Some people do not believe the Jaguar XJ220 was “good.” When I’m in charge, those people will be put into labor camps.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know so you can seem important and informed on Twitter. Just kidding, no one is good on Twitter.
The Jaguar Pirana Concept was what happened when you let the guy who designed the Miura and Countach get his hands on an E-Type.
Listen, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret. Little bit of “insider industry knowledge,” if you will. The Jaguar F-Type, while delightful, has V8 variants that are simply too much. The 550 horsepower F-Type R is overkill, and the 575 HP F-Type SVR is extra overkill. The supercharged V6 F-Types are the sweet spot,…
I’ll give 2016 credit for this, at least: the cars sure were good. Among the best sports cars that dropped this year were the Corvette Grand Sport, boasting a mighty all-American naturally aspirated 460 horsepower, and the Jaguar F-Type SVR, a supercharged loud noises machine with 575 horses. So which is better?
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
How do you make electric vehicles palatable in this era of cheap gasoline? For one, the trend seems to be making them all into crossovers, because those are the top-selling vehicles, period, at the moment. Thankfully Jaguar designer Ian Callum isn’t some mark-ass chump, and so his vision of the electric crossover…
It’s an XJS kinda day.
“You’re going to love it, it’s pretty much an F-Type with four doors,” a Jaguar rep told me on the eve of my drive in the all-new 2017 Jaguar XE. I think he oversold it a bit. The XE is a competent and sophisticated sporty-ish sedan with some of the best technology in the industry, but it comes up a bit short on the…
Jaguar wants you to think it just loves to be bad. It even hung a whole advertising campaign on that notion. So really, the biggest surprise about the new F-Type SVR is not its bewildering aggression, or its newly sharpened handling. The real shock is that it took Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations two years…
Today I find myself in Aspen, Colorado hobnobbing with millionaires (as I am wont to do) and set to drive the 2017 Jaguar XE sport sedan (which is new to me and America.) I’ll have a review of this thing soon enough; what do you want to know about it?
A lot of things have run through my mind when I’ve driven the Jaguar F-Type R. “This thing desperately needs more horsepower” has never been one of them. But we are in the age of overkill, and our beloved F-Type is about to get a heavy dose of just that. Meet the insane F-Type SVR.
Legendary racing driver and 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Andy Wallace relived his 1988 victory by taking to the Silverstone circuit to drive the Jaguar XJR9-LM during day and night back-to-back with the new 550PS, 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 Jaguar XJR. [Photo credit Jaguar]
One of the best and most beautiful sports cars around just got a little cheaper. Jaguar today announced the pricing for the 2017 Jag F-Type (good lord, we’re up to 2017 model year cars now? WOW) and it comes with a decent price cut.
Skyfall was the Bond movie that shattered audience expectations as well as box office records. Now director Sam Mendes is back to try and make lightning strike twice. Did he pull it off with Spectre? I saw the film last night, and I’m here with a few mildly spoiler-y thoughts before you go see it yourself this…
Meet Jaguar’s foray into the crossover market. It looks pretty much exactly like the C-X17 concept from 2013, as predicted. I do not think that’s a bad thing.
This is Norman Dewis. Norman Dewis was the chief test driver and development engineer for Jaguar from 1952 to 1985. He played a key role in developing more than two dozen of Jaguar’s most famous vehicles. In short, Norman Dewis has had a more amazing life than most people ever will.
The 2016 Jaguar XE is a huge deal for the British luxury brand and its ongoing modern renaissance. Jaguar has dumped a ton of money into a new all-aluminum architecture as well as a range of new engines to go with the proven ones. They need it to be a big volume-seller that can fight the BMW 3-Series, one of the…
