Jaguar is a beautifully photographed guide to the best Jaguar sports and saloon cars stretching back to the pre-war roadster, the SS100. Featuring specially commissioned photography, the book is arranged in chronological order, starting with Sir William Lyons' nascent marque of the 1930s. It was only after the war when the work of aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer created the beautiful curves of the XK120 that the company became a world beater. The D-type brought the company sporting success at Le Mans, leading to a car that became emblematic of London in the swinging 60s, the E-type Jaguar. Production increased in the 1960s with the Mark I and Mark II saloons, latterly adopted by Inspector Morse. The Silk Cut Jaguar XJR-9 repeated the Le Mans success in the 1980s, but it was the sale of the company to Ford in 1990 that produced new models, the retro-styled S-type saloon and the E-type inspired XK8 sportscar. Sold to Tata Motors in 2008, the company has gone on to release more premium sportscars and prestige saloons, the Jaguar XF, the new XJ-series and the much-desired Jaguar F-type R.

In 1922, a company calling itself Swallow began manufacturing motorcycle sidecars. In 1927, adopting the name SS, the company built its first automobiles, and in 1945, it switched to the name Jaguar. This richly illustrated book tells the colorful story behind one of the most revered makers of high-performance and sports cars. From the inklings of greatness in its distant beginnings to its ascension to fame with the postwar XK series cars followed by the iconic E-Type introduced in 1961, this book traces the path of a company that produced vehicles of unprecedented power and beauty--including four-door saloons, race prototypes, the GT-oriented XJ-S, and the fabulous XJ-220 supercar. The story continues today when, under Ford ownership, Jaguar continues to thrive, offering a line of top-notch modern cars. Jaguar: The Complete Story is an exhaustively researched account of the companys story, with a detailed look at every car it has built. Racing vehicles and prototypes receive due treatment as well, and an extensive appendix of technical specifications rounds out the book.

It was code-named X100 and it was to be Jaguar's latest sports cars, featuring both coupe and convertible coachwork. It was to have an all-new V8 engine and it was to replace the XJS. It would also ultimately have the most powerful forced-induction engine of any production Jaguar road card and it had a lot riding on its success. It was the XK8 - a sleek, purposeful grand tourer in the Jaguar tradition. Graham Robson, one-time Jaguar apprentice and a motoring historian with several other Jaguar books to his credit, tells the story of one of the twentieth century's most beautiful sports car, from its conception to the end of the line for both it and the factory it was built in.

Established in 1921, the company is one of the most traditional motorcycle makers and also one of the most innovative. Today Moto Guzzi has a higher profile than ever, thanks to its popularity among celebrities like Ewan McGregor. Moto Guzzi was formed by Carlo Guzzi, Giovanni Ravelli, and Giorgio Parodi after WW I.
