In sedans, Jaguar offers the new & �Two-Point-Four�. This sports-touring car brings to the comfort of a four-door, five-passenger family sedan the exciting performance of a true sports car. Finally there is the ultimate in four-door sedan luxury and elegance...the new Mark VIII (available soon, but unfortunately not at the time this advertisement was prepared. Shown is the Mark VII). While the sports car purist will prefer the practical pleasures of the famous Jaguar four-speed manual shift, automatic transmission is available on all Jaguars with the exception of the XK-140 sports roadster and delivers truly remarkable performance by any standards. Each of these cars is made in the enduring traditions of British craftsmanship, from the heavyweight steel of the bodies to the hand-fitted glove leather upholstery within. Yet Jaguar prices remain well within the range of the medium-priced domestic car.
Buying a Jaguar
To best appreciate Jaguar performance, we urge you to drive a Jaguar, heeding this word from the editors of Road & Track: "The buyer who tests a prospective new car by taking a demonstration run around the block is an unwise buyer, and in the case of Jaguar its true riding qualities are best demonstrated by making an extended test over all types of roads."
Jaguar dealers are located throughout the U.S.A. and Canada. Through them you will receive expert Jaguar service from factory-trained personnel (a complete factory inventory of parts is maintained in the U. S. A.). For the location of your nearest Jaguar dealer or further details, write Jaguar Cars North American Corporation, 32 East 57th St., New York 22, N. Y., Dept. B.
*Of course, Jaguar also makes a competition car—the "D" type. Recent winner of the 1956 Le Mans 24-hour Grand Prix of Endurance, this car is virtually a "proving ground" for innovations of safety and performance. From its predecessor, the "C" type Jaguar, came the basic engineering characteristics of the "XK" models shown here.
