See in England recently, but one car I didn’t know existed – meet the prototype F-Type Project 7 and development car which appears to have been donated to the Heritage Museum.

It look fabulous to see a Project 7 with the roof up too – makeshift as it may be.

JOSE MOURINHO COMES TOGETHER WITH JAGUAR

January 30, 2017

José Mourinho stars in a new Jaguar film, celebrating the successful partnership between the two iconic brands. Taking to the streets of Manchester in the Jaguar XJ, Mourinho reveals what it takes to be ‘special’.

Mourinho said: “Jaguar for me represents passion and performance. It’s one thing to play for a club, or to coach a club, another is to play or to coach with passion, and feel the passion, and I think Jaguar’s cars are also like this. You feel the passion that they invest into their cars”.

Mourinho became one of the first people to drive the F-PACE, the fastest-selling Jaguar ever, ahead of its launch last year. The renowned football manager mastered the art of high speed drifting and full throttle ice driving on a 60km frozen lake at Jaguar Land Rover’s extreme testing facility in Arjeplog, Sweden. Away from his love of cars, Mourinho reflected on his life as a manager:

“I have got the biggest job in the country, one of the biggest jobs in the world, and a job that I can imagine everyone in the world would like to have, but it’s a difficult one.”

Following his win against Hull that is taking Mourinho to his fourth EFL Cup Final, he added:

“Every minute I have is dedicated to my job, and my career has been rich, beautiful, but I have a big problem, I always want the next one.”

As the January transfer window comes to a close, José Mourinho has revealed he isn’t critical of players signing for Chinese clubs. Speaking at a Jaguar appearance he said:

“I am not a critic of anyone that decides to go to China and change a real football career for an amazing economic situation, it’s their choice and their life.”

He added: “At this moment in my career what I want is competition at the highest level, and I have to admit that it probably will create some problems for the clubs that want to keep their players.”

The XJ is Jaguar’s pinnacle saloon car, the perfect combination of cutting-edge technology and sporting vehicle dynamics, pushing the boundaries and redefining what a luxury car should be.

The Jaguar XJ enjoyed impressive UK sales in 2016, up 11% on 2015 with its dramatic combination of beauty, luxury and power capturing the heart of executive buyers across the UK.

JAGUAR LAND ROVER SALES IN INDIA JUMP 16%

January 28, 2017
jaguar
 
The rising popularity of Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) models led to an impressive 15.8% increase in the UK’s car exports to India in 2016, according to the latest UK automotive industry figures. India is now the eighth largest Asian market for UK car exports with JLR’s Land Rover Discovery Sport, Ranger Rover Evoque, Jaguar XF, Jaguar XE and Jaguar F-Pace among the top five most popular models.
 
The Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders (SMMT) said the Indian demand formed part of a wider 17-year high for British car manufacturing last year. “India is now the eighth biggest Asian market for UK car exports, with demand rising at a rapid rate as an increasing number of affluent buyers take advantage of a range of all new premium and luxury British-built cars. UK car exports to the country grew 15.8% to 3,372 in 2016,” SMMT said in a statement. It also found that Indian-built car models accounted for 31,535 new car registrations in the UK, an uplift of more than 12.6% on 2015.
 
“India and the UK have a great history of collaboration in the automotive sector and it is essential we secure mutually beneficial trade relationships in the future. India is a growing market, for the moment largely for luxury vehicles. But we face high import tariffs which makes it more difficult to sell into India,” said Mike Hawes, SMMT chief executive. “It remains to be seen the kind of trade deal the UK may look to agree with India post-Brexit. But meanwhile, it is very much about producing the right product for the market, which is in the premium category,” he noted.

F-PACE V BENTLEY BENTAYGA V RANGE ROVER – CLARKSON, HAMMOND AND MAY – EXPRESS.COM.UK

January 28, 2017
grand-tour-presenters-episodwe-12-759790

 
In episode 12 of the Grand Tour we see Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May drive the Bentley Bentayga, Range Rover Autobiography and the Jaguar F-Pace. But which of these cars is the best?
 
The trio are known to petulantly bicker about who has picked the best car for one of their epic roadtrips but we have decided to look at on paper which car is the best.
 
STYLE:
It would seem like an unfair comparison pitting the luxury Bentley and Range Rover against the F-Pace, but actually the Jaguar is the one that stands out for us here.
 
Range Rover haven’t really done enough to the exterior on the Autobiography to get us excited about it. The Bentyaga is also a troubling car for us, like the bling is covering something up.
 
Jaguar has nailed the styling of the F-Pace. It is bold and sporty, proving that you don’t have to chose between style and practicality.
 
Winner: Jaguar F-Pace

Massa-344x229
 
Felipe Massa is set to undergo a test with the Jaguar Formula E squad.
 
The Brazilian previously indicated wishes to experience the electric single seater series shortly after announcing his retirement from Formula 1 at the end of last season.
 
In an unexpected twist Massa has since been lured back to F1 by signing a one-year deal to replace Valtteri Bottas at Williams following his move to Mercedes.
 
Still keen to evaluate his options for a future career outside of F1, the Panasonic Jaguar team has now confirmed it has received a request from Massa to test one of its cars.
 
The British marque entered the category this year with Kiwi Mitch Evans and Northern Irishman Adam Carroll.
 
“Panasonic Jaguar Racing received a request from Formula E to give Felipe Massa the chance to experience a Formula E car,” read a statement from the team.
 
“We are happy to provide this opportunity.”
 
British publication Autosport has reported the test will take place this week at an unknown location.

JAGUAR LAND ROVER MOVES AHEAD WITH HIGH TECH COMPANY SHARE – The Economic Times

January 7, 2017
jaguar-land-rover-buys-stake-in-car-technology-firm-cloudcar
 
Jaguar Land Rover said on Friday it was buying a minority stake in connected car technology firm CloudCar, as automakers seek out new partnerships and investments to build high-tech models.
 
Car manufacturers are developing connected cars, which use the internet to improve customers’ driving experiences and allow vehicles to communicate with each other, in a race with tech giants such as Google.
 
In October, Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), parent company Tata MotorsBSE -0.83 % and U.S. carmaker Ford tested connected cars using technology designed to speed up journeys and cut accidents, the first such trials in Britain.
 
CloudCar, which has developed technology including to improve voice activation, has been a supplier to JLR for several years, with plans to use the next generation of its technology in Jaguar’s first fully electric model.
 
On Friday, the carmaker said it would invest $15 million (12 million pounds) and acquire an unspecified stake in the firm.
 
“This investment is integral to Jaguar Land Rover’s vehicle technology programme,” said Executive Director of Corporate Strategy Hanno Kirner, adding he wanted to work with other carmakers.
 
“The eventual need to integrate into the car hundreds of driver-focused global cloud services and content means this platform is an excellent example where cooperation … can improve outcomes for customers, as well as reducing costs.”
