Introduction



During the 1930's, and under the leadership of founder William Lyons, Jaguar created its first sports car - the "SS".

The SS90 of 1935 was the first off the line, and used a 2.6-litre engine which capable of 90 mph. It was soon replaced however by the 125 hp 3.5-litre SS100, a true 100 mph sports car.

Lyons was a talented stylist, and penned the car himself, and the vehicle is now generally considered to be one of the best-looking pre-war sports cars.

While not pioneering any technical innovation that characterised the post-war Jaguar models, no one could deny its fine performance, handling, styling, build quality and competitive price.
