A Very Rare Jaguar: The F-PACE SVR Edition 1988

One of the allures of Jaguar ownership is the knowledge that it is a legendary automobile, manufactured in very limited quantities, instantly recognized for its stunningly classic design, and racing heritage. Cole European would now like to introduce you to one of the most limited production Jaguar models to be released: the Jaguar F-PACE SVR Edition 1988. Only 394 of these high-performance SUV’s will be available worldwide.

The Story Behind the Name

The F-PACE is, of course, Jaguar’s first foray into the SUV category, and it entered the arena at the high-performance end of the spectrum. For that reason, all those involved with its creation agreed that it was essential to acknowledge the sportiness of the vehicle, so the “F” is to closely associate the F-PACE with the Jaguar F-Type, a truly first-class sports car in all senses of the word.

The “PACE” portion is a bit more shrouded in mystery, but interviews with some of the legendary designers and engineers at Jaguar reveal that the name likely harks back to a popular Jaguar motto from the 1960’s, “Grace, Space and Pace”.

But what about the SVR? Well, that refers to the “SV Bespoke” team at Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations that oversaw the creation of this limited edition vehicle. We hear conflicting explanations for the “R”, but it is most often associated with Jaguar’s racing heritage to identify ultra high-performance models. But more broadly, the “R” version of any Jaguar model indicates that it is the pinnacle of quality and refinement. 

Lastly, “Edition 1988” pays homage to Jaguar’s victory at the 1988 World Sports-Prototype Championship with the Jaguar XJR-9.

Long Name. Short Production Run.

All that name for just 394 vehicles that will proudly bear it. An example of Jaguar’s commitment to craftsmanship and artistry, if even for a very, very limited number of automobile enthusiasts.

What Makes the Jaguar F-PACE SVR Edition 1988 Special?

Let’s begin with a stunningly daring exterior color. Jaguar calls it Midnight Amethyst Gloss. In certain light, at first glance the F-PACE SVR appears black. Not uncommon for a high-performance vehicle, so excuse the brain for interpreting the dark, ultra metallic gloss exterior as “black”. However, once illuminated by bright sunlight, the F-PACE SVR is a spectacularly deep, rich, royal purple. Nothing like it on the road. Jaguar confidently states that for this limited edition model, purple is the new black.

But that is just the start. The SV Bespoke team matches the striking black/purple exterior with subtle-yet-elegant Champagne Gold Satin 22-inch forge alloy wheels, Sunset Gold Satin exterior and interior detailing, F-PACE SVR Black Pack components, “One of 394” SV Bespoke commissioning graphic, and a Sunset Gold Satin Jaguar leaper and script on the tailgate. In case all of that is too subtle, the rarity of the model is confirmed with a laser-etched “Edition 1988” on each front wing panel.

Continue the theme on the inside, then add open-pore carbon fiber finishes and Ebony leather upholstery. The overall impact is stunning.

Performance and Technology

Naturally, the Jaguar F-PACE SVR Edition 1988 is still, at its core, an F-PACE. In this case, powered by Jaguar’s 550HP 5.0-liter V8 supercharged engine, capable of accelerating from 0-60 MPH in 3.8 seconds. Allow the F-PACE SVR a few more seconds, and you’ll enjoy a top speed of 178 MPH. Impressive for an SUV, wouldn’t you say?

Add a sliding panoramic roof and the Pivi Pro infotainment system, including wireless device charging and Amazon Alexa integration, and you will not only be traveling at speed, but also in style.

Where to Find the Jaguar F-PACE SVR Edition 1988

That is the exciting part, because it’s certainly not guaranteed that you ever will.

You likely won’t see one on the road. With only 394 F-PACE SVR’s available around the entire globe, it’s impossible to say how many — if any — will reach the San Francisco Bay Area, let alone be spotted on the open roads near you. Unless, of course, you happen to own one. If interested in locating an F-PACE SVR, the Jaguar enthusiasts at Cole European are extremely proud to be among the authorized Jaguar dealerships to receive one of these rare, limited edition vehicles. Bob Cole and his team of British automobile specialists, have been serving the Bay Area since 1963. Located in Walnut Creek for over three decades and representing both Jaguar and Land Rover, Cole European can put these years of commitment and dedication toward finding the vehicle that best matches your needs and wants.

Reimagining Modern Luxury by Design in Partnership with NVIDIA

The auto industry is going the way of AI—and Jaguar is no exception. 

Last month, Jaguar Land Rover formed a multi-year partnership with NVIDIA, the leader in artificial intelligence (AI) and computing.  Together, the companies’ software developers will create the world’s most advanced autonomous driving systems and services.  

Who’s NVIDIA?

Many of you may know NVIDIA as the creator of computer graphics chips used in advanced video games.  Well, they are.  But they’ve also become a leader in computer vision, a field of AI that enables computers and systems to derive meaningful information from digital images, videos and other visual inputs — and take actions or make recommendations based on that information.  Needless to say, computer vision is a key component in the development of self-driving or autonomous vehicles—and NVIDIA is the giant in this market.

Reimagining Modern Luxury by Design

As part of its Reimagine strategy, whose goal is to create a new benchmark in environmental, societal and community impact for a luxury business, from 2025 Jaguar and Land Rover will develop all its vehicles on the NVIDA software platform, delivering an array of safety, automated driving, parking and driver assistance systems. Inside the vehicle, the system will deliver AI features including driver and occupant monitoring as well as advanced visualization of the vehicle’s environment. 

Jaguar Land Rover will also use its in-house developed data centre solutions with NVIDIA software.  Jaguar Land Rover’s software-defined features and its end-to-end verification and validation architecture will enable the delivery of innovative assisted and automated driving services throughout the life of the vehicle via over-the-air software updates.

Thierry Bolloré, Jaguar Land Rover Chief Executive Officer, said: “Collaboration and knowledge-sharing with industry leader NVIDIA is essential to realizing our Reimagine strategy, setting new benchmarks in quality, technology and sustainability.  Jaguar Land Rover will become the creator of the world’s most desirable luxury vehicles and services for the most discerning customers. Our long-term strategic partnership with NVIDIA will unlock a world of potential for our future vehicles as the business continues its transformation into a truly global, digital powerhouse.”

Jensen Huang, NVIDIA founder and Chief Executive Officer, said: “Next-generation cars will transform automotive into one of the largest and most advanced technology industries. Fleets of software-defined, programmable cars will offer new functionalities and services for the life of the vehicles. We are thrilled to partner with Jaguar Land Rover to reimagine the future of transportation and create the most advanced cars.”

There’s no doubt about: your Jaguar is now a smartphone on wheels!  And it will also be environmentally friendly: Jaguar Land Rover aims to achieve net-zero carbon emissions across its supply chain, products and operations by 2039.

Cole European in Walnut Creek, California, is your Bay Area Jaguar dealership. Our diverse selection of new Jaguar models and Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar cars are hand-selected for Bay Area drivers. The Cole European Jaguar Service Center in Walnut Creek, CA, employs factory-trained and certified Jaguar technicians to keep your Jaguar performing at its best for years to come.

The Intersection of Luxury and Value: Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar

For many automotive enthusiasts, the Jaguar brand has always epitomized luxury. And, quite expectedly, luxury vehicles are typically pampered by their owners. This is certainly the case for the vast majority of Jaguar sedans and SUV’s that we see in our factory-authorized Jaguar Service Center. So it comes as no surprise that Jaguar was recently named Top Premium Brand in the 2021 Pre-Owned Value Awards (POVA) by ALG, which is a third party leader in projecting automotive residual values. And it is this distinction that brings us to the intersection of luxury and value.

The Finest of the Finest

When considering the purchase of a Jaguar that has been on the road for any length of time, it’s appropriate to consider the merits of a Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar.

Jaguar was among the pioneers of the concept of Certified Pre-Owned luxury vehicles, with its “Jaguar Select Edition”. These were hand-selected, pre-owned Jaguar models that were the finest of the finest on the road. This highly successful and well received concept has now evolved into the Approved Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar program.

As was the case back then, to qualify as a Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar, a vehicle must meet very strict criteria in terms of age, mileage, cosmetics, and mechanical performance. After meeting these criteria, each vehicle must then pass a 165-point inspection that ensures the vehicle is in optimum electrical and mechanical condition before it can become an Approved Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar. In this way, we can confirm that the vehicle is as reliable mechanically as it is stunning visually.

Approved Certified Benefits

To simply state that a vehicle has met certain requirements in terms of its outward appearance and mechanical integrity is one thing, but to “certify” our level of confidence, Jaguar adds a limited warranty on top of the vehicle’s existing new car warranty. This warranty covers the Approved Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar for up to one year and unlimited miles, or two years and 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. When you consider those numbers, that is an astounding vote of confidence for the Jaguar certification process and the faith the manufacturer puts into its product, even when pre-owned.

Expert Care and Service

Worth noting is that the entire certification process is conducted by Jaguar-trained Service Technicians. They employ he latest diagnostic equipment to verify the vehicle’s condition, replacing any sub-par parts with genuine Jaguar replacement parts wherever possible. Then the Jaguar Technician conducts a final road test before personally signing off that the vehicle passes all 165 points of inspection and is qualified to become an Approved Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar.

Certified Support

Yet any vehicle on the road is subject to mechanical failure, correct? Yes, of course. Even one that has been pampered, inspected, refurbished, and certified. So, to ensure the satisfaction of those who drive a Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar, we provide Jaguar Assistance. This is a 24/7 roadside assistance program that protects your Jaguar through the entire duration of the warranty period. Jaguar Assistance covers you should your vehicle become disabled due to mechanical issues or an accident, as well as minor incidences, such as a punctured tire.

Selecting Your Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar

Cole European is a family-owned and operated business that has catered to British motorcar enthusiasts since the 1960’s. We are passionate about the Jaguar brand and fully embrace the value represented by the Approved Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar program. We retain the finest Jaguar trade-ins and go out of our way to procure other available used Jaguars if they meet our criteria. We maintain an ever-changing inventory of these vehicles and are always happy to speak in-person about our current selection and the benefits of the program.

We encourage you to shop our inventory of Certified Pre-Owned Jaguars online or visit the showroom in downtown Walnut Creek, CA. Our goal is always to maintain the best selection of New Jaguars and Pre-Owned Jaguars in the San Francisco Bay Area. And if we’re unable to provide you with the exact vehicle you desire, our team of Jaguar specialists will use their nationwide network of contacts to find it.

The new Jaguar F-PACE SVR features all the luxury and technology you’ve come to expect from Jaguar but boasts a 550-hp V8 with a deafening roar, should you choose to use it. The 2022 Jaguar F-PACE SVR gets a refreshed exterior look, improved performance stats and exclusive styling, including a rich color palette.

Striking Style

The Jaguar F-PACE SVR received a design refresh in 2021, featuring larger air intakes, rear spoiler, hood and side vents, reducing drag and improving aerodynamic performance. The Jaguar SVR logo received an update, along with redesigned LED headlights and signature ‘Double J’ daytime running lights.

The Jaguar SVR body kit differentiates it from the standard Jaguar F-PACE, including a unique SVR front bumper and rear bumper with Satin Grey finish, plus body-colored door claddings. Striking exterior color options and a range of finishes give the already-stylish new Jaguar F-PACE SVR an upscale feel and allow you to stand out in the crowded sea of crossover SUVs.

The new Jaguar F-PACE SVR interior offers supreme comfort with heated sport seats in both the front and rear rows, upholstered in Suedecloth and Windsor leather with SVR embossing and unique contrast stitching. The front row driver and passenger seats also add ventilation and 14-way power adjustment with memory.

Exhilarating Performance

The supercharged V8 in the new Jaguar F-PACE SVR lets loose a satisfying roar thanks to quad tailpipes with active exhaust, but can get tamed down with the push of a button. The compact, aerodynamic design gives you greater control over the high-performance Jaguar SUV, and perfectly-tuned double-wishbone suspension enhances the exhilarating experience. Driving the new Jaguar F-PACE SVR offers comfort when needed and exhilarating excitement when called upon.

Use Dynamic Mode to activate quicker gear shifting for instant acceleration, stiffer suspension and sharper steering that is ready to leave traffic in the dust. Switch to Eco mode to optimize fuel efficiency and keep things quiet. Rain, Snow, Ice Mode uses gentler shifts to aid in low-traction driving conditions.

Advanced Technology

Equipped with the advanced and easy-to-navigate Pivi Pro infotainment system, the new 2022 Jaguar F-PACE SVR offers over-the-air updates to keep your Jaguar SUV running with the latest technology. Every new Jaguar F-PACE SVR comes with a suite of advanced driver-assist features, including:

Return of a Legend: 2021 Jaguar C-Type Continuation

The legendary Le Mans winner, the iconic Jaguar C-Type, returns for its 70th anniversary in an extremely limited continuation run. Up to 16 hand-built models will be created, designed to the exact specifications of the 1953 Le Mans-winning “works” C-Type sports racer. Buyers will be able to customize colors, badges and add optional features. The C-Type is the fourth Jaguar continuation model and the first to use 3D CAD software to create a virtual build. 

History

Chief Jaguar engineer William Heynes commissioned a dedicated competition model of the 120mph Jaguar XK 120 in 1950. The Jaguar C-Type, originally named the XK120C, debuted in 1951 and won its first 24 Hours of Le Mans the same year. Produced for just two years and only 53 units, the Jaguar C-Type is a rarity; only 43 were sold to private buyers. 

For its first Le Mans win in 1951, three Jaguar C-Types were entered, with the winning car driven by Peter Whitehead and Peter Walker, who pushed the Jaguar race car to an unheard-of average speed of 93.495 mph. The other two Jaguar C-Types took second and fourth place, with second-place driver Stirling Moss breaking the lap record by six seconds.

In 1952, the legendary disc brakes developed with Dunlop got added to the Jaguar C-Type. Pioneering the new technology, the C-Type became the first race car equipped with disc brakes to win a race – at Reims, again with Moss at the wheel. 

In 1953, the Jaguar C-Type again took the top spot at Le Mans, in part thanks to an even lighter design and those new disc-brakes that could last the entire 24-hour race. Over 2,500 miles, the 1953 C-Type averaged 105.85 mph, becoming the first winner to break the 100 mph average. The historic win won the attention of race car drivers, enthusiasts, and even Her Majesty the Queen, cementing Jaguar’s leading role in race car ingenuity.

Design

The first Jaguar C-Type was designed and built in just six months. Endurance race cars of the day were not built to last, just to go fast. The iconic design, with a fluid, aerodynamic shape, changed the game for Jaguar race cars. Jaguar designer Malcolm Sayer used his background in aerospace engineering and art to create the exotic design. Mathematical formulas and calculations enabled the smooth 3D curves and low aerodynamic profile. 

The resurrected Jaguar C-Type continuation model uses higher quality materials and more attention to detail, as these replicas are made to last – and go fast. With 1,000 hours of high-speed durability testing, the C-Type continuation is approved for track racing, closed-road uses and heritage races. 

Every effort was made to retain authenticity, with Jaguar Classic designers referring to original drawings, documents and photographs, locating original parts, and even referring to personal notes by Sayer. The research and design process took over two years to gather the data needed for the 3D CAD design. Using this technology, Jaguar Classic designers were able to replicate Sayer’s original designs and recreate the historic Jaguar roadster for a new generation. 

Authenticity

The new Jaguar C-Type continuation model runs on the same 220-hp 3.4-liter straight-six engine with triple Weber carburetors and disc brakes that won the 1953 Le Mans. Each C-Type engine takes over nine months to build, requiring painstaking exactness. The Weber carburetors are refurbished to enhance authenticity, while other elements were recreated to be as they were in 1953. 

No detail was looked over, including the brackets on the brake fluid reservoir, which serve no purpose for the Jaguar C-Type but were part of the original build. They were taken from another vehicle at the time – endurance racers were built quickly with more attention to performance than practicality.

Hours of design and craftsmanship are required to authentically recreate each and every part of the new Jaguar C-Type continuation model. The 2021 Jaguar C-Type features the original 4-speed manual transmission and Plessy pump fitted to the gearbox. Reconditioned Lucas fusebox covers and original Lucas rear-view mirrors were hunted down, Smiths clocks and Brooklands race screens were faithfully re-engineered, and the ignition switch replicates the vintage C-Type’s start up process exactly.

Jaguar Classic designers cut no corners in blending vintage and new materials to create a new Jaguar C-Type that honors the original design but adds more high-quality materials for comfort and durability. The last roll of Rexine from the original model was used for the C-Type continuation models, while Hardura trim is new. The Bluemel steering wheel is designed without the center roundel, as it was in 1953, but a new Jaguar badge can be added.

Buyers of the new Jaguar C-Type continuation get the choice between eight leather colors, 12 exterior colors, and the option to add door roundels in either White or Old English White. However, this roadster was designed and built as it was 70 years ago, so it is not approved for daily driving. Enthusiasts can drive on approved courses, including the Jaguar Classic Challenge in 2022.

The new Jaguar C-Type continuation is extremely limited, but you can build your own virtual model on the Jaguar website. Choose your colors and add ons and enjoy a high-res virtual Jaguar C-Type that is all your own. If you can swing it, enquire now to secure one of the 16 replicas built to order.

Luxury Elevated: New 2022 Jaguar I-PACE

After skipping the 2021 model year, Jaguar’s first all-electric vehicle, the Jaguar I-PACE returns with more tech features, subtle style changes and a faster onboard charger. Reduced to a single trim, the top-tier HSE, the new 2022 Jaguar I-PACE EV gets the much applauded Pivi Pro infotainment system and somehow manages to cost less than the 2020 Jaguar I-PACE HSE!

Proven Design

When something works, you keep it going, and that is what Jaguar has done with the new Jaguar I-PACE. Its distinctive and award-winning good looks return for the 2022 model year with a sprinkling of style updates. A new Atlas Gray grille replaces the previous chrome design, and new wheel designs are available. A new Bright appearance package adds chrome detailing on the mirror caps, window and grille surrounds, and a chrome rear diffuser. The low-slung exterior design of the new Jaguar I-PACE increases aerodynamic performance while creating a sense of movement even while parked. And is bound to turn some heads.

  • Panoramic roof
  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror
  • Wireless charging
  • Heated rear seats
  • Leather upholstery

  • Meridian™ 3D Surround Sound system

Upgraded Technology

The new Pivi Pro infotainment system joins the new Jaguar I-PACE EV to make it easier than ever to navigate, play music, answer calls and even share the infotainment with the ability to connect two smartphones at once. Key information is a maximum of two taps away and a new feature displays the most efficient ways to recharge. Nearby charging stations are marked, along with their cost and estimated length of charging time, so you can plan the best route and eliminate range anxiety.

Other upgrades include the new nanoe™ air purification system with PM2.5 filtration to filter dust, pollen and neutralize contaminants. Pre-condition the new Jaguar I-PACE while it charges to enjoy a comfortable climate. The acoustic laminated windshield works with Active Noise Cancellation to provide for a quiet ride that lets you enjoy the premium Meridian™ sound system to its fullest.

Faster Charging

The new Jaguar I-PACE boasts a 222 mile* electric range and now has even faster charging capability. A new 11.0-kW onboard charger replaces the previous 7.0-kW version and can replenish the battery four hours faster than the 202o I-PACE. With a 100-kW public DC fast charger, the 2022 Jaguar I-PACE can add 63 miles of EV range in just 15 minutes or go from 0% battery to 80% charged in 40 minutes.

A heat pump protects the battery in cold weather, while Enhanced Brake Regeneration works to maximize driving range. Turn on heavy traffic braking to increase the amount of energy gained from regenerative braking.

Innovative Capability

The new 2022 Jaguar I-PACE returns with the same efficient and powerful two electric motor system that produces 394 horses and an impressive 512 lb-ft of instant torque, and all-wheel-drive comes standard. Low-Traction Launch optimizes torque to help the 2022 Jaguar I-PACE gain traction on slippery road conditions, including snow, ice or wet grass. All-Surface Progress Control lets you set and maintain speed on the same slick roads.

Active Air Suspension lowers the new I-PACE automatically at higher speeds to improve driving range and performance. Torque Vectoring by Braking adds sports car performance capabilities with controlled independent braking and improved cornering. Add the available Adaptive and Configurable Dynamics systems to customize the ride feel and performance of your new Jaguar I-PACE EV.

It’s All V8: The 2022 Jaguar F-TYPE

V8 Power

The all-new supercharged 5.0L V8 with 444 horsepower and 428 lb-ft of torque is now the standard engine on the iconic Jaguar F-TYPE. Or upgrade to the 2022 Jaguar F-TYPE R with standard AWD to get a whopping 575 horsepower and go 0-60 in a mere 3.5 seconds.

However, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ are supported. A premium Meridian™ sound system rounds out the luxury Jaguar experience.

Iconic Design

The new Jaguar F-TYPE is renowned for its head-turning design and sculpted form. After the redesign for the 2021 Jaguar F-TYPE, not too much changes on the exterior for 2022. The Double J-Blade daytime running lights get a subtle update with super-slim LED headlights and slimmer rear lights. Look closely to see monogram pattern details at the rear.

The 2022 Jaguar F-TYPE R-Dynamic has unique badging, R-DYNAMIC tread plates and 20-inch split-spoke wheels in Dark Grey with Contrast Diamond Turned Finish.

The top-tier Jaguar F-TYPE R gets AWD standard and adds:

  • Red brake calipers

Class Act: 2021 Jaguar XF

As Americans shift to ever bigger crossovers and SUVs, there is something to be said about a well-crafted sedan. The new 2021 Jaguar XF retains the luxury aura of a Jaguar with a more modern style and the latest in automotive technology. For 2021, the Jaguar XF simplifies its offerings and gets a lower starting price point.

Alluring Style

The new 2021 Jaguar XF represents iconic Jaguar luxury with its classic style and an impressive interior made with premium materials. Whether you are a long-time Jaguar owner or you are looking to enter the luxury sedan market, the new Jaguar XF captures your attention with its distinctive coupe-like style. Thoughtful details, like power vents embossed with Jaguar Leapers, enhance its aura of sophistication.

Inside the new 2021 Jaguar XF, enjoy plush, roomy seats covered in supple leather and a refined cabin with extra legroom – especially in the rear seats. New for the 2021 model year, the Jaguar XF gets larger seat cushions with bigger areas for heating and cooling. The ergonomic drive selector fits nicely in the palm of your hand and then lowers into the console when not in use to complement the streamlined look of the cabin.  

Luxurious Capability

Jaguar offers two engine options in the 2021 Jaguar XF: a P250 with 246 horsepower or a P300 with 296 horsepower. Both pair with an 8-speed automatic; the P250 offers RWD or AWD; the P300 comes standard with AWD only. Jaguar’s unique AWD system features Intelligent Driveline Dynamics that automatically manages torque to improve handling and control. 

While the new Jaguar XF won’t be winning any drag races, it accelerates quickly and smoothly, boasting superior braking ability thanks to Torque Vectoring, which allows it to hug curves and reduces understeer. Steering in the Jaguar XF is adept and fluid, and the graceful suspension provides for an exceptionally smooth ride.

Advanced Technology

Despite a price reduction, the 2021 Jaguar XF adds advanced new technology, including the new Pivi Pro infotainment system on a curved 11.4-inch touchscreen. Enjoy over-the-air updates, self-learning navigation, faster processing times and the ability to connect two smartphones with Pivi Pro. Of course, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration are standard.

While you are cruising around Northern California, enjoy more peace and quiet thanks to Jaguar’s innovative Active Road Noice Cancellation feature. All the better to enjoy the premium Meridian™ audio system that produces clear, crisp and engaging sound.

More exciting new technology in the 2021 Jaguar XF includes a wireless charging pad with phone signal booster and the ClearSight rearview mirror that allows you to see behind you, even when the view gets blocked by passengers or luggage. 

Jaguar drivers and passengers will enjoy their luxury cruise knowing that the new Jaguar XF comes packed with advanced safety features, including:

  • Blind Spot Assist with Rear Traffic and Clear Exit Monitor
  • Front and Rear Parking Aid
  • Cruise Control and Speed Limiter
  • Traffic Sign Recognition and Adaptive Speed Limiter
