Jaguar cars have always held a mystique of luxury and performance. With sleek lines, gorgeous appointments, luxurious Jaguar parts and powerful engines, these cars and CUV's are tremendously popular with well-heeled businessmen, statesmen, celebrities and performance enthusiasts. The cost of maintaining these fine machines is not for the faint of heart however, but fortunately online resellers like CPD are available to provide discounts via web site or mail order catalog. Rather than purchase car parts from the local dealer, many owners visit the CPD web site, where they simply enter the model (XJ6, XKE, XJS, etc) of their car to view a wide variety of online, from the comfort of their own home or office. Occasionally frugal drivers will search for used replacement parts, but used bits often present a false sense of savings. Typically, used components are just as worn-out at the original items being replaced, and could fail at any time - even after owner has paid for labor at the full rate. So rather than pay for used equipment and installation fees over and over again, many owners buy new discount OEM or aftermarket Jaguar parts online from our web site or by phone.
Aftermarket Jaguar components are typically made to the same specifications as the factory OEM parts, but don't have the expensive licensing that's required to use the official trademarked name or logo. This means you can buy Jaguar parts online that are likely every bit as good as the expensive equivalent from the Jaguar dealer, but at a fraction of the cost. Even professional repair shops use CPD because our prices are usually lower than their wholesale suppliers. Visit the CPD web site today and find out how much you can save.
History of Jaguar
Founded in 1922 by motorcycle enthusiasts Sir William Lyons and William Walmsley as the Swallow Sidecar Company (SSC), Jaguar has enjoyed a colorful history. Boasting a 2.5L engine, the first model SS passenger car was introduced in 1935, with SS 90 and SS 100 sports car variations. After WWII the automaker fell into financial difficulties and sold its Motor Panels steel-stamping parts facility to Rubery Owen, a prominent engineering and metalworking business. Jaguar wasn't the only UK automaker having problems however, and was able to purchase the Standard Motor Company from John Black, which had been the firm's six-cylinder engine parts supplier.
The legendary marque became especially synonymous with sports cars in 1956 and 1957, when underdog racing team Ecurie Ecosse won two Le Mans 24 hour races back to back. In the 1960s the automaker merged with the British Motor Corporation, then in the 1970s Jaguar and Daimler (not Daimler-Benz) joined forces to become part of British Leyland, which evolved into the Austin Rover Group. The Ford Motor Company bought enough Jaguar shares in 1999 to become the majority owner, but later sold the division to India's Tata Motors in 2008 after making no profit in nearly a decade of ownership.
