Who are Jaguar?
Based in Coventry, this luxury car firm has one of the finest British pedigrees around. It makes cars for Prime Ministers and holds Royal warrants from both the Queen and Prince Charles.
Jaguar made its name producing sleek sports cars, such as the E-Type, which even Enzo Ferrari swooned over. Featured in films and TV shows such as Mad Men and Austin Powers, the car topped the Daily Telegraph’s list of the most beautiful cars of all time.
These days Jaguar makes a range of cars, from executive saloons to SUVs. Its most affordable model is the E-Pace, a compact SUV, but if you’re looking for something a little sportier, the F-Type could be for one.
The Queen, however, has been known to drive a 2001 Jaguar Daimler V8 Super LWB. Other celebrity Jaguar drivers include Steve McQueen, Harrison Ford and the Beckhams.

Can I cut the cost of my Jaguar insurance?
It’s unlikely that your first car will be a Jaguar, so your age and driving experience may not be such an important factor here. What will make a difference is where you keep your car overnight, as insurance providers are likely to be concerned about your car’s security.
You’d also be advised not to modify your Jaguar, as this can up your insurance costs.
