What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where can I get some?
There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Jaguar E-Type sells for world record price

 

On Thursday in Scottsdale, Arizona, auctioneers Bonhams achieved a world record when they sold a 1963 Jaguar E-Type Lightweight Competition for £6 million ($7.37 million, €6.94 million or درهم27.27 million).

 

An Australian GT Championship winner and described as “one of the most original factory lightweights in existence”, the “GTO Killer” sold was first owned by an ex-trucker and “dedicated proponent of Jaguars” named Bob Jane.

 

Of the overall auction results, James Knight, Bonhams group motoring director, remarked:

 

“We were applauded by the market for assembling one of the finest selection of cars ever seen at Scottsdale. To have achieved a near sell-out of our highlight cars, backed up with an 82% sell-through-rate is immensely satisfying”.

 

Of the 53-year old car itself, the firm added:

 

“This is one of the absolute best and most original of the 12 Lightweight E-Types made… It is one of the most celebrated Jaguars ever built”.
