About this title


Lord Montagu has again updated and expanded his acclaimed account of the Jaguar company and its cars. This sixth edition comes out at a time when the AJ6-engined range of saloons are firmly established and the company - minus Sir John Egan - is blossoming anew under the power of the Ford Motor Company. The brilliant narrative and evocative illustrations (now also in colour) illuminate the most significant aspects of Jaguar's development. Readers learn how the glamorous Swallow bodies were put on production model chassis, bringing style and bright colours within the reach of the many. They witness the birth of the low-slung S. S. 1. in 1931, at the depth of the Great Depression, and watch its successor, the sensational 21/2-litre Jaguar, burst upon a startled world at the Olympia Show in 1935 to set the pace for a series of designs - sports cars and saloons alike - that have always offered very high performance at a competitive price. The book covers the post-war years with detailed attention to the famous twin-overhead-camshaft "XK" engine which brought 120 m.p.h. performance within the capabilities of countless motorists, through the dramatic merger with the British Motor Corporation in 1966 to independence once again and the resurgence of this proud marque. The story is brought right up to date with descriptions of the developments through the eighties and the prospect of the peerless XJ220. The parallel story of Jaguar's illustrious competition record - which includes of course, five victories in the Le Mans 24-Hour Race - is fully described. The comprehensive appendixes list in detail specifications of all the products of the firm throughout its life up to the new AJ6-engined saloons, and the major racing successes of S. S. and Jaguar are enumerated from 1934 onwards including detail ofJaguar's exciting successes on the race tracks of the world in the eighties and nineties.
