JAGUAR, LAND ROVER AND BMW TEAMING UP TO HELP EACH OTHER

Jaguar, which is partnered up with famous British SUV brand Land Rover, is reportedly working on tow compact SUVs with none other than BMW. That might sound like a weird choice, but quite a few other automakers have been leveraging Bimmer platforms for quite some time.

The rumoured new Jaguar SUVs are supposed to be compact, with one employing a “coupe” body style. They’re said to be using the BMW FAAR platform, which we know from the new BMW X1 and Mini Countryman.

BMW and Jaguar Land Rover have been collaborating already, including sharing engines, but this marks a new phase in that relationship. Perhaps just as shocking, this deal means Land Rover might be leveraging the BMW platform to launch a new entry-level SUV model.

It’s no secret that SUVs are hot, especially in the luxury market. With sales dipping, automakers are looking for any edge they can gain. And while Jaguar has been known for making luxurious, engaging cars, it’s looking to shift its lineup a little more toward SUVs.

These kinds of collaborations between automakers are going to become increasingly more common. The push toward cutting-edge technologies, plus increased competition globally is behind this trend.

JORDAN AND HIS GEMS AT PEBBLE BEACH

He is still young by most standards, immensely talented as a commercial pilot, engineer and entrepreneur while his father owns the Bathurst and Spa winning TWR XJ-S.

Not a bad profile!

Now Jordan Roddy is in California for the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and Monterey historic race meeting.

He is not on his own though and this is one of the four or five TWR V12 XJR-15s he has restored and/or rebuilt – while at the bottom level is the ex-David Brabham V12 Lamborghini racer he owns and has most recently totally restored.

We wish him well and look forward to the tales and images.

F-PACE SVR V8 SUPERCHARGED – STRIKE A LIGHT!!!

See if you can read the name on the bridge …

It has been embargoed until today, but a few days ago we had our first drive of the hero-worship thundering F-Pace SVR beautiful beast of a Jaguar – with an acceleration time of a whisker over just 4 seconds for 0-100 kmh from a standstill.

Yet it drives like a kitten when not being asked to perform with luxurious ride qualities you expect in any Jaguar.

It it totally re-engineered, and according to Jaguar heads at our meeting, unless you buy one to specific order, the F-Pace SVR is now built on the production to meet with demand.

This sight is enough to get you excited.

Amazingly, in line with Jaguar’s ethos harking back to Sir William Lyons’ success, this beauty sells for just two thirds of its key rivals – yet outperforms them!

The full report is being put together now for the next Jaguar Magazine …

FINDING THREE LONG LOST D-TYPES!!!

The Cunningham Long Nose D-Types with the team transporter and a Jack Endsley D-Type.

In edition #199 we break significant ground in a global sense by establishing the fates of three lost D-Types including XKD521 (8th at Sebring in 1956) and XKD503 which was the Ecurie Francorchamps D-Type which finished third at Le Mans in 1955!

There are three other cars involved into our investigation including the Cunningham team D-Type XKD525, which also went missing, but which we have found.

We will present the facts with images as well as historical research, and of course, at least one other D-Type as been ‘reborn’ after being scrapped.

This is as important to us as finding old masterpiece paintings, and just was exciting.

You will be intrigued too! It will be published in our next edition.
