They’ve got to be joking, calling a car the XE S, why not drop the pretence and just call the gorgeous compact Jag sedan the SE X. That says it all. It’s the top of the line model in Jag’s compact lineup and is arguably their best car all things considered - performance, style, dynamics, luxury, safety and feel. [...]
The 2018 Jaguar XF battles against some well-established and popular offerings in the large premium sedan race, think Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series and the Audi A7. But there's something the big Jag has that the others don't...a true unique personality and feel. Exterior What a gorgeous looking medium/large four door sedan but not unexpected as it came off the [...]
Two Fat Gentlemen David and I took a Jaguar XJ long wheelbase for a tiny waft down the M5 to Canberra. It's big, it's luxurious, it's advanced, and it's fabulous. Somehow, Two Fat Gentlemen seemed at home. Somehow, despite the criminal dress sense, we used the big cat as it is meant to be used. The day trip might [...]

The all aluminium XJ is the choice of many a Prime Minister and a favourite of the royals. It is my favourite Jag and has been for 4 decades, not just because it is luxurious and expensive, but because it drives like it looks. The XJ doesn’t just waft, it prowls. Our car costs a princely $305,995 plus on-roads. The [...]
Here are a few of the past reviews: 1,2,3,4 The sleek and sexy coupe evokes a time of cocktails by the Med, and of men in tuxes, and women in flowing gowns. If you listen hard enough, you hear 50’s lounge music, and cravats flapping at 20 paces. An F-Type is the car James Bond would drive. And why not? [...]

Jaguar occupies a unique place in the British luxury brands story. Yes, it has had more owners than a banana republic, but it makes desperately beautiful motor cars with history oozing from every pore. One of my favourites was the delicious MKII from the 60’s. It was powerful and fast, and was as preferred by posh polo-playing knobs as it [...]
Jaguar started life as the Swallow Sidecar Company, and was known as SS. SS became rather unpopular during the late 30’s for obvious reasons, so the name Jaguar was adopted and soon became synonymous with British motoring luxury. The XJ is the official car of the British royal family, and the British PM so, it is dead posh. The [...]
