Jaguar has launched a high performance Police pursuit vehicle based on its award-winning XF Diesel S model. The first ever Police-spec XF is currently being evaluated by Police forces across Britain.
Geoff Cousins, UK Managing Director for Jaguar Cars, said: "Police forces are looking for vehicles that represent value for money, have good environmental credentials and deliver the power and performance required of a pursuit vehicle."
The Jaguar XF beats other contenders in this market with a fuel economy figure of 42mpg, class-leading residual values and an excellent emissions.
Police Officers driving pursuit vehicles demand a very high level of performance and handling, as well as safety and comfort. The Police specification Jaguar features the 275hp 3.0-litre Diesel S engine with its unique, parallel sequential turbocharger system. Delivering high torque throughout the entire rev range, improved throttle response and low emissions, the twin-turbos work sequentially to deliver unrivalled response and best-in-class torque that means the XF packs a huge punch at all engine speeds.
"We hope this amount of torque on tap and a 0-60mph time of 5.9 seconds will meet and exceed the exacting standards of any Police Officer driving this car."
