SPYSHOTS: Jaguar XF L prototype caught testing

Spy-Shots of Cars

Been pining for a Jaguar XF with a little bit more space in the rear? If so, then you’re in luck – a prototype of the Jaguar XF L (long-wheelbase) has been captured by our European spy photographers undergoing testing at the famed Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit in Germany.

As it is, the Jaguar XF L will join its big brother, the Jaguar XJ L, as part of the British carmaker’s lineup of elongated luxury offerings that offer roomier rear cabins – said model is expected to debut at the start of next year at the earliest. The Jaguar XF L will most likely go on sale in China where it will compete against the likes of the Audi A6 L, BMW’s 5 Series LWB models and whatnot.

The demand for chauffeur-driven mid-sized sedans in said country is pretty high so one can most definitely understand Jaguar’s intentions to grab a slice of the cake. Looks wise, there’s nothing much to differ the LWB variant over the regular second-gen Jaguar XF save for the extended rear door.

With the Jaguar XJ L offering about five inches worth of additional length over the regular model, an increase of the same scale would result in a Jaguar XF that could measure in at just under 5,080 mm lengthwise. Underneath, the Jaguar XF L features the same aluminium modular architecture first seen on the Jaguar XE.

As for engine options, expect the same range of Ingenium mills to carry over. The list should include the 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbodiesel engines as well as the biturbo 3.0 litre V6 mill. Petrol options, on the hand, should include the 3.0 litre supercharged V6 engine with a maximum output of 380 PS and 450 Nm of torque.

    when the first gen xf came out it was a revelation inside and out…..

    the new one is just a bigger xe…..

    and the lack of design flair on the outside makes it look like design study clay model…

    and the rear looks like an old audi
