With four days still left to bid on this 2014 Jaguar F-Type V8 S Convertible, any petrolhead who’s on the lookout for a new ride might want to check out this ad.

To us, the prospect of purchasing a 495 PS (488 HP) F-Type with just 13,000 miles (20,921 km) on the clock is pretty exciting. At the time of writing this article, the highest bid was $20,000, which makes it very tempting indeed.

According to the Bring a Trailer ad, the car comes with adaptive suspension, active exhaust, electronically-controlled LSD, 20-inch wheels, heated seats and steering wheel, and a Meridian sound system.

It also sports the Vision Pack, which adds adaptive lighting, automatic high-beams, a rear-view camera and blind spot monitoring, and the Design Pack that includes the body-colored front bumper splitter, aero splitters and side sill extensions. In other words, this car is pretty loaded on all fronts.

The F-Type V8 S can sprint from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.3 seconds and tops out at 300 km/h (186 mph). Moreover, the seller was nice enough to make a video showing off the Jag’s exhaust note, which you’re probably going to enjoy.

Is The Jaguar I-Pace A Worthy Tesla Model X Rival? 7
Dec
Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Electric Vehicles, Geneva Motor Show, Jaguar, Jaguar I-Pace, Jaguar Videos, reviews, video on 12 7th, 2017


That’s a pretty daring question to ask, considering that Jaguar’s new electric crossover has not been unveiled yet, but everything about it sounds promising.

Starting with the elegant exterior, moving through the high-tech cabin that offers plenty of space for passengers, and ending with the driver assistance equipment, the Jaguar I-Pace seems to have plenty going for it.

Even the numbers look good: 0-100km/h (62mph) in about 4sec, and 400PS (394hp) and 700Nm (516lb-ft) of torque coming from the electric motors mounted on both axles, backed up by a 90kWh battery that’s believed to allow it to cover some 500km (310 miles) between charges.

The sporty suspension may be on the stiff side, but the Jaguar I-Pace absorbs most bumps in the road comfortably, even when equipped with 22-inch wheels.

However, is that enough to worry Tesla and BMW’s upcoming ‘ix’ range of fully electric SUVs after it debuts next March, at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show? Let’s see what AutoExpress have to say in their shotgun review of a pre-production model, in sunny California, but we’ll give you a hint: it’s exciting.

Jaguar Putting Final Touches On Electric I-Pace SUV Ahead Of Early 2018 Reveal 6

Jaguar’s upcoming all-electric I-Pace SUV is entering final validation testing ahead of its global reveal in early 2018.

Jaguar has successfully tested over 200 prototypes of the I-Pace, covering 1.5 million miles and 11,000 hours of component rig testing and now says that we’re only months away from seeing the final production version at its showrooms.

“After 1.5 million global test miles, the I-PACE is ready for production and is proven to deliver long distances on a single charge,” said Ian Hoban, Jaguar Vehicle Line Director. “Jaguar’s first battery electric vehicle will also be fast to charge; our target is a zero to 80 per cent charge being achievable in a short break.”

Thousands of potential customers have already placed a deposit or registered their interest in buying the British electric SUV, with Jaguar having invited a lucky few of them to accompany their engineers in the final validation tests of the I-Pace.

For example, Ann Voyer from Pasadena wanted to find out if the I-Pace would have enough range to complete her favorite road trip along California’s West Coast and Jaguar took her on a long-distance 200-mile range test -between Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, and Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo- which was completed on a single charge.

Jaguar will announce the full specs and pricing of the new all-electric I-Pace SUV in March 2018, when the order books will officially open.

Jaguar XEL Love Edition Arrives In China 29

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in china, Jaguar, Jaguar Videos, Jaguar XE, new cars, prices, video on 11 29th, 2017


Jaguar are celebrating the introduction of the China-only XEL with a limited edition of the car, called Love.

Offered in 100 units and endorsed by a local singer and actor that goes by the name of William Chan, the new Jaguar XEL Love Edition will be available for sale until December 13.

It carries a price tag of 332,800 yuan (equal to $50,399), which makes it some 33,000 yuan ($4,997) more expensive than the entry-level XEL.

So what does paying the sticker price bring you? Well, let’s see, you won’t get any special ‘Love Edition’ badges, exterior colors, and interior novelties, as it appears that the only things present that you cannot have on the regular versions of the car are the 17-inch alloy wheels, with a two-tone finish, and ‘Luxtec’ stitching inside.

The new XEL Love Edition is only available with the automaker’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which feeds 200PS (197hp) and 320Nm (236lb-ft) of torque to the wheels. If you were craving for the 250PS (246hp) and 365Nm (269lb-ft) variant of the same lump, then you will have to settle for the regular long wheelbase variant.

Jaguar XE SV Project 8 Sets Nurburgring Sedan Record Of 7min 23sec 29

Posted by Brad Anderson in Jaguar, Jaguar Videos, Jaguar XE, Nurburgring, Record, video on 11 29th, 2017


The Jaguar XE SV Project 8 has become the fastest sedan to ever lap the Nurburgring, recording a blistering time of 7 minutes and 23 seconds.

The previous record was a 7 min 32 sec set by the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio but Jaguar managed to slashed a full nine seconds off that record with the hardcore XE SV Project 8 in production-intent specification.

Unlike the Giulia Quadrifoglio which is sold throughout the world and in large numbers, Jaguar will only build 300 examples of the Project 8. Nevertheless, it shows the Germans and Italians that they can’t have the high-performance sedan market all to themselves.

Speaking about the Nurburgring record, Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations managing director John Edwards said, “SVO exists to push the boundaries of performance, luxury and all-terrain capability. The hand-assembled XE SV Project 8 takes that principle to the limit, extracting supercar-beating performance from Jaguar’s most compact four-door sedan. The Nürburgring Nordschleife record underlines our commitment to deliver the most extreme Jaguar ever to Project 8 clients, who will soon experience this sensational sedan for themselves.”

Sitting at the heart of the XE SV Project 8 is a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine with 600 PS. Connected exclusively to an eight-speed transmission, the super sedan can accelerate to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 200 mph (321 km/h).

Can The Jaguar E-Pace Scare The Premium Compact SUV Establishment? 25
Nov
Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Jaguar, Jaguar E-Pace, Jaguar Videos, new cars, reviews, video on 11 25th, 2017


Despite the ‘E’ prefix added to its name, the Jaguar E-Pace is not electric, but smaller than the F-Pace, the brand’s first-ever SUV, hence the ‘E’ prefix.

Jaguar’s rival to the ikes of the BMW X1, Audi Q3 and Mercedes-Benz GLA, the compact SUV shares its underpinnings with the Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery Sport, and can be had with all-wheel drive.

Its exterior design is eye-catching, and it could very well be the best-looking vehicle in class, according to Autocar’s Matt Prior, who also appreciated the ‘Jag-feel’ inside, rear legroom, and lots of storage spaces, things that the automaker tends to bring forward when discussing the E-Pace.

However, the interior build quality is not on par with its rivals, and there is some road and wind noise coming into the cockpit at certain times. Also, don’t expect it to drive like a Jaguar saloon, because you’ll be disappointed. However, if you could go around its flaws, you’ll find a good ride quality and a handling that’s not too bad.

So, is the Jaguar E-Pace worth looking into when shopping for a new premium subcompact SUV? Click on the video below and find out.

New Jaguar E-Pace Isn’t Perfect But Does It Matter? 22

Posted by Michael Karkafiris in Jaguar, Jaguar E-Pace, Jaguar Videos, UK, video on 11 22nd, 2017


Following the commercial success of the F-Pace, Jaguar is expanding its SUV range with the addition of the E-Pace, a smaller crossover designed to rival cars like the BMW X1 and the Mercedes GLA.

The British car maker wants the new E-Pace to become the benchmark in terms of handling in its class and of course design. Inspiration was clearly drawn by the F-Type in a bid to make the new compact crossover a Jaguar worthy of the name, both inside and out.

The underpinnings though are shared with the Range Rover Evoque, with Jaguar making the necessary alterations to things like suspension geometry in order for the E-Pace to offer a different, more engaging character.

All engines measure 2.0 liters in capacity and four cylinders, with Euro-spec cars getting three power options for the diesel unit (148hp, 178hp and 237hp) and two for the petrol one (246hp and a range-topping 296hp). Jaguar will offer the E-Pace in both front- and all-wheel drive versions.

So it looks good, there are plenty of options in the range and has a Jaguar badge on it but can the E-Pace mix all those things well enough to become a solid player in the segment? Auto Express delivers its verdict, so let’s find out.

Jose Mourinho Took Α Day Job Building A Car 16

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho paid a visit to Jaguar Land Rover’s factory in Solihull, where he assisted factory employees in building his new car, a model number 100,000 F-PACE.

The “Special One” even wore bespoke Jaguar overalls while making his way to the factory floor where he followed his car along the production line, though not before he have a pep talk to the team.

“It was an amazing experience to visit Jaguar’s factory and see all the cars, technology and hard work that goes into developing such a beautiful car. Jaguar is a brand that I have been involved with for many years,” said the Man United manager.

“Back in 2014, I was the first UK customer to receive the F-TYPE Coupe and now to become the 100,000th Jaguar F-PACE customer is something very special.”

In 2016, Mourinho got to experience the F-PACE at a high-performance driver training experience in the Arctic Circle, on a 60 km frozen late at Jaguar’s extreme testing facility in Arjeplog, Sweden.

“It’s great to have one of the most successful football managers drive the F-PACE, our SUV that has been voted as the best and most beautiful car in the world by the 2017 World Car of the Year jury. Just like Jose Mourinho, the F-PACE is all about individual style and top performance,” is what Jaguar design boss, Ian Callum had to say.

Jaguar F-Pace SVR Gets Put Through Its Paces 14
Nov
Posted by Brad Anderson in Jaguar, Jaguar F-Pace, Jaguar Scoops, Jaguar Videos, Nurburgring, Scoops, SUV, video on 11 14th, 2017


Eager to cash in on demand for its sleek F-Pace SUV, Jaguar is developing a performance-focused variant, expected to adopt the SVR badge.

Filmed during testing on a number of occasions throughout the past 12 months, the F-Pace SVR promises to scare rivals, including the Porsche Macan Turbo and Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio.

To do so, Jaguar Land Rover will install its familiar 5.0-liter supercharged V8, inevitably delivering over 500 hp and potentially as much as 550 hp. Such grunt should enable the SUV to accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) in roughly 4 seconds.

This particular prototype can be distinguished from others seen in the past as its hood has large air extractors and there’s a bespoke rear bumper and quad tailpipe setup. The V8 also sounds very familiar, although it doesn’t have all the cracks and pops provided by V8-powered F-Type models.

Expect to see the Jaguar F-Pace SVR in the first half of 2018.

Jaguar F-Type Climbs Up The Factory Wall To Honor Veterans 10
Nov
Posted by Carscoops Staff in Jaguar, Jaguar F-Type, Jaguar Videos, video on 11 10th, 2017


A sports car that handles as well as the Jaguar F-Type may feel like it can drive up a wall, but this one actually is.

To honor Britain’s men and women in uniform, past and present, Jaguar emblazoned an F-Type with a special poppy livery, reminiscent of the symbol of remembrance.

The vehicle has been installed on the face of Castle Bromwich, where Jaguar builds the F-Type and where the Spitfire fighter aircraft was built between 1938 and 1945.

The installation, which bears the words of John McCrae’s enduring poetic WWI tribute In Flanders Field, sits 35 feet high – opposite the Sentinel sculpture and visible to motorists traveling down the M6 motorway.

Honored with the Gold Award of the Armed Forces Covenant employer recognition program, Jaguar Land Rover has hired 750 former servicemen and women since 2013 alone – including 18 wounded veterans in its own ranks, and another 11 at associated suppliers.

A second F-Type SVR with the same livery is slated to embark upon a ten-day tour of the UK. The tour kicks off on the Royal British Legion’s Birmingham Poppy Day, serving along the way as safety car for the Mission Motorsport’s fourth annual Race of Remembrance, and ending on Remembrance Sunday.
