Great Marques: Jaguar by Chris Harvey
Chris Harvey describes the colourful history of Jaguar, examines the cars, and dwells on the many competition successes. He begins by covering the pre-war year, including details of the Swallow sidecar and early SS saloons, plus the spectacular SS100 Jaguars. Then come chapters on the sensational Jaguar XKs; the beautiful Mark VII, VIII and IX saloons that brought fast and luxurious motoring to thousands; the racing years with the Le Mans-winning C and D types which still raise the pulses of spectators in today's historic car races; and the wonderful E type, the sports car with such a searing performance that it took the car world by storm in the 1960s and is still one of the most popular classics. The last two sections of this carefully researched and entertaining book cover the Jaguar saloons that dominated their class: the unforgettable Marks 1 and 2; the Mark X, S-type and 420; plus the highly acclaimed XJ series, the unrivalled flagships of the Jaguar range and still remarkable value for money.
