The only problem I have with the design is the wheel caps, besides that sexy is all I can think of when I look at this.

In the time since my grade school days Jaguar’s public standing and sales figures have taken a bit of a hit. The hopes are that new XF can change the brand’s fortunes.
The XF first came to my attention after reading Braden Phillips‘s article in the New York Times. More recently I got some details on the diesel version of the car at flylyf.com and have come away both hopeful and expectant. And since none of you got me that McLaren I was angling for I think this would make a great make up present. Liquid silver metallic finish, please.
