    seatJaguar autos have an extended history of chic styling and wearing performance. The brand was created in britain, and for a long time its vehicles were associated with the old-world luxury of the English upper classes. Recently, Jaguar has been under the possession of other automakers, but Jaguar automobiles will usually tolerate the unmistakable gleam of traditional British refinement.

    The ongoing company traces its origins to the Swallow Sidecar Company, founded in 1922 by Charge Lyons and William Walmsley. Located in Blackpool, England, the business produced a favorite type of aluminum motorcycle sidecars. Swallow switched its focus to automobile production eventually, changing its name to SS Cars Ltd. in 1933. The first vehicle to transport the Jaguar name was the SS Jaguar 100, released in 1935.

    After World Conflict II, SS Automobiles turned its moniker to Jaguar in order never to be from the Nazi paramilitary firm that bore the same initials. Its first postwar offering was 1948's Symbol V. The blissful luxury sedan was joined up with that season by the XK 120, a sports vehicle that was the speediest production vehicle of its day -- its name indicating its top quickness. The XK 120 demonstrated very popular, and helped Jaguar set up a strong occurrence in the sports vehicle market.

    From the 1950s, Jaguar experienced started exporting luxury vehicles to america. Created simply for the American market, the Tag VII Saloon was launched in 1951 and was popular with stateside motorists. In 1956, the electric motor car got the reward at the Monte Carlo Rally. In the decade later, Jaguar added the Mark VIII and Mark IX to its lineup. In the mean time, the XK became the XK 140 as performance increased. Then came up the XK 150 that was certainly even more quickly, though nearly as appealing as the 120/140 models curvaceously.

    The 1960s noticed the launch of 1 of Jaguar's most well-known models. The E-Type (or XK-E as it was known in the U.S.) debuted for 1961. The brand new sports vehicle, available as the coupe or convertible, provided performance and refinement covered up within an naughty package deal undeniably. The success of groups like the Beatles and the Rolling Stones and icons like Twiggy the style model made British culture a hot commodity through the '60s -- an undeniable fact that likely had positive implications for Jaguar's popularity in the U.S.

    Ten years later, Jaguar launched the XJ12C and XJ6C coupes to become listed on the sedans. At one point, the XJ12 was the most effective production sedan of its day. With the middle-'70s the lovely E-Type was changed by the relatively bland XJ-S. The 1980s saw Jaguar continuing to improve the bar in performance with the launch of the XJ-S HE and a genuine world supercar, the XJ220.
    By this right time, however, Jaguar's autos had also developed a reputation for doubtful reliability, electric powered problems being the principle way to obtain owners' angst. Increased competition from German automakers and unfavorable exchange rates didn't help issues either. Without much capital to utilize to improve issues, the ongoing company made a decision to follow a relationship with another company. This decision in the end led to a complete buyout of Jaguar by Ford in 1990.

    Ford's effect (and financial support) was noticeable with the 1997 unveiling of Jaguar's XK8 and supercharged XKR athletics autos. Powering both was Jaguar's new AJ-V8, a concise yet powerful engine motor that was found in certain Land Rover vehicles also. A couple of years later, Jaguar made an attempt to broaden its products with the introduction of a lower-priced, entry-luxury Compact MPV sedan known as the X-Type. Regrettably, this model poorly sold, as its humble Western european Ford sedan underpinnings became a liability. Around this right time, Jaguar's old-school traditional styling grew stale as competition moved in to the new millennium with cutting-edge, modern designs and out inside.

    Sales plummeted, and Jaguar's financial problems triggered further head aches for parent or guardian company Ford, that was experiencing financial turmoil also. Ford cut its losses and sold Jaguar (and fellow British premium brand Land Rover) to Indian manufacturer Tata in 2008. Though trustworthiness still remains a problem, new models like the XF and redesigned icons XJ and XK seem to be to indicate a bright Jaguar future, as they have modern designs sprinkled with a good share of common Britannic charm.
