Jaguar E-Type Reborn

As a follow-on from crafting the ‘lost’ series of E-Type Lightweights, JLR Classic has now turned its attention to producing nut-and-bolt restorations of Jaguar’s iconic Series I E-Type.

The inital batch of 10 ‘Reborn’ cars should set you back an entirely reasonable £285,000.


Jaguar C-X75. Behind the Beast with Ian Callum

Short video promoting one of the stars of the upcoming Bond flick Spectre, the Jaguar C-X75. Jaguar Director of Design Ian Callum discusses how elements of the stillborn supercar can be seen across the revamped Jaguar range.

I want people to look at a car and know that they’re excited and not quite know why or how. What’s important is the atmosphere… You don’t see it. You feel it.

Just. Build. It.

Loop-the-Loop in a Jaguar F-PACE

Jaguar launch their all new SUV in style, performing a full 360° loop in their new F-PACE.

That’s one hell of a publicity stunt.


Listed: 1990 Silk Cut Jaguar XJR-12 Group-C

After qualifying in 7th place, the Silk Cut Jaguar team’s quartet of XJR-12s were looking strong at the 1990 24 Hours of Le Mans—especially once the fast qualifying Nissan R90CKs faltered. Ultimately only two of the distinctive purple and white sportscars made it across the finish line, though finish they did—taking a historic 1-2 for the marque.

Taylor and Crawley have listed chassis 12-C-190 for sale, the #4 car as raced at the 1990 classic:

Chassis 190 was shaken down at Silverstone by Andy Wallace and the first race was Le Mans in June. Crewed by Davy Jones, Michel Ferte and Elisio Salazar, #190 lined up 7th on the grid, the fastest of the four car Jaguar team. The 7.4 litre 750bhp V12 topped 220mph on the Mulsanne in spite of the new chicanes and lapped at nearly 140mph. Running well up for the first half of the race but on Sunday morning a long pitstop for repairs to the nose and brakes cost it time and subsequent stops for the same problems dropped it down the order to 12th and at midday it was retired.

Price on application.

First look at Jaguar Special Operation's 'new' E-Type Lightweight

“The development of the body-in-white tooling was undertaken by the same department that builds all Jaguar Land Rover prototype vehicles, so the expertise applied to the project was world-class. The build process and assembly procedures were initially proved out on Car Zero; this is effectively an engineering prototype and will not carry one of the six Lightweight chassis numbers.”

Incredible attention to detail.

‘Car Zero’ is to be shown at the upcoming Pebble Beach Automotive weekend.


The Lightweight E-type Is Reborn

A fascinating project by the new JLR Special Operations department:

Jaguar is to build six brand new ‘Lightweight’ E-types - the ‘missing’ six Lightweights that were never built from the intended 18-car series.

You can’t get much more special than this.
