In 1935, when a small company in Coventry, England, launched a sporting saloon (i.e., sedan) called the Jaguar SS, it set in motion an inexorable process that would lead to Britain's most beloved line of high-performance automobiles. The Complete Book of Jaguar covers the SS and all of the Jaguar's subsequent production models, from the original SS Jaguar to today's F-Type sports cars, F-Pace SUV, X-Type sedans, as well as concept cars.

As with other books in the Complete Book Series, author Nigel Thorley organizes the content chronologically with entries for each year. Narratives for each discuss the cars and technology, while spec tables highlight key technical and performance specifications.

Originally begun by a couple of motorcycle enthusiasts--William Lyons and William Walmsley--as a firm called the Swallow Sidecar Company, Jaguar would become one of the world's most celebrated automakers. In England's bleak postwar years, Jaguar became a shining star--first with its XK120, followed by the XK140 and XK150. Sporting sedans like the Mark 2 and Mark X set the bar for luxury four-door transport in the '50s and '60s. Then Jaguar stunned the world with the achingly beautiful E-Type in 1961, a genuine 150 mph super sports car.

Along the way, the company competed on road courses around the world, going head to head with greats like Ferrari and Aston Martin. Though Jaguar lost its way periodically in the modern era, it has bounded back stronger than ever in the twenty-first century with a strong lineup, including the new F-Type sports car and F-Pace SUV.

The Complete Book of Jaguar is the essential guide to this important chapter in the history of sports and luxury automobiles.
