Jaguar is putting the finishing touches on the facelifted XJ as our spies have caught the model putting in a few laps at the Nürburgring.

Set to debut at the Paris Motor Show, the 2015 XJ has an evolutionary design but adopts a new front bumper with revised air intakes. The styling changes are less noticeable out back but appear to include a new rear bumper and restyled exhaust tips.

Engine options are expected to carryover but there has been speculation about a plug-in hybrid variant. Nothing is official but Jaguar has previously unveiled an XJ_e prototype that featured a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack. It enabled the model to produce a combined maximum output of 334 PS (245 kW).
