Some great Art and a little history through the pictures :

Each link after description is to the corresponding Artwork.

The Jaguar XK120

The Jaguar XK120: Wow what a great second car as a manufacturer! It was built from 1948 to 1954 and there were over 12,000 made. Available as a fixed head or drop head coupe it certainly looked a 120MPH car as the name implied.

In racing it achieved notable victories across the world none more famous than the 1950 Tourist Trophy where a young Stirling Moss won at Dundrod aged 21 (It was his Birthday). Le Mans eluded the XK120 after a good showing but was of course replaced quite early on with the close relative the C Type. As an XK120 it was twice a winner of the Alpine Rally.

The now famous straight six engine was the class of the age for power and reliability and not widely celebrated is the many speed records once held by the XK120! The most significant must be the 100.31 average speed of a full seven days, set at Montlhery Paris.

The Jaguar C Type

Jaguar C Type: The Jaguar XK120-C was a winner straight out of the box by winning it’s firs race. Based on the running gear of the XK120 with an aerodynamic body it won the worlds most famous race Le Mans in 1951 & 1953. Disk brakes were used on the latter car which in turn led to the braking revolution that lead to nearly all cars in the world fitted with them as standard! The 1953 car was the first to win the 24 Hour race with an average speed of over 100mph! 53 C Types were built in total making it extremely rare.

Many of the worlds greatest drivers have driven Jaguar C Types including the legends Stirling Moss and Phil Hill. Behind the scenes notable engineer and test driver Norman Dewis played a massive part in the cars development.

Jaguar XK140

The XK140 was the natural successor to the XK120. Introduced in 1954 for 1955. The badge was a celebration of the two Le Mans wins. Although not a 140MPH car like the badge hints at, it was a fast 120MPH +  car. The straight 6 engine had the C Type head and produced approximately 190 BHP.

Jaguar D Type

Ah the D Type my favourite Jaguar! A follow on from the C Type built specifically to race and to most importantly win Le Mans. The sleek new aero body, largely the work of Malcolm Sayer made the D Type not only beautiful, but competitive and with a top speed of 170MPH + it was one of the worlds’ fastest cars!

Le Mans eluded Jaguar in 1954 but the D Type won in 1955, 1956 & 1957. The last two wins were courtesy of a the famous Ecurie Ecosse racing team.

Famous drivers of the D Type included Mike Hawthorn, Stirling Moss and Briggs Cunningham.

The selection of stunning artwork below are all limited editions and fine tributes to this amazing car!

The E Type Jaguar or XK E as it was known in the States is surely the most recognised sports car in the world. Produced from 1961 to 1975 it was based upon the racing Jaguar D Type. With a massive top speed of nearly 150MPH it was the car to be seen in. With many famous stars owning an E Type it still to this day epitomises  the marque.

In racing a lightweight aluminium bodied car was produced in low numbers and had a lot of success across the world.
