2016 Jaguar XF chassis testing mule spied on the Nürburgring

The Nürburgring test season will be soon coming to an end and automakers are soon taking off to snowy Sweden to test their future cars near the Arctic Circle.

Here we have the latest spy shots of the next-generation Jaguar XF chassis testing mule, doing some of the last laps on the Nordschleife.

The early stage test mule for the second generation XF uses a modified body of the current generation model with a widened front track, new air intakes underneath the A-pillar, two exhaust tips mounted closer to the centre.

The second generation XF will use a new stretched version of the modular iQ[Al] platform, which previewed in the C-X17 crossover concept lat month at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

Reportedly the new XF will come with a range of new four cylinder engines, replacing V6 units(both diesel and petrol) linked to nine-speed automatic gearbox.

The All-wheel drive will remain optional and most likely a roomier XF Sportbrake will follow as well.

We expect to see full body prototypes sometimes next year. Public debut is most likely end of 2015 or in early 2016.
