In particular, they give a nod to Jaguar's first sports car, the XK120 introduced in 1948. We'll just ignore the SS-100 launched the previous decade by SS Cars, the company that was renamed Jaguar in 1945. The modern F-Type rally cars were unveiled Monday but have already been driven in anger. The cars were recently put through their paces at the Walters Arena rally stage in the south of Wales, and in the coming months they will attend a number of Jaguar-planned events. The cars are...

  • 2018 Lister Thunder

    Revived British sports car marque Lister has unveiled its first new car since the Storm of the 1990s.

Lister has massaged 666 horsepower out of the engine, ensuring the Thunder can hit a top speed of 208 mph. Lister says those numbers make the Thunder the...
