Wheels24's Spy photographers have  captured images in the snow-covered forests of Germany of what will become Jaguar’s second-generation XF.

The car shares a platform with the XJ replacement and the rumoured successor to the XK. All three could be based on the platform developed for the current Range Rovers and built at the re-tooled Castle Bromwich factory in Birmingham, central England.


Peeking out from under the camouflage is a design language that's very similar to the XE with a large oval grille and creases added to suggest premium quality.


Unlike the current generation, which has a normal sedan boot, the second-generation XF appears similar in shape to the Audi A5 Sportback, with a sloping coupe roof and a raised tail hatch for easier access.

Details on engines are scarce though Automedia reports we could see new Ingenium engines and a nine-speed auto from the Evoque.

The XF is scheduled to launch after the XE compact and XQ crossover in 2016.
