Most of us haven’t heard of former Jaguar Student Apprentice Cliff Ruddell – but we maybe own or have owned Jaguars he designed and perhaps engineered too.
His story is a ten page highlight of our coming edition, and it is more than fascinating – it is historically very important because he relates how things were done at Jaguar back in the day, including the long evolution of the XJ40, XJ-S, a lost mid-sized four door which came way before the S-Type, the XJ41 sports car which became the hallowed Aston Martin-badged DB7 and his lost replacement for the Daimler DS420 limousine.
Most importantly though, Cliff tells us for the first time how and when and why the XJ220 came about.
A teaser is that he supplied us with concept images, drawings and much more of what was planned to be a sports racer – before the XJ220 as we know it was even thought of.
