Back in 1957, with the last twenty five of one hundred Jaguar D-Type roadsters in various stages of construction, a fire at the factory brought production of the be-finned, single-seaer road-rocket to an end.

Now, Jaguar Classic is finishing the run with 25 D-Types constructed exactly according to the original drawings and records – at least one of which will debut at the 2018 Paris Retromobile Show this month, with deliveries starting later in the year.

Yours to preorder for €1.14 million+.

A mint condition 1952 Jaguar XK120 SE Coupe – Jaguar’s first sports car since the 1940 SS Jaguar 100. The ‘120’ indicated its impressive top speed in miles per hour (193km/h).

Yours for around €150,000.

The Jaguar E-Type Zero – lighter and faster than the 1968 Series 1.5 Roadster on which it is modelled – has an all-electric (zero-emissions) engine capable of 0-100km/h in 5.5 seconds.

Other modifications by Jaguar Land Rover Classic include LED headlamps and revised instrumentation based on the original 1968 layout.

The prototype was unveiled in London last weekend to gauge interest in production and, presumably, remind customers that after 2020, Jaguar Land Rover will cease making petrol and diesel engined cars altogether.

A rare, curvaceous 1957 Jaguar XKSS .

In 1957, a fire at Jaguar’s Browns Lane plant in Coventry destroyed every unfinished XKSS chassis. This car was one of only sixteen to have been shipped before the fire.

Having won a series of races in Canada between 1957 and 1961, it was fully restored to Concours quality by its current owner, who acquired it in 1997.

Yours right now for a mere $16,000,000 (€15,000,000)
