Placement of your iconic Jaguar leaper

story Posted by. Charles

At a car show a few years ago there was a Jaguar Car Club from Houston, if memory serves, who all had their leapers placed in unique areas of their Jags, rather than front and center on the hood. Does anyone out there still do this? I'd love to see what the creative minds out there have come up with. I retrofitted one to be the handle of my parking brake on my S type after seeing what those clever cats from Houston did! ... read more

Jaguar XKR-S is the best sports car I've driven

story Posted by. Anthony Howarth

I recently got behind the wheel of a Jaguar XKR-S and after taking the car through the winding hills of Quail Lodge in Pebble Beach, I'm absolutely, positively, 100-percent sold. The car's overall handling and performance were very impressive and the paddle shifting sealed the deal. If you know Monterey, or more specifically Quail Lodge, you know that the terrain is mountainous, with several narrow, windy roads. At 100 mph, the Jaguar XKR-S handled each tight turn with remarkable precision and ease. If I had it on the open highway, I would have loved to see just how fast I could take that car. I'm seriously considering buying one, but my wife on the other hand, well, she might take a little more convincing. I'm up for the challenge!   ... read more
