The lighter and meaner new Jaguar XF

On the year of its 80th anniversary, Jaguar has stepped up its game and released the all new XF range in a bid to truly make this the ‘year of the cat’!

The new Jaguar XF has achieved a drastic weight loss of 190 kgs, making it 80 kgs lighter than its nearest competitor. This has been possible thanks to its all new high-tech aluminium build, which has made it strong and safe yet ultra-lightweight. It also features an increase in torsional stiffness of up to 28 per cent. Jaguar recently showcased this leaner and more agile car with a dramatic tight-rope journey across two thin wires suspended 18 m above the waters of Canary Wharf in London. The 240 m drive was the world’s longest high-wire water crossing and sealed the new Jaguar XF’s lightweight credentials.

 

The new XF joins the Jaguar saloon car range between the XE and XJ model lines. Please view the slideshow for more information and pictures.
