Jaguar Unleashes Its XJR At Festival Of Speed

Despite confirmation that only an "XJ derivative" would be in attendance from Jaguar, the car was first spotted by Autocar’s photographers in the First Glance paddock this morning, wearing light blue camouflage with the number 575 on it.

Goodwood Festival of Speed 2017: event guide This suggests that the car's 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine has been ramped up to F-Type R specification to produce 575PS, or 567bhp, and 502lb ft. That power peak is 25bhp more than its predecessor's. This added grunt should ensure the 2017 super-saloon can accelerate from zero to 62mph in under 4.4sec and on to a top speed that nudges 175mph. Jaguar appears to have lightly revised the car’s exterior, with slightly more aggressive bumper designs and large-diameter black wheels on the demonstration model. Once the car is officially revealed later this summer, it’ll slot between the super-saloon classes of the Mercedes-AMG E 63 and upcoming BMW M5, the hot BMW arriving in August with all-wheel…

Why Kate Middleton Was Banned From Wimbledon

Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde It’s no secret that Kate Middleton is a huge fan of Wimbledon. Every year, almost without fail, we see the Duchess of Cambridge in the royal box cheering on the best tennis players in the world as they compete for the prestigious title. But if you cast your mind back to 2013, you might remember that Kate was nowhere to be seen during the epic final that saw Andy Murray beat Novak Djokovic – and it turns out that avid tennis fan Kate had actually been banned from the event. During an interview as part of a BBC documentary about tennis, Kate revealed why she was told she wasn’t allowed to attend the world famous competition.

‘I was very heavily pregnant. I wrote to him [Murray] afterwards saying sorry for not being there,’ she said. The Duchess was eight months pregnant with Prince George at the time, and gave birth just two weeks after the final. When she asked her doctor if she could go, the response was: ‘definitely not’. She also revealed that her love for tennis…

As well as clutching a Macbook Pro in one arm, Ivanka clung on to a small white satchel.  She accessorised with some round mirrored lens sunglasses, a pair of gold hoop earrings and a gold ring on the middle finger of her left hand.  Ivanka has been pictured in very different outfits this week.  On Tuesday she was photographed leaving her h…

Urhobo Group Denies Being Part Of Biafra

The Urhobo Peoples Integrity Group, UPIO, has declared that Urhobo nation is not part of Biafra. In a statement by its President, Olorogun Ebenezer Okorodudu, the UPIO said though people of the South East extraction have the right to secession, groups calling for Biafra must not drag other ethnic nationalities without due consultation.

We condemn and reject such insult. We pray for good health for President Buhari, peace, unity and prosperity for Nige…

(Photos): Wannabe Youtube Star Shot Dead By Pregnant Girlfriend

A pregnant 19-year-old woman has shot dead her 22-year-old boyfriend as they attempted to shoot what they both agreed as “the most dangerous video yet.”

The motive of the entire daring-do was to go viral on the social media and thereby achieve a much sought-after popularity.

The lives of Monalisa Perez and her boyfriend, Pedro Ruiz III, read like an impossible script written for an unrealistic Hollywood movie.

Having been a couple for five years, it means that Pedro and Monalisa had been together since Monalisa was 14, and he was 17: both underage lovers.

They have a three-year-old daughter who witnessed her mother shoot her dad at close range, MailOnline says.

Authorities say Monalisa risks 10-year jail term or $20,000 fine or both if convicted of second-degree manslaughter currently staring her in the face.

The entire bizarre project started on June 26, when Monalisa tweeted: “Me and Pedro are probably going to shoot one of the most dangerous videos ever HIS idea not MINE”
