The new Jaguar F Type y 2014, true to its name, is a stunning car that’s exhilarating to drive; more so if you’re hitting the open road. Car experts have described the mean machine as powerful yet graceful. The British roadster is positioned to go up against the Porsche supercars – the 911 and the Boxster – in price and performance. While the F-Type has a longer wheelbase than a Porsche 911 2012 model, overall it is a tad shorter than the German car. Both the Jaguar and Porsche catch the eye when they speed by.
The new Jaguar F Type y 2014 is like a curvy woman you’d want to flaunt to friends. There’s more than meets the eye to the luxury car though. Now if you have the hots for the brutish 2014 Jaguar F-Type V8 S and have cash to spare, be prepared for an elevated driving experience.
The F-type was introduced in 2012 at the Paris Motor Show. The show & go new Jaguar F Type y 2014 has a lightweight/lean aluminum construction (compared to other Jaguar models) and interiors that border more on practicality (clearly emphasizing road focus) rather than luxury. Luxury car drivers used to amenities like voice command and flawless audio will be disappointed that the luxury car falls short in these aspects.
The premium feel remains, nonetheless. The F-Type’s car’s cockpit, though classy-looking, may appear like a jumble of dials, buttons, and various textures. Some car aficionados have noted the deeper trunks of other luxury supercars like the Porsche 911.
It’s interesting to note, however, that the Jaguar F-Type convertible bagged the 2013 World Car Design of the Year. The Jaguar F-Type Coupé, which complements the F-Type, F-Type S and F-Type V8S convertibles, was enhanced to accommodate more stuff.
It can be said, that with the top down the new Jaguar F Type y 2014 is joy to drive. Throw in some added options like firesand orange metallic paintwork, black exterior trim to further enhance the bodywork, and 20-inch Cyclone black wheels (to name a few add-ons) and you have one eye-riveting kitty that’ll thrive in the sports car jungle.
The Jaguar F breed comes in various trim levels — the F-Type, F-Type S and F-Type V8 S. The base type is powered by a V-6 engine, while the R version is equipped with a V8. The base type is thrilling for most sports car buffs. The V8 S model, however, transforms the kitty into a roaring predator.
The V6 configuration cranks out 340 horsepower. On the other hand, the V8 S model offers a roadster ride like no other with the superb force-fed 5.0-liter AJ V8 that produces 488 horsepower. The F-Type V8 S features several upgrades. It’s a beautiful piece of work and not at all complicated.
The Jaguar F-Type borrows the system of the XF and XJ. The new Jaguar F Type y 2014 has more aggressive detailing, while retaining the trademark Jaguar face. Jaguar is noted for its supercharged powerplants, and the Jaguar F Type lives up to the car maker’s tradition of excellence.
You’d expect a sports car that mesmerizes on the track to falter on imperfect roadways, but the new Jaguar F Type y 2014 impresses.
The letters GT stands for the phrase grand tourer or the more popular Italian phrase gran turismo. These letters are oftentimes added to vehicle names to signify that they are built for performance or high speed driving. Many vehicle manufacturers sought to add these letters to their vehicles since vehicles bearing these letters usually have a lot of sales. However, it is not easy to create a vehicle that can bear the GT insignia. Grand tour vehicles are very powerful and are characterized as having high quality performance parts. One example is the Jaguar XKR-S GT.
The Jaguar XKR-S GT is a grand tourer that is the latest in the XK series of grand tourers released by Jaguar. The XK series are known for their spirited performance and long distance driving. The XKR-S GT is currently the fastest and most performance centred vehicle that Jaguar has produced for this series. Sporting the best engine that Jaguar can get their hands on, the XKR-S GT offers top-notch performance and unparalleled power on the road.
The Jaguar XKR-S GT features a supercharged V8 engine rated at 550 horsepower. The engine is capable of exerting 502 foot pounds of torque. The engine can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in only 4.2 seconds and can reach a maximum speed of 186 miles per hour. The XKR-S GT also features an electronic active differential that automatically detects wheel spins and grip levels to keep the car stable on any surface. There is also a high performance braking system that provides a progressive and powerful braking performance. Another feature of this vehicle is its adaptive dynamics system which enhances its sporting response. Aside from these, the XKR-S GT also features an aerodynamically designed carbon fibre body as well as lowered suspension with forged parts.
The Jaguar XKR-S GT is recognizable from other XK vehicles since it features large intakes on its hood. The intakes improve the car’s performance at high speeds because it improves stability. The car has an aerodynamic body that is built using carbon fibre as the main material. This combination maximizes the potential of the vehicle to attain maximum acceleration since the design of the body minimizes air drag while the carbon fibre material reduces the overall weight of the vehicle. Carbon fibre is also used on the rear spoiler, rear air diffuser, and front splitter further reducing the weight of the vehicle.
The Jaguar XKR-S GT was met with praise when it was first unveiled to the public. Many people praise the performance of the car saying that it is worthy of bearing the GT letters on its name. The performance of this vehicle is considered as belonging to the top tier of GT class vehicles. The overall performance of this vehicle is being compared to vehicles of luxury brands such as Ferrari and Lamborghini. The Jaguar XKR-S GT surely made a name for itself when it demonstrated how precise engineering can result to a vehicular wonder. Many people will surely remember the XKR-S GT and will look forward to its future iterations.
The Jaguar XJ6 first appeared in September 1968 and it was considered as being the best sedan on the market. Not only that it was smooth and fast, but also comfortable and impressing. The car had leather upholstery and power assisted steering and all these for the standard version. The car has a 2.8 L De Luxe engine and there were also 4.2 L models that also offered air conditioning as an optional extra.
The car had a Model 8 automatic transmission system and that was replaced in 1970 with a Borg Warner Model 12 unit. The new transmission system was definitely better because it had three different forward positions which could be accessed via the selector lever.
This is how oriented drivers were able to hold lower ratios at higher revs and they managed to achieve better acceleration. The new system also improved shift quality.
The car was an extremely popular one at that time and its price was somewhere around $5000. You were able to choose the color that you wanted for your car, but the majority of such vehicles were grey.
The interior was a simple but stylish one and the leather upholstery was able to make it look very modern and unique. The seats were comfortable and spacious enough to feel amazing while driving.
The Jaguar XJ6 was able to reach a top speed of 140 mph and for that decade you can consider it a very fast car.
Until 1973, when the next series appeared, they modified this version until they managed to add a 5.2 L engine which definitely improved the features of this amazing car. There were a lot of satisfied customers and Jaguar managed once again to prove that it has a very important word to say when it comes to the automobiles world.
Nowadays the specifications of the car may not seem perfect but you must take into consideration the year when this car fist appeared and the huge evolution that it had among years. You can now find the ultimate version of this car which was produced is 2012 and you are going to discover a whole new design and some incredible technical specification.
Jaguar XJ6 is definitely a pioneer when it comes to elegant and beautiful cars but it is going to remain in many people’s minds as being their first car or their favorite one.
The new single seater from Jaguar is based on the new F Type with D Type inspired fairing and it is going to be released at Goodwood this weekend. The mechanics worked for four months in order to go from experimental sketch to an amazing fully functional sport car.
The Project 7 concept is now ready for a spectacular debut which seems to be pretty impressive especially if you are a fan of such cars. The vehicle is a roofless F-Type and it has a rollover hoop, bespoke carbon fiber elements (such as side skirts, rear spoiler, front splitter, rear diffuser, hood bents and even side louvers), a lower windshield, and completely new front bumpers.
When it comes to unique design features we must mention the C-X16-inspired carbon and aluminum wing mirrors which are definitely bold and interesting. The new nose design can totally change the aspect of the car and it has a revised air intakes. The 20 inch Blade alloys with carbon fiber inserts are also special and they can improve the final design.
The name of the car is not randomly chosen. Jaguar has seven Le Mans victories and they decided to celebrate this by naming this amazing vehicle Project 7. They coated it in blue paint reminiscent of the 56/57 winning D type.
The interior of the car has a unique design and even if it is a single seat car it looks very comfortable and stylish. The seat is lowered by 30 mm and instead of a passenger seat they added a helmet holder. The car has four point racing harness and custom trim.
Its features are impressive ones. The car has a 5.0 liter supercharged V8 which can produce up to 550 hp and 502 lb-ft. They have managed to bring a 55 hp and 41 lb-ft increase on the F Type V8 S. The transmission system is based on an eight speed Quickshift box which can send all the power to the rear wheels. The free flow exhaust is finished in ceramic which is definitely an advantage, not to mention the fact that it can offer you a 10 mm lower ride height and amazing suspension setup.
This car has the potential of becoming the star of the Festival and we can’t wait to see it in action. One thing is for sure, its aspect is a magnificent one and its performances are able to please even the most demanding drivers.
A little while ago, Jaguar has announced its plans to introduce the track-focused but road-legal 2014 XKR-S GT. The vehicle has been showcased at the New York Auto Show this year and it is expected to be part of Jaguar’s future performance lineup.
Developed by the company’s Engineered to Order (ETO) division, the XKR-S GT boasts an aggressive exterior that features a carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber canards and carbon fiber wheel arch spats. Furthermore, the ride also received a ventilated hood, a carbon fiber diffuser and a massive rear wing. Last but not least, on the styling side, the ride showcases a set of 20-inch lightweight alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli Corsa tires, 255/35 front and 305/30 rear.
The exterior theme carries over to the interior where we can find leather / Alcantara sport seats, red contrast stitching, aluminum paddle shifters and unique sill plates.
Under the bonnet, the modified Jag has a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that generates 550 HP – 404 kW and 680 Nm (501 lb-ft) of torque. All that power goes to the rear wheels thanks to a six-speed automatic transmission and an active electronic differential. This makes the XKR-S GT sprint from 0 to 100 Km/h (62 mph) in around 4 seconds, before reaching an electronically limited top speed of 300 Km/h (186 mph).
The vehicle also received a sport-tuned suspension with revised bushings and new adaptive dampers with a “race-derived twin spring system.” If you’re wondering what’s stopping this Jag on steroids, the engineers also fitted a new traction control system on the ride, along with an improved steering system and a carbon ceramic braking system with discs that measure 398mm front / 380mm rear.
It’s been a while since this beautiful Jaguar has been in the spotlights. This time, the Jaguar XJ220 depicted here has been modified by the Bulgarian aftermarket specialist Overdrive, who has done a wonderful job refreshing this classic British supercar.
On the exterior, the rare early-Nineties Jag received a chameleon paint job with a subtle blend of green, brown and gold. Other notable exterior mods include carbon-fiber exterior tips from its fellow Eastern Europeans Akrapovic and a set of custom-made LED headlights. Notably, the rear LED lights were borrowed directly from a Ferrari 599.
As a reminder, the XJ220 packs a 3.5-litre V6 engine arranged in a rear mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. The original vehicle was built by Jaguar in collaboration with Tom Walkinshaw Racing, as Jaguar Sport, between 1992 and 1994. There’s no word on the vehicle’s performance figures or if the engine was modified, but the stock version used 542 HP – 404 kW and 644 Nm of torque to reach the 100 Km/h (62 mph) mark in less than 4 seconds. It could also reach a a top speed of 343 km/h (213 mph).
To complement the look, the XJ220 was fitted with a set of 19-inch alloys wheels in the front and 20-inch in the back, courtesy of ADV.1. The interior was upholstered in carbon-fiber, leather and Alcantara, and last but not least, it received a Ground Zero sound system and McIntosh player.
If you have not heard of Jay Leno and his passion for cars you probably live in a cave or have been abducted by aliens who’ve released you just now. Jay’s garage or as Alladin’s cave, a place full of treasures. Here you will find both new cars and old cars and perhaps brand names which you have never heard. We will try in this article to stop on 5 models each interesting in its own way.
1918 Cadillac Type 57 Victoria
Although it is now a respectable old lady Cadillac Type 57 Victoria still has original paint and most interesting, has preserved the original wooden wheels. It may seem outdated now and devoid of all modern gadgets but remember that this little gem has occurred during the period when Woodrow Wilson was president and World War I had only begun for U.S a year earlier.
1928 Bugatti Type 37A
Yes, Bugatti, this is the same company that owns Veyron. As you can see, a company with tradition which from the beginning has produced fast and powerful cars. You might think that the past years have softened the car, but Bugatti Type 37A it is far from being tired. Held at the beginning by Pierre Veyron this car raced on tracks in its time and from what do we know still cope admirably at the present times. Surely not as safe and manageable like a car from today but certainly a sure way to make your heart beat faster while driving with a happy grin on your face.
1925 Doble Steamer
Yes a steam engine car. Completely disappeared from the streets now these cars were a model of ingenuity in their time. No lower than gasoline cars, the steam cars were capable of performing amazing sometimes. Producing 1,000 lb-ft of torque this 1925 Doble Steamer, received some improvements ( the most important was the steam condenser made from aerospace materials that can bear temperatures up to 6,000 degrees). Aerospace materials and classic cars. I love and hate the combination..
1954 Jaguar XK120
The kind of car that caused the spark of passion for Jay. A car for aristocrats or for the rich. A smash hit in its time, Jaguar XK120 received accessories and an image worthy of a spoiled prince. Even if it was not one of the most reliable cars, was certainly one of the most desirable. All you need: british accent, costume, fat bank account and of course a lady who loves vintage stuff. And that car of course. More than 50 years after its debut still remains popular within collectors world.
1938 Hispano-Suiza Dubonnet Xenia
One of the rarest cars on earth. Would be easier to find a diamond in the street than to see that car running the streets. Also one of the most expensive cars in the world. Just look at it and after that stop drolling. Hand-built coachwork by Jacques Saoutchik that car was the starship Enterprise of her time. Gorgeous design, fluid futuristic accents, the “Dubonnet suspension” for comfortable travels and above all, admiration from all who pass along. I don’t know what you would do, but If I had 10 Ferrari I would give them all for this car. Take my girlfriend, take my money, take my car, take my house and just let me have that car.
Mercedes, what have you done? Autocar recently reported that Jaguar’s global brand director, Mr. Adrian Hallmark has hinted the possibility of Jaguar building a XFR Sportbrake.
In a recent interview given to Autocar, Mr. Hallmark said the model would be an “interesting project”, however the use of the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that develops 510 HP – 375 kW and 625 Nm of torque could prove to be a challenge. As the executive explained “It would be tricky to re-engineer the self-leveling rear suspension to cope with the high performance of such an engine.”
Despite the difficulties, Hallmark hinted that it would be “interesting” to have a limited production run of 300 to 400 units.

It seems that Jaguar doesn’t want just anyone to take hold of its beautiful C-X75. The vehicle has officially been axed by the British company with officials stating that building the concept doesn’t seem like such a good idea given the current global economic crisis.
Furthermore, Jaguar’s global brand director, Mr. Adrian Hallmark said that despite this move, Jaguar will develop five working prototypes until May. One of the cars will be kept by the company for running demonstrations, another will go into a future Jaguar museum and the other three will be sold at auction. This might also be a marketing move from Jaguar given the awesome design and the futuristic technology featured by the C-X75.
As a reminder, the C-X75 will boast a supercharged and turbocharged 4-cylinder 1.6-liter engine that in tandem with two electric motors. The combined output of the hybrid system is around 500 HP – 373 kW and, according to Jaguar, the ride can do the 0 to 100Km/h sprint in less than three seconds, reaching a top speed of more than 200 mph (322 km/h).
In 20 years, the price tag on these rides will double for sure.
