Since Ford is trying to sell Jaguar and Land Rover, yesterday’s roll out of the first Jaguar XF model is being seen as a huge step for the company. The company needs to torque up interest and success of Jaguar if it hopes to find someone interested enough to buy out the company.
The XF that was first to come across the production line at the Castle Bromwich plant in the U.K will be donated to the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust collection where it will be proudly displayed along side other memorable Jaguar models.
After being the first to drive the new car, Jaguar founder Sir William Lyon’s grandson stated; â€œThe new XF is a car that truly represents the core values which have lain at the heart of this great brand since its foundation in 1922 and I am thrilled to have been asked here today to witness this historic event from the best seat in the house!â€
The Jaguar XF is a mid-size luxury car/sports sedan that will replace the S-Type in the Jaguar lineup. The production version debuted at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show and it is expected to reach market in March 2008.
