Default 2012 Jaguar XK Facelift

Amazing news guys. Now the XK looks perfect.

Jaguar has announced 2012 revisions to the XK coupe and convertible - chiefly concerned with bringing it into line with the XKR-S.

2012 Jaguar XK: the lowdown

Changes on the XK are more subtle than the refreshed 2011 Jaguar XF, and share some elements with the range-topping XKR-S which was unveiled at the 2011 Geneva motor show.

Up front, the XK has completely new headlights. The new headlights are 15mm slimmer than the original XK units, and feature integrated LED running lights. They compliment a larger, chrome-framed oval grille with mesh insert. You can spot an XKR by its black mesh grille. Brake cooling ducts flank the oval grille.

In profile, you can see a new horizontal vent, replacing the vertically aligned vent in the pre-facelift car. The new vent bears a chrome blade engraved with 'Jaguar' script, and is designed to lend the XK a longer, lower appearance. What, you were expecting a rationalisation based on aerodynamics or engine bay cooling?

LED technology arrives for the 2012 XK's taillights. There's also a thinner chrome strip across the rear of the car, and Jaguar spotters will note the Jaguar leaper badge, appearing for the first time on the XK.

Any other changes to the new 2011 Jag XK?

There are no major changes to the XK's interior, which was refreshed in 2009. New trim combinations and optional sports seats are the sole new features Jaguar mentions about the new XK.

Engines and transmissions remain as before: 5.0-litre V8s in naturally aspirated or supercharged trim, coupled to a ZF six-speed automatic transmission.

XK and XKR models will be available in coupe or convertible guise, while the XKR-S is a coupe only. All models go on sale in the UK in September 2011.

Default Re: 2012 Jaguar XK Facelift

Looks soft and beautiful.Albeit,the XK-R launched previously (turquoise blue) is something else and would be my pick.

Anyway,why every manufacturer wants their products with LEDs? Bugs me!
IMO,some bits should be left untouched.

Talking Jaguar XF Facelift + New Engine

At the New York Auto Show, one of the best facelifts ever done was revealed!

The 2012 Jaguar XF!

The XF gets new front and rear seats, new color options, and new choices in veneers. Various controls receive a new black finish, the info screen in the gauge cluster is now rendered in full color, and there are more redundant controls below the slow-acting seven-inch infotainment screen. Hallelujah. Three new stereos join the party, including a 1200-watt, 17-speaker Bowers & Wilkins unit.

The most noticeable change for the 2012 XF lineup, though, is to the headlights, which are much more like those on the new XJ. The lights are flatter than they were before, and no longer have a lumpy semicircle protrusion at the top. They've been reshaped at the corners, as well—note the integrated strips of LED lighting—meaning that the fender and front clip had to be considerably reworked to accommodate the new units, and the former gets reshaped fender vents. The XF's grille is now more upright than it is on pre-face-lift cars, the lower front air intake has been gently tweaked, and, out back, the taillights are now full LED pieces. (In XFR-land, the high-po model's revisions aim to set it further apart from workaday examples.) The result is a more cohesive look, one that sends an even more aggressive, sporty message.

If anyone has any idea when it would be launched in India, Please let me know!
