Racing Legends Rate Project 8 a 10

Unleashing the baddest street-legal Jag ever produced

If you wanna test your performance machine properly, you’re gonna need a racing driver or two. And that’s exactly what Jaguar did with its new XE SV Project 8, putting the pumped-up four-door through its paces at the Goodwood Motor Circuit last month. The results were captured in the following short video.

Jaguar Plans To Cook Up The Project 9; It Just Doesn't Know What It's Going to Be

Jaguar Plans To Cook Up The Project 9; It Just Doesn’t Know What It’s Going to Be

There’s no timetable yet for the follow-up to the Project 8

Following the success of the Jaguar Project 7 and Project 8, Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations is already working on its latest creation. Nothing is known about the car at the moment, but John Edwards, the boss of SVO, said that it’s coming. That should be good news to those who were left out on getting the F-Type based Project 7 when it was released in 2014 and the XE-based Project 8, which arrived last year.

Jaguar Kills Off the XE S, XF S, and the V-6 That Powers Them, Possibly Opening The Door For An Ingenium Inline-Six

A new powerplant could be just over the horizon…

Word has it the Cat Badge is ditching its current supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 in the U.K., citing tightening emissions regulations and poor sales as major contributing factors in its demise. In its stead, it’s looking likely Jaguar will introduce a new, more efficient straight-six.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2018 Jaguar F-Pace SVR

Jaguar introduced the F-Pace compact luxury crossover back in 2015 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, eventually bringing it stateside in May of 2016. Lauded by critics as both beautiful and opulent (and when equipped with a supercharged V-6, pretty quick too), the F-Pace is the right machine for a segment overflowing with demand. Now, Jag’s first-ever SUV gets the go-faster treatment courtesy of JLR’s performance and customization division, Special Vehicle Operations (SVO).

Jaguar Drops Plans for an XE SVR, Leaving the Project 8 as the only XE to Sport a V-8 Engine

Jaguar Drops Plans for an XE SVR, Leaving the Project 8 as the only XE to Sport a V-8 Engine

Just like that, tears swelled up in the eyes of millions

Despite all the rumors that it was going to happen, Jaguar is not building the V-8-powered XE SVR. The supposed model was generating a lot of hype because of all the speculation surrounding it, but a new report from Car and Driver is popping that balloon. The Jaguar XE SVR is not happening, folks. That leaves the limited run XE Project 8 as the only XE model to feature a V-8 engine.

Jaguar's Plans for a J-Pace Flagship SUV are Taking Shape as Ian Callum Takes Aim at the Porsche Cayenne and Mercedes GLS

Jaguar’s Plans for a J-Pace Flagship SUV are Taking Shape as Ian Callum Takes Aim at the Porsche Cayenne and Mercedes GLS

If it happens, the so-called J-Pace will sit above the F-Pace in Jag’s SUV pecking order

Jaguar’s plan to launch a bigger SUV to sit above the F-Pace is taking shape. A new report from Autocar reveals that there’s more to the rumor than what we previously thought. Apparently, the model already has a yet-to-be-confirmed name — J-Pace — and a tentative launch timetable of 2021. Once it’s out, the model is expected to sit above the F-Pace and serve as Jag’s flagship SUV.

The Jaguar F-Pace SVR Just Rendered the Upcoming BMW X3 M Obsolete

The Jaguar F-Pace SVR Just Rendered the Upcoming BMW X3 M Obsolete

And trumps the remaining competition

Do you remember how long it’s been since BMW enthusiasts have been asking for an M version of the X3? Me neither. Yes, it’s been that long. Heck, the X3 nameplate goes back to 2003, and I’m pretty sure that demand for an M model began to gain traction as soon as BMW launched the X5 M in 2010. So that’s at least eight years. Well, BMW finally confirmed that an X3 M will happen within the current generation, but I’m starting to think that BMW should give up on that idea. And the reason for that is called the Jaguar F-Pace SVR.

Same SUV, souped-up speed to boot

Jag introduced its first-ever SUV, also known as the F-Pace, at the Detroit Auto Show in 2015, bringing head-turning British good looks, high-end luxury, and a decent wallop under the hood as well. Now, there’s even more performance hotness on deck, as rumor has it Jag is gearing up for the reveal of the go-faster F-Pace SVR at the 2018 New York International Auto Show, bringing along more power, new styling, and other tuned-up goodies to match the badge on the trunk.

Watch the Jaguar I-Pace Kick the Hell out of the Tesla Model X

Watch the Jaguar I-Pace Kick the Hell out of the Tesla Model X

We don’t really put too much stock on this test

Jaguar believes that the I-Pace is the new benchmark among all-electric SUVs. It certainly makes a good case by the numbers, but does it really have the performance chops to beat the established king of the segment, the Tesla Model X? Jaguar tried to find out by lining up the I-Pace against two versions of the Model X —the 75D and the 100D — in an old-fashioned 0-60-0 mph test. The objective is to beat the other car to 60 mph and then brake completely back to a standstill in the shortest distance possible.

Predictably, the 394-horsepower and 512-pound-foot I-Pace beat the 328-horsepower and 387-pound-foot Model X 75D in the test, outpacing the Tesla by a full car-length to 60 mph before watching the Model X overshoot its braking. No surprises here, and we’re actually surprised that Jaguar put the 75D variant against the I-Pace considering the disparity in power and performance figures between the two models. For the record, the I-Pace can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds while the Model X 75D can do it in 4.9 seconds. The result is believable, even if we were snickering as we were watching it.

The 100D, on the other hand, offered a more serious challenge, or so we thought. Despite achieving a 4.7-second, 0-to-60-mph time, the Model X 100D still lost handily to the I-Pace by half a car’s length. We’re not sure if there were some shenanigans on Jaguar’s part, but we wouldn’t be surprised if there were. Automakers typically resort to tactics to promote their own model in comparison tests so it wouldn’t be shocking if Jag did a few eye winks along the way. The thing is, it probably didn’t need to because the I-Pace is impressive enough in its own right.

Care to bet that a response from Tesla is on the way?

Could Jaguar Have A Mystery Unveiling Planned At Goodwood?

Could Jaguar Have A Mystery Unveiling Planned At Goodwood?

A mysterious XJ variant will be making an appearance at Lord March’s estate

Count Jaguar in as one of the many automakers that will be in attendance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. It’s not exactly ground-breaking news though, is it? Well, it appears that Jag isn’t coming to Lord March’s estate empty-handed as rumors are circulating that the company is coming with a new version of its XJ sedan.

Now, this isn’t actually a rumor in the traditional sense because Jaguar itself announced such plans. What’s been left in the dark is what kind of version of the XJ this mysterious model is going to be. The only thing Jag hinted at is that it will be a new “derivative” of the luxury sedan and that it will use the Festival of Speed’s famous Hill Climb event to complete its final testing phase. Other than that, we’re left to our own imaginative devices to speculate on what derivative of the XJ this model is going to be. Could it be a new performance-oriented XJR? Maybe something out of Jag’s SVO division to sit alongside the XE SV Project 8? There’s also the possibility that with the current generation XJ nearing its life cycle, Jag might be developing this mystery XJ as a last hurrah of sorts - like perhaps an ultra luxurious final edition model? There are plenty of different directions that this mysterious XJ could go so predicting what it’s bringing to the table at Goodwood will likely amount to nothing. We’ll know the answer soon enough.

2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake

2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake

The British midsize wagon returns and it’s coming to America!

Introduced in 2007 to replace the ageing S-Type, the Jaguar XF was redesigned for the 2016 model year. The makeover brought an evolutionary restyling but turned the four-door sedan in a sportier proposition on the outside and a more luxurious vehicle on the inside. The XF also received new drivetrains, most notably the company’s recently launched 2.0-liter four-cylinder in both gasoline and diesel formats. The 3.0-liter V-6 was also carried over, but with significant upgrades. Unlike the first-generation model, the second-gen XF arrived without a wagon version. This changed for the 2018 model year when Jaguar launched a redesigned XF Sportbrake.

Making things that much better, it’s available in the U.S. too!

The Sportbrake’s return is a bit surprising, especially since Ian Callum, Jaguar’s director of design, once predicted the death of the station wagon. But, while I’d like to know what made him change his mind, I’m actually glad that the Sportbrake is back in dealerships and especially in the U.S., where the midsize market was limited to just two models, with a couple more available in other niches. Sure, it’s still ridiculous, but with three different products in the premium market, we finally have some proper action going on.

Jaguar F-Type by B&B Automobiltechnik

Jaguar F-Type by B&B Automobiltechnik

German tuner presents plenty of tuning options for Jag’s resident performance ride

The Jaguar F-Type has been called many things, and as the ultimate sports car in the Jaguar family, it bears a lot of responsibility to make a good impression on the auto industry. To Jag’s credit, it prepared the F-Type to do just that and a lot of people have taken notice. That includes the tuning world, as is the case with German tuner B&B Automobiltechnik, which has a new tuning program for the F-Type. This kit is as extensive as they come as it offers plenty of engine upgrade packages for three different variants of the F-Type. The range-topper of the lot, the F-Type SVR, headlines the list with a package that brings an output of 645 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque.

In addition, B&B is also offering engine upgrade packages for the F-Type V8 S and the F-Type R with each program designed to net more power and performance out of the Jag sports car. Chassis and suspension modifications are also being offered, as is a new set of 21-inch wheels. All of these upgrades meet a certain standard that we’ve come to know from B&B Automobiltechnik.

Owners of the F-Type should take note of what B&B Automobiltechnik is offering for the Jaguar F-Type. As the face of the British automaker’s performance lineup, the F-Type and all of its variants have to live up to the expectations that have been set for it. These upgrades from B&B help Jag meet those expectations.

2017 Jaguar F-Pace – Driven

2017 Jaguar F-Pace – Driven

Jaguar jumps into the crossover craze

Back in 2000 when BMW launched the X5, brand loyalists and German enthusiasts call heresy. How could BMW stoop to this? BMW is all about being “the ultimate driving machine.” Well, the naysayers kept taking hits as Audi, Porsche, and other non-SUV-type automakers jumped into the category. Now for 2017, Jaguar is taking the leap.

The F-Pace isn’t some solid-axle, old-school SUV, however. No, Jaguar designed the F-Pace using as much lightweight aluminum and high-strength materials as possible. It’s the same type construction found in Jaguar’s XE and XF sedans. In fact, a third of the F-Pace is made from a propriety aluminum alloy blended together from 75 percent recycled materials.

Inside, the crossover takes after the XE sedan. Fit and finish are all spot-on Jaguar, with all the familiar controls and digital interfaces. The F-Pace isn’t’ without its flaws, however, but I’ll get into that later.

One thing that’s not flawed is the F-Pace’s 3.0-liter supercharged V-6. Yep, it’s the same V-6 found in the F-Type – the F-Pace’s spiritual brother. The V-6 pumps out 380 horsepower in this optional tune. The standard tune dials back the all-aluminum mill to 340 horsepower. And as you can guess, Jaguar wants you to associate the F-Pace with the F-Type. It’s that air of sportiness marketing types want to convey.

So what’s it like to live with the F-Pace for a week? Keep reading to find out.
