The more I see the XKR-S, the more I warm to its smack-you-in-the-face looks, which convey in a far from subtle manner that…er, the XKR-S is anything but subtle. Quite the opposite to the elegant style we’ve come to expect from Jaguar in recent years, and in stark contrast to the graceful beauty of the classic E-type.
These are exciting times for Jaguar, remarkably so given how recent their Tata owners were seeking a substantial injection of working capital from the British Government. Jaguar Land Rover have turned around their business in very short order, producing more than £200m in profit per quarter in 2010.
Jaguar will launch its most powerful ever production car, at the Geneva Motor Show on March 1st.
This all-new XKR-S will broaden the appeal of the XK range combining GT luxury with incredible performance, with its more powerful supercharged V8 engine, uprated suspension and a new aerodynamic design. the XKR-S is the ultimate expression of Jaguar’s long held duality of purpose: GT luxury with incredible performance.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of one of the most famous and desirable cars in automotive history – the Jaguar E-Type, and Jaguar will be celebrating this special anniversary year at high-profile motoring events throughout 2011.
2010 will come to be known as the turning point for environmentally responsible, alternative-energy motoring – it was the year when high-performance sporting brands made hybrid and electric powerplants cool. Porsche revealed the 911 GT3 R Hybrid, sent it out to compete with the big guns at the Nürburgring 24 hours and in ALMS and in doing so, showed that ‘green’ doesn’t mean slow
What do women look for in a car? Are automotive desires really gender specific? And can a male-dominated motor industry satisfy them? Angie Voluti examines car culture from a feminine perspective.
After making its world debut at the Paris motor show, and becoming the star attraction at the Los Angeles motor show, the C-X75 is now turning heads in Knightsbridge as Londoners, tourists and even the odd celebrity stop to gaze at it through the window of the Jaguar Boutique.
Stratstone Jaguar has pledged to donate up to £5,000 to the Royal British Legion, raised through the sale of its limited edition Jaguar XFRs.
The announcement was made in the week that Stratstone dealerships across the UK commenced the first customer deliveries of the strictly limited exclusive models.
No spotlights. No evocative music. No video walls playing carefully crafted videos. Unlike its world premiere on the stage at the Paris Motor Show, the first time Jaguar’s celebratory (75 years of heritage) and celebrated C-X75 set foot on the open road was a more gritty and real experience.
It might be Hollywood, but its edgy North Hollywood, not the Walk of Fame or the Sunset Strip, where Tinseltown’s favourite petrolhead Jay Leno became the first person outside Jaguar to drive the C-X75 on a public highway.
I’ve been taking a look at Bentley’s new iPad app that was launched earlier today. During the past month there’s been a bounty of iPad apps released by car makers, some of them acting as product showcases whilst others provide a more multi-media form of their customer magazine. If you’ve got yourself an iPad, then these apps are a great way to explore the many features of your new gadget whilst exploring some of your favourite cars.
To mark its 75th anniversary, Jaguar has unveiled the C-X75 Concept, a sports coupe showcasing a new design direction for the brand, along with an electric/gas turbine power source generating 769 bhp.
Not everyone can travel to Paris to watch all those shiny new cars being launched, so to save you the trip we’ve put together a simple web page to present 3 of the LIVE webcasts from the show, which kicks off tomorrow.
