jacob Burford Nov 28, 2012
Fav Sedan!
Carlton Salmon Nov 28, 2012
Love the colour, somewhere between Bugatti Blue and Ford Grabber Blue.
Claudio Komba Nov 30, 2012
Lovely place to be in.
Matt Piccolo Nov 28, 2012
I must say I was expecting more... But I think I could let it go considering how amazing the rest of the car is!
James Kay Nov 28, 2012
The gearbox standard
James Kay Nov 28, 2012
I thing it would be better if it was standard
Justin Routh Nov 28, 2012
Im sure its better in person but the last pics i saw of the M5's interior it blew this away
Mohammed Shamma Nov 28, 2012
The seas are cool i thinking im seeing carbon fibre in it? And love the blue stiching
Jacob Burford Nov 28, 2012
I love the XF interior. Simple, yet luxurious!
Carlton Salmon Nov 28, 2012
I was hoping the interior would look as sporting as the exterior, but nonetheless this is tastefully done.
William Downs Nov 28, 2012
The out side is so crazy looking they had to give it some class, its still a jaguar
Sam Oglesby Nov 28, 2012
Looks the same as the standard xf and its such a nice place to be
Patrick Schalk Nov 28, 2012
Not gonna lie, I think this looks terrible.
Janak Solanki Nov 28, 2012
I don't think it's as nice as an M5 interior
