Jaguar has announced 2012 revisions to the XK coupe and convertible - chiefly concerned with bringing it into line with the XKR-S.

2012 Jaguar XK: the lowdown

Changes on the XK are more subtle than the refreshed 2011 Jaguar XF, and share some elements with the range-topping XKR-S which was unveiled at the 2011 Geneva motor show.
Up front, the XK has completely new headlights. The new headlights are 15mm slimmer than the original XK units, and feature integrated LED running lights. They compliment a larger, chrome-framed oval grille with mesh insert. You can spot an XKR by its black mesh grille. Brake cooling ducts flank the oval grille.
In profile, you can see a new horizontal vent, replacing the vertically aligned vent in the pre-facelift car. The new vent bears a chrome blade engraved with 'Jaguar' script, and is designed to lend the XK a longer, lower appearance. What, you were expecting a rationalisation based on aerodynamics or engine bay cooling?
