The captivating history of Jaguar cars begins with the Swallow Sidecar Company, founded by William Lyons and William Walmsley in 1922. Initially crafting motorcycle sidecars, the company soon diversified into automotive coachwork. In 1935, the company shifted to producing entire vehicles and rebranded as "Jaguar."

The introduction of the SS Jaguar 100 that same year signalled the start of Jaguar's reputation for crafting stylish, high-performance cars. In the post-war era, Jaguar gained global recognition with the launch of the XK120 sports car in 1948, celebrated for its striking design and outstanding performance. In 1961, Jaguar unveiled the E-Type, praised as one of the most stunning cars ever produced. Its captivating design and thrilling performance quickly endeared it to enthusiasts worldwide. In 1966, Jaguar merged with the British Motor Corporation, forming British Motor Holdings, which later joined Leyland Motors to become British Leyland.

Ford acquired Jaguar in 1989, investing in modernising manufacturing and expanding the model range. In 2008, Jaguar joined Tata Motors, an Indian automotive leader. With Tata's ownership, Jaguar Land Rover flourished, introducing innovative models such as the F-Type sports car, the XJ luxury sedan, and the acclaimed F-Pace SUV. Today, Jaguar remains at the forefront of automotive innovation, with a lineup that includes electric vehicles like the I-Pace, combining Jaguar's legacy of luxury and performance with sustainable technology.
