Jaguar was founded by Sir William Lyons in 1922, originally making motorcycle sidecars before developing passenger cars.
The company was originally named the Swallow Sidecar Company before it was changed to Jaguar. The reason it was changed was to avoid any accidental and unfavorable assimilation of the “SS” initials with the Nazi Schutzstaffel after WW2.
Jaguar’s first offering, the SS90 rolled off the assembly line in 1935.
However it was their iconic sports cars, like the XK series and the E Type that thrust Jaguar into the world market. Today, Jaguar seeks to reinvigorate sales with the 2006 release of the exciting new XK, producing up to 542hp/500lb-ft torque in the limited XKR-S model.
Jaguars, being an English brand, are known for being regal, poised and elegant. While they are often stereotyped due to past electrical and structural issues, current Jaguars are in fact just as reliable and dependable as any of their competitors.
As with any other brand, it is important that you not miss any regularly scheduled maintenance or let needed repairs go overlooked.
