Forget your pipe and slippers. Leave your crossword puzzle at the showroom door. You won’t need any of these when you choose a Jaguar as your next car from Dick Lovett Jaguar Melksham, near Bath.
Long gone are the days when Jaguar was considered to be simply a luxuriously comfortable car for the older executive. Or Arthur Daly.
Today the marque boasts the world's fastest production car in the shape of the XE SV Project 8 and record lap times at the famous Nurburgring. And it’s hardly surprising - the engines are super efficient, hugely powerful and all come with a satisfying Jaguar roar.
Then there’s the tech. The incredible Jaguar E-Pace has its own 4G wi-fi hotspots and up to four 12V charging points and five USB connections. It’s amazing stablemate, the electric Jaguar I-Pace, has an advanced Lithium-ion battery pack to take the I-Pace 298 miles on a full charge, derived from Formula E.
The eagle-eyed would also have spotted the newly-married Duke and Duchess of Sussex leaving Windsor Castle in a converted electric E-Type. Being green really doesn’t have to be boring! Bringing new life to this iconic Jaguar.
And who wouldn’t want to get behind the wheel of such an iconic car? If you prefer sporty to SUV then there’s the Jaguar XE and the superb Jaguar F-Type. The Jaguar XE is highly affordable, starting from £28,295, while the 3.0-litres petrol V6 returns a punchy 0-60 time of just 5 seconds.
Jaguar’s proud racing heritage comes to a head in the awesome Jaguar F-Type with both V6 and V8 engines to choose from. They each have their own distinctive soundtrack and quite literally make this pussycat roar. 0-60? How does 3.5 seconds sound and a top speed of 200mph in the super sexy F-Type SVR.
The Jaguar XF and Jaguar XJ lose none of the style or performance but do offer a little more space for those who need it. The XF is agile and has an all-new aluminium chassis while the XJ is the ultimate in style, luxury and performance with 3.0-litres and 5.0-litres engines to choose between.
There’s the dangerously dark Black Edition models which replace chrome with exclusive black styling - everything from black alloys and black gloss grilles to black side power vents. The Jaguar XE, Jaguar XF and Jaguar F-Pace models can all go Black Edition.
But whichever way you look at it, Arthur Daly really wouldn’t know what to do with himself faced with these beautiful beasts. They are modern, high-tech cars which pack an incredibly powerful and classy punch.
