XJ27 CAME BEFORE THE XJ-S
Thought you knew all about the XJ-S?  Well, the first cars were built in 1973 and called XJ27s.  We tell the full story and find the first two cars ever built are surviving in Australia!

 

DRIVING THE ALL-ELECTRIC I-PACE

The I-Pace is probably the most exciting new Jaguar we have ever driven.  We explain why and share the joy.

DAVID HOBBS – EX-JAGUAR AND DAIMLER APPRENTICE

He might just be a man for all occasions!  David Hobbs’ parents came from Adelaide in South Australia, his father invented an automatic transmission and David started his working life with Jaguar and Daimler as an apprentice.  He is famous as a racer and a broadcaster, but there is much more to the charming Brit.

REIMS IS COMING BACK
When we first saw the old Reims track 29 years ago it was a decaying and pitiful decaying wreck.  Jaguar tested there and won many 12 Hour races with its C and D-Types in preparation for Le Mans.  Now a dedicated bunch of enthusiasts have taken it upon themselves to restore the grand place.

 

XK-R PORTFOLIO – BOUGHT NEW, SOLD AND BOUGHT BACK

What does an XK-R Portfolio limited edition model do for you?  You may not know, but a husband an wife team bought a new one.  They sold it to embrace a Land Rover, but missed it so much they found it and bought it back again.  They also found two more of just nine survivors in their country.

… plus much more.
