Jaguar XK DIY Restoration & Maintenance, by Bob Exelby

He also took the time to investigate and incorporate numerous detail improvements, making the car even more usable and practical for today’s roads, some 65 years after it was built.

Jaguar Design - A Story of Style

People * Process * Projects

by Nick Hull

Foreword by Ian Callum

One ingredient is common to every Jaguar – style.

 

Arguably a greater proportion of people have more passion for Jaguar than for any other car manufacturer. And the reason for this passion is style. Being more than merely functional motor cars, Jaguars stir the blood.

 

People like their Mercedes, BMW, Audi or Lexus, but they love their Jaguar!
