THE SENSATIONAL ECURIE ECOSSE LM69 IS BORN
It is the first official Ecurie Ecosse car meant for the market and carries a massive Jaguar V12 engine in the rear of its coupe body. 

THE AWSOME F-PACE SVR – FROM BEHIND THE WHEEL

Who could have imagine that Jaguar’s newest sports car would be an SUV?  Well it is, unofficially at least.  It drives hand handles like a sports car, yet reverts to a family SUV when performance is not a need.

WE FOUND THE 29TH E-TYPE ROADSTER IN AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND AND FOLLOW ITS LIVES IN THE US, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, THE UK AND NEW ZEALAND

Simon Crispe is a world renowned architect with a deep passion for English sports cars.  He bought and restored a Daimler SP250 which he still has, and the found one of the earliest E-Types built which was remarkably original.  He bought it and carefully restored exactly as it should be.This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Screen-Shot-2019-09-19-at-11.41.12.jpg

PAUL MULLEN AND HIS ROUGE X350 PURCHASE
Paul knows his Jaguars, but bought this one sight unseen – only to be let down by its condition.  He put it right though.  He tells us how he did it, and explains it is one of 10 built by Jaguar for the British Royal Family!

THE REMARKABLE PARIS MOTOR SHOW AND LE MANS COOPER JAGUAR

This very special car was created for Peter Whitehead to race at Le Mans in 1955, but was shown first in Paris.  It is one of three only examples of this model and has been in Australia since 1955.  In researching it for this edition we also discovered previous unknown facts about Whitehead, Jaguar’s 1951 Le Mans winner, and the first person to take the D-Type to victory.

ONE VERY REMARKABLE MAN WHO WHO THREE D-TYPES IN ONE YEAR – AND DISCOVERING WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM

Alfonso Gomez Mena was a very wealthy Cuban sugar baron who loved racing.  In 1955 he bought his first new D-Type, quickly wrote it off, replaced it with another which he also destroyed.  His third was the ex-Ecurie Belge XKD503 which finished third at Le Mans in 1955.  

We explain the man, and track the three cars of his which have been lost since the late 1950s.  It is a remarkable story.

BRUCE McLAREN’S MUSEUM IN NEW ZEALAND

The legendary Bruce McLaren had a very strong association with Jaguar – its cars and its people.  He owned and raced many, and we explain this following our visit to his museum just out of Auckland.

Plus the Goodwood Revival, Dave Taylor’s XK150 restoration

… plus much more.
