AS part of the latest model year updates, Jaguar has launched Chequered Flag special editions of the XF saloon and XF Sportbrake, featuring unique exterior styling elements and interior enhancements.
On the outside, those changes include side vent badging and Gloss Black alloy wheels and a choice of three exterior colours; Yulong White, Santorini Black and Eiger Grey. Further design cues include a sport front bumper, Black Pack and body-coloured side sills.
There’s also a boot spoiler and 18-inch Chalice alloy wheels in gloss black finish, while inside, there’s R-Sport full leather seats, and Chequered Flag tread-plates, a Dark Hex aluminium instrument panel finish and specially-selected colour combinations.
A selection of the most popular optional features fitted to the XF are also standard on the special edition, including Navigation Pro with InControl Connect Pro, which includes a live traffic function which helps drivers avoid traffic jams for a more seamless journey.
Further features include the 12.3-inch interactive driver display and key-less entry. The Chequered Flag special edition is available with a range of Ingenium power plants, from the 132kW diesel through to the 184kW and 221kW petrol engines.
Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, said: “The XF Saloon and Sportbrake combine the elegance and exceptional performance which underline all Jaguars,” Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, said. “Both XF models feature beautiful silhouettes giving them a dynamic appearance perfectly suited to the Chequered Flag badge.”
