JAGUAR SEEKS TO BAN PORSCHE, LAMBORGHINI, VW AUDI MODELS IN THE US

November 21, 2020

Land Rover was among the first automakers to forge a path in the highly profitable market for luxury sport utility vehicles, simplifying the technology for affluent but inexperienced off-road drivers.

But the foreign-made rivals in the British company’s rearview mirror have grown closer than they might appear.

On Thursday, Jaguar Land Rover Automotive Plc asked a U.S. trade agency to block imports of Volkswagen Group’s Porsche, Lamborghini, Audi and Volkswagen SUVs it says are using its patented Terrain Response system without permission.

Jaguar's 2020 F-PACE.

Jaguar Land Rover, which is owned by India’s Tata Motors Ltd., said in a filing with the U.S. International Trade Commission that the technology helps negotiate a “broad range of surfaces” and is a key feature in Jaguar’s F-Pace and Land Rover Discovery vehicles.

“JLR seeks to protect itself and its United States operations from companies that have injected infringing products into the U.S. market that incorporate, without any license from JLR, technology developed by JLR and protected by its patent,” Land Rover’s lawyer, Matthew Moore of Latham & Watkins, said in the filing.

A spokesman for Volkswagen declined to comment on ongoing litigation.

LUNCH WITH THE LEGEND

November 17, 2020

Today was one of those special ones because we had a memorable three hour lunch with the great Ron Gaudion and his Scottish-born wife May.

For those who don’t know, Aussie-born Ron was the first person employed by Jaguar to build D-Types (all were works 1955 Long Nose or production cars for the factory and teams such as Ecurie Ecosse and Ecurie Belge) and in fact Ron had a hand in building the first 10 D-Types post 1954. His first job was building the hallowed chassis frames.

Mike Hawthorn gets into his winning 1955 D-Type, Ron is on the right in the white overalls and Lofty England sits on the counter.

He also crewed the winning 1955 Hawthorn/Bueb D-Type, then moved to Ecurie Ecosse where he prepared and crewed the Le Mans winning D-Types in 1956 and 1957 … Nobody else did that.

Ron brought along his official 1950s Jaguar, Ecurie Ecosse and BRDC ties – in preparation for an upcoming feature.

He is in great form, and in 2017 was a star at the Goodwood Revival thanks to XKD603 owner Clive Beecham. That is when the rest of the world learned about him and his achievements for the very first time.

We are very lucky to have Ron and May, and know our readers understand how special he is.

Stay tuned.

FOR THE DOUBTERS – THIS IS THE FIRST XK120 BUILT AS IT IS TODAY

November 1, 2020

We don’t blame them, but many sceptics have wondered about which is the first ever XK120 and the 1948 London Motor Show exhibit we have exclusively revealed, with the first hand help of Richard Hassan, in our latest edition of Jaguar Magazine – and still exists against all odds.

Here are photographs of the car in all its guises – right down today in the US where it has been, unrestored, for decades.

The full ground-breaking revelation is told in digital or printed hard copy and can be read at www.jaguarmagazine.com

The car was believed lost since 1949 or soon after and is the most significant XK120 of all – including NUB120.

October 18, 2020

Our most important magazine ever is now published.

For decades there have been rumours the first XK120 ever, the 1948 London Show car, exists, but like all other devotees we know, we have insisted it was used over and over by Jaguar and eventually cut up in 1958.

We outline the full story, and tell you where it is today.

Edition #204 is available in digital form now at our website (www.jaguarmagazine.com), and can be ordered there in as single hard copy magazine. It will be shops in Australia on October 25.

WORLD EXCLUSIVE: JAGUAR’S HOLY GRAIL LONDON MOTOR SHOW XK120 HAS BEEN FOUND!!!!!!!!

September 10, 2020

In our next magazine, against all the odds, and remarkably, the Jaguar-impossible is explained – THE London Motor Show first built XK120 has been found by our editor and Richard Hassan!!!!! Richard’s father co-created the XK engine and engineered the new XK120. Richard was in the Jaguar pits at Silverstone for the car’s first race, and his father drove him in the first day it was on the road.

Even better, it survives unrestored and in pristine condition!!!!

In edition #203 we concentrate on revealing, also for the first time anywhere, the fate of the most precious and historic of all Jaguar’s XK120s – the first RHD car #660001, known everywhere as the 1948 London Motor Show debut car. It stunned the motoring world and put Jaguar on the international map before being raced at Silverstone in 1949 driven by Prince Bira.

There have long been claims that 660001 survived, but nobody has turned up any proof it was kept by Jaguar after 1957/58 – or survived. No pieces of it have been found either.

Everything will be laid out in detail for our readers, sceptics and devotees in edition #204.

It is certainly our biggest and most important international story ever.

JAGUAR HISTORY FLIPPED ON ITS HEAD … THE BIGGEST SENSATION EVER PUBLISHED

September 3, 2020

We are not stating that headline lightly!

In our current edition we found what happened to XK120 #660001 – the first RHD XK120 ever made.

BUT …

As a result of that important story we continued our research, and with the help of the best earliest XK120 authority in the world, we uncovered the most profound XK120 story of all time – and overturn 72 years of accepted documented Jaguar history.

It flies in the face of great authors former Jaguar PR head Andrew Whyte and former JDHT archivist Anders Clausager – it even defies Jaguar’s own build records! We have indisputable facts to back it up too.

It doesn’t get bigger, and includes the first RHD XK120, the first two LHD cars, the 1948 London Motor Show XK120 debut, the first Jabbeke speed run in Belgium, the 1949 Silverstone One Hour Production car race and the first race for an XK120 in the USA.

And, that’s the tip of the iceberg – the final twist in the tale will shock absolutely everyone.

DO NOT miss this one. If you are outside Australia you will need subscribe to get your magazine. It WILL be worth it, I can promise.

TRIPLE 8 BOSS ROLAND DANE AND PAUL MORRIS TO RACE AN XJ-S IN TOWNSVILLE THIS WEEKEND …

August 27, 2020

Triple Eight boss Roland Dane will line up in the North Queensland Supersprinters support category the next two Supercars weekends in Townsville.

Dane and 2014 Bathurst winner Paul Morris will rotate between the former’s 1985 Group A Jaguar XJS and 1967 Chevrolet Camaro, with five 20-minute sessions in store for this weekend’s NTI Townsville SuperSprint.

An ex-racer in the UK, Dane jumped at the opportunity to have a steer around the Reid Park circuit.

“I asked if I could bring a couple of my older cars up there just to have some fun and I suppose get out of town for a little while and enjoy Queensland when it’s hard to go anywhere else,” he told Supercars.com.

“It’s a good circuit because it’s actually a mixture of street and permanent … it’s more akin to an Adelaide than a Gold Coast really and of course it’s got a permanent pit building which was a fantastic initiative by the council and the state government back in 2009 when we first went there.

“So it’s a great venue and five minutes from the middle of town, so a lot of fun.”

Asked how hard he’ll be pushing out on track?

“Well I’ll try not to make a fool of myself,” Dane laughed.

“I couldn’t really care less about [pace], I’d just prefer not to damage them.

“I just want to have some fun and be doing something to be honest when we can’t go in and out of the Supercars paddock freely.

“I haven’t raced since 1995. But I’ve driven around tracks: Queensland Raceway and Norwell, et cetera, over the years in different things including Supercars and bits and pieces.”

Of his treasured cars: “It’s an ’85 Group A Jaguar built in New Zealand and about eight or nine years ago it was rebuilt by Angus Fogg and he only used it in some historic racing in New Zealand and I bought it last year so looking forward to running that.

“V12 engine, it sounds magnificent.

“And the ’67 Camaro was actually built into a race car in the early ‘90s by Andy Rouse in the UK, who was a prolific touring car driver and team owner and engineer.”

JAGUAR BRINGS IN ECONOMY PRICED I-PACE

August 27, 2020

Jaguar is slashing the price of its flagship I-Pace EV400 electric SUV by introducing an entry-level EV320 variant with special edition features in a bid to capture a piece of the busy European electric car market.

The new model will have the same 90kWh battery and 470km driving range (WLTP) as its more upscale 2021 EV400 stablemate, but the EV320 will have less powerful motor with an output of 236kW compared to the former’s 294kW.

Jaguar says the base price for both models will now start from €75,351.26 ($A123,846.50 converted), which will further be reduced by German government state subsidies to €64,957.98 ($A106,764.22 converted).

Car makers are pushing electric vehicles in Europe to meet ever-stricter vehicle emissions standards, and with numerous government incentives being pushed across the EU, electric vehicle sales are now higher than in China.

To whet the appetite of would-be premium electric vehicle buyers, Jaguar is offering a time-limited special I-PACE EV320 SE, that features upscale SE equipment, and has a “price advantage” of more than €8,700 ($A14,299) and a particularly attractive leasing rate of €499 ($A820) per month

Jaguar says it has dropped the price of both I-Pace models to bring them within the limits of the new guidelines of the state funding program for electromobility (FEM), making them eligible for the state environmental bonus of €5,000 and the manufacturer’s innovation bonus, for a total grant of €7,900.

With a maximum torque of 500Nm, the I-Pace EV320 sprints from 0 to 100 km/hr in 6.4 second, while its maximum speed is electronically limited to 180 km/hr.

The limited edition Jaguar I-PACE EV320 comes with the extensive SE equipment package, which differentiates it from the “S” entry-level model of the more powerful I-PACE 400.

2021 jaguar i-pace

It features 20-inch wheels in a six-spoke design, an electrically opening tailgate, electrically folding and heated exterior mirrors, LED headlights with LED signature and 14-way adjustable (12-way electric and 2-way manual) sports seats with grained leather and memory function.

A blind spot lane assistant, a blind spot warning function when the door is opened, and a collision warning system when driving backwards complete the arsenal of the safety-enhancing assistance systems. Two 10 or 5 inch touchscreens arranged one above the other on the center console round off the list of factory-installed features.

Both models integrate learnings from Jaguar’s participation in motorsports such as the ABB Formula E.

The new Pivi Pro infotainment system is designed to  improved navigation, such as where the next free charging station is, how much it costs to recharge there and how long it will probably take to recharge.

It also features 11kW three-phase charging, made possible by an on-board AC charger and when connected to an 11 kW wallbox, adds  a range of up to 53km per hour (according to the WLTP standard).
