Jaguar XJS

The Jaguar XJS, a luxury grand tourer, was produced by the British manufacturer Jaguar from 1975 to 1996. The XJ-S superseded the E-Type (also known as XK-E) in September 1975, and was based on the XJ saloon. It had been developed as the XK-F, though it was very different in character from its predecessor. Although it never had quite the same sporting image, the XJ-S was a competent grand tourer, and more aerodynamic than the E-Type. The last XJS was produced on 4 April 1996; by then 115,413 had been produced during a 21-year production life. The model was replaced by the XK8.     XJS Diecast Model

The Jaguar 2.4 Litre Mk 1 is a British saloon car produced by Jaguar between 1955 and 1959. It was referred to in company documentation as the Jaguar 2.4 Litre and also the Jaguar 3.4 Litre.

The 2.4 Litre was the company’s first small saloon since the end of its 1½ and 2½ Litre cars in 1949, and was an immediate success, easily outselling the larger much more expensive Jaguar saloons.

Jaguar Cars Of Yesteryear

As one of my favourite car makers, Jaguar Cars have produced some absolutely stunning cars, beautiful to look at, powerful and luxurious to drive and engineered to perfection, and always at a price significantly less than its immediate competitors. If you have ever owned one of these beauties you will know that my previous statement is made somewhat, with tongue in cheek.
