Summary

Summary

The Jaguar XK is not only one of the sleekest cars ever made, in its day it was the fastest volume-produced car and won more races than any other sports car. This illustrated book traces the XK's history, starting with the history of William Lyons and his company and going on to cover the main events in the development of the XK and its engine. It looks at the XK 120, and its successors the 140 and 150 models. An account of the XK's racing, rallying and record breaking achievements is provided. Also included is practical advice on buying and owning an XK today.
