Product description

An early Jaguar advertising slogan summed up the timeless appeal of this great British marque as "Grace, Space and Pace." This programme, made with support from the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, explores these legendary qualities with superb archive footage and unrivalled access to the most significant and historic models in Jaguar's own collection. 

The Jaguar story starts, like so many of the other greats of British motoring, in a small garage in the days after the First World War and goes on to encompass racing success, luxurious limousines and some of the most iconic cars of all time.

From its humble beginnings as a builder of motorcycle sidecars to success with the glorious C-, D-, and E-types, Jaguar’s story shows the British automotive industry at its finest.

The company maybe most famous for its sports cars but this programme shows much of the success has been built on unpretentious but stylish and reliable big saloons.

Delve into the Jaguar pantheon with this excellent documentary and see all the important models including  SS100, XK120, Mk VII, MK 2, XK8 and the classic racers in action. There’s also the chance to see these iconic cars up close and in detail at various shows around the world.

All this, plus interviews with Jaguar drivers such as Stirling Moss and Jack Fairman, Group 44 owner Bob Tullius and Group 44 driver Brian Redman, adds up to a fascinating review of Jaguar's unique place in British motoring.
