The Jaguar S-Type was one of the best luxury vehicles in the world at the time. But Jaguar didn't want to stop there and wanted to create something even better so they replaced the S-Type with the Jaguar XF, a 4-door executive car that's easily one of the best vehicles from the Jaguar cars to date. Known back then as the X250, the Jaguar XF was developed at their Whitley design and development headquarters in Coventry and was then built in Castle Bromwich, Birmingham in time for the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show. It was a huge leap from the Jaguar S-Type but it still retains the classic Jaguar look and feel in the way that it was designed.
Standard Jaguar XF parts included a choice between powerful V6 and V8 engines, 6-speed or 8-speed automatic transmission systems, and a bevy of luxurious interior and exterior accessories. The Jaguar XF has some pretty cool features too such as flush-fitting air conditioning vents that rotate open once you start the engine and a rotating gearshift called the JaguarDrive Selector, which rises out of the centre console. These high-tech additions clearly set it apart from other luxury vehicles and would probably become standard gear for future Jaguar models as well.
Due to its popularity, various Jaguar XF models have been made, each with its own special set of features and style. A supercharged version of the XF was introduced back in 2009 sporting a 5.0-liter engine, making it one of the most powerful versions of the XF. There's even an XF that was made specifically for the UK police department and was fitted with light bars and an upgraded diesel engine. Finally, the latest 2012 model of the XF was designed to directly compete with other luxury brands and is expected to be the best version of the XF to date.
