  • Jaguar restarting production of D-Type after 62 years

    After 62 years, Jaguar will finally complete the D-Type's intended production run. Jaguar Classic announced on Tuesday it intends to build 25 examples of the D-Type racer to complete the originally intended run of 100 cars. The company only built 75 D-Types when production ceased in 1956, but Jaguar always planned for 100 cars total. Thanks to Jaguar Classic's painstaking research, every part and body panel will be hand-built to authentic specifications. Truly, these will be vintage race cars built in the modern era. A storied motorsports history surrounds the D-Type racer, which won the 24...

    2018 Jaguar E-Pace first drive review: small crossover with big ideas

    The afternoon sun in Corsica melts into the 2018 Jaguar E-Pace’s sumptuous lines. The E-Pace needs a lot of light. After all, it’s instantly familiar. Its shapes raid Jaguar’s closet and wrap them around a compact crossover—none of this is a bad idea. The running gear has a...

  • 2018 Lister Thunder
    Lister unveils 'new' Thunder sports car

    Revived British sports car marque Lister has unveiled its first new car since the Storm of the 1990s. We use the term “new” lightly, however, because the car unveiled by Lister on Wednesday is actually a modified Jaguar F-Type. Lister is calling it the Thunder, and just like its Storm...

    Jaguar that Bernie Ecclestone sold when still a car dealer fails to sell at auction

    Bernie Ecclestone wasn't always the billionaire Formula 1 boss and polarizing figure he is today. He was once a humble car dealer, and a 1956 Jaguar D-Type originally sold by the man himself went up for auction on Saturday in Scottsdale, Arizona. Unfortunately, it never reached its reserve despite...

  • Jay Leno drive sa 1975 Jaguar XJ6 Coupe

    Jay Leno kicks off this latest video with some wise words. He wants to slow things down and focus on a vehicle with a bit less horsepower than he's used to, but a hefty dose of style. This week the featured machine at Jay Leno's Garage is a 1975 Jaguar XJ6 Coupe. It's a classically cool cruiser that's been lovingly cared for and maintained. The stance is perfect. British Racing Green paint work is always the right choice on an older Jag, and the overall aura of the car is immediately appealing. It's no wonder that owner Christopher Glancy wound up calling this XJ his own. Upon moving to Los...

    Jaguar Land Rover invests in self-driving startup Voyage

    There's no shortage of startups looking to be among the first to develop safe and reliable self-driving systems to power fleets of potentially lucrative self-driving taxis.

One obvious way to achieve this is by making a splash in the world of motorsports. Another is to take what you've learned in that space and apply it to a special road-going...

  • 2018 Jaguar XE
    Jaguar isn't planning a V-8 for XE or XF

    Well, color us a shade of bummed. After long speculation, Jaguar confirmed we won't see a V-8 engine under the hood of the XE or XF anytime soon. Save for the wild XE SV Project 8, of course. Road & Track reported on Wednesday that the decision partially rests on production volumes. Ian Callum...

  • 2018 Jaguar F-Type
    2018 Jaguar F-Type first drive review: fulfilling the mission

    If there was ever a reason to save $10,000—that’s the price premium Jaguar charges for a V-6 over a turbo-4 F-Type—this is it. For 2018, Jaguar has stuffed its new 2.0-liter turbo-4 under the F-Type’s long hood to create a new entry-level model, one that perhaps best...

  • Jaguar XE SV Nurburgring record

    Jaguar said on Tuesday that a specially prepared version of its XE compact luxury sedan—a model that's earmarked for production—lapped Germany's famous Nürburgring Nordschleife in a record-breaking 7:21.23. That's the fastest time ever posted for a production-intent sedan, the automaker touted at a press event on the sidelines of the Los Angeles auto show. The previous record-holder was the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, at a still-blistering 7:32 set last year. The fastest four-door to lap the 12.9-mile circuit remains a heavily modified Subaru WRX STI Type RA NBR race car...

    Jaguar is testing prototypes for a high-performance version of its F-Pace SUV. The prototypes resemble the current F-Pace S, but it’s easy to spot their new, much more aggressive front fascia design. The stock F-Pace S exhaust tips have also made way for a more aggressive quad-tip...

    Jaguar targeting 4-door Nürburgring record with XE SV Project 8?

    Jaguar this week was out testing its limited-edition XE SV Project 8 at the Nürburgring. Since the car has already been revealed—it was formally presented during June’s 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed—there are suggestions Jaguar might have been attempting to challenge the...

  • 2015 Jaguar XKR

    Sports cars are great for making a statement but they don’t often make good business sense. That’s why you’re seeing strange partnerships like the one between BMW and Toyota for the joint development of a new generation of their respective Supra and Z4 sports cars. Going it alone is just too risky, it seems. Given this premise, it’s not surprising that Jaguar chose not to renew its XK after the most recent model ceased production in 2014. The company already has the F-Type which tops out at approximately $125,000. An XK would have to go into even higher territory...

    The new Jaguar XF Sportbrake towed a skier 117 mph

    It's wonderful news that Jaguar is bringing a wagon over to our shores. We don't have enough longroof options here in the States, so the arrival of the XF Sportbrake is very welcome. It certainly helps that this particular model is also rather sharp looking. Also, as a Jaguar, it's quite capable of...

    Jaguar I-Pace electric car gets its own race series

    Jaguar is breaking new ground with one of the world’s first race series for a production-based electric car. We wouldn’t call it the first race series of its type, as a series using Tesla Model S-based racecars has already been announced, though this doesn’t at all diminish what...
