Much like the animal they’re named after, Jaguar vehicles are sleek, stealthy, and fierce. Designed for speed in racing competitions, these vehicles are not only powerful feats of engineering, they are typically among the most attractive vehicles in production as well. These exquisite cars are well-loved and sought after by car enthusiasts, and the Jaguar brand has had a very loyal following since its inception. Originally known as the Swallow Sidecar Company, Jaguar changed its name in 1945 and began creating the breathtaking vehicles we now know and love.
This stunning 2-door coupe was an icon of its time. With top speeds of up to 150 mph and the ability to go from 0 to 60 mph in about 7 seconds, the 1961 Jaguar E-Type Coupe was nothing to sneeze at. Not only was this car loved for its superior features, it was and still is highly sought after for its unique body and chassis design. Increased leg room was implemented on the inside, but it was the exterior that really caught the eye. Ranked as first in multiple lists of the most beautiful cars, the Jaguar E-Type had a sleek body that was attached to the framework, with the engine bolted in directly.
You'll see for yourself why this car is so popular when you look at this incredible diecast model replica by Bburago. The model is painted in an attractive red color that will look great in any collection. The 1/18 scale is just the right size to help this car add a bit of style and personality to your display.
The Jaguar XJ220 has perhaps one of the most interesting histories. This exotic sports car came about because of the hard work of a few Jaguar employees known as “The Saturday Club,” who worked on the car solely in their free time. Made in an attempt to modernize previous Jaguar racing cars, the Jaguar XJ220 had an ingeniously designed mid-engine and four-wheel drive system with an aerodynamic body. Made for speed, the body had a downforce of 3,000 lbs at 200 mph. The body also showed off the powerful V12 engine to perfection.
While it was not originally planned to be a production vehicle, there was enough demand for it that Jaguar produced 275. Maisto has recreated this limited production car in a beautiful but subtle green color, perfect for collectors and Jaguar enthusiasts alike. In 1/18 scale, this Jaguar XJ220 is a great piece for any display.
A feat of aeronautical genius, the Jaguar D-Type was the result of much research and study. This gorgeous vehicle was way ahead of its time, incorporating aluminum alloy, an elliptical shape, and a collapsible Marston Aviation Division bag. The longer nose of the 1955 version increased the maximum speed and helped the vehicle to outstrip the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLRs at the 1955 Le Mans.
Adding this Jaguar D-Type #6 1955 Le Mans winner diecast replica to your collection would be a great way to show your love for Jaguar and racing, as well as your respect to those involved in the tragic catastrophe at the 1955 Le Mans race. AUTOart has replicated this famous vehicle driven by Mike Hawthorne in 1/18 scale, complete with the number 6 painted on the side.
