the car you are thinking of is an XF yes it was a 4 wheel drive turbo running through a 6 speed box it went to england for testing but was totaled on an icy road by stupid pommy testers this is all i know unfortunatly

the vehicle never was mass produced as it was built late 87 - the enf of XF production, and would have been pointless going into profuction with the EA just around the corner



so the car isnt an XE at all
