JAGUAR MAGAZINE NEWEST IS OUT IN DIGITAL AND IN HARD COPY

Our main business is to get a new Jaguar Magazine out six times per year, but for unexpected reasons – we are late with #189 and I apologise.

We will be back on track though for the final one of 2017.

However, edition #189 is now available in digital at Magzter, will in the shops next week – or is at our website (www.jaguarmagazine.com) where you can have it delivered to you anywhere in the world.

In edition #189 we have 10 feature pages on the Goodwood Revival, the Hampton Court Concours d’Elegance and other events which Ron Gaudion attended this year with ex-Works and Ecurie Ecosse D-Type XKD603 owner Clive Beecham.  The rest of the world now knows the unique Australian who built two of the three Le Mans winning D-Types, and prepared and crewed ALL of the Le Mans winning D-Types!  You can meet the very fit and healthy 88 year old star.

We spent a week with the six cylinder supercharged F-Type R-Dynamic Coupe and tell you what we thought of it.

It is 25 years since the XJ220 went into production.  We celebrate the milestone and bring you information on the model you probably didn’t know.

… and what about a brand new all-aluminium Lightweight E-Type, with a wide angle head, dry sumping and all of the other right bits – but built for road use.  We spent time in that one too and give you our impressions.

Plus Pebble Beach, remembering the man who invested Jaguar Land Rover’s revolutionary self-piercing revet – and lots more.

… AND RADICAL SUVS COMING FROM JAGUAR AND LAND ROVER – Autocar

Design bosses at both Land Rover and Jaguar see merit in more models wearing the new SVX badge for extreme off-roaders, following last month’s launch of the Discovery SVX.

The SVX badge is the work of Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations unit, which is designed to signify the most off-road-focused variants.

Land Rover design boss Gerry McGovern has told Autocar that the new badge would be appropriate for Discovery models and “arguably Defender” when that launches later in the decade , but less so for a Range Rover.

Jaguar design director Ian Callum, who gave the E-Pace SUV a public debut at the September show, has said the badge could be possible on a Jaguar too.

“We don’t talk a lot about the [off-road] ability of our cars because they’re road-biased,” he explained. “But they could have that capability as we have the tech in the group. I see the opportunity – if Land Rover can do SVR, we can do SVX.”

The toughness of the Discovery SVX also helps fill the gap in the Land Rover range before the new Defender is launched, according to McGovern. The “ultimate capability machine will be Defender”, he said, but noted the Discovery is “equally capable”. He added: “This is doing that [job] until it arrives.”

McGovern revealed the plush premium execution of the Discovery SVX – what he described as “premium durability” – was a direction the Defender was likely to follow.

“We have to stop thinking about function in a durable way,” McGovern said. “When you’re buying into the brand, you’re buying a premium product.”

He highlighted that materials can be both premium and durable, such as the satin paint finish, and while the SVX badge had moved the Discovery in a more extreme direction, it had also made it more premium.

“It’s not cheap,” McGovern said. “There are sophisticated surfaces, the premium durability. You think of stripping down to basics [for extreme off-road vehicles] but I don’t think people want that any more.”

EDITION #186 IS NOW AVAILABLE

40

It is always good to get the next edition of Jaguar Magazine out, and #186 came out from the printer on Friday.

58

For those who subscribe it is in the mail already, and will reach shops by the end of next week – but before Easter.

Even I am amazed at how untold stories keep being published in ours.  In fact, when we started this magazine in 1984 I truly believed we would run out of stories after about 20 editions.

18

Fortunately, I was very wrong.

Some highlights in edition #186 are:

Living with the F-Pace 3.0 litre diesel

Bill Pitt – D-Type racer, and work’s ‘Mk1’ owner racer – Australia’s second Touring Car Champion

The earliest XJ-Ss – very collectable

The ‘Mk1’ gets the love and respect it deserves

The late-Archie Scott Brown’s fatal accident – and what became of his crashed VPP9?

Brigg Cunningham – exclusive images of his three works-built Long Nose D-Types rolled on one weekend in 1956.

An exclusive visit to Jaguar Heritage’s stored collection with brilliant images by Martin Dunning.

Buyer’s Guide to the X-Type.

XK150 restoration – next instalment.

Where’ Wally – Jaguar’s caught on camera in candid!

MORE SHOTS OF E-PACE -motor1.com

After arriving a little late to the crossover party, Jaguar is making up for lost time by preparing a pair of high-riding models. The I-Pace shows an eye towards the future with its fully electric drivetrain, and the E-Pace in these spy photos shows the British brand preparing a smaller CUV for the lineup.

This E-Pace remains under heavy camouflage in these photos, and fake panels distort the model’s shape. However, cues from its F-Pace big brother are evident in the broad grille and raked windshield. The panel boxing in the rear glass appears to conceal the crossover’s actual shape back there. It’s possible Jag’s smaller crossover could have a flowing rear like the I-Pace.

 These shots also let us see the interior, and the photographs show that there’s still a lot of work to finish in the cabin. Bundles of wires hang from the roof and have tape holding them to various components. The massive screen on the centre stack looks like an old computer monitor, too. Since the layout is so rough, it’s hard to draw any useful conclusions about the final vehicle.

Jaguar Land Rover’s Ingenium engine family will power the E-Pace. Buyers will be able to choose from various tunes of the 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder in diesel- and gasoline-fueled varieties. A hybrid might arrive later. The lowest trims in the lineup might be front-wheel drive, but some versions would route power to both axles.

The E-Pace should debut sometime this summer and be on sale in some markets before the end of the year. After the F-Pace’s easy time finding success, an even more affordable vehicle could be quite a hit. Look for JLR also to introduce the high-performance F-Pace SVR sometime before you need to replace the calendar. With an output reportedly around 500 horsepower on tap, it’ll give Jag a model for competing in the growing performance crossover segment.
