Sleek, stylish, and instantly recognizable, Jaguar cars have been a favorite of collectors for decades. A quick trip to any classic car show around Malibu or Brentwood will show you as much. Check out our favorite classic Jaguar cars here at Jaguar Santa Monica.

Old Jaguar Cars

While the SS was the first of a long line of well-appointed vehicles, it isn’t the most famous of the line. There have been several showstoppers over the years that have won the hearts of Pacific Palisades collectors, including:

  • Jaguar XK120: Produced from 1948 – 1954, the wood frame roadster was, at one point, one of the fastest cars in the world, capable of reaching speeds up to 120 mph. Its durable aluminum body made it a favorite of racers. A special version available offered a superior engine.
  • Jaguar E-Type: Built and sold in the UK and the US from 1961 to 1975, the Jaguar E Type was one of the most recognizable sport coupes of its age. The car, with its two-door body and long nose, housed a 4.2L engine capable of making the leap from 0-60 mph in under seven seconds – an impressive feat for production vehicles of the time. An electric version of the car, the Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero, was featured in 2018 at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
  • Jaguar VJ6: The XJ6, often considered the “finest Jaguar ever produced,” is a stunning luxury sedan favored by British Royalty and members of Parliament. The sedan has been in production since 1968 and, in its current form, features luxury appointments like leather, wood trim, and power amenities.
