The Jaguar XF is one of the most eagerly anticipated cars of the year and it’s only about a week until official images and details of the car are released. Teaser images and supposed shots of the new sedan have been circulating around internet forums for weeks now including this latest shot that turned up on the JaguarMania Forums, revealing the new car’s profile completely undisguised.

The new XF is a crucial model for the struggling British marque so its styling is very important. The C-XF concept promised a lot but this new image shows a much more mundane car, especially its styling up front. Hopefully the new XF will look better once it’s seen in the metal at next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show.
