Throughout its history as a brand Jaguar has consistently walked the line between style and performance, a balancing act which has made it one of the most iconic and well known British brands of any kind.
That refusal to compromise aesthetic beauty in the pursuit of speed on the track, or speed in pursuit of beauty on the road, has led to the creation of some of the most sought after and well known cars in existence – many of which are household names to this day. As a result it’s easy to see why the Jaguar roster is replete with classics, from heritage vehicles approaching their centenary to high performance modern marvels.
The Jaguar marque took its name from the feline grace of one of its early production models, which boasted the signature swooping curves that would make the brand famous. In the years following the Second World War, Jaguar engineers put into practice many lessons learned from fighter aircraft design to create impressive aerodynamic bodies and powerful engines that led to them being dubbed ‘road planes’. The XK, C and D types all combined that iconic bulbous shape with revolutionary engines to clean up at many high profile races over a 20 year period.
Unlike many manufacturers, however, Jaguar were able to easily translate that success on the track to success on the road. Turning out many production models to extreme critical acclaim, including iconic cars such as the E type and the Mark I and Mark II that are considered among the most beautiful of all time, Jaguar has been able to consistently remain at the very top of its game from then until the present day.
The result of this glittering track record is a stable of production models spanning many decades and countless styles, from one of a kind racing models from the 50s heyday through to modern classics that are less than 20 years old. At the Carrosserie Company we have the skill and dedication to restore any and all Jaguar models to their former glory, using heritage methods and time-honed techniques that do justice to the original engineers. Whether we’re re-constructing a unique vehicle from old photographs and archival research, or touching up the bodywork of a modern classic, we treat every vehicle in our workshop with the same care and attention we show to all our projects.
