The SS100 was built between 1936 and 1940 by SS Cars Ltd of Coventry, England. The nomenclature was to reflect the theoretical 100mph maximum speed and once approved by Sir William Lyons, the name 'Jaguar' was given to a new saloon version in 1936. Widely considered to be one of the most aesthetically pleasing Jaguar cars ever built, it is also one of the rarest with only 198 of the 2.5-litre and 116 of the 3.5-litre models being made. Most stayed on the home market but 49 were exported. Cars in good condition will now regularly fetch in excess of £300,000. It is of little surprise, rather like its later stable mates, the C and D-Type, that those of us of a more impecunious persuasion looked for an alternative and a number of boutique car manufacturers then set about to feed this demand, supplying good quality recreations at a fraction of the cost of a real one. Built in 2000, this Jaguar SS100 recreation is finished in Mason's Black with matching black mohair hood and black hide interior. The car has been built to the highest standard by the previous engineer/owner and has included various advantageous improvements to the chassis with most of the component parts supplied by Roger
Incredible 1938 Jaguar SS100 3 1/2 Litre Roadster This 1938 Jaguar S.S. 100 is one of three originally imported into the Netherlands and has been under the same ownership since 1959. This S.S. 100 is in generally un-restored condition apart from a re-spray in British Racing Green carried out circa 1967. The engine block was exchanged around 1960 for one taken from a 3 1/2 litre Jaguar Mark V. However, the cylinder head is still the original high-performance S.S. unit, cast in bronze. The gearbox is likewise original. The bodywork is in need of restoration as is the bright-work. Various parts were re-chromed in the 1960s and could now use another re-chroming. The interior was re-upholstered in the 1970s and is in generally good condition. The side windows are missing but the original pocket behind the seats for storing them when the top is down is still there. Dashboard instruments and dials are original and functioning. The S.S. 100 was one of the fastest and best-handling sports cars of its day, as its competition record both before and after the war bears witness to. Gullwing Motor Cars is proud to offer you with the rare opportunity to acquire an example of the model that can be
