Wednesday 25 March 2015, 12:16 PM by

Jaguar has been inspired from James Bond that will reflect in the next generation XF saloon. The video streaming was updated online for car enthusiasts to make the most of it. Jaguar has already made the release of the 2016 XF in a spectacular manner in London. This event was organised with a high-wire drive over the water that was performed by Jim Dowdall, the British stuntman famous for working in Indiana Jones and James Bond franchises. This stunt was particularly performed to highlight the agile features of the new car, simultaneously also focussing on its lightweight nature.

2016 Jaguar XF

The new XF will feature a crisp exterior that has certain reflections of the design and appearance of the current model. The interiors of the car have been inspired from the XE. Additionally, the latest technological features and advancements have been incorporated in the new car. The model is inspired from XE’s iQ (Al) platform, which has more than 75 per cent aluminium. As a result of this composition, the exterior is light, stiff as well as more agile. The new entrant thus weighs approximately 110 to 220 pounds lighter as compared to the outgoing variant.

The new Ingenium four-cylinder petrol and diesel mills will be incorporated in this new range of cars. Already being utilised, are the 3.0-litre diesel and supercharged gasoline V6 engines. Another mill, which is present, is the supercharged V8, which powers the XFR-S and XFR, concentrated mainly on performance. The global public premiere of the BMW 5-Series and Audi 6 rival will take place at the New York Auto Show next week
