Jaguar is a luxury cars brand of Jaguar Land Rover, a British multinational car manufacturer with its headquarters in Whitley, Coventry. Originally, the business was founded as Swallow Sidecar Company back in 1922, making motorcycle sidecars before expanding to building bodies for passenger cars. The company was founded by William Lyons and William Walmsley, two motorbike enthusiasts. Under the new ownership of S. S. Cars Limited, the business went on to building complete cars with Standard Motor Co. Many of these cars had “Jaguar” in their names. In 1945, the name of the company changed from S. S. Cars to Jaguar Cars. The rest is history.
The company also holds Royal Warrants from Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles.
Quintessentially British, Jaguar have created some of the finest designed cars since it was established. To this day, they are known for their building of high performance cars with recognisable designs that are set to get pulses racing...definitely an experience day someone will never forget!
