Jaguar Takes Over London to Launch the New XE to the World

Jaguar reveals special events across London at iconic locations to mark the world premiere of the new Jaguar XE, the brand’s new sports saloon. With live performances and exhilarating stunts on the River Thames and at Earls Court, Jaguar celebrated British creativity and innovation as part of the dramatic unveiling of the Jaguar XE.

Jaguar has been working with multi-platinum, British singer songwriter Emeli Sandé to create a FEEL XE track which has been inspired by the public through social media. Fans were asked “What makes you feel Exhilarated?” using #FEELXE.

Emeli premiered the new track, ‘Feels Like’, live on the Thames as part of an exclusive 45-minute set on a floating stage positioned in the middle of the river with the London Eye and County Hall as a backdrop.

Jaguar began its celebrations earlier in the night with a star-studded event at Earls Court, the home of 14 Jaguar debuts since 1935. An audience of over 3,000 VIP guests were in attendance, including Stella McCartney, David Gandy, Damian Lewis, José Mourinho, Brian Johnson, Sam Riley, Gary Lineker, Ruben Cortada, Example and Sienna Guillory.

The show was narrated by actor John Hannah and included performances by Emeli Sandé, The Kaiser Chiefs, Eliza Doolittle, the Royal Ballet, members of the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Max Milner from The Voice. Each performance brought to life significant moments in the history of Jaguar, from the launch of the SS100 in 1935 to the global success of the current Jaguar line-up. The show culminated in a spectacular reveal of the Jaguar XE, showing its dramatic journey from the new XE state-of-the-art Manufacturing facility in Solihull, UK to Earls Court.

The journey began with 1,000 employees at Solihull forming an ‘XE’ shape as the Red Arrows flew past in formation as the car was air-lifted by helicopter to start its journey to London. The helicopter carried the car along the Thames to Tower Bridge before being placed on a high-speed landing craft to continue its journey to Chelsea Harbour. The final leg from Battersea Bridge saw the XE escorted by two 1960’s Mark II Jaguar Police Cars into the Earls Court Arena. Six manufacturing Robots formed a Guard of Honour to reveal the car to the seated audience watching live and the thousands watching online around the world.

The new, rear-drive Jaguar XE features advanced lightweight construction, exciting design, luxurious interior and outstanding ride and handling. Indicative icing for the XE range is from £27,000 with low cost of ownership due to highly competitive fuel economy, emissions, insurance ratings, service intervals and residual values. The XE goes on sale in 2015, with the high-performance S model at the top of the range. Full details of the range announced at Paris Motor Show on 02 October 2014 says Jaguar

All-new Jaguar F-Type Coupe & R



5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
