Mike O'Driscoll, Managing Director of Jaguar Cars said: "We've started 2009 with the introduction of advanced new generation gasoline and diesel engines that set new benchmarks in terms of performance, economy and efficiency, including a new diesel for the XF that offers a marked improvement in CO2 and fuel economy. Our cars meet the challenges of the modern world and the needs of today's consumers - and they're also true to the Jaguar philosophy of creating beautiful fast cars."

A naturally aspirated 5.0 liter V8, producing 385hp, powers other V8 XF models.Distinguished by unique exterior and interior design features, the XFR includes revised bumpers and lower front air intakes, sill extensions, hood louvers and grilles, four tailpipes, a trunk-lid spoiler, unique seats and 20" wheels.The new generation of XK and XKR coupe and convertibles, with all-new V8 engines, deliver more power and performance with greater efficiency for 2010 Model Year. With interior enhancements, advanced lightweight aluminum body structure and a wider range of models, plus the new luxurious 'Portfolio' model, the new XK and XKR build on 60 years of legendary performance to deliver the best of everything Jaguar.
