The grille is 30 millimeters wider, ten millimeters taller, and recessed an inch to make room for the chrome strip that now represents the Jaguar face -- on the XK-R the chrome strip will be black. The headlamps are about 30 millimeters slimmer and feature the "twin Tie-Fighter graphic" meant to imbue a "sense of intrigue," and LED daytime running lamps. Below the lights, sculpted corners cascade into the lower grille, beside which are enlarged vents with chrome accents. Alongside, new front fenders wear horizontal side vents -- having been turned from the vertical. Callum suggested that the previous versions were designed not to step on Aston's toes, but with the family split, such concerns "aren't an issue now."
