Jaguar C-XF Concept

Jaguar C-XF ConceptJaguar is revolutionizing thier sedans like never before. They are pulling their desgins out of the rut and placing a new spin on the X-type like they have never don before. The concept will be dubbed the C-XF.

Interiors will use wood as both a structural and a decorative element. Jaguar cabins will be styled so as to emphasize their width, and technology will be discreet. The RD-6 and R-coupe concepts, as well as the new XK, follow this philosophy, but the C-XF is the first Jaguar sedan to do so.

Jaguar has announced that the S-type will be replaced in spring 2008 with a car called the XF, so the C-XF clearly points the way toward that production model. How close is the C-XF to the XF? “It’s that styling direction, but it’s not that car,” says Callum, adding that “it’s a less radical version of that shape.” If you compare the designs of the C-XF and the spy shots that have been taken of the XF you may be able to tell the difference.Jaguar C-XF Engine

The C-XF’s 114-inch wheelbase is virtually identical to the current S-type’s, and the concept is an inch longer overall. But the C-XF is significantly taller than an S-type and wider than an XJ. A supercharged, 420-hp, 4.2-liter V-8 mates to a six-speed manu-matic in the C-XF, but the production XF surely will be offered with a V-6 and Jag’s normally aspirated V-8 as well.

We will be able to get a closer look at the C-XF concept when Jaguar reveals it to us this fall, where we hope to see it at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Than we will truly tell how Jaguar is changing the look of things.
