Jaguar Mk2

Coventry's second attempt at a super saloon defined the genre What was in the air at Browns Lane in the 1950s? From that dull-sounding address issued some of the great cars of the era – curvaceous D-types which ruled Le Mans, the unspeakably sensuous E-type, lasting symbol of the free and easy Sixties, and in between the machine which crystallised the concept of the compact sports saloon – the...

The boom of Revival

Bonham's Goodwood sale shows there's no decline in racing car interest Goodwood Revival showed its dapper droves of spectators that historic racing cars deserve their attention, and Bonhams’ auction at the event on September 8 proved the point. Perhaps it won’t race at the Revival anytime soon, but an ex-Tom Walkinshaw Racing 1990 JaguarSport XJR-11 Group C Sports Prototype – one of three built...

Still king of the road

It looks a little softer than its forebear, but don't be fooled by appearances When we pass through a golden era, I’ve often wondered just how aware of it we are at the time. When I watched Porsches, Saubers and Jaguars do battle in Group C at the end of the 1980s, did I appreciate exactly what it was that I was seeing? And were those old enough to witness the titanic McLaren vs Ferrari battles...

The world's richest race

The opener for this year’s Goodwood Revival featured perhaps the most valuable grid ever assembled, racing flat out into the sunset GRAND TOTAL: £119.75m* It’s an odd feeling, getting a sort of snow-blindness seeing the entry list. On any other grid something like a Ferrari 250 SWB would stand out like a sore thumb, but when there’s 10 of them, a GTO or two and a swathe of Aston Martins, Jaguars...

Nights in shining armour

The Kinrara Trophy is fast gaining a cult following at Goodwood. And for your first appearance in the race, what could be better than an early – and very original – Jagaur E-type? Of the many pinch-yourself moments routinely served to crowds and competitors at the Goodwood Revival, the Kinrara Trophy has quickly established itself as an absolute belter. Conceived to evoke the long-distance day-...

Motor Show Review

(NEC, October 18th) So, the Cavalcade concluded - incidentally, the Midland Motor Museum ran Wright's 1951 Frazer Nash in it as well as their Mercedes-Benz - my next task was to go to the NEC Motor Show, in satisfactorily multi-cylinder style in the glass-roofed Editorial Rover 3500 (it has recently been Skyported, of which more next month). A press ticket did not enable one to park very near the...

An Afternoon with an Aston Martin DB3S

The Deputy Editor airs the Midlands Motor Museum's Works Team car When I announced to a couple of Aston Martin enthusiast friends that I was to drive an Aston Martin DB3S - an ex Team car at that - they said knowledgeably: "A better car on the road than the circuit, you know." They may well be right, for the DB3S was less highly strung than some of its thoroughbred sports/racing contemporaries,...

Jaguar XJS H.E.

Revised XJS highlights Jaguar's quest for quality and economy The 5.3-litre Jaguar V12 engine has earned an enviable reputation over the past decade as a silky smooth power unit propelling the most refined machines in the Jaguar/Daimler range. The brainchild of William Heynes, Claude Bailey, Walter Hassan and Harry Mundy, the V12, then fitted with four carburetters, first appeared in the E-type...

Lloyds & Scottish Historic Car Championship

The entry for the second round of this championship at the AMOC's St. John Horsfall Silverstone meeting at the end of June was so strong that the single-seater racing cars were divided from the sports cars in two races. The single-seater race provided the dice of the day between Gerry Marshall (above, furthest from the camera) driving the Marsh Aston Martin DBR4 and Bruce Halford (No.70) in his...
