Founded in 1935, Jaguar represents the luxury car brand of Jaguar Land Rover, the British car manufacturer with headquarters in Whitley, Coventry. Jaguar was initially set up under the Swallow Sidecar Company back in 1922.
The main production line represented motorcycle sidecars, then switched to car bodies. Later on, the business extended to complete car manufacturing, many of the models coming out under the Jaguar name.
The earliest models of the then-called Swallow Sidecar Company presented under the form of SS Jaguar 2.5-liter sports saloon and the SS Jaguar 100 open 2-seater. Two decades later, the English automaker starts producing a sports-car series that were quickly catching to the public. Among these, the better-known models include the Jaguar XK120, and the Jaguar E-Type. Since the 1950s, Jaguar also entered the motorsport industry and obtained great results.
One of the bigger technological breakthroughs achieved by Jaguar represented the 3.5-liter engine featuring a dual overhead camshaft (also known as a DOHC) and 6 in-line cylinders. Fitted on the XK120 model, the engine offered outstanding capabilities for its time.
In 1961 Jaguar launches the E-Type, being one of the more appreciated and sought-after classic models ever produced by the English brand. Over the next three decades, Jaguar adds various models and iterations to its line-up and in 1992 reveals the Jaguar XJ220, the fastest production car of that time, reaching 217 mph or 349 km/h on the Nardo track.
More recent models from Jaguar cars include the F-Pace compact SUV revealed in 2015 and its electric counterpart, the E-Pace that was showcased in 2017. Smaller-sized models include the XE compact executive model, as well as the XF mid-size sedan. The XJ model represents Jaguar entry on the large luxury segment. Jaguar uses the R line to provide hi-performance units equipped at first with supercharged inline-6 engines and later on, V8 configurations.
