    Panther J72

    Sometimes a car presents itself and you are not sure what to think of it. A car that does not fit in a box and cannot be interpreted. Is it beautiful now? The yellow license plates are confusing me. You expect blue with such an antique model, right? And is there on the Read more

    Jaguar Sovereign 4.0 LWB … Smooth Operator – drive with a smile

    Say “X300” and the connoisseur will know it is the fifth Jaguar XJ generation, built from 1994 to 1997. The executive Jag came on the market in several versions. One of the top versions in the range was the Daimler Sovereign trim level. For example, it was regularly ordered in combination with a long wheelbase. It was also possible to order the extended Edelbrit as a Jaguar Sovereign. And we had the opportunity to drive precisely this version. A masterful executive, which is equipped with the blissful 4.0 liter six-in-line engine.

    A concours d'élégance.

    A Concours d'élégance. Kind of like a beauty pageant for classics. And just like a beauty pageant, it is about so much more than a nice face above a pleasantly sculpted body. It's about quality and perfection down to the last detail. Read more

    SS Party!

    SS Cars is the progenitor of the respected and esteemed Jaguar. 'SS' of course stood for 'Swallow Sidecars', later for Swallow Special. But through Sir William Lyons himself, 'SS' already stands for 'Standard Swallow' in the pre-war 'Jaguars'. Standard was the supplier of the engine blocks. And that that brand name after the Second World War did not seem to be the pinnacle of tight marketing? So something was found there. SS Cars became 'Jaguar'. Sir Lyons had traditionally chosen that name from 500 animal names. And it turned out not to be a bad choice. Read more

    Jaguar SS: Purchase and restoration

    An unrestored Jaguar SS is still rarely offered… For 3-5 mille you can already start a challenging project with a lot of welding. An imported example from a dry American state usually starts at about 8-10 grand.

    Jaguar E-Type noses

    The Jaguar E-Type is without a doubt a fantastically beautiful automobile. People who disagree with that are one hundred percent brand blind or extra gloomy.

    Jaguar XJ12 ... so British

    For us as classic enthusiasts, this is not a happy atmosphere for this stylish Brit. Despite the state of the Jaguar XJ12, we can still enjoy the curvaceous body lines.

    The Jaguar XJ. The End of the Show

    We live in a world in which technologists, innovators, clinical thinkers and left-wing politicians increasingly want to move us towards alternative forms of drive. Yet there is still plenty of room for love for what once was. More than ever perhaps. In Great Britain people want to go back to old values. Get out of Europe. To the Read more
