CAN WE FIND WHAT HAPPENED TO THE QUEEN'S CHOPPED XJ6 SERIES 1?

  To the best of my knowledge, this car was only seen once, and was modified in 1972 for the Royal Tour of Mauritius.   People have called it a Daimler, but it was a 2.8 litre XJ6 with roof removed and a fold down soft top.   Has anyone seen or heard of this…

MALCOLM SAYER'S JAGUAR DESIGNS AS PURE ART

  Jaguar’s genius designer Malcolm Sayer was an aerodynamicist who was responsible for creating the awesome C-Type, D-Type, E-Type, XJ13 and XJ-S.   His works are amongst some of the greatest automotive designs of all time, and I truly look at the original and unique XJ13 more as a sculpture than a racing sports car.…

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! MEETING THE 'MK1' – THE AFFORDABLE CLASSIC …

  Why has the ‘Mk1’, MkVII, MkX, S-Type and 420 etc gone unloved and mostly unnoticed when it comes to collectable Jaguars?   Well, the truth is that mostly it is because they were superseded by even more spectacular models. Jaguar fans turned away to swoon over the Mk2 and others.   My first Jaguar…

  January was yet another excellent month in the UK for Jaguar, its sales rise of 20 per cent outpacing the market’s 11 per per cent gain. Much of the additional volume is coming from the F-PACE, yet the brand’s two youngest saloons are also doing well. The larger of those, the XF, has had…
