1959 Jaguar MkI 3.4 Litre in British Racing Green with Green Hide and Green Carpets.
Sleek and fast, Jaguar cars were the brainchild of William Lyons, who began by designing motorcycle sidecars. He set up the Swallow Sidecar Company in 1922, but by 1927 his thoughts had drifted to cars and in 1931 he launched the SS1.
First launched in 1955, the MkI was Jaguar's first compact unitary saloon car. The 2.4 MkI was a new concept in saloon cars with its small size and practicality, at a price that introduced Jaguar to a whole new set of potential buyers. The 3.4 MkI, released in 1957, used a bigger 210bhp engine with the option of automatic transmission, making the compact Jaguar into a 120mph car.
