The 1953 Le Mans winning Jaguar C-Type
From 1947-1957 Duncan was one of Britain's celebrated racing drivers. He drove Formula One and Two Grand Prix cars from Lago-Talbot, Maserati, HWM and Gordini, plus works team sports cars for both Jaguar and Ferrari. He won two legendary endurance races -- the 1953 Le Mans 24 Hours and the 1954 Reims 12 Hours.





2015 Jaguar XE, first presentation
2015 Jaguar XE, first presentation London, 8th September, 2014 - The Jaguar XE has been revealed to the world during a star-studded event held at Earl’s Court, London. A true driver’s car, the rear-drive Jaguar XE redefines the concept of the sports saloon thanks to its advanced lightweight construction, streamlined styling, luxurious interior, and outstanding ride and handling. The XE goes on sale in 2015, with the high-performance S model at the top of the range. The XE S rewards drivers with the responsiveness and refinement of its supercharged 3.0-litre V6. Generating 340PS and 450Nm of torque, this high-revving engine is linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shift controls, giving the driver immediate access to the vehicle’s incredible reserves of power. Accelerating to 0-60mph in just 4.9 seconds, the XE S has an electronically-limited maximum speed of 155mph. Press info: High-efficiency 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel: 75mpg, 99g/km CO2 Aluminium-intensive monocoque – the first in the mid-size segment Exhilarating performance, precise handling, supple ride Dynamic design, classic rear-drive stance Lightest and stiffest Jaguar saloon yet Most aerodynamic Jaguar ever made: Cd 0.26 Intuitive new InControl infotainment system Intelligent Active Safety technologies to support the driver Low cost of ownership: highly competitive fuel economy, emissions, insurance ratings, service intervals and residual values Indicative pricing for the XE range: from £27,000 The first Ingenium engines to come off the line are 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesels. Clean combustion, variable Exhaust valve timing and sophisticated Exhaust gas aftertreatment ensure Euro 6 compliance and take the XE’s CO2 emissions as low as 99g/km in the case of the 163PS/380Nm variant*. More powerful versions will be available too, combining exceptional fuel economy and even greater responsiveness. The 2.0-litre turbocharged direct injection petrol engines are powerful and refined and generate strong torque from low speeds, ensuring excellent launch performance and mid-range response. Two ratings will be available in the XE, and both will be offered with a lighter version of the ZF 8HP automatic used in the rest of the Jaguar range: this benchmark eight-speed transmission is controlled using Jaguar’s unique rotary shift selector. Ingenium diesels will also be available with a highly efficient six-speed manual – low viscosity oil and pseudo dry-sump lubrication cut parasitic losses. All of the XE’s transmissions are characterised by exceptionally smooth, quiet shifts. The XE is the first car in the world to be equipped with All Surface Progress Control (ASPC). This all-new system, developed with the input of decades of Jaguar Land Rover experience in off-road traction systems, works like a low-speed cruise control. ASPC functions between 3.6km/h and 30km/h: by precisely controlling the brake system and the powertrain it delivers optimum traction in the most slippery conditions without skidding and without the driver using the pedals. Jaguar is one of the first manufacturers in the segment to use stereo camera technology. This state-of-the-art sensor is the ‘eyes’ of the XE’s autonomous emergency braking system, providing highly accurate measurements of speed and distance of objects ahead, and can initiate full braking to avoid or mitigate a collision. The stereo camera performs traffic sign recognition and lane departure warning functions too. The XE also offers systems such as adaptive cruise control, closing vehicle sensing, blind spot monitoring, semi-automated parallel and bay parking, and reverse traffic detection.Full details of the entire XE range will be announced at the Paris Motorshow in October.





The History of Jaguar





Jaguar C-Type Engine Test/ Revving
Me seeing how my dad's Jaguar C-Type replica sounds. It's not quite finished, still needing some interior trim, headlamp covers, and white roundels fitted. A red light came on while I was revving, which turned out to be related to oil pressure. There is a leak that needs to be fixed. The engine is a 4.2XK engine from a Series 2 E-Type, with Triple Webers. A genuine C-Type would have a 3.4, usually with twin SU carbs. The 4.2 is an easier route to a good power output and ostensibly the same engine.
