When the Indian owned British multinational automobile manufacturer Jaguar decided to test its latest F-type model, it couldn’t have chosen a place better than the Nardo Test Facility in Italy. The F-type was tested with rigorous high-speed tests. The weather the test was conducted in, too was extremely hot helping the researchers analyse the performance of the F-type against all odds. The fluid temperature of car can go up to 150 degrees. The parameters tested included durability, reliability, engine management calibration, fueling, cooling, thermal work so that the car functions with the same elegance and power it is expected to provide. The main intention of the tests were to let the engineer get an exact picture of the functioning of the car through its every moment and function so that the car reaches extreme levels of perfection. Stability at high speed levels becomes a concern to most cars specifically under temperatures where internal functioning might be hampered. But the car is designed to withstand everything in terms of environment as varied as a humid coastal area to the extremely hot middle east. The car is subjected to maximum speeds for as long as possible so that the amount of fuel burned, the time till which the tyres last, etc., are calculated. The passion of creating fast, exotic cars which do not compromise luxury is something Jaguar possesses not just in its ethics and designs but also among its engineers, who try hard to make sure this passion bears fruits. Creating a car which is a thorough sports car which performs with a sense of comfort is a mission perfectly achieved by Jaguar through its F-type.
The Indian owned British manufacturer, Jaguar widened its horizons by getting back to increasing the range of sports car the company manufactures. In its prime, Jaguar Cars chose Martin Brundle to race them to victory in the 1990 24 hours of Le Mans. Yet again the 1988 World Sportscar Champion is chosen to give a sneak peek to the Jaguar’s new F-type. The car is the first two wheel sports car designed by the company in over 50 years. Martin meets with the chief dynamics engineer to explain the specifications and details of this most anticipated Jaguar breed. As the engineer suggests, being a specifically sportscar company, the F-type is the company’s first attempt at being a truly driver focused sportscar. Since the vehicle is kept under wraps, though specifics aren’t mentioned, the first hand experience of Martin, as a passenger are expressed as the vehicle rides through the test facility track. The turns at edges and corners are highly smooth and car turns beautifully. The F-type is constructed of aluminium giving it a smooth and light platform. Being responsive and highly capacitive, the car becomes a perfect choice to feel the pleasure of driving.
The Indian owned British car manufacturer Jaguar is nothing less to the animal itself. Elegant, enticing, quick and unbelievably beautiful are just a few words that describe not just the way a Jaguar car looks, but also the way it rules the streets. Jaguar has been a sensible car manufacturer since its inception. Going through all these years creating innumerable admirers to its design and performance, Jaguar reinvented itself and created the new F-type. The dedication of Jaguar in delivering performance is evident in the way it designs the elements. The supercharged induction technology employed for the engine provides, at all speeds, instant access to torque to high levels. This ensures in minimising the gap between the supply-demand cycle of power between driver and engine. The V6 engine employs forced induction technology thereby delivering smooth performance and refining power efficiently. The V6 engine Jaguar used has a 3.0 litre engine capacity and has roots twin vortex supercharging system. The engine produces 234 gm CO2 per kilometer. The engine comes with 335.34 bhp capacity. Inspite of high power delivery, the Jaguar F-type doesn’t lose control thus delivering specific output even at high speeds. The supercharged petrol engine also helps in reducing the noise incurred in usual diesel variants. The water-cooled intercooler helps in reducing the temperature of intake air so that higher power and efficiency can be attained. The fast-reacting start/stop system also helps in improving the fuel economy by 5 percent.
The wait is over for the another arrow from Jaguar and it is christened F-Type R, a coupe. The lately aired video of the car features Narain Karthikeyan driving F-Type R along with Range Rover Sport, an SUV at Silverstone, the world's one of the most challenging race tracks situated in U.K. Narain shares how this track is challenging for the racers as it has been built such a way so that the racers get themselves tested well. According to Narain, the lap ride gives him the utmost satisfaction. He also adds that he, as a racer, is being supported by Tata Group since 1999. Tata has been associated with these iconic brands Jaguar and Land Rover for last a couple of years.
The video further shows that how eagerly Narain waits to go behind the wheel and when he enters the Jaguar F Type R, he falls in love with this coupe. He claimed that he likes the speed and braking system the most about this car as he had to apply brakes laps after laps and keep on punishing the track of Silverstone at the speed of 150kmph and this car performs well in that situation too.
Jaguar F-Tye R is powered by a 5L, 32V, V type supercharged petrol engine with 5000cc displacement. It dishes out a power of 542.47bhp at 6500rpm and a peak torque of 680Nm at 3500rpm.
Then, the video displays Narain boarding Range Rover Sport and he feels as if he is not driving an SUV rather he is driving a sport car. The handling, power and muscular feel take it a mile away than the other SUVs, according to Narain. It has been designed keeping all types of terrains in mind. This SUV boasts a 3L, 24V, V type diesel engine with 2993cc displacement. It scoops out 288bhp and 600Nm of power and torque at 4000rpm and 2000rpm respectively
The Indian owned British car manufacturer Jaguar has been reinventing its performance while maintaining the sensible designing ethics, for which it had been renown for over the years. The advertisement proceeds in the true spirit of racing where a distant closed area is chosen situated between hills and uneven routes giving ample choice for the car to flaunt its performance in a true racing perspective. The advertisement starts of with a sensual lady feeling the exteriors of the car which is extremely aerodynamic and flows like waves in its structure. Jaguar used two of its cars in different colours, grey and red, giving an idea about the way car complements the race. The race, which begins with the lady dropping a piece of cloth, starts with a jolt of speed spurring beside the lady like a breeze of wind. Since the locale chosen is a naturally set racing track filled with corners and tricky edges, the car’s performance in terms of braking and handling is perfectly displayed. The aerodynamic attributes of the Jaguar F-type are also shown by a controlled spoiler to reduce the aerodynamic friction. The rpm increases exponentially with ease and the cars maneuver through the road with improved pick-up. The F-type it available in three engine variants - 3.0 litre V6 Supercharged 335.34 bhp, S 3.0 litre V6 Supercharged 374.79 bhp and the V8 S 5.0 litre 488.22 bhp

The German Trinity has been ruling the Indian automobile luxury car segment for a long time and while these companies were earning huge revenues, the the British marque Jaguar was missing out on the hugely rewarding offer.The reason of this loss was because Jaguar was missing the base variant executive luxury saloon market, where Mercedes, Audi and BMW were having a headfirst with 2.0L and 2.2L base variant. Jaguar has finally taken a heed into that direction and rolled out an extremely competitive 2.2-litre diesel XF. Akin to the the 3.0-litre diesel, the 2.2-litre motor is mounted longitudinally and powers the rear wheels. The power and torque figures are marked at 187bhp and 449Nm respectively and translates directly into a responsive and adequately powerful car.To be true the small engine performance is astoundig and the only time you will probably realise the engine's squeezed down capacity is when you want more urge at high speeds. The 2.2L engine is way too eager to rev to its redline and pulls the vehicle in a linear manner while it is doing so. The sprint capacity is marked for 0-100kph in 9.1sec, which is pretty much on par with the rest of the competition. Its kick-down acceleration times are impressive too, which points to why this engine felt so flexible in Indian heavy traffic.
There is a huge demand for the luxury cars in India and the inclination of the buyers are towards big cars having small engines. This is one of the reasons why most of the manufacturers are heading towards manufacturing bigger cars with smaller engines. Jaguar XF is one of the cars with the same functionality.
Jaguar has rolled out Jaguar XF, which produces 238bhp and 340Nm. This engine is the most powerful one in this segment and it comes mated to an HP transmission. In terms of power, this car is linear and you feel its drive ability. It drives amazingly well and does not make you feel the turbo lack at any time. The gear shift has been made pretty smooth.
As far as its shortcomings are concerned, Jaguar XF is not a car with a huge power capacity. There are other variants of this car available; 3Liter diesel and the super powerful 5Liter, 510bhp XF. The look of this amazing car has been carved out keeping the luxury and comfort of the passengers in mind. The design is aerodynamic and has been made very spacious. Overall, this car is the best option if the users need a petrol car and an XF under 15 lakh.
