2018 Jaguar F-Type SVR Coupe

Jaguar’s awesome topless F-Type comes in hardtop form. If you really want to get moving, you want the F-Type SVR Coupe. If you’ve been here before, you’ll know I drove the F-Type SVR a few months ago. I may have loved it. I even confessed that I didn’t mind it was a convertible. A little while later, our local Jag man mentioned that he had an SVR coupe on the way. It’s almost like the room fell silent when he said it. But because he’s awesome, I didn’t have to ask.…

Links We Like: Jaguar XF, Honda HR-V and more

Every week I like to let you know what I’m writing about normal cars (just so you know it’s not all beer and skittles) as well as articles from around the web. So let’s get cracking. Carsguide.com.au Jaguar’s XF Sportbrake was a lovely thing and I spent a week with it. Only drama was a flat tyre. I suspect a passing miscreant stabbed the tyre with something very small and very sharp. I recently drove a Subaru Liberty (aka Subaru Legacy elsewhere) for Carsguide. I liked the improvements to the drivetrain,…

NY 2018: Jaguar F-Pace SVR

If you want a fast SUV, there’s a new contender – the Jaguar F-Pace SVR. Oh, we knew it was coming, but wow, here it is and it looks tough. F-Pace SVR From the minds that brought you the wonderful F-Type SVR – a firm favourite here at The Redline – comes an SVO-fettled F-Pace. The company is having a massive year, and just about all of it is pivoting around SUVs and not just Jags. We knew this was coming, but courtesy of the New York Motor Show, we’ve…

Redline Links We Like: Astra, WRX, Forester

Links We Like is a new series we’ll do every week or so to highlight more of my writing outside of The Redline as well as from other sites that are worth a look. Most of these are normal cars that we actually buy, so there’s an added bonus of genuine consumer information. CarsGuide.com.au So, from me, there’s my review of the Holden Astra R+ at CarsGuide.com.au, a nice little car that actually handles pretty well. If you want to see some lunatic commenters, there’s my review of the Subaru…

New Electric Jaguar I-Pace is Fast and Cool

Here’s a thing – the new Jaguar I-Pace is fast. Like really fast. And I reckon Tesla should watch out because not only will the I-Pace see off a Model X 100D, it looks better and is bound to be built better. Rolling down the line at Austria’s Magna-Steyr – alongside E-Pace – the I is Jaguar’s game-changer.   Jaguar I-Pace The I-Pace feels like it has been a long time coming, but it’s hugely important. It’s not just important to Jaguar, but to the whole industry. It’s the first…

The Jaguar D-Type Returns

The Jaguar D-Type Returns Hot on the heels of the “new” E-Types and Land Rover Defender Works V8, the British company is once again putting an old-stager back into production – the D-Type. If you missed the oddball Grand Tour episode which pitted the D-Type against, of all things, a Civic Type R, this is news. But there’s more to it than Clarkson and company’s quick summary of the situation. The planned production run for the D-Type was 100 cars but production came to a halt at 75. This new run…

Lister Returns To The Road With Lister Thunder

Jaguar F-Type-based Lister Thunder hits the road. Britain really knows how to do sports cars of a particular type. Then another British company takes that sports car and turns it into a total nutter. Lister is just such a company and almost thirty years since the mad 7.0-litre V12 XJS called the Lister Le Mans, they’re back. The new car is a called Thunder. That’s appropriate before they throw a single spanner at the supercharged V8 F-Pace because as we discovered in our SVR review, that engine is possibly the…

Jaguar F-Type SVR Review

Jaguar F-Type SVR  Jaguar’s F-Type SVR feels like it’s the end of a story fifty-odd years in the making. With the incredibly beauty of Ian Callum’s roadster crammed with go-faster goodness from Jaguar Land Rover’s SVO team, it feels like it’s full of 1950s Le Mans excitement. The F-Type SVR is one of the fastest Jags ever put on the road and we had time on some fantastic winding roads to stretch its claws. History The F-Type arrived in 2013, based on the rather successful XK. The XK was also…

Frankfurt 2017: Jaguar Announces I-PACE eTrophy

Jaguar Announces I-PACE eTrophy The all-electric I-Pace hasn’t hit the roads yet, but already Jaguar has announced the i-Pace eTrophy. Slightly cringeworthy name aside, the racing series will support Formula E races. The British brand was the first to get themselves a place in the electric open-wheeler series which is growing in popularity. What’s an I-Pace? SUVs aren’t really The Redline’s thing, so it’s worth having a quick trip down Jaguar’s high-riding product line. The company’s first SUV was the F-Pace, which went completely ballistic, selling over 80,000 units in…
