Jaguar needs no introduction. One of the premier car manufacturers in the world, Jaguar's rich 75 year history speaks for itself.
The Jaguar story was, for 50 years, the story of one man, founder Sir William Lyons, who built up one of the world's greatest automotive names: renowned for captivating style, breathtaking performance, and a commitment to quality. Since the Jaguar name appeared in the automotive scene in 1935, it has evolved from the production of motorcycle sidecars to become one of the world's leading designers and manufacturers of premium sedans and sports cars
At the heart of the product philosophy is a firm commitment to emotional engineering: the production of beautiful, fast cars that combine intelligent, relevant technologies and contemporary luxury. While modernization is part of this commitment, Jaguar promises not lose sight of its traditional values.
Coupled with its commitment of excellence to consumers, Jaguar has had major success in sportscar racing, particularly in the Le Mans 24 Hours. Victories came in 1951 and 1953 with the C-Type, then in 1955, 1956 and 1957 with the D-Type. The famous race was then left for many years, until in the mid-1980's. The team started winning regularly from 1987, and with increased factory backing the team won Le Mans in 1988 and 1990. In the 1999, Jaguar entered the world of Formula One racing. The Jaguar F1 program competed for five seasons, finally closing out in 2004.
