Synopsis:
The third edition of The Jaguar File brings the story of Britain's pre-eminent make of car up to date. It includes landmark Jaguars such as the R-Coupe shown at Frankfurt a week after the centenary of founder Sir William Lyons' birth, illustrating how Jaguar design would develop in years to come.

It includes the evolution of the X-type, the first diesel Jaguar and the establishment of new aluminum technology for the new XJ as: "Not so much retooling for a new model, as creating a new branch of motor industry." Jaguar began in 1922 building motorcycle sidecars and evolved into one of the world's leading luxury car manufacturers, a member of Ford's Premier Automotive Group.

Jaguar's sporting heritage included winning the Le Mans 24 Hours classic sports car race seven times and competing in Formula 1 Grand Prix racing, the very pinnacle of automotive technology. Style pacesetter and engineering innovator, Jaguar became a cultural icon with cars like the E-type of 1961, the XJ series of saloons and the S-type, XK8 and XKRs of the 1990s. This book is a model-by-model account of how this accomplishment came about, from the Austin-Swallow of the 1920s to the long wheelbase XJs of the new millennium.


Review:
This record of Jaguar's production history provides a description of all Jaguar cars, from the 1922 Model 1 Swallow sidecar Coupe Sports de Luxe through to the model unveiled in autumn 1997. It covers 180 models and features a double-page spread for every car, with two spreads for some models.
