The XF is a rear-wheel-drive executive car that was manufactured by Jaguar Cars at their Castle Bromwich assembly plant in Birmingham and was a replacement for the aging S-Type. Having been designed by Jaguar’s design director Ian Callum, the car was launched at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, with deliveries to customers commencing in March 2008. The XF was launched with a variety of trims called, depending on country, 'SE', 'Luxury', 'Premium Luxury', 'Portfolio', 'SV8' (or 'Supercharged') and 'R'. For the UK market, company car-friendly 'Executive Edition' and 'SE Business' models with lower tuned versions of the 3.0 litre and 2.2 litre diesel engines respectively were available. The interior included air conditioning vents which are flush fitting in the dash, rotating open once the engine is started, and a rotating gearshift dial, marketed as Jaguar Drive Selector, which automatically elevates from the centre console. Another departure from the traditional Jaguar cabin ambiance is the use of pale-blue backlighting to the instruments, switchgear, and around major control panels. The XF has no cloth interior option, with all trim levels featuring leathers, wood veneers are available along with aluminium, carbon fibre and piano black lacquer trims.
Originally registered on 15th October 2013, this XF is a very well equipped example being the ‘Premium Luxury’ model. As a Sportbrake edition, there is ample room and oceans of flexibility with this Jaguar. It will drive like a sedate saloon car but has the capacity to be a comfortable long tourer, ideal for trips abroad or enjoying the beauty of the British countryside. Finished in the delightful colour combination of light metallic blue with cream interior, this one owner Jaguar has been well maintained with six stamps in the service book. A superb car to drive with great ergonomics, this XF is supplied with a V5C registration book and a current MoT test certificate valid until 16th August 2021. A superb practical car for a relatively modest outlay.
