Jaguar XE SV Pro Project 8 By SVO Will Be The Most Powerful Jag Ever

This will definitely come as a delight for any Jaguar fan. The upcoming Jaguar XE SV Project 8 served up by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations is destined to be the “the most powerful, agile and extreme Jaguar.” Engineered and hand-assembled by SVO at its Technical Center in Coventry, U.K, the compact luxury sedan’s 5L V8 Supercharged motor pumps out a supercar-worthy 572 HP, thus making it the most powerful road legal Jag in the marque’s history.

Jaguar’s XKSS Continuation Model Launched, Snapped Up In A Flash

We don’t know how much the Jaguar XKSS Limited Edition Roadster cost, but we won’t bother to find out cos’ only nine examples will be made and they are all spoken for. Anywho, the car is slated to make its world debut this November in California, coinciding with the opening of the Los Angeles Auto Show. For the uninitiated, Jaguar XKSS is a new old car that’s actually a continuation model, picking up where its forebear left. Jaguar XKSS was conceived 1957 as a road-legal model of the Le Mans winning D-type and this 2017 model will be the exact same car, right down to the look and specification as made in 1957.

1:5 Scale Jaguar XK120 Is A Kiddie Ride For Grown Ups That Goes 38MPH

Costing nearly two third of an entry level Jaguar XE and almost 70 percent pricer than the cheapest car in the United States, the Adult’s Jaguar XK120 Mini Roadster is certainly a luxury to have just like its real-life counterpart. And at 1:5 scale, this is the kiddie ride for grown ups, which means, it can only accommodate a person and 50 percent or more (if you are taller) of your body will be completely exposed to the elements, and the tiny replica windscreen is not going to stop bugs from hitting your face at 38 miles an hour. It is a roadster, so I guess that’s ok, but still, having more than half of your body exposed is a lot (hence a kiddie ride which we can’t stop saying). Continue reading 1:5 Scale Jaguar XK120 Is A Kiddie Ride For Grown Ups That Goes 38MPH

Unofficial Jaguar Naked Concept Car Looks Like It Belongs To Year 3016

Ask a car designer to dream up of a concept car, you will be greeted with out-of-this-world concepts that are somehow limited by corporate red tapes, but ask a bunch of not-tied-to-corporate designers to imagine what cars of the future would be like, you get a mind-blowing vehicle like the Jaguar Naked Concept you see here. Naked Concept is what designers Tarcisio Nogueira, Edilio Souza, Thiago Guermandi and Joao W. Henley is calling their straight-out-of-3016 concept ride. Actually, the concept isn’t entirely naked but it does take cue from naked motorcycles with the front sporting a futuristic, smooth-flowing form without any distractions and as the form progress beyond the door towards the rear, the nakedness emerges, thus exposing the framework that lets you in on what’s contained within that bulging, muscular rear end.

It’s Official. Jaguar C-X75 Will Be The Villain’s Ride in Bond Movie Spectre

You already know the next James Bond flick, Spectre, will feature the specially designed Aston Martin DB10 as the hero’s ride and probably had caught wind about Jaguar Land Rover’s involvement in the movie too. Well, the rumor has been confirmed. Jaguar Land Rover has let out the official words on their involvement in this Fall’s blockbuster. Unfortunately, Jaguar Land Rover’s ride (or should we say, rides), in most part, won’t get too intimate with Mr. Bond as the ‘star’ car involved, the C-X75 supercar, will be siding with the villains. Regardless, you can expect these cars to slug it out in the Bond-usual, adrenaline-pumping car chases. Not sure how much screen time the C-X75 will have, but Jaguar Land Rover specifically points out that the C-X75 will go head to head with the DB10 in a spectacular car chase sequence through Rome. Continue reading It’s Official. Jaguar C-X75 Will Be The Villain’s Ride in Bond Movie Spectre

Project 7MC Is What Happens If Jaguar Were To Make A Sports Bike

There is no telling if British luxury car maker Jaguar will ever make motorcycles, but if it did, we sure hope it will look like the Jaguar Project 7MC, a concept bike dreamed up by Hungary-based designer Tamás Jakus (of Jakusa Design). Jakus is no stranger to conceptualizing dream rides, be it two- or four-wheeled, but Project 7MC is the one that caught our attention. Not just because it is sleek ride. Not because it is a ‘what if Jag made a bike’ concept, but it is also a synthesization of two of the UK’s most iconic marques: Jaguar and Triumph. Most importantly, it looks like a lovechild of the Jaguar F-Type Project 7 and a Triumph Speed Triple. Continue reading Project 7MC Is What Happens If Jaguar Were To Make A Sports Bike

Jaguar Wants To Eliminate Blindspots Forever With ‘Transparent’ Pillars

After previewing the transparent hood and the virtual windscreen in the first half of 2014, Jaguar Land Rover is back with a new piece car tech with the aim of making driving an even safer affair. While the transparent hood takes on the off-road terrain and the virtual windscreen is focus on race track, this new concept is kind of a mash up of both, but adapted for urban environment. The new development will turn the vehicle’s pillars, when viewed from within the car, ‘transparent’ and also adds a ‘Follow Me’ ghost car to aid in navigation. Refer to as the ‘360 Virtual Urban Windscreen’, the concept aims to turn the roof pillars transparent so that you, the driver, can have a 360o view of the outside. Every driver knows that this whole time, they are actually ‘making do’ of the current situation i.e. enduring partially obstructed view caused by pillars, be it A, B or C.

Jaguar F-Type To Get Six-speed Manual Transmission and All-Wheel Drive, Just Not Both Together

Before you Jag fans get all too excited. The manual transmission and all-wheel drive on the new F-Type will be mutually exclusive. Meaning it is either or, and not both. Kind of a let down, but if you have pockets deeper than the Mariana Trench, you can consider scoring both the F-Type R or the 380 HP V6 F-Type S which will be offered with the AWD drivetrain, and the 340 or 380HP 3.0-liter V6 F-Type with stick shifter option. Anyways, with the addition of the all-wheel drive and manual gearbox options, the F-Type now grows from six to fourteen derivatives, which no doubt will leave richie rich spoilt for choice. In AWD form, in particular the 542 HP F-Type R, it will make 0-60 in just 3.9 seconds and finally topping out at 186 mph.

Hennessey’s HPE600 Upgrade Kit Puts More Ponies into the Jaguar F-Type Coupe, Makes 0-60 in 3.5 Secs

When comes to horsepower, some car enthusiasts can be quite an insatiable bunch, like what else can ask for when you already have 550 hp ride that makes, on paper, 0-60 in 4 seconds? Sure, it won’t be the fastest, but it is very fast, even more so if it is a daily ride like the the Jaguar F-Type Coupe or the R. However, if you are ever so inclined towards having more ponies out of a 2014-25 Jaguar F-Type Coupe and R, which by itself already has a very healthy 550 hp squeezed out of its 5.0-liter V8 Supercharged unit, John Hennessy may have the answer you’re looking for. For years, Hennessy has been helping American muscles to realize more power in exchange for a tidy sum, but now, he wants to push the performance boundaries of the British big cat further with the HPE600 Upgrade Kit that is said to yield 623 hp at the crank with 568 lb-ft of torque on the tap.
