Imágenes en vivo del nuevo Jaguar XF 2012.
Transcripción de la narración:
En el Salón del Automóvil de Ámsterdam se puede ver el nuevo Jaguar XF.
Es una puesta al día del modelo que comenzó a venderse en 2007. Estará
disponible a finales de 2011, principios de 2012.
Los cambios en el exterior son pequeños. Lo más relevante es la nueva
forma de los faros delanteros, que ahora se asemejan mucho a los del
prototipo CX-F y a los de la berlina XJ. También varía el diseño de los
parachoques, el tamaño de las entradas delanteras de refrigeración y los
En el interior los cambios son aún menos perceptibles. Los mandos de la
consola central y los asientos tienen un diseño ligeramente diferente. El
sistema de audio ha sido mejorado y ahora incorpora dos entradas USB.
El XF estrena un motor diésel con 4 cilindros, 2,2 litros, 190 CV y 450 Nm
de par motor. Está asociado a una caja de cambios automática desarrollada
por ZF con 8 velocidades. El consumo medio oficial es de 5,4 litros cada
100 Km, un buen dato, en cuya obtención juega un papel importante el nuevo
sistema de parada y arranque automático del motor, más conocido como
El XF diésel de 190 CV acelera de 0 a 100 Km/h en 8,5 segundos y alcanza
una velocidad máxima de 225 Km/h.
La unidad del vídeo es un XF-S, que lleva el motor diésel V6 de 3 litros
y 275 CV que se comercializa en la actualidad.

There has been a lot of conversation lately about electric cars and racing,
with some even talking about introducing the technology into the F1 stage.
Nissan, on its part, has a lot to gain in terms of awareness given the
brands focus on the development of dedicated electric vehicles like the
With this in mind, the Japanese carmaker developed a purpose-built
prototype racer loosely based on the production Leaf that will receive its
first public outing at the 2011 New York International Auto Show . Compared
to the production model, the Lead NISMO RC (for Racing Competition), does
away with the rear doors, rear seat, trunk, audio system, navigation,
carpeting and other amenities, while gaining a mid-ship location for the
battery pack, electric motor and inverter.
The dedicated racer also gets a full carbon fiber monocoque bodywork with
removable front and rear sections, fixed windows, LED headlights and
taillights and driver-adjustable rear wing.
It features a 3.9-inch shorter wheelbase, and is 0.8 inches longer and 6.7
inches wider than the production Leaf, with the most dramatic change
concerning height as the RC sits more than a foot (13.8 inches) lower than
the road-going model, and ground clearance is limited to 2.4 inches. More
importantly, at 2,068 pounds (938 kg), the race version of the Leaf weighs
in at about 40 percent less than the production vehicle.
Underneath the carbon fiber skin, the NISMO RC features a mid-mounted
lithium-ion battery and a 80kW AC synchronous motor that generates 107 horsepower and 207
lb-ft of torque, both sourced directly from the production model. However,
power is transferred to the rear-wheels versus the production Leaf's
The NISMO RC also makes us of a double-wishbone suspension design front and
rear and driver-adjustable brake balance, while it rides on 18-inch 6-spoke
wheels and P225/40R18 Bridgestone racing tires.
Nissan says that in preliminary testing, the NISMO RC returned 0 to 62 mph
(100 km/h) acceleration time of 6.85 seconds and a top speed of 93 miles
per hour, adding that it is projected to have a running time of around 20
minutes under racing conditions.
Anticipation is running so high for Scion's version of the Toyota FT-86
sports coupe that some couldn't wait for the official reveal of the FR-S
later today at the New York Auto Show, and dropped the first pictures of
the car onto the web.
From what we can tell from these two photos, the Japanese automaker has
changed the design again with the FR-S sporting a new front bumper that
does away with the Geneva Show FT-86 II's aftermarket-like LED strips,
while also featuring a different rear bumper and diffuser, as well as more
pronounced rear fenders. The gaudy side vents are also gone while the study
is equipped with different exterior mirrors.
That's about all we have on the Scion FR-S for now, but we'll bring you all
the details and photos later in the day.
The 2012 XF benefits from revisions to the grille, hood, and front fenders,
which incorporate new triangular side vents, while Jaguar also added larger
tail lamps with full-LEDs for stop, tail light and turn signal functions.
In addition, the trunk lid trim has been redesigned. The XFR's newly styled
bumpers and alloy wheels complete the exterior makeover.
Inside, the changes are more subtle with the XF gaining a new steering
wheel, revised seats, a modified instrument panel and optional 1200W Bowers
& Wilkins premium sound system. In North America, the 2012 XF continues
with the existing engine lineup that includes a 385HP 5.0-liter
naturally-aspirated V8, a 470HP 5.0-liter supercharged V8 and a 5.0-liter
supercharged V8 with 510HP in the XFR.
In Europe and other markets, however, Jaguar is introducing the 2.2-liter
four-cylinder AJ-i4D turbo diesel, which
is a development of the Ford unit found in the Land Rover Freelander. The
oil burner puts out 190HP and 450Nm of peak torque, and is linked to a new
8-speed automatic transmission.
Jaguar says that with this engine, the XF reached 60mph (96 km/h) in 8.0
seconds en route to a top speed of 140 mph (225 km/h), while returning a
52.3mpg UK (equal to 43.6 mpg US or 5.4 lt/100 km) on the EU combined
cycle, making it the most economical Jaguar ever.

JAGUAR XFR 2012
Honest John's Jaguar XF 2.2-litre diesel road test
Jaguar has finally succumbed to eco pressure and fitted a four-cylinder
diesel engine to the Jaguar XF. It's also been given a facelift to bring
styling in line with the larger XJ. Is it still as good as the 3.0-litre
2012 Jaguar XF
A saloon with the soul of a Jaguar sports car, the XF has won accolades and
enthusiastic fans across the globe for its dynamic abilities and dramatic
looks. Advances in lighting technology have allowed the new 2012 Jaguar XF
model range to adopt the bold Jaguar design language introduced on the
flagship XJ saloon.
Sheetmetal revisions to the grille, bonnet and front wings incorporating
new triangular side vents give the car a more muscular, purposeful
appearance. The range-topping XFR receives its own unique, overtly
assertive design to underline its performance potential while an
alternative 'Aerodynamic' option is available on all other derivatives for
a total of three dramatically different styling options.
The headlamps now incorporate bi-function HID xenon technology that allows
them to be much slimmer and more compact while still providing outstanding
beam resolution. They also incorporate LED daytime running lights arranged
in a distinctive Jaguar 'J-Blade' signature pattern for instant
The tail lamps have been entirely renewed and now extend onto the central
portion of the boot lid. These new units are now full-LED for stop, light
and indicator functions and give the Jaguar XF a distinctive night-time
rear signature. Separating them is a revised boot lid finisher with a gloss
black lower edge for a cleaner appearance. The boot also features power
closure on all models.
Three new paint colours and an expanded alloy wheel selection ranging from
17 to 20-inch provide the finishing touches to the revised styling.
'The XF has rightly been recognised as a quintessential Jaguar saloon. It
is purposeful yet elegant, with inherent sporting intent in its design. For
the latest version we have been able to evolve and enhance that performance
character to make the XF the most visually dynamic car in its class." Ian
Callum, Design Director, Jaguar Cars

Playing with the interior of my new Jaguar XF. I show you the interior of
the car and how it turns on and off. The dashboard of the 2011 XF features
hidden air vents that turn close when you turn the car off so that the
whole thing looks sleek when you don't have the air on.
