9780517674130: Jaguar: An Illustrated History of the World's Most Elegant Car

Grace...Pace...Space. So ran one of the best known motoring slogans of all time; and better than anything, it sums up the qualities that made Jaguar a legend. From their origins in the Swallow Sidecar Company, through their early days as S.S. Cars, to the emergence of the famous Jaguar name in 1936, there has always been a certain magic associated with Jaguar cars: a mark which has almost always competed in looks with the elegant; which has usually competed in speed with the fastest; and which has often competed in comfort and finish with the most luxurious.

This book features a parade of the 'Big Cats,' including such classics as the SS100, one of the ultimate classics of the 1930s, and which has inspired a host of 'replicars'; the XK series sports cars with their tremendous looks and performance; the E-type; the XJ series saloons and sports cars; and of course the racers, from the unforgettable C- and D-types of the 1950s to the Le Mans-winning XJR-9 of 1988. The text traces their evolution and gives some answers to the question everyone asks about Jaguar.
