It is difficult now to imagine the impact which the Jaguar E-type had when it was launched back in 1961. When the average saloon had a top speed of around 70mph and most were desperately dull, the E-type was a revelation and the few examples manufactured in '61 were literally mobbed. Pre-empting computer aided design, pre-eminent aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer uniquely applied complex mathematical formulae to create the stunning E-type shape. Ironically, this intriguing man hated to be called a stylist, yet he designed what is arguably the most beautiful car ever seen. Today, manufacturers build hundreds of prototypes when developing a new car. Jaguar built just a handful of E-types prior to launch. All were scrapped bar one which was registered 9600 HP. This car did extensive high speed testing on the newly opened M1, was the car that launched the E-type at Geneva in '61 and was then, road tested extensively by virtually every newspaper and magazine, was the original, and only (due to a few secret modifications), 150mph E-type. Driven by Stirling Moss amongst others, it had a fascinating early life and a succession of interesting owners. This is the story of the car's life, the people who created and built this car, the subsequent history, its lapse into decay and its magnificent resurrection, written by the world's leading expert and writer on the legendary E-type Jaguar, who also owns 9600 HP.

Jaguar founder Sir William Lyons had a hit on his hands when he launched the "compact" 2.4 liter sports saloon in 1956. A year later those wanting more thrills were offered the 120mph 3.4 Liter. Both were replaced in 1960 by the Mk2 models, which added a 3.8 liter, and from there on, the range was developed and expanded with the long-booted S-type of 1964, the 4.2 liter 420 of 1967, and the final 240/340 models of 1968. Alongside there were the Daimler V8 and Sovereign models. The Mk1 and Mk2 and their derivatives have been heading the list of desirable classic cars for many years, and more and more worn-out, semi-derelict examples are being dragged out of garages and barns to be restored. For those seeking originality in a restoration, or considering the purchase of a car, or even noting points of originality or otherwise in a car they already own, Factory-Original Jaguar Mk1 & Mk2 provides the comprehensive guide to factory specifications, equipment and finishes in all departments. It covers engine and transmission, body panels, interior and exterior trim, electrics, dashboard, instruments, switches and controls, lamps, under the hood components, paint and trim colors - in fact, everything right down to the tool kit, from the beginning of production to the end. The text is accompanied by some 300 specially commissioned color photographs of outstanding examples of the cars, enabling the reader to view every model and variant in considerable detail.

The information needed to determine how a restored car should look and what parts it should contain can be hard to find, but now help is at hand for all owners, restorers and enthusiasts in Original Jaguar MkI/MkII. Drawing from factory records, parts books, catalogs and service bulletins, as well as the accumulated knowledge of the author and respected Jaguar restorers, this book provides the evidence of what constitutes an authentic Jaguar Mark II. More than 150 color photographs show every inch of our eight carefully selected cars. Seven of these have been preserved in remarkably original condition; the other has been restored with fastidious attention to originality. From 2.4-liter Mark I to Daimler V8 250, every permutation of specification is covered in superb detail.

When Ford teamed up with Cosworth Engineering to breathe life onto its humdrum Sierra, few knew it would be the birth of a motoring legend. Through circuit racing and supercar-humbling on-road ability, the 1985 Sierra RS Cosworth quickly became a household name. A practical four-seater boasting 204bhp from its two-litre turbocharged powerplant, the RS Cosworth's massive performance was equalled only by an extroverted rear wing designed for high-speed stability.. While motorsport machines scooped innumerable victories and increasingly powerful engines, in 1987 Ford homologated a yet-more-spectacular Sierra - the 224bhp RS500. It instantly became a desirable collector's piece.. Other RS Cosworths soon followed. The restrained four-door Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth of 1988 was Ford's vision of a 150mph executive express; two years later, its four-wheel-drive successor returned the firm to rallying. By 1992, Ford had squeezed the 4x4's running gear into a shorter Escort body, complete with 227bhp engine and ever-more-aggressive aerodynamic aids. The limited-edition Monte Carlo came in 1994, followed by the final RS Cosworth - a revised Escort with smaller turbocharger and user-friendly appeal. Production ceased in 1996. Today, each model has a loyal following among motorsport fans and fast Fords enthusiasts. And as the cars become increasingly sought-after, so too does the pursuit of perfection. This book examines RS Cosworth authenticity, outlining standard specifications alongside in-depth colour photography of outstanding examples of the breed. From body panels and trim to turbochargers and tyres; from interior fabrics and paint schemes to shock absorbers and stickers, Ford's factory-original fitments are covered in comprehensive detail.
