The inspirational women celebrated in this category have not only served their respective industries well over the span of their remarkable careers, but have left, and oftentimes are still leaving, a legacy of purposeful achievement. In 2012, Jaguar is also celebrating a legacy of achievement: 77 years of designing and building cars that celebrate the art of automobile making. Sir William Lyons, founder of the Jaguar brand, once said that a car “was the closest thing we can create to something that is alive”, a sentiment that has stood the test of time. On this anniversary we look to our past with pride, and our present in the shape of our XK, XF, XJ and R models. With an eye on the future, Jaguar will continue to innovate and set the benchmark, not only in automotive design, but in luxury premium automotive excellence.
