William Lyons started the Swallow Sidecar Company in 1922 to build motorcycle sidecars. However, by 1927 he
moved on to passenger cars and released his first vehicle, the legendary SS1, in 1931. His vehicles continued to improve over the
years, prompting Lyons to change the name of his company in 1935. He chose Jaguar because it reflected the speed, sleekness, and
power of his cars. Jaguar entered the world of fine sports cars during World War II, when the company incorporated aircraft design
and production techniques into their XK120.
In 2008, Jaguar was purchased by Tata Motors Ltd, a private multinational corporation in India. Today, Jaguar vehicles are
designed in Jaguar/Land Rover engineering centers and manufactured in Jaguar/Land Rover plants in the United Kingdom. Jaguar sells
vehicles in over 85 countries in Asia, Europe, Africa, and North and South America.
Named, 'Most Significant Concept Vehicle of 2011,' the Jaguar C-X75 is a vehicle most likely to shape the future of the automobile
industry. This concept car is known as a hybrid supercar and is the British marque's most advanced model to date. The Jaguar C-X75
will offer performance on a par with the fastest production cars on the market as well as adopt cutting-edge technology that offers
remarkable fuel economy.
