About Steering Column Adjustables
The steering wheel is one of the most frequently used controls in any motor vehicle. It is therefore important that the driver is able to operate the steering wheel comfortably. It is for that reason that the Jaguaradjustable steering column was developed.
The first Jaguaradjustable steering column took the form of a tilt wheel, which was developed in the early 20th century. Originally a luxury item on cars, the tilt steering wheel operates to adjust the steering wheel by moving it through an arc in an upward and downward motion. The mechanism involves a ratchet joint that is situated in the steering column. By disengaging this lock, the wheel can be adjusted upward or downward. In certain designs of adjustable steering columns, the pivot is positioned slightly forward, which permits a degree of vertical movement with minimal tilt, whilst in other designs the pivot is positioned virtually inside the steering wheel, enabling the angle of the steering wheel to be changed with virtually no alteration to its height.
Other, modern types of Jaguaradjustable steering column permit the steering wheel height to be adjusted without any significant change in tilt. The majority of those systems operate with compression locks or electric motors rather than ratchet joints.
Whatever type of Jaguaradjustable steering column is employed; it can make the driving experience considerably more comfortable for the driver.
- The first-ever XK120 rolled off the production line and was delivered immediately to Clark Gable, who had preordered it well in advance. The XK120 came with a removable windscreen and could hit a solid 120mph..
- Before a Jaguar is painted, they are brushed with an ionized emu feather. That's because these feathers are very good at holding an electrostatic charge, and that means they are great at getting rid of any dust that might ruin the finished Jaguar look.
- The most expensive car in Jaguar's history is the XJ220. It cost a rather intimidating £413,000 in 1991 and is also one of the fastest cars they've ever built, capable of getting up to 217mph.
- Transporting a load of Jaguars isn't easy. When being loaded onto trains, every car is driven by a driver that isn't wearing a seatbelt. Those drivers aren't allowed to wear belts, and they even have to get rid of any metal eyelets on their shoes. This is all to prevent the possibility of scratches, and what's more, the drivers aren't even allowed to touch the outside of the cars!
- The 24 Hours of Le Mans, one of the most gruelling and famous race events in the world, has been won by Jaguar an astonishing seven times. Their first victory was back in 1951.
