Whether you like it or not, the Royal Wedding has been pretty much inescapable on every form of media—social or otherwise. We’re not going to talk about princes and princesses and fancy castles, though. We need to talk about their reception car.
It was 1988 and Jaguar hadn’t won Le Mans since the 1950s. It was time to change that. It was time to change that with the Jaguar XJR-9. Here’s how Jag did it.
Guys, I need help. I heard something highly distressing today about how Jaguar might do away with its lovely, incredible, perfect supercharged V6 engines. I don’t think my heart could take it if it did.
I consider myself a fan of industrial designer Raymond Loewy. He basically created the modern concept of an industrial designer. He would drive a dune buggy in an ascot. And he designed some great-looking cars, like the Studebaker Avanti. He also did some pretty horrific things to some lovely Jaguars, too.
The 2019 Jaguar I-Pace is a fairly practical hatchback disguised as an electric crossover, but it has one surprising feature that might be unexpected for a low vehicle powered purely by batteries—it can wade through 19 inches of water. Almost 20, in fact.
Many people have challenged the design team at Jaguar for slapping the corporate face on the innovative new Jaguar I-Pace, claiming it doesn’t need a grille if it’s electric. Jaguar wanted to set the record straight at the New York Auto Show, and it turns out the grille actually serves two vital functions.
We had some qualms with Jaguar Land Rover’s E-Pace performance capability, but the automaker sure seems to have delivered on performance with the new F-Pace SVR, which is debuting at the New York auto show this week. A supercharged V8 is packed under the hood and it’s supposd to deliver 550 horsepower. Alright now.
At first, I was slightly put off that the loaned 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake S was silver. It’s a really petty thing to complain about, the color of a press car—but after driving it for a weekend, I realized that the more mundane one of these wagons looks, the the more covert you actually feel about driving it. This is…
I always thought it was silly that cars are so heavily targeted at little boys in toy stores. Cars are pretty much the best things rendered by the hand of humankind, and should be enjoyed by all, right? And while toy stores tend to be the most aggressively gendered stores around, I’m glad to see some hard-core…
It took far too long for the Jaguar XJ6 to be appreciated as a prime candidate for restomodding. For years we could have been enjoying cars as cool as Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain’s ’84 Jag. But you know what? Don’t waste your time searching for all those wasted years. Face up; make your stand and realize you’re…
Can it be true, that Jalopnik has had the good fortune of having four (four!) wagons in a span of a mere three months? It is indeed, and this is the latest one: the 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake S. What do you want to know about it?
There aren’t a ton of modern car designers who can be called household names, but Jaguar Land Rover’s Ian Callum at least comes close. The British manufacturer is in the middle of a genuine design renaissance and we have him to thank for it. But everyone starts somewhere.
The top chassis there was originally designed in 1938. The lower one is brand new, a 2018. There’s 80 years of difference between the two, but there’s an undeniable convergent evolution thing going on as well, right?
The Jaguar D-Type of the mid-1950s, easily one of the most beautiful metal skins ever wrapped around four wheels and a frame, is back. Jaguar is building 25 brand new 2018 D-Types, exactly as they were made over 60 years ago, for some very lucky and wealthy customers.
Will we ever get tired of cutesy design elements hidden in the corners of new cars? Of course not! At least, I certainly won’t. Even if only for an excuse to say something about a modern crossover besides “competent, boring.” Anyway, check out these artistic details cooked into the 2018 Jaguar E-Pace.
The 2018 Jaguar E-Pace is a noble effort in the quest to make the small crossover SUV/sports car mashup aesthetic work. It’s decent to drive, too. But don’t get too carried away convincing yourself that this is a family-friendly F-Type; the E-Pace’s value proposition is more about style than substance.
People use the term ‘race car for the street’ to describe all kinds of cars, but it’s hardly ever actually true. Motorsport demands so much of a car that it could never truly meet the rigorous demands of daily use. Race cars are optimized for smooth racetrack surfaces, not the pockmarked streets of workaday life.
The owner of this 2016 Jaguar F-Type R came home to a “frantic” property manager yesterday, who informed him that his car was damaged. “I thought he meant something rather minor, because he knows I am pretty obsessive over my car,” he told Jalopnik. It wasn’t minor.
