PERFORMANCE JAGUAR XF IN POLICE PURSUIT
Jaguar UK has launched a high performance Police pursuit vehicle based on its award-winning XF Diesel S model. The first ever Police-spec XF is currently being evaluated by Police forces across the country.
Geoff Cousins, UK Managing Director for Jaguar Cars, said: “Police forces are looking for vehicles that represent value for money, have good environmental credentials and deliver the power and performance required of a pursuit vehicle.”
The Jaguar XF beats other contenders in this market with a fuel economy figure of 42mpg, class-leading residual values and an excellent CO2 rating of 179g/km.
“The Police Officers driving pursuit vehicles demand a very high level of performance and handling, as well as safety and comfort.”
The Police specification Jaguar features the 275PS 3.0-litre Diesel S engine with its unique, parallel sequential turbocharger system. Delivering high torque throughout the entire rev range, improved throttle response and low CO2 emissions, the twin-turbochargers work sequentially to deliver unrivalled response and best-in-class torque that means the XF packs a huge punch at all engine speeds.
“We hope that with this amount of torque on tap – and a 0-60mph time of 5.9 seconds, we will meet and exceed the exacting standards of any Police Officer driving this car.”
The XF has picked up more than 20 international awards since launch, most recently ‘Britain’s Best Car’ in the Auto Express Driver Power survey for 2009, ‘Best Executive Car’ at the What Diesel Magazine awards 2009 and the award for ‘Best Executive Car’ at the 2009 Fleet World Honours.
In the UK, retail pricing of the XF range starts at £32,900 for the 3.0-litre petrol. The 3.0-litre diesel model is available from £33,900 while the 3.0-litre Diesel S starts at £36,900. For more information go to www.jaguar.co.uk.
