NEW F-TYPE ALL THE CHANGES

December 3, 2019

The two-seat sports car offers a perfect balance of performance and driver reward with an even more muscular, assertive design and a cabin defined by rich, luxurious materials and beautiful details.

The range of powerful, responsive engines includes four-, six- and eight-cylinder options*, all matched to eight-speed Quickshift transmissions with full manual control using either the SportShift gear selector or the steering wheel-mounted paddles. 

The new F-TYPE also offers more driver-focused technology, including a reconfigurable, high-definition, 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster, Touch Pro infotainment system, and Smartphone Pack with Apple CarPlay® as standard. Smartphone Pack also includes Android Auto and Baidu CarLife, depending on market applicability, as standard. Software-over-the-air functionality means future software updates can be made at the customer’s convenience without having to visit a Retailer. Two superb Meridian sound systems offer enhanced sound reproduction.

Design the most beautiful sports car, with purity, proportion and presence that’s unmistakably Jaguar: that was the challenge we set ourselves. The new F-TYPE is more dramatic than ever, with even greater clarity of purpose in every line, surface and feature, and embodies true Jaguar design DNA.

State-of-the-art technologies together with luxurious materials and finishes deliver beauty with purpose in an interior which will delight driver and passenger alike even before the engine starts and the journey begins. Jaguar has been making sports cars for more than 70 years, and that rich heritage has inspired the team to create something truly extraordinary.

NEW JAGUAR F-TYPE – DESIGN HIGHLIGHTS INFOGRAPHIC

F-TYPE’s award-winning design has evolved still further with a focus on even greater purity and discipline to the perfectly-sculpted form. Super-slim pixel LED headlights** with subtly updated signature ‘Calligraphy’ J daytime running lights, and sweeping direction indicators, blend perfectly into the ‘liquid metal’ surfacing of the new clamshell bonnet, exaggerating the car’s visual width and accentuating its assertive stance. The new front bumper and subtly enlarged grille deliver even more visual impact and presence.

NEW JAGUAR F-TYPE – DESIGN UPDATES

The interior combines traditional Jaguar craftsmanship with rich, contemporary materials such as Windsor Leather and satin-finish Noble Chrome. Beautiful details include monogram stitch patterns in the seats and door trims, Jaguar Leaper motifs in the headrests, and subtle ‘Jaguar Est.1935’ markings on the centre console finisher, glovebox release button surround, and seatbelt guides.

The 12.3-inch reconfigurable HD TFT instrument cluster offers a choice of different displays, including full map mode but, as befits a true sports car, the default mode is characterised by the large central rev counter. This feature and the gearshift light subtly convey the F-TYPE’s driver-focused character and performance potential.

Even before the drive begins, the F-TYPE delights the driver with the visual theatre of flush, deployable door handles and deployable air vents. Pressing the start button brings the car to life with its hallmark exhaust flare as purposeful as ever

All engines – 300PS turbocharged four-cylinder, 380PS supercharged V6 and 450PS and 575PS V8s – feature active exhaust systems, which are switchable either as an option or as standard. Customers who choose the 450PS or 575PS supercharged V8s benefit from the new Quiet Start function, which ensures a more subtle, refined sound – the electrically-actuated bypass valves in the rear silencer remain closed until they automatically open up under load. If desired, Quiet Start can be over-ridden by selecting Dynamic Mode or by pressing the switchable exhaust button before starting the engine.

The distinctive crackle and pop on the overrun synonymous with F-TYPE, remains, the sounds meticulously tuned to suit the range of powerful four-,six-, and eight-cylinder engines. Highly efficient, close-coupled particulate filters reduce emissions. 

The new F-TYPE is the definitive Jaguar sports car and continues to set the benchmark for design purity, driver engagement and reward, and a truly visceral driving experience – it makes every journey extraordinary.
Its timeless looks are more assertive than ever, technologies such as the high-definition virtual instrument cluster deepen the driver-focused feel of the interior, while the range of powertrains offers a breadth of choice unrivalled in the segment. Enthusiasts will appreciate the new F-TYPE R’s 575PS supercharged V8, enhanced chassis and intelligent all-wheel drive system, which deliver truly outstanding performance in all conditions while retaining its inherent tractability and usability.

ALAN VOLKAERTS
VEHICLE LINE DIRECTOR, JAGUAR F-TYPE

The new 450PS supercharged V8 has been developed to offer exploitable and rewarding performance – its maximum torque of 580Nm being generated from just 2,500rpm. It is offered with a choice of all-wheel drive and – for purists – rear-wheel drive. Both versions can accelerate from 0-60mph in just 4.4 seconds, and reach a maximum speed of 177mph.

Raising the output of the all-wheel drive F-TYPE R’s supercharged V8 to 575PS and 700Nm (up from 550PS and 680Nm respectively) delivers truly outstanding performance in all weathers and in all conditions, while retaining its inherent tractability and day-to-day usability. Performance is exceptional: the benchmark sprint to 60mph takes just 3.5 seconds, while maximum speed is an electronically-limited 186mph.

The F-TYPE R’s increased power is matched to a comprehensively uprated chassis with new, wider, 20-inch, 10-spoke wheels in Gloss Black with contrast Diamond-Turned finish, and new adaptive dampers, springs, anti-roll bars and stiffer rear knuckles and ball joints, delivering even greater agility and responsiveness.

Taking all of the learning accrued from the development of the limited-edition, 200mph Jaguar XE SV Project 8, the Quickshift transmissions in both the new F-TYPE R and the 450PS V8 models have been meticulously recalibrated for a more engaging driving experience. The new F-TYPE R specifically offers even faster, crisper gear changes when the driver commands shifts manually via the steering wheel-mounted paddles or the SportShift gear selector. Both upshifts and downshifts are more immediate and give an even more connected and responsive feel.

Customers also have the choice of the exclusive F-TYPE First Edition. Based on the
R-Dynamic models, the First Edition is offered for one model year only, and has refinements such as the Exterior Design Pack in contemporary Dorchester Grey and five-spoke, 20-inch wheels in Gloss Technical Grey with contrast Diamond-Turned finish, complementing the choice of Santorini Black, Eiger Grey or Fuji White paint.

The interior features 12-way Windsor Leather seats in Ebony with Light Oyster stitching, or Mars with Flame Red stitching. Other highlights include the instrument cluster wrapped in Alcantara with Monogram embossing, aluminium gearshift paddles, an Engine Spin centre console finisher with First Edition branding, and an Ebony Suedecloth headliner.

F-TYPE GETS A FULL MAKEOVER

December 3, 2019

The new Jaguar F-TYPE has completed its journey from sketchpad to showroom with a unique tour – in Hot Wheels® model form – of the Jaguar Design Studio.

The 1:64 scale sports car model, complete with perfectly recreated black and white camouflage wrap, navigated 25 loop-the-loops, three gravity-defying jumps and 44 corners along the 232-metre long Hot Wheels orange track laid out around the studio.

On the way, it raced from a design review of original sketches, past digital renderings, colour and materials samples and a clay model, revealing the details of new F-TYPE’s purposeful, beautiful and timeless design before coming to rest beside the real thing.

Julian Thomson, Design Director, Jaguar, said: “As a designer and huge car enthusiast, Hot Wheels models have been a part of my life since childhood. They capture the imagination, make owning the car of your dreams a reality, and give you the first opportunity to actually ‘drive’ a car.

“We are used to creating models in clay but seeing such a finely-detailed 1:64-scale model of the new F-TYPE race around the studio, showcasing every stage in our design process, was a truly unique experience.”

Working in close collaboration, designers from Jaguar and Hot Wheels used the CAD data of the real car to craft the precise 3D-printed model, recreating every beautiful detail of the new F-TYPE, including its striking new clamshell bonnet, distinctive super-slim Pixel LED headlights and more sculpted front and rear bumpers.

The Hot Wheels team also faithfully recreated the Velocity Blue colour from the SVO Premium Palette, and even hand-painted the F-TYPE badge on the back before the model was camouflaged ahead of its own ‘reveal’ in the film.

While the Hot Wheels model features a full interior, you need to step inside the life-size F-TYPE to truly experience the rich, luxurious materials such as Windsor Leather and Noble Chrome which define the new F-TYPE’s driver-focused cabin.

Beautiful details surround the occupants, such as the monogram stitching in the seats and door panels and ‘Jaguar Est. 1935’ markings in the glovebox release button surround – a subtle reference to the year when the Jaguar name was first used by company founder Sir William Lyons to brand one of his beautiful cars.

Where the model relied purely on gravity to accelerate it up to speed, the new Jaguar F-TYPE is available with a range of powerful and efficient engines: a 221kW turbocharged four-cylinder, 280kW supercharged V6, and a 423kW supercharged V8.

The latter is exclusive to the new F-TYPE R and, combined with all-wheel drive, delivers truly extraordinary performance in all gears and in all conditions.

Launching from 0-100 km/h takes just 3.7 seconds.

The tiny F-TYPE reached scale speeds of up to 482km/h (300mph) along the custom-built track which was designed and developed with the guidance of Official Hot Wheels master track designer Paul Schmid.

Bryan Benedict, Senior Manager of Product Design at Hot Wheels, said: “We’ve been working with Jaguar for over 40 years but this was an opportunity to do something really special with a car that was not yet on sale.

“To go behind the doors of the top-secret Jaguar Design Studio and work with the talented design team to bring this car to life and reveal it on our unmistakable orange and blue track was a unique opportunity.”

The state-of-the-art Jaguar Design Studio opened in September, bringing the entire design team into one purpose-built creative space for the first time in the marque’s 84-year history.

The most technologically-advanced design studio in the world, it features industry-leading modelling robotics, virtual reality, an 11-metre 4K powerwall, and has double the floor space of the previous site – allowing 20 full-size clay models to be worked on simultaneously.

Available to order now and priced from $126,400 in Australia.

* Pixel LED headlights are exclusively available on the F-TYPE R

200TH COMMEMORATIVE EDITION – AT LAST!

November 28, 2019

If you wondered why I have been quiet on the internet lately – it is simply because the huge workload it took to get the 200th edition of the Jaguar Magazine compiled, designed and off to the printer.

That happened today, so yes, it is away and also being uploaded onto the internet at Magzter – and here is a little sneak look at the major features.

They include ten pages as above highlighting the events, the people, the cars and the history we have privy to in the past 35 years.

Then there is the discovery of the museum-like best XJR-S in the world. It is one of the last V12 XJ-Ss built, has a six litre V12 engine and travelled less than 8000 kilometres.

We drive the newest updated XE saloon (a favourite of ours) and compare it to the previous model and the fire-breathing XE Project 8. The improvements and restyling cues are impressive.

There have been more than 23 S.S. Jaguar 100s in Australia since the late 1930s, and many of their sporting lives and pieces of history have either been forgotten or not recorded. We find the cars and bring them back to the now in images and words.

Bernard Rubin was one of the heroic Bentley Boys, and won Le Mans with Wolf Barnarto in 1928 – but did you know he was Australia and died just seven years later. How about the first Jaguar to ever cross the line at Le Mans after 24 hours of racing? That happened in 1950 and a works prepared XK120 owned and driven by Nick Haines came home 12th. He too was Australian and died young. Did you realise WO Bentley’s parents were from Adelaide? I am pretty sure you didn’t.

We pay our respects to them all and give them the credit they rightly deserve.

We uncovered the factory-owned two tone 1952 XK120 FHC loaned to Stirling Moss which is now for sale, so dig into its history.

Australian Scott Shearman owns Sir William Lyons luxurious former home, Wappenbury Hall. Scott invited us in and revealed his plans to make the place available for Jaguar lovers to enjoy also.

Our XK150 restoration reaches a climax with the body on the chassis, and now the engine and gearbox installed.

Every heard of an SS120? We have the first of what is planned to be many.

… and much much more is in edition #200 which will be up on Magzter any time now (Thursday Nov 28), and the printed magazine is out and in the mail within a week.

We will sell you a single #200 if you contact us at info@jaguarmagazine.com

COLLECTOR’S FINAL X351 TRADITIONAL XJ SALOONS

November 21, 2019

Here we are, a decade after the Jaguar XJ X351 debuted, and there is still no other large luxury sedan quite like it. Sure, it’s smaller inside and less automated than some competitors, yet when an XJ saunters by on the street, we covet this Jag just as longingly as we did during the depths of the 2009 recession. Very few modern cars look this fresh after three presidential elections.

But as you’ve no doubt heard, in the most radical switch since the XJ went all-aluminum in 2004, Jaguar will launch an all-electric XJ next year. So the current model is bowing out, gracefully, with the final 300 units coming exclusively to the U.S. as the XJ Collection. All of them will be XJL Supercharged models—the long-wheelbase cars heavily loaded with options and a 470-hp 5.0-litre V8.

There are badges on the boot, doorsills, and dash, 20-inch wheels from the short-wheelbase XJ, a choice of three exterior colors (white, black, or British Racing Green), and three interior colors (black, gray and dark gray, or tan and black). Only one wood, a gloss oak, adorns the interior, with a laser-etched inlay on the doors. There are no option packages aside from a heated windshield.

As a thank-you to Jaguar loyalists, the XJ Collection will be priced less than an XJL Supercharged – and it’s spec’d exactly the same way. The Jaguar has a limited-slip rear differential and remains one of the lightest vehicles in the segment, which we’ve felt every time testing one of these big Jaguars. Sharp handling is a long-lost trait among large sedans. How times have changed.

The XJ will carry on after 51 years in production, possibly in such a different form that we may never recognize where it came from. But as long as that car looks as good as this one does after 10 years, that’s fine by us.

JAGUAR TARGETS SLEEPING DRIVERS

November 19, 2019
Jaguar E-PACE global media drive, Corsica 2018

 From long working hours to daily school runs and the potentially stressful commute, Jaguar understands life for many is busier than ever. We’re so busy that 1 in 8 UK drivers admit to having fallen asleep at the wheel* – and this causes up to 25% of fatal accidents**.

As part of a wider vision to enrich and improve the lives of its drivers and passengers, Jaguar has developed a piece of technology, Driver Condition Monitor, which alerts the driver if it detects the tell-tale signs of drowsiness. The system takes inputs from thousands of data points, some of which are measured every thousandth of a second, including the Electronic Power Assisted Steering system, pedal inputs and general driving behaviour. Complex algorithms analyse all this to accurately determine whether a driver is becoming fatigued.

Fitted as standard on E-PACE and across the Jaguar range, Driver Condition Monitor detects if the driver is starting to feel drowsy and when required, provides an early warning to take a break. E-PACE’s instrument cluster displays a coffee-cup icon and sounds an alert when a prompt is needed.

Edmund King, Director of the AA Charitable Trust, said: “The statistics around drowsy drivers are shocking, even more so when you realise it is an under-reported issue. Any measure that helps reduce the risk of tired drivers, such as Jaguar’s Driver Condition Monitor, is to be welcomed. The only real cure for tiredness is to rest – if drivers feel tired, or are alerted to possible tiredness by their car, they should pull over at the next safe place, drink a caffeinated drink and take a short nap.”

David Willey, Assisted and Automated Driving Attributes Senior Manager, Jaguar, said: “At Jaguar, we continuously review the latest advances in vehicle safety and develop innovative technologies to improve the driving experience, making it safer and more enjoyable. Driver Condition Monitor, along with a range of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are offered as standard across the Jaguar range.”

“Our season six objective is to continue to make progress and to compete for more points, podiums and wins. With Mitch and James, we can look to build on the success of last season and push for more on-track success. We do not underestimate the task, we are up against the most competitive driver and team line up in the championship’s history but also in terms of current motorsport. As we head to Saudi Arabia, we are looking forward to the challenge and will be working hard to deliver a positive start to the season and to kick off our campaign well.”
Mitch Evans, #20:

“I am excited to head to Saudi Arabia and start our fourth season together. We’ve tasted success now and the plan is to keep pushing for more. We are really well prepared and we know it is going to be a big fight. Saudi Arabia is a challenging track, and it is a double header, so it is important we get off to a strong start to season six.” 
James Calado, #51:

“Heading to a track I’ve never visited in a race series completely new to me will be a big challenge, but one I’m really looking forward to. Testing has gone well but I can’t wait to get out on track and start racing in my first ever Formula E race. As one of the new drivers on the grid, I’m fully motivated And hope to surprise a few people in Saudi Arabia.”

JAGUAR LAND ROVER MAKES ANOTHER BREAKTHROUGH

November 5, 2019

 Jaguar Land Rover’s pioneering structural electronics research could allow dashboards to be replaced by curved screens and let drivers customise interiors thanks to colour-changing body panels.

In a world-first, Jaguar Land Rover is developing the Lightweight Electronics in Simplified Architecture (LESA) research technology – used in flexible wearables and curved OLED TVs – for car interiors. It has the potential to radically change cabins of the future and would offer customers greater ability to customise their cars to suit their needs.

With LESA technology, Jaguar Land Rover will be able to manufacture body panel displays to show information only when needed to help designers achieve streamlined and buttonless designs for future cars. Such designs may include, customisable interior ambient lighting systems, body controls, wraparound button-less dashboards and advanced fabric/leather heated steering wheels.

The innovative printed electronics system will also reduce the weight of in-car electronics by up to 60% as wiring, sensors and computing is contained within all non-metal materials, removing the need for extra packaging space for control units.

Features using the award-winning LESA technology would be created using a faster, simpler and more automated process, be more flexible in usage and offer technological advancements – such as making digital displays appear on surfaces like wood without the need for a screen. It also makes adding solar panels to the vehicle possible without adding extra system weight to car. The renewable power generated from the sun could then be used to recharge the battery.

The system uses computer animated drawings (CAD) to virtually “unfold” a part into its 2D structure. The required electronic circuit, ordinarily wired into a traditional ECU, is then printed onto the flat surface, and components are mounted, before the CAD is folded back into its original 3D. The part is then manufactured with the electronics printed into the structure.

Jaguar Land Rover has successfully trialled LESA technology on an overhead control panel prototype, achieving a weight reduction of 60% and minimising the part size from 50mm to 3.5mm. The research was awarded an Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Innovation Award with judges praising it as “the future of electronics in the car”.

The lightweighting benefits are a step towards Jaguar Land Rover’s vision for Destination Zero; an ambition to make societies safer and healthier, and the environment cleaner delivered through relentless innovation. By removing weight from the vehicle, future Jaguar and Land Rover models will benefit from increased electric range or improved fuel efficiency, helping to further the company’s goal of a zero emissions future.

Ashutosh Tomar, Jaguar Land Rover Electrical Research Technical Manager, said: “Healthcare, aerospace, consumer technology and military industries are already harnessing the benefits of structural electronics and our research is leading the way in the automotive sector by bringing it into the cabin for the first time.

“We believe LESA represents the future of vehicle electronics and will enable us to design and manufacture innovative, flexible and customisable cabins for our customers while also reducing weight and cost during production helping us reach Destination Zero.”

A VERY SPECIAL XJR-S FEATURE FOR #200

October 31, 2019

Available as a single purchase magazine.

The most successful TWR XJ-S, and no mileage XJR-S – from Scotland and Japan, but now in one family in Australia! Pic: Alex Jovanovic, Freestyle Photography. 

If you wondered the significance of our cover shot for the commemorative 200th edition of Jaguar Magazine, you will be stunned to know the reality. It was taken at Sandown track just days ago in a special shoot arranged by Jordan Roddy and captured by Alex Jovanovic of Freestyle Photography.

This racing TWR XJ-S is the most significant and original untouched (following its last team race which was in New Zealand in 1987) of the seven built.  It is the Spa 24 Hours and Bathurst winner, and was repatriated from a Scottish collection by Mike Roddy over 15 years ago.  Mike still owns, maintains and enjoys it on special occasions.

Brilliant from all angles. Pic: Alex Jovanovic, Freestyle Photography 

The other XJ-S is in fact a very late and rare XJR-S – repatriated by Mike’s son Jordan also from a private collection, this one in Japan.

This unique six litre V12 limited edition machine has as good as no miles recorded, and is exactly as it was built without a touch of restoration – even down to the new car smell.

The full story is revealed in our cover feature.

Don’t miss getting it in your own hands.
