2011 Jaguar E-type Concept

The original Jaguar E-type is more than just an oil burning two-seater back from the 60s. Much more than that. It's the epitome of British engineering and a symbol of world renown beauty. Even today, many motoring enthusiasts tremble before it as if it were the Holy Grail. It was one of the first cars that came with disc brakes as standard, it had a 3.8 liter engine that produced 265 hp and, according to Enzo Ferarri, at the time, it was “The most beautiful car ever made“. Today, the Britis

2012 Geneva Motor Show: Jaguar XF Sportbrake

Jaguar has announced the new XF Sportbrake at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. Practically, it is a Touring version of the XF series, but with sportier and more sleek appearance. "There is a faily high roofline by necessity, but because of the rising waistline, it still gives the impression of this tapering side window so the car still looks low and lean.", commented Jaguar Studio Director Wayne Burgess. “This is precisely why Jaguar chose to include the word "sport" in the vehicle's name.”, he added. The X

2012 Jaguar XF Sportbrake

Jaguar has unveiled the new 2012 XF Sportbrake, which will have its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in several days. The manufacturer claims that the XF Sportbrake will be the most versatile Jaguar ever created. The model has the same chassis like the XF saloon, but the overall length grows by just 5mm. Still, the weight is 70kg less, so the Sportbrake can closely match the acclaimed handling of the XF saloon yet offers a large and highly practical load space. The exterior is entir

Jaguar XK, XKR Special editions

To say that a Jaguar lacks the successful formula of blending luxury with engineering perfection, would be a mistake. However one could say that the XK and XKR can do even better. That is why now we have the XK and XKR Special Edition models (coming in Coupe or Convertible setups). The focus here is mainly the interior with added a hand-crafted 'Artisan' design. Let's talk leather - 'scraffito' finished front seats, instrument binnacle, door and rear quarter casings. All the while two new venee

Some of the most wanted and expensive collectible cars from the past

Have you ever wondered which are some of the most desirable cars from the past? "Which models collectors are crazy for?" is the question asked here.

Jaguar XJ220 20 Years Later

It has been 20 years since the first XJ220 rolled out from it's own factory in Bloxham and even by today's standards it still is a masterpiece. In 1992, the fastest one could go was 213 mph, in an XJ 220. That threshold is a challenge for today's M5. Originally conceived as a concept car, designed by Keith Helfet, the XJ220 was showcased on the 1988 British Motor Show. It was the kind of concept that nobody believed that it would be built but an year later production was given a green light a
