Jaguar X-Type Sport

British carmaker, Jaguar revealed a new range of styling enhancements for the 2005 X-Type 3.0-liter Sport. The model will be available in November 2004 and the young buyer is the target. The enhancements made give the car a more aggressive and powerful look and also a sportier appearance with a new front lower spoiler, black mesh grille and lower grille. The design team has also lowered the side sills and added a new, lower rear valence to ensure that the more squat is noticeable from all angels. This is not all. The model also gets new exhaust tailpipe finishers and stylish 18-inch Aruba wheels to complete the look. On the inside it can feature optional carbon fiber fascia and new plush seating surfaces. The price for the new car will be revealed at a later date.

Jaguar today reveals details for a new range of styling enhancements for the 2005 X-TYPE 3.0-liter Sport, which will be available in November 2004. This exciting addition of exterior body styling and interior enhancements provides a stylish differentiation for the X-TYPE, and is targeted primarily at the younger buyer.

Jaguar Design Director, Ian Callum said, "Body-styling kits must be designed as an integral part of the car. The rationale was to emphasize the stance of the X-TYPE by lowering the visual aspect. The enhancements we have made for the X-TYPE Sport give the car a more aggressive, purposeful look. The whole attitude of the car has been lowered, giving the impression it is hugging the road."

The enhancements give the X-TYPE Sport a more athletic, sportier appearance with a new front lower spoiler, black mesh grille and lower 'infill' grille. In keeping with the new front-end section, the design team has also lowered the side sills and added a new, lower rear valence to ensure that the more squat, purposeful stance is noticeable from all angles. The X-TYPE Sport also gets new exhaust tailpipe finishers and stylish, 18-inch Aruba wheels to complete the look. The interior of the X- TYPE Sport can be fitted with the optional carbon fiber facia and new plush Alcantara seating surfaces.

Pricing as well as full 2005 model year X-TYPE details will be confirmed closer to the vehicle's on-sale date.
