Can you believe the Jaguar XF has been around since 2008? It's not exactly ancient in car years, but it's getting long in the tooth. Fortunately for people who find themselves bored by the prospect of a 5-Series or an E-Class, Jaguar has an XF replacement coming soon, and it harnesses the amazing potential of aluminum.

Jaguar announced today that they'll be unveiling an all-new 2016 XF at the New York Auto Show next month, one that will go on sale this fall in Europe and next year in the U.S. It's based on the smaller, 3-Series fighting Jaguar XE, and is the second car to use its aluminum architecture.

Today, only a teaser shot of the roof was released, but here's the interior:

Looks pretty clean in there. No word on engines yet, but like the XE it will probably have a range of gas and diesel four- and six-cylinder motors, and probably the company's fantastic 5.0-liter V8 as well.

Before its New York debut, Jaguar will reveal the car through a giant high-wire act over London where stuntman Jim Dowdall will drive the car along two 1.3-inch-diameter wires over water.

Let's just stay away from this, shall we, Jaguar?
