Paul Alcock - 62.9 reasons to buy an XF!

XF Interior It hardly seems possible that four years have passed since Andy Whyman introduced us to the new Jaguar XF in January 2008.

Little did we know at that time, that Paul Alcock was starting the development of the 2012 version of the XF.

Pauls presentation was an overview of the 2012 XF programme. As manager of this project, Paul is ideally placed to give this talk, which is mostly taken from the technical briefings at the launch in Munich.
