Le Mans - 1959 - Highlights
The 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans was the 27th Grand Prix of Endurance, and took
place on June 20 and 21 1959. It was also the fourth round of the World
Impression from the (replica) Jaguar C-type of mr. Budde.

Footage from the 1993 Le Mans 24 hours, focusing on the Jaguar XJ220 entry.
Jaguar won the GT class with car number 50, driven by David Coulthard,
David Brabham and John Nielsen. Footage includes racing action and
interviews with the drivers and pit-crew as the 24 hours unfolds.
As (bad) luck would have it, Jaguar committed a procedural error relating
to the use of catalytic converters and were actually disqualified months
after the event.
Le Mans Classic Track Laps in a Jaguar C-Type
This is some shaky footage of our track laps in a Jaguar C-Type replica
before the racing started at this year's Classic Le Mans. Apologies for the
quality of the footage. It turns out the camera mount we purchased was
The laps were good fun, but the car was only just run in so we weren't
thrashing it. Also, there's so many other cars out there, you have to watch
your rear view mirror for GT40s!

Recently we came across this beautiful Jaguar XK120 1953 at The Gallery in
Brummen, The Netherlands. This classic car dealer is one of the largest in
the world. We took the car for a little spin! We love to hear your comments
on our videos. Feel free to leave one!
The XK120 was launched in open two-seater or (US) roadster form at the 1948
London Motor Show as a testbed and show car for the new Jaguar XK engine.
The display car was the first prototype, chassis number 670001. It looked
almost identical to the production cars except that the straight outer
pillars of its windscreen would be curved on the production version. The
roadster caused a sensation, which persuaded Jaguar founder and design boss
William Lyons to put it into production.
Beginning in 1948, the first 242 cars wore wood-framed open 2-seater bodies
with aluminium panels. Production switched to the 1cwt or 112 lb (51 kg)
heavier all-steel in early 1950. The "120" in the name referred to the
aluminium car's 120 mph (193 km/h) top speed (faster with the windscreen removed), which
made it the world's fastest production car at the time of its launch. In
1949 the first production roadster, chassis number 670003, was delivered to
The ex-Clark Gable XK120 at the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
The XK120 was ultimately available in two open versions, first as an open
2-seater described in the US market as the roadster (and designated OTS,
for open two-seater, in America), then also as a drophead coupé (DHC) from
1953; and also as a closed, or fixed head coupé (FHC) from 1951.
A smaller-engined version 2-litres, 4 cylinders, intended for the UK market
was cancelled prior to production.
On May 30 1949, on the empty Ostend-Jabbeke motorway in Belgium, a
prototype XK120 timed by the officials of the Royal Automobile Club of
Belgium achieved an average of runs in opposing directions of 132.6 mph
with the windscreen replaced by just one small aeroscreen and a catalogued
alternative top gear ratio,[note 1] and 135 mph with a passenger-side
tonneau cover in place. In 1950 and 1951, at a banked oval track in
France, XK120 roadsters averaged over 100 mph for 24 hours and over 130 mph
for an hour, and in 1952 a fixed-head coupé took numerous world records
for speed and distance when it averaged 100 mph for a week.
Roadsters were also successful in racing and rallying.

Позиционирование автомобиля на
российском рынке - главный вопрос,
который Сергей Стиллавин и Рустам
Вахидов задали себе во время "Большого
тест-драйва" машины Jaguar XF. Кто купит этот
автомобиль за почти 3 миллиона рублей,
учитывая неплохой экстрерьер, спорные
моменты в интерьере и наличие достойных
конкурентов в этом ценовом сегменте?
