Jaguar from its very beginning has always been looking around the next curve in automotive design, function and engineering. From that rich history comes a wealth of concept cars which explored new and exciting developments at Jaguar. Some cars graced turn tables at international auto shows, while others were merely exercises in reaching a final conclusion that became the Jaguar's of tomorrow. Here is a brief history of some of those cars made by Jaguar and some of its partners. It makes you wonder, what if...
Grace, Space and Pace!


1952 Jaguar Ghia XK120 Supersonic: The 'Supersonic' style by the renowned Italian coachbuilder, Carrozzeria Ghia, is influenced by the 'jet age' in the early 50's. Ghia would use the Supersonic theme on an Alfa Romeo 1900, Aston Martin and Fiat 8V chassis, as well as three Jaguar XK120's. Two of the Jaguar's were orderedby the Jaguar importer in Paris, and this car (Chassis #679768) was sold to a businessman in Lyon. The cylinder head in this car was modifiedto accommodate three twin-choke Weber carburettors instead of the standard twin SUs. The3.4L DOHC six-cyliner engine is reputed to produce 220bhp. The car was disp[layed at both the London and Paris motorshows in 1954. The two French cars are accounted for, with the whereabouts of the third unknown. This is not only an important piece of Jaguar history, but also a milestone in the development of Italian coachbuilding.

1952 XK120 (Stabilimenti Farina): Known as the Flying Jaguar Coupe, it was built along with two Mk VII based cars by Stabilimenti Farina in 1952 for the Belgian importer/distrubtor for Jaguar. It employed the XK120 Jaguar chassis and powertrain (3.4L DOHC six-cylinder engine), with a Farina coachbuilt body. It was one of the last projects for Farina before its doors clsoed in 1953. Interestingly, the car had never been to the UK until it was shown at Goodwood in 2018.

1954 XK120 SE Coupe Pininfarina: USA Jaguar importer, distributor and dealer Max Hoffman had Pininfarina custom build his interpretation of the iconic Jaguar XK120 Coupe in 1954. Upon completion, Pininfarina took the coupe on tour, with a debut at the 1955 Geneva Auto Show. Hoffman, anxious to take delivery, cancelled their plans after two shows to show the car at other shows; including the Turin show, which couldn't have pleased Pininfarina. The car then disappeared from the public eye until 1978 when a German buyer acquired the car with plans to restore it. It wasn't until 2015 that the car was sold and a serious restoration began. One-off parts such as bumpers and trim were missing and had to be remade with the help of a 3D printer and the interior was reconstructed using a scrap of original leather to match color and grain. At one point, the car was painted maroon, but is now in its original gun metal grey metallic. A beautiful coupe which of all the XK120 concept cars, is truest to the original lines of the car.

1955 XK140 MC (Ghia): Using an XK140 chassis and 210 hp MC engine with C-Type head, Ghia built a very stunning aluminum bodied coupe. It looks very Italian and has strong Maserati and Ferrari design elements along with the obligitory mid-50's fins. Like most concepts, it was a limited production car, with three known examples built. This car is believed to be the last of the three and was originally owned by Originally owned by Mexican actor Ricardo Montalban. I am pretty sure it did not have Corinthian leather!

1957 XK150 S (Bertone): One of three concept XK150's built by Bertone and designed by Franco Scaglione. The body style has been said to be reminicent of the Maserati 3500 GT which was to debut in 1958.

1957 Jaguar XK150 SE Coupe (Zagato) :: A rolling XK150 chassis and 3.4L DOHC six-cylinder XK engine were delivered to Emil Frey (Swiss Jaguar distributor) in 1957. Frey then commissioned Zagato to build and design an alloy body, with the finished car shown at the Geneva Auto Show in 1958. The car was outwardly similar to a Jaguar XK140 that Zagato had designed and built in 1955. A second XK150 Zagato was subsequently built, with both cars making auto show rounds at least until 1960 in Paris. It is widely assumed that there were plans to build more of these Zagato body cars, as a brochure was made to promote them. The Paris car is unaccounted for and its fate unknown.. This car was sold in 1964 for the princely sum of $2500 to its new owner, Frank Freeman of San Diego, California. Freeman drove the car extensively and never sold it. Today, it is owned by his son who is currently having an extensive restoration done to the car.

1958 Jaguar XK150 Ghia-Aigle :: Carrosserie Ghia-Aigle was a Swiss based auto design subsidiary of Carrozzeria Ghia in Italy and many of Ghia's designers worked for Ghia-Aigle. Pietro Frua designed this car for its original Swiss owner, with Jaguar supplying a chassis and drivetrain through its Swiss distributor Emil Frey. Frua chose a 3.4S engine and LHD chassis, which was the top of the XK range in 1958, the 3.9L six-cylinder not becoming available until 1959. The 'S' specification engine produced 250bhp and was couple with a 4-speed plus overdrive transmission. The car has classic Frua styling and hints of Maserati and Lamborghini models to follow are seen in this cars front fenders and roof line. Two, possibly three of the two-door coupes were produced, with the known second car being RHD and sent to its first owner in Paris. Photo taken at Chateau Les Vautours

1959 XK150 Foxbat Sport Estate: Jaguar XK enthusiast Geoffrey Stevens wanted a Jaguar based estate he and his wife could travel in with their two dogs. So, Jaguar not making one, in 1975-77 he took a rusty Jaguar XK150 and mated it with the back end of a Morris Minor Traveler and created the Foxbat. The car is believed to have gotten its name from the fast, powerful MiG-25 Foxbat, which at the time was an enigma to NATO forces until one fell into Western hands in 1976 when a Soviet pilot defected in one. The car has standard XK150 mechanicals with a 3.4L six-cylinder DOHC engine producing 190 bhp, mated to a 4-speed gearbox with overdrive.

1959 XK150 Foxbat Sport Estate: The Morris wooden frame body work is fitted where the trunk would normally be and it has a fold down rear seat. Stevens owned the car for a few years before it was sold to a collector in France, where it lived until about 2008 before coming back to the UK where it has passed through a couple of hands. There were apparently two Foxbats built, this one being the only survivor. The car today retains its original (if somewhat worn) interior and exterior. A reminder of when older cars like this werent worth their weight in gold and a canvas for the inventive visionaries like Stevens to create their own masterpiece.

1960-62 XK150 S Hardin Fastback: This car originally started life in 1960 as one of the 200 XK150 S FHC's produced. It was purchased by a man named Eric Richardson who drove the car great distances most weekends from his work as a senior partner in a large London solicitor firm to his family home a few hundred miles away. Covering long distances regularly he wanted to get to and from as quickly as possible. He constantly petitioned Jaguar for help in making the car go faster. Jaguar originally told him the car was fast enough, but they finally relented to do so by providing him a higher rear axle final drive ratio and D-Type speedometer to indicate the higher speeds he drove than the 135 mph the car would do in standard trim.
1960-62 XK150 S Hardin Fastback: By 1962, his young son growing taller, Richardson sought out L&R Hartin Panels to make a fastback with more headroom. Aside from the new rear panels influenced by Aston Martin, the XK150 front panels were also modified to make this lovely fastback coupe. It was driven for many years by its first owner, having the first engine worn out and replaced in 1964. Passed through subsequent owners, it was restored in 1990 and has been enthusiastically used in historic rallies and other events to this day.
1963 Jaguar D-Type Michelotti Le Mans: Giovani Michelotti was a star of auto design. Having designed cars for Ferrari, Lancia, Alfa Romeo and Maserati, his work with British manufacturers is best known, particularly with Triumph (Spitfire, Stag and TR6). Perhaps my favorite of his workthough is what he did for BMW when he styled the 2002. Michelotti was always a big fan of Jaguar and he took the opportunity to buy the chassis of a 1955 D-Type that was wrecked at Le Mans in 1958 and designed this beautiful coupe. The Jaguar D-Type Michelotti Le Mans debuted at the Geneva auto show in 1963, with a current Jaguar E-Type six-cylinder DOHC engine of 4.2L . Originally painted light metallic blue, then red and currently in its light blue again, this truly gives a glimpse of what a modern Jaguar production sedan of the early 60's could have looked like.

1962 Mk2 County Estate: An idea and project started by Mike Hawthorn and Duncan Hamilton based on the original 3.4 saloon and styled by Roy Nockolds, Hamilton pushed for Sir William Lyons to make the car after Hawthorne's death in 1959. It was not till 1962 that Jaguar built an estate car based now on a Mk2 3.8 and bodied by Jones Brothers. When new, the car was used as a race support vehicle by Jaguar in Europe and later as a factory hack. Later sold, it was restored and converted to wire wheels in the 1970's.

1965 3.4S 'Police': Between 1967-68, the Metropolitan Police had 83 S-Type police cars made, with three known to survive today. Valued for their speed and handling, the police version had 150 differences from the production car and were created on a separate assembly line. Chief among those differences, lights and sirens excluded, the cars had no tachometer and the manual transmission only had three selections (Park, Drive and Reverse). The wood dash and leather interior were replaced by a steel dash, plastic and ambla upholstery. The cars assigned to motorway patrol and pursuit were painted white and area cars were painted black. At a time when crooks were using the MkII and S-Type as get away cars, the police were given a tool which put them on even footing with the criminals.

1966 Jaguar Bertone FT (3.8S): In late 1965, Jaguar importer for N. Italy Ferruccio Tarchini commissioned Bertone to build a four-seater coupe for its 1966 Geneva Motor Show stand. Initially, it was planned to distribute this car as a limited production model, but the plan soon fell through after a single car was made. Jaguar delivered a "drive away 3.8S chassis" (#1B78923DN) on which Bertone chief designer Marcello Gandini created a design that retained the Jaguar style but had a more angular shaped look. The car was displayed on the Bertone stand at Geneva in 1966, alongside the prototype Lamborghini Miura.

1966 Jaguar Bertone FT (3.8S): Named the Jaguar Bertone FT for Ferruccio Tarchini, the company founder, only one car was built on a 3.8S chassis. Giorgio Tarchini, the Jaguar importer for N. Italy ordered six more chassis from Jaguar, which supplied new 420 chassis in late 1966, early 1967, of which only one car was apparently built. Since both cars share almost identical bodywork, this has created some confusion that the 1966 FT Bertone was built on a 420 chassis. First road registered in 1969, the original FT Bertone 3.8S car is believed to be still with the Tarchini family since new. Now in this shade of blue from its original gold body color and red interior.

1966 Jaguar Bertone FT 3.8S and 420 Concepts
Model by MATRIX 1/43

1966 Jaguar Bertone FT (420): There is a degree of confusion and misinformation about the 3.8S and 420 based cars made by Bertone for Giorgio Tarchini, the Jaguar importer for Northern Italy. I believe these facts are accurate. The 3.8S based car (Chassis #1B 78923) was shipped to Tarchini as a complete knock down (CKD) in late 1965, after which he sent the CKD to Bertone to make the coupe body and interior. That car was subsequently shown at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show on the Bertone stand. It shared the unfortunate distinction of sharing the Bertone stand with the new Lamborghini Miura which garnered the lions share of attention on Bertone’s stand. However, sufficient interest existed in the FT Coupe (named for the company founder Ferucchio Tarchini), that Giorgio Tarchini decided to go ahead with his plans to build a limited production run of these cars. The 3.8S based car was evaluated by Jaguar as and was eventually road certified in 1969, remaining under long-term ownership of the Tarchini family. It was also repainted dark blue with its tan interior rather than the gold metallic paint job it wore in Geneva.
Model by MATRIX 1/43
1966 Jaguar Bertone FT (420): With Tarchini keen to make a run of FT Bertone Coupes he contacted Jaguar about buying CKD chassis. With the 3.8S nearing the end of its production life, six or seven CKD chassis of the new 420 were sent to Italy instead. It is unclear why only one car was built if indeed he dd receive that number of chassis, but that one 420 based car (Ch. #1A 25417 DN) was the only car completed. What happened to the other chassis is not known. What is known, is that the 420 based car was sold to a Spanish aristocrat in Madrid. The car was sold after twenty years in storage at a Madrid Jaguar dealer in 2012, where in 2015 it was given a minor restoration and repainted black from its original emerald green by its then owner. Its original black leather interior was retained. While underneath they are quite different, externally (other than the mirrors, color of the bodywork and the interiors, steel wheels on the 3.8S based car, wire wheels on the 420 based car), they look the same.

1966 Jaguar 3.8S Frua Coupe: In 1966, Pietro Frua transformed the iconic shape of the Jaguar 3.8S into a stylish two-door coupe. The one-off Jaguar coupe was commissioned by fellow Italian, Francesco Respino. A rolling floor pan and drivetrain were delivered to the small Turin carrozzerie, the naked chassis (1B78869DN) was acquired from Jaguar through the Turin Jaguar dealer Fattori e Montani. It was a left-hand drive car with a 3.8 liter engine and manual transmission with overdrive. In three months, Frua bodied the car and had it ready for the 1966 Geneva Auto Show, where it appeared next to Frua's restyled E-Type Coupe done for John Coombs.

1966 Jaguar 3.8S Frua Coupe: Frua was a small firm and unlike larger design firms such as Pinninfarina, positioned to accept single commissions. Best known for its designs for Maserati, several Maserati design elements appear in the Frua S-Type. The twin headlamps, C-pillar and rear quarter panels are reminiscent of Frua's Maserati Quattroport. Frua used the original Jaguar dash and rear seat but incorporated a Maserati steering wheel and front bucket seats into the car's interior. Originally painted opalescent light blue, the car was repainted British Racing Green after Respino sold he car to a Swiss buyer in the late 60's. The car was sold to a UK buyer in 1978 and subsequently underwent a complete restoration and returned to its original color. It has remained in the UK under the care of several owners since.

1966 Jaguar 3.8S Frua Coupe: British Maserati? - In 1966, Frua created and built a one-off coupe design for a customer based on the Jaguar 3.8S saloon. Carrying design elements of Frua's Maserati Quattroporte, the stylish coupe debuted at the 1966 Geneva Auto Show. Just as the similar Jaguar based coupe Bertone introduced at the same show was overshadowed by the Lamborghini Miura, the Frua coupe appeared on the same stand as Frua's take on the Jaguar E-Type FHC made for Jaguar dealer and race tuner John Coombs. It was also the show Jaguar's new E-Type 2+2 Coupe was introduced. Did Frua's Italian design improve on the classic looks of the small Jaguar saloon it was based on?

1966 Jaguar 3.8S Frua Coupe: The car in its current color of Opalescent Light Blue. The lighter color shows off the cars lines and gives it a more modern look, even though it was a classic 1960's Jaguar color. A great looking GT car!

1962 Mk2 County Estate: This is how the County was first built and used for race support in the early 60's. Jaguar did not have the capacity to build an estate wagon and was primarily focussed on the development of the XJ6 project, so it was never progressed beyond this concept and prototype. It would not be until 40 years later that Jaguar would finally introduce an estate wagon with the X-Type. This and other Jaguar estate car conversions built by coachbuilders which came later lead you to ponder what could have been...

1967 420 Radford Convertible: Harold Radford was a English coachbuilding company, which started in the late 1940's making coachbuilt bodies for Bentleys. Radford's became famous for the Mini coachwork and perhaps their most beautiful design, the Aston Martin DB5 Shooting Brake. The company was bought and sold several times over the years and by 1967, had become a conversion specialist for exisiting production vehicles. In 1967 a Scottish businessman had Radford design a two-door convertible around the new Jaguar 420 four-door saloon. Finished in Opalescent Silver Gray with dark blue interior, only one car was ever built. The car looks splendid with the top up, very much a nice coupe styling thats lost with the top down.

1975 XJC Avon-Stevens Convertible: New Avon was a coach building firm founded in Warwick, England in 1919 and was not too far from Jaguar's eventual home in Coventry. The firm had undergone several ownership change and was purchased in 1973 by Graham Hudson and in 1978 became Ladbroke Avon. Warwick design consultant Tony Stevens was approached by a customer who wanted a British high-class open car, because "The Aston Martin was too small inside, the Rolls-Royce too big outside." Stevens approached Hudson with a cut-down Corgi toy of the XJC and the Stevens designed convertible was launched in 1978 using XJC donor cars. A total of about 30 of the XJC convertibles were built.

1967 Bertone Pirana: John Anstey, publisher of the Daily Telegraph commissioned the creation of this car by Bertone for the 1967 London Motor Show at Earl's Court. With the collaboration of Jaguar, it was based on the 4.2L E-Type Coupe as a fully functional concept car and was built in six-months. Part of the papers efforts to increase circulation, it featured the car on the front page billed as the "Star of the Show", which it was. The Pirana's exterior, especially the side profile and chopped Kamm-style tail, had an obvious influence on the 4-passenger Lamborghini Espada coupe which was introduced a year later. The primary Bertone designer on the Pirana was Marcello Gandini, perhaps best known for styling the Lamborghini Countach and Miura. He was styling the Alfa Romeo Montreal at the time and styling cues from that car can also be seen in the Pirana. It was transformed into a 2+2 after appearances at the New York and Montreal Auto Shows and painted BRG sometime in the early 1980's. It is now in its original silver and resides in S. California.

1973 Pininfarina XJ12: Pininfarina presented their styling version of the XJ12 at the 1973 London Motor Show. It was offered as a styling proposal at the time Jaguar was making production plans for the XJ40. While Jaguar ultimately favored a in-house design, one cant help but wonder if that design was not influenced, at least in part, by this car. After its introduction, Pininfarina continued to tour the car at other auto shows with considerable acclaim. Based on a Series II XJ platform, the car was powered by the flagship 5.3L V12 engine introduced in 1972. At a time when Jaguar was about to introduce a refresh of the original XJ from 1968, this design was considered too far a departure from traditional Jaguar styling. Jaguar would however realize that the styling they were pursuing at the time wasnt advanced far enough and would make a slight departure with "traditional" styling when the XJ40 was finally introduced in the late 80's. This car also has styling cues Pininfarina employed on the Ferrari 400 and closely resembles that car from the side view.

1978 Pininfarina XJ Spider: Created for the 1978 British Motor Show, the XJ Spider was a concept designed to show what a Jaguar two-seat sports car should look like as a righful successor to the E-Type. Based on an XJS platform and using the 5.3L V-12 engine, the car was given serious consideration and at one time was referred to as the F-Type. Unfortunately Jaguar was too slow to develop this concept and it never saw production.

1977 Bertone Ascot: If anything, Bertone should be given a perseverance award for trying to entice Jaguar to adopt one of their concepts. Bertone did several concepts based on Jaguar mechanicals, three of which were Bertone initiated concepts and two which were private commissions the styling house hoped would lead to Jaguar production work. While only elements of one would make it into the production XJ40, the Ascot which Jaguar turned down would become the Lamborghini Espada. It may have been that Bertone designs penned by Marcello Gandini were just a bit too angular and radical for the more traditional rounded, conservative styling at Jaguar.
Model by Matrix 1/43
1977 Bertone Ascot: The Jaguar Ascot seen here, was designed in 1977, when Gandini was in his full wedge phase of design as seen in the Lancia Stratos, Lamborghini Countach and Alfa Romeo Carabo. Using a shortened Jaguars XJ-S platform and 5.3L V-12 engine, Gandini created a stunning car, borrowing heavily from the previous years Ferrari 308 Rainbow. First unveiled at the 1977 Turin Motor Show, the car was originally painted white for its debut, but subsequently resprayed in gold which I believe shows off its aluminum bodied styling much better. It turned out not to be a design “Jaguar could not live without”, but a fabulous part of its history all the same.

Bertone Jaguar Concepts: Bertone built several Jaguar dream, or concept cars over the years. Beginning with the XK150S in 1957; the 3.8S FT in 1966; the Pirana in 1967 based on an E-Type 2+2; 1977's Ascot developed on an XJS chassis and finally the XJ8 inspired B99 in 2011, created for Bertone's 99th Anniversary. Here are four of the five cars from my collection on the shore of Lake Como, a fitting backdrop to these Bertone Italian designed Jaguars.

1981 XJ6 SIII Ladbroke-Avon: Ladbroke-Avon built the XJ Shooting Brakes in the early 1980's, based on the Series III XJ6. They had planned to build 250 cars, each to the customer's individual specifications. The conversion made the original SIII bodywork seem a bit ackward, but it offered a 6'7" cargo deck (58 cu ft of cargo space) with the rear seats folded; retaining the S11 XJ6's overall length. There were no mechanical modifications to the car, but a rear suspension modification approved by Jaguar was available. Interestingly, the rear hatch came from the Renault 5. Alas, not one of the best looking saloon to shooting brake conversions, only twenty cars were converted and Jaguar itself would not build an estate for twenty more years.
Model by MATRIX 1/43
1983 XJ-S HE Lynx Eventer: Jaguar specialist Lynx got into specialized body building in 1982 when they began producing convertible versions of the XJS. This lasted until 1988 when Jaguar introduced the production convertible version of the car. Alongside the convertible, Lynx created this lovely shooting brake in 1983, to offer customers a V12 powered wagon. Looking like it was a Jaguar production car, Lynx finished each conversion to a very high standard of finish. Approximately 67 Eventers were converted by Lynx.
Model by PREMIUMX 1/43
1984 XJ-S HE Arden AJ3 Station Car : The German firm Arden built five AJ3 Station Car's on 1984 XJ-S platforms. Visually very similar to the Lynx Eventer, the Arden cars were perhaps slightlt better appointed and had a better overall aerodynamic shape. Why more than five were not built is unknown, but Arden made a very attractive package from the XJ-S and what Jaguar could have done had they the resources and capacity to make a shooting brake from a great touring car.
Model by ALEZAN 1/43
1989 XJ40 Shooting Brake: Believed to be one of only three shooting brakes built by Humberstone on a XJ40 platform for Jaguar dealer Hatfield's of Sheffield. Of the three cars, Hatfields, one of Jaguar's oldest dealers, sold two and Mr. Humberstone kept one for himself. Of the conversion of saloons to shooting brakes, this is perhaps one of the best conversions, making it look as if it could have come from the factory in this configuration. A stylish looking wagon for the time, it would have been a great grocery getter with both looks and performance.

1998 XK180: The XK180 made its debut at the 1998 Paris Motor Show, with a second car debuting at the 2000 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The Detroit car was in the same green as the Paris car, but it was LHD and had a brown interior. For awhile, the car was seriously considered for production, but lack of commitment from Ford killed that project. Parts of the XK180 did make it into production on the Jaguar XKR.

2003 R-D6: From the Jaguar press release: "The R-D6 concept signals a dynamic future for the Jaguar marque, true to its core values of providing sporting dynamic luxury." "Using aluminium and composite materials for the chassis and body, R-D6 weighs just 1500kg." "With horsepower in excess of 230bhp, the V6 diesel engine endows R-D6 with the pace to satisfy its looks and R-Performance rating. Acceleration from standstill to the benchmark 60mph takes less than six seconds. Top speed is an electronically limited 155mph. Notice some of the style features that carried over to the XF. Wow!

2010 C-X75: The C-X75 was named in honour of Jaguar’s 75th anniversary, the C stands for concept and the X for experimental. It is a plug-in hybrid, two-seat, concept car from Jaguar which debuted at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. The C-X75 produces 778 horsepower through four electric motors, each of which drives one of the four wheels and can reach a top speed of . The batteries driving these motors are recharged using two diesel-fed micro gas turbines. Jaguar plans a limited production run of these cars beginning in 2013.

2011 B99: Bertone produced this beautiful 4-door compact executive saloon concept, first shown at the 201 Geneva Motor Show. The B99 was powered by two electric motors driving the rear wheels and producing 201 bhp; with a 1.4L gas engine for range extention. Combined, the motors produced 570 bhp. The B99 name stands for B for Bertone and 99 for Bertone's 99th year in operation. Jaguar declined the opportunity to explore production options with Bertone on the B99, a potential successor to the X-Type.
