Towards the end of 1959 Jaguar expanded its range of cars with the release of the new Mark II saloons. This provided a range of ten basic models which also offered a choice of transmissions and disc or drum brakes for the standard 2.4 and 3.8 saloons, XK150 series body styles and a wide range of exterior and interior colour schemes. The Jaguar range at that time comprised the large and luxurious 3.8-litre Mark IX saloon, the 2.4 and 3.4 standard saloons and the 3.4 XK150 and 150S as before,… Read more


Gotta love an old Jag. Kevin Taylor must have really liked his because he hung on to it for 55 years and it has been in the same family for 77 years. The gorgeous 1935 Swallow (Jaguar) SS1 ‘Airline’ Coupe is thought to be one of just a handful in Australia. Kevin passed away a few years ago, but it must stand as something of a record. To put the car in perspective, the company was originally named the Swallow Sidecar Company and built sidecars for motorcycles. It was founded… Read more


After spending a few days in one of Sydney’s wealthier harbourside suburbs, we were surprised to see few examples of Jaguar’s F-Pace. The company’s first and largest SUV ticks all the boxes, or so we thought. It’s stylish, pricey and with its long British lineage — what more could one want? Or so we pondered searching for a parking spot, on a long narrow street that was not wide enough for two vehicles to pass and which offered parking on one side only. A small city car starts to make… Read more

JAGUAR XJ 2010 – 2020

Though the body has ultra-modern styling, the interior has could be optioned with traditional leather-and-wood options – the best of both worlds that please the traditionalists who loved the original XJ models. There’s a nice wrap-around effect that carries the dash area neatly into the doors. So good is the shape of the 2010 Jaguar XJ that it’s largely unchanged nine years later. There were minor facelifts in 2014 and 2015, but show a non-car person a 2010 Jaguar saloon and tell them it’s a 2018 and they won’t doubt… Read more


As part of the recent Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, Jaguar displayed 15 classics – one of them a bespoke Jaguar E-Type. This car is a bit special because the customer wanted an E-Type from the same year that he was born, 1965. In fact, the car Jaguar found for him was built just two days shy of his birthday. It doesn’t get much better than that. The unique E-type made its debut alongside a selection of historically important Jaguar E- types, an all-electric I-PACE eTROPHY race car and seven convertible… Read more


Jaguar Land Rover has partnered with Pramac, a global leader in the energy sector, to develop a portable zero-emission energy storage unit powered by second-life Jaguar I- PACE batteries. Called the Off Grid Battery Energy Storage System, Pramac’s technology features lithium- ion cells from Jaguar I-PACE batteries taken from prototype and engineering test vehicles, supplies zero-emission power where access to the mains supply is limited or unavailable. Post-vehicle applications exist because Jaguar Land Rover’s batteries are engineered to the highest standards and can therefore be safely deployed in multiple low-energy… Read more

Jaguar Classic is bringing a strictly limited run of new C-type Continuations in celebration of the iconic model’s motorsport heritage, 70 years after it first raced to victory at the Le Mans 24 Hours. The C-type Continuation will be hand-built at Jaguar Classic Works in Coventry, to the specification of the 1953 ‘works’ C-types that dominated that year’s Le Mans 24 Hours, scoring the C-type’s second Le Mans win. The team at Jaguar Classic has painstakingly researched the C-type’s history for the Continuation’s exacting specification, bringing Jaguar’s heritage to life… Read more
