BOB JANE EXPLAINED
Not a rehash – you will find out where Bob Jane originated, what shaped him – and how impassioned by Jaguar he was.  His hallowed business success was shaped by Jaguar.  Ten pages on an international legend who led a traumatic life.

 

XF SPORTBRAKE

It is a new model we could not wait to drive and live with – how did it stack up in reality?

 

WORKS Mk1S – JUST SEVEN BUILT
Mike Hawthorn’s Mk1 was not a works car, neither was David McKay’s Mk1 Jaguar first racer.  In truth there were just seven built.  Three stayed in Britain/Europe, two went to the US and two Australia.  The revelations are significant and just two definitely survive until proved otherwise.

 

XJR-15 AND MYSTERIOUS XJ220
WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT AN XJ220 COULD HAVE GONE UN-NOTICED!  Well that’s a fact, and both were side by side in Jordan and Mike Roddy’s Melbourne workshop when we found them.

 

XK150 OR XK8?

The legendary XK title was finished with the XK150 in 1961 – until it came back in 1996 via then new V8 engined XK8.  If you are thinking about buying one – which would you choose?

… plus much more.
