OUR RACING MILESTONES
1948-1954 – SILVERSTONE & LE MANS
An all-new sports car, and the test-bed for Jaguar’s revolutionary XK engine, the XK120 is ranked the fastest production car in the world. In 1949, the XK120 takes the chequered flag at Silverstone and a year later, three XK120s make their debut at Le Mans. It’s the beginning of a new era in motor racing.
1951-1953 – LE MANS
In 1951, aircraft engineer Malcolm Sayer joins Jaguar and brings with him aeronautical discipline and excellence. His first collaboration, the C-Type, wins at Le Mans and second-car driver Stirling Moss breaks the lap record. In 1953, the C-Type wins again at Le Mans and takes three of the top four places.
1954-1957 – LE MANS
Bad weather robs the D-Type of victory at Le Mans in 1954, even after recording a shattering top speed of 170 mph. However, the streamlined car fights back to win in 1955, 1956 and 1957 – a year in which it takes five of the top six places. The D-Type remains to this day one of the most successful racing cars ever built.

1983-1991 – DAYTONA 24 HOURS & LE MANS
The XJR closed-cockpit cars prove formidable on the world’s long distance endurance circuits – and non more so than the 1988 XJR-9.
