FAVOURITE LYONS-ERA JAGUAR?
KEITH ADAMS EDITOR
Could I cheat and say the XJ41/42? It was an F-Type 20 years before its time, and ended up morphing into the lovely Aston Martin DB7.
GERVAIS SEYMOUR PRODUCTION EDITOR
The primitive, ugly, cramped but fantastic XKSS of 1957 – a roadgoing conversion of the D-type, and E-type predecessor.

Any of them as long it’s not green, like the one on the right. And fancy calling a car ‘X’. That Lyons bloke must have been a right laugh.
MURRAY SCULLION NEWS EDITOR
D-type for me. Fantastic history, plus if it’s good enough for Norman Dewis, it’s good enough for me. Ecurie Ecosse livery too, please.
CALUM BROWN WEB PRODUCER
I like my Jags how I like my women – feisty, sleek and graceful. So it would have to be the Mk2 Jag for me in all its unreliable splendour.
RICHARD GUNN SENIOR CONTRIBUTOR
I’m going to be deliberately obtuse and pick a pre-Jaguar - the lovely little Austin Seven Swallow, without which all subsequent Jags wouldn’t have happened.
GILLIAN CARMOODIE CONTRIBUTOR
A 1959 Lister-Jaguar ‘Costin’ racecar for me, please. Elegant 1950s styling combined with a first-class motor racing background – absolutely irresistible!
