Jaguar XE to debut at 2011 Geneva Motor Show


While talking about the company’s future plans, Karl-Peter Forster and Ralph Speth confirmed that the XE sports roadster will make its world debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show . This is exactly 50 years after the debut of the XKE which it is reputed to be the spiritual successor. Jaguar will unveil it as a roadster first, but a coupe version will follow.

The 2013 Jaguar XE will be built on an all-new aluminum platform and will be powered by a V8 petrol engine with 385hp in a naturally aspired version and 510 hp in the supercharged version. Reports also suggest that the upcoming XE will be made as a hybrid variant. The gas/electric vehicle will use a much more efficient lithium ion battery pack, as opposed to today’s nickel based energy storage devices. Fans of high performance don’t fret, because Jaguar is also preparing an R version of the XE.

The 61 XKE was sex on wheels . I think its the rectangular grill that I dont buy. not on an XKE redo. Maybe the coupe rendering will help some.

Wow, now that’s the sexiest looking Jaguar I’ve ever seen. I don’t care what the specs are or what the price is. If I had the money, I would so get this car.
