Gaydon, England – Jaguar UK has launched a high-performance police pursuit vehicle based on its XF Diesel S model. The first-ever police-spec XF is currently being evaluated by police forces across England.

“Police forces are looking for vehicles that represent value for money, have good environmental credentials and deliver the power and performance required of a pursuit vehicle,” said Geoff Cousins, U.K. managing director for Jaguar Cars. “The police officers driving pursuit vehicles demand a very high level of performance and handling, as well as safety and comfort.”

The police-spec Jaguar uses a 3.0-litre Diesel S engine and has a zero to 96 km/h acceleration time of 5.9 seconds.
