The first Jaguar XF police patrol cars have taken to the roads.

The police-spec XF S diesel is fitted with a roof-mounted light bar that has 3600 blue flashing lights, while further lights are integrated into the standard front and rear lighting systems.

A Home Office-specification electronics pack ensures that the additional lighting and communications equipment are fully powered. Beyond that and the addition of a police livery, the cars are standard.

The first batch of seven Jaguar XF S diesels are now patrolling motorways across Staffordshire, Mercia and the West Midlands.
