I can't speak for Jaguar but my 2004 Alfa GTA is as red as the day it came out of the oven.

I'd guess that, with proper care taken, most modern paints are better at dealing with UV than the older ones.

So far as Jaguar is concerned, I've seen no fade on red cars when attending JEC events, which would probably square with my observation about looking after the car.

It's a nice colour and the ones I've painted I've never noticed any change in colour

I would have thought now days, everything would be okay - just take care of and look after it.

Mate has an XE R sport in white and loves it, very nice to drive and loaded with kit
