Studies have shown that the average Jaguar shopper is around 65 years old, which is 5 years up from last year’s average age, which was 60. Jaguar earned the honor of having the oldest shoppers in the fourth quarter of 2006 according to a survey done by CNW Research, who conducts surveys of the automotive shoppers according to the dealership traffic. Lincoln held the position for the past three years and has now dropped third, while Mercedes-Benz finishes at second with an average age of 64.
Who has the youngest shoppers of them all? Kia, with an average age of 34.
An exclusive teaser video, Jaguar released the small clip today to tease us of what’s to come of the new C-XF Concept and what we can expect. Right off the bat, we see a cool flipping navigation screen, which is also found on the Audi A8, in which with a press of a button, the navigation screen hides and tucks away itself neatly thanks to a few motors. You’ll also notice that when the center control knob is about to be used, there’s a cool James Bond action that takes place.
Oh, gosh. This new vehicle is actually so cool.
As promised, I said I would post the latest info and data whenever it arrives, so here are more images of the details in the concept. As previously reported by Edmunds, we probably won’t see many of the gadgetry and tech you see on the concept be incorporated into production, but hopefully there will be enough tech to keep us satisfied.

The new Jaguar C-XF concept, which will debut at NAIAS, is one of the vehicles that will change Jaguar’s crumbling history. Similar to the MKR concept revealed earlier today, the C-XF will hint design cues which will be implemented on future Jaguar vehicles and will also be classified under four-door coupe category.
Inside, you’ll find aluminum, wood, and leather trims surrounding the cabin with hints of the interiors for future Jaguar’s. Packed with the 4.2-liter V8 from the XKR, the C-XF produces 420hp at 368lb ft of torque under the control of a 6-speed transmission. It’s all a lot of fun, but we probably won’t see these on the production vehicle anyways. But hey, if Jaguar does step up the game with this cool little concept available for consumers, then I think I might just go out and check out a Jaguar myself.

Matt e-mailed me this morning about pictures of the new Jaguar XF, replacing the S-Type. From what I can tell, the pictures show that the new sedan will have a coupe-like body, similar to that of the Mercedes-Benz CLS. As well, the aggressiveness of the design will be turned up a lot to compete with major luxury sedans. Nothing is known right now, so let’s keep our hopes up and pray that Jaguar will unveil something that will make us drool.

One word: Fun! I saw this video on YouTube and boy, it sure looks fun to be driving like that. Although in Japanese, the video shows a race-off between major luxury marques. There was the Audi A8, the new Lexus LS460, the Jaguar XJ-Series, and the BMW 745i. I was disappointed to see that they didn’t incorporate the Mercedes-Benz S-Class into the race since it fits into the category.
Anyways, watch the video for the winner. I won’t say who, but the race was pretty close anyways. I think you know who came in last. The video is courtesy of YouTube.

Jaguar revealed the S-Type model for the model year 2008 today at the Bologna Motor Show. For 2008, the S-Type will receive new specifications with reduced pricing. It also sports a new look too, or at least a very unnoticeable facelift. All S-Type’s will have the R bumper and mesh grille for 2008 with a more refined and distinct appearance.

Well, boys and girls, it looks like the all-new redesigned Jaguar S-Type will be renamed to XF, reported earlier by Jaguar’s managing director, Bibiana Boerio. Jaguar is hoping that with the new name, it will come along as a whole entire different car. The current S-Type is nothing but plain old boring styling, but now with the introduction of the XK-Type, many artists predict that the new XF will be more aggressive and have more distinct lines.
The new Jaguar S-Type, oops, I mean XF, goes on sale sometime in the 2008’s.
He helped Jaguar in launching the X-Type Estate, the new XJ sedan, the S-Type facelifts and managed the design of the R-Coupe, RD-6, and the Advanced Lightweight Coupe concepts. His name is Ian Callum, who was recently awarded with UK’s top-notch Royal Designer for Industry award.
Mr. Callum has not won the RSA once, but twice. His most recent work can be found on the new stylish Jaguar XK-Type, which features a fully-fashionable design, with smooth lines and a distinctive appearance. Good work!

Okay. After much controversy in the World’s Most Beautiful Automobiles post, I must first say that I did not create that list. I repeat, did not. That list was messed up anyways. So I have created my own little list for those who care to listen.
The list contains vehicles that you can find on the dealer lots today, not vehicles that are about to be introduced, so not to cause any controversy.
