Jaguar XKSS & Norman Dewis @ Pebble Beach Concours 2010
Norman Dewis, test driver for Jaguar Motorcars from 1952 to 1984, discusses
the Jaguar XKSS at the Carmel Mission in Carmel California during the 2010
Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
Sixteen of the legendary vehicles, including the one once owned by Steve
McQueen, made it to this Concours. It is said that never before had these
hand built vehicles been assembled in one place.
75 Years of Jaguar History
To mark the 75th anniversary of the Jaguar brand, a group of 75
individually-numbered, iconic Jaguars from across the years made a two-day
journey from Coventry to Goodwood. Most cars were privately-owned examples,
driven by their owners, joined by some of the most famous cars from
Jaguar's own heritage collection, including the E-Type, C-Type, pre-war SS
Jaguar saloons and a selection of its latest models.
Bark of the XJ13
In 1971 Norman Dewis was driving the Jaguar XJ-13 around the MIRA test rack
at 140 mph when it lost a wheel. Fortunately both car and driver survived.
This short video shows the original rebuilt XJ13.
Norman Dewis of Jaguar on Le Mans 1955

SOLD - 1970 Jaguar XK-E Series II Roadster
Red w/Tan interior, 4.2 liter 6-cyl/265hp, 4-spd manual.
Upon its introduction in '61, Enzo Ferrari proclaimed the E-Type the most
beautiful car ever built! Strong words of praise, indeed, but certainly
easy to understand. The Jaguar XK-E is a classic sports car in every sense
of the word. It's a work of art that is timeless in its design and it's
influence can be seen on current sports and touring cars to this day!
There's not a bad angle to be found anywhere!
The example presented here was recently acquired by us out of a vast
collection of only the finest sports, vintage and luxury automobiles. This
one is no exception, having been completely restored to a show winning
standard. It's presented in one of the best color combinations and runs and
drives as good as it looks!
Silverstone Classic 2011
This is the highlights of Silverstone Classic 2011!
This Silverstone Classic was more special than the rest because they were
celebrating 50 Years of the Jaguar E Type.
Thousands of E types showed up and there were so many on the parade lap
that they filled the whole of the circuit!
