An Jaguar XK 140 with a unique body by Italian designer Michelotti was auctioned at Bonham’s Monaco auction in May for £311,645, including premium, despite needing a full restoration.
One cool cat... This E-type coupé topped half a million at auction. Here’s why ‘Although there is always a large choice of restored E-types on the market, very few have been done to such a perfect level’...
In 1966, the Italian coachbuilder Pietro Frua transformed an S-type chassis into a cool, stylish two-door coupe. Since his hopes of putting the car into production were unrealised, it remained a one-off. We’ve been to see it. Words & photography by Drive-My/Paul Walton.
Mancava? Mancava, visto che i mercati l’hanno accolta molto bene. Con la F-Pace, la Jaguar è entrata per la prima volta della sua storia ultracentenaria nel segmento oggi più caldo, quello dei suv. E la F-Pace è un suv a tutti gli effetti, nella linea imponente di 4 metri e 73 centimetri di lunghezza, mitigata da una altezza “sportiva” di un metro e 65.
A Jaguar XE 300 Sport has established a lap record for a production saloon at the original Circuit de Charade, Clermont-Ferrand, in France. The five-mile circuit – which includes public road sections – hosted the French Grand Prix in 1965, 1969, 1970 and 1972. It fell out of favour as loose volcanic rock and the lack of any real run-off areas took their toll on cars and drivers alike.
The E-Pace is now available with a raft of new updates that will no doubt make it to the rest of the range in the near future.
Jaguar erweitert sein 4x4-Portfolio um das Kompakt-SUV E-Pace und will mit Komfort, Sicherheit und traditionell britischen Emotionen um die Gunst der Interessierten buhlen – ohne dabei aus dem preislichen Rahmen zu fallen.
Avec le premier SUV de son histoire, Jaguar voulait battre le Porsche Macan sur le terrain du dynamisme. Si le F-Pace peut se targuer d’offrir une silhouette particulièrement sportive, il manque cet objectif initial et ne peut égaler la maîtrise hallucinante du SUV de la marque de Zuffenhausen en termes de comportement routier.
Avec la F-Type, Jaguar propose une alternative intéressante à la Porsche 911. Elle offre un style fort, et une généreuse gamme de motorisations allant du petit 4 cylindres turbo 2,0 l 300 ch jusqu’au V8 compressé de 5 l et 575 ch. Savoureuse à piloter en V6, elle devient brutale en version V8, même si cette dernière n’offre désormais plus qu’une transmission intégrale et abandonne la propulsion (contrairement au 6 cylindres).
JAGUAR Y LA ARTISTA MUSICAL Dua Lipa han realizado una colaboración conjunta para la promoción de la reciente gama SUV de Jaguar en Europa.
2,2 Tonnen Elektroauto, gebaut in der Steiermark. Zwei Motoren mit insgesamt 400 PS und 696 Nm konfigurieren Allradantrieb und schaffen eine Reichweite von echten 350 Kilometern (wenn man die 400 PS nur zu kleinen Teilen nutzt).
L’élégante berline XE étrennait la nouvelle plate-forme modulaire composée à 75 % d’aluminium du groupe britannique. Le V6 3,0 litres compressé de 380 ch, emprunté à la F-Type V6, s’équipe d’une boîte de vitesses automatique à 8 rapports. L ’auto se montre réactive et agile grâce à la rigidité de la structure et aux trains roulants spécifiques. Ainsi parée, la XE S se positionne notamment face à la nouvelle Audi S4 (V6 biturbo de 354 ch).

Production I-Pace Finally Revealed Jaguar launches first all-electric SUV by live broadcast.
2019MY F-PACE Jaguar’s best-selling SUV – the critically acclaimed F-PACE – has been improved for the 2019 model year with additional safety technology, convenience features and enhanced interior comfort, along with a cleaner, ultrafine exhaust filter, to deliver the experience contemporary customers expect from a Jaguar.
Shhhaguar, ho! Impressive as Jaguar’s I-Pace is, it’s the electric E-type that appeals the most…
J-Pace? Most of us were very excited when we first saw the C-X75 concept, and waited anxiously while the car was radically developed, only to be massively disappointed with the announcement it would not go into production.

Jaguar has revealed the new XE Reims Edition, only available in the UK and limited to just 200 units. Named in honour of the famous Reims- Geux circuit in Northern France where the D-type took its maiden victory in 1954, the Reims Edition comes exclusively with the 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol (P250) engine in R-Dynamic S guise and is fitted with a number of bespoke and standardised options. Each of the 200 units will be painted in French Racing Blue (previously only used on Jaguar’s most extreme models, the XKR-S and XFR-S), with a number of unique contrasting elements including a black contrast roof, black mirror caps, black sill inserts and fitted with 19in, five split-spoke, gloss black alloys.
Jaguar Land Rover and BMW Group have confirmed they are to join forces to develop the next-generation Electric Drive Units (EDUs) to advance electrification technologies, a central part of the automotive industry's transition to an ACES (Autonomous, Connected, Electric, Shared) future.
The much anticipated Jaguar F-Pace made its debut at Frankfurt and will be in showrooms in the first half of 2016. It promises to be a top seller. There have been many new models critical to jaguar’s success, but relatively few which branched off into a totally new market. That is the role of the aptly named F-Pace, Jaguar’s first and only, to date, SUV which fills a hole in a growing market segment. Concept C-X17s have been around for a few years, and final styling is almost identical, but in truth the C-X17s shown around the world were not engineering concepts, and to develop the engineering capabilities of an SUV, blended with Jaguar’s ride and performance levels, set Jaguar a totally different set of challenges.

A new British engineering specialist, Lunaz, has revealed details of an electric conversion for the XK 120, building a prototype based on a 1953 FHC. The car is powered by twin motors that produce 700NM (516lb ft) from zero engine speed and 375bhp, and features an 80kWh battery pack made up from brand-new automotive-quality lithium ion battery cells, built in-house by Lunaz.

Fresh from success at the World Car Awards in May, the I-PACE has now won the Best Electric Powertrain, Best New Engine and the 350PS to 450PS category at the International Engine and Powertrain of the Year Awards. These three new titles recognise the technical excellence of the I-PACE’s zero emissions powertrain, which was designed and developed in-house.

Just like the E-Type Zero, jump packs are also making use of lithium-ion battery technology, so this small device is easily capable of starting even a V12 Jaguar that has suffered a flat battery.
