The visitors of the Earl‘s Court Motor Show were amazed when William Lyons (founder of Jaguar) presented this gentleman coupé in 1938. In terms of aesthetics, power and sportiness, the SS100 Coupé was on a par with comparable cars from the continent. And, the solitary two-seater was similarly expensive: an impressive 595 pounds sterling made the glider with a fixed roof even the most expensive representative of the classic SS models. This SS was also made in Coventry. The aluminum body was handcrafted and then carefully mounted on a wooden frame. In addition, under the hood, the car received the spectrum of the technical options available at the time and a special cladding on the rear axle.
