Jaguar Performance and Technology
In the 1920s England used to be an auto-manufacturing powerhouse as well along with Germany, Italy, France and the US and Jaguar was the top of the top among this elite group. In fact Jaguar was the first company to produce a 3.5L, 125 Hp engine in a coupé body in 1940. At that time no other company had the technology to fabricate a 3.5L engine which would fit inside a coupé body and still produce 125 Hp. During the World War 2 the British government poured in a lot of money in the Jaguar brand because they were building vehicles for the British Army at that time and the brand came out even stronger from the war. Fast forward some years after the war, Jaguar was one of the most profitable vehicle brands in England and the world, with their unique engines and amazing body styling. In recent years, Jaguar has gone for a more sublime body styling than the previous models produced. Also, it is also worthy to note that Jaguar vehicles are a preferred choice in many James Bond movies as a result of their superb technology, performance and energy.
