In the twenty years between 1950 and 1970, Jaguar produced no fewer than six different big saloon models, all of them powered by the legendary XK twin-cam six-cylinder engine. The first design covered the 1950s and began wwith the Mk VII, a Mk VIII in 1956 and then a Mk IX in 1958.
The second design covered the 1960s, beginning with the Mk X in 1961, which in turn became a 420G in 1966. Running parallel with these big saloons after 1955 were the smaller sports saloons, the Mk I, Mk 2, S type and 420 models.
The story of these cars is traced through 51 articles which include model introductions, driving impressions, road, comparison and long term tests plus performance data.
