Riassunto: Dramatic good looks, a pure racing pedigree, and genuinely sensational performance: when its prototype emerged from the factory's gates in 1961, the Jaguar 9600 HP set a new standard for automotive glory. Even now, nearly four decades later, its fame has endured. After a pre-release period of intense testing by leading magazines and distinguished international journalists (not to mention breaking speed barriers) this gunmetal gray roadster led an exciting life. It "modeled" for catalogs, was used for publicity stunts, belonged to a high-profile film director, passed to several auto enthusiasts, and finally, into the hands of author Philip Porter. In 1999, through the talents of Jaguar's most skilled specialists, the 9600 HP underwent a total, fanatical restorations-and now it is shared with all the world. Enjoy this tribute to a legend of the road-how it came to be, what it did, who owned it, and how it was restored to its former magnificence.
About the Author: Philip Porter is the world's leading authority on Jaguar cars, the company and the personalities, with 12 Jaguar books to his name, including an award-winning definitive history of the E-type. He is one of the World's leading Jaguar sports car collectors and also owns the E-type which appeared in The Italian Job. He has just written and published the first in a set of CD-Roms on the E-type. His other interests range from The Sherlock Holmes Society to racing airships.
