A new car tuning kit for the Jaguar XF has been released by the guys at Loder1899. With some tweaks to the ECU, they were able to boost the 3.0-liter powerplant from the factory 275 bhp and 600 Nm of torque to 310 bhp with 680 Nm of torque. With this engine tuning, the luxury sports car can now accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 6.2 seconds, which is .2 seconds faster than the stock model. After that improvement, Loder1899 decided to focus on the exterior styling of the Jag XF.
The tuning company Startech has released the first images of the latest customization program for the Jaguar XJ. Featuring a new aero kit that consists of a new front spoiler with larger air ducts, LED daytime running lights, new fenders, rocker panel trim, rear apron, rear lip, and an integrated diffuser to complete the Jaguar XJ body kit. The car rides on special Startech Monostar J Diamond Edition wheels measuring 21×9.5 in the front, and 21×11 at the rear. To make the wheel package fit flush with the fenders, the tuners installed an adjustable suspension system to drop the ride height by 30 mm.
Tuning companies usually only release one body kit or performance package at a time, but Wald International has decided to launch five new car styling kits for several manufacturers. Typically a big tuner show like SEMA will come around, and we will get an assortment of new packages available for tuning enthusiasts. However, this time Wald International has unveiled new aero kits for the Rolls-Royce Ghost, Porsche Panamera, Jaguar XJ, BMW 7-Series, and Infiniti M makes and models. If they had possibly thrown in a Mercedes, Bentley, or Aston Martin kit to the group, they would have the whole tuning scene covered in one release!
The German car tuning specialists from Startech are well know for their Chrysler projects, however this time they turned to the luxurious Jaguar XK and Jaguar XKR. The modified parts and car styling done to the Jaguar’s include new carbon fiber panels, front and rear spoilers, and a new diffuser for the rear. The front bumper features daytime running lights and the Jaguar XKR rides on Monostar 21 inch alloy wheels. For suspension Startech lowered the cars height by 40 mm, and custom car tuning in the interior includes a light brown Alcantara leather throughout to create an English ambiance for the passengers.
