Watkins Glen International President Michael Printup said in the press release,”We are very excited to confirm Jaguar as our entitlement partner for the United States Vintage Grand Prix in September.

Oliver Sweeney Jaguar Shoe

Jaguar Co-Creates Luxurious Driving Shoe

By | Jaguar News | No Comments

Jaguar has teamed up with British shoe brand, Oliver Sweeney, to release a range of co-developed driving shoes. The two new styles, called Weslake and Sayer, were named after two well-known designers for the brand. Harry Weslake was one of Jaguar’s legendary engine designers while Malcolm Sayer was credited with designing the C-Type, D-Type, E-Type, XJ-S, and the XJ13. The shoes were first sculpted in clay before being 3-D printed and sent off for approval and crafting to Oliver Sweeney. Oliver Sweeney Cobbler-in-Chief, Tim Cooper, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to build on our partnership with Jaguar. Collaborating with another great British brand has been really inspiring, and we’ve truly worked together on these shoes to create something that reflects what both of our brands represent: a luxurious, modern take on traditional craftsmanship. As a result, the shoes are not only beautiful objects, but ideal for driving in too.”

The shoe is designed with a flexible, yet firm sole to optimize driving comfort and a pivot point heel for better pedal control, with a waist-less finish that prevents the shoes from get caught on the pedals. Jaguar’s Advanced Design Director, Julian Thomson, said: “This is a great relationship as both Jaguar and Oliver Sweeney have much in common: British craftsmanship, artistry and a love of the creative process. Above all we’re all very proud of this latest collection that we’ve created together.”

2018 Jaguar F-Type

New 2018 Jaguar F-Type Spied Before Release

By | Jaguar Cars, Jaguar News | No Comments

With all the excitement surrounding the F-Pace, its a wonder that anyone at Jaguar has time to focus on any of their other famous models, like the F-Type, but it seems the 2018 Jaguar F-Type is already being test driven. Yesterday, MotorAuthority released images of the new 2018 Jaguar F-type still in its pre-production wrap. The model was spotted while it was being tested at Nurburgring. Although full details about all the updates to the infamous model have not yet been released for public knowledge, from what we can tell the headlights have been slightly changed to incorporate new LED lights. It also appears that the front grill has been thickened and the intake shape has been changed. The model is slated for the 2018 production year, so a reveal at a major auto show early next year is expected.

Jaguar F-Pace

What Its Really Like to Drive the Jaguar F-Pace

By | Jaguar Cars, Jaguar News | No Comments

We are excitedly awaiting the arrival of the Jaguar F-Pace, which will officially launch later this month. Unfortunately, we haven’t gotten the privilege of test driving the new F-Pace yet, but a variety of Automotive reporters have. Check out what they are saying about the new F-Pace and expect to see it in our showroom soon!

Jeremy Korzeniewski of Autoblog writes, “Now that we’ve driven the brand’s first crossover, it’s apparent that there is more to the F-Pace than future sales success. This is a real Jaguar. It would have been easy for Jaguar to borrow a platform from corporate sibling Land Rover. Instead, Jaguar’s engineers decided to chart their own course, starting with the aluminum underpinnings of the XE sedan. As it turns out, that was a brilliant decision. The F-Pace looks and drives like a proper Jaguar, but it has some surprises hiding under its shapely sheetmetal that make it the most practical vehicle the brand has ever offered.”

Marty Padgett of Motor Authority writes, “Jaguar’s known for its audacious F-Type sports car and its luxurious sedans. From the first few miles, it’s clear. From now on, Jaguar is going to be known for utility, too, utility with an appropriate edge. That’s because the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace feels much more like a taller companion piece to the XF sedan than it does a part of the mainstream SUV slipstream.”

Eric Reiner of Automobile Magazine writes, “By every measure we can think up, the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace hits its mark right on the nose. The style and design straddle the border between sportiness and luxury, and its performance adheres to the same balance. Perhaps more important, the new aluminum platform is poised to handle an upcoming generation of new Ingenium gas powertrains.”
