Softcover. Condition: Very Good+. 2002. Orion.

Dramatic good looks, pure racing pedigree, and sensational performance: when the Jaguar 9600 HP prototype emerged from the factory's gates in 1961, it set a new standard for automotive glory. This gunmetal gray roadster led an exciting life, "modeling" for catalogs, used in publicity stunts, belonging to a high-profile film director, passing to several auto enthusiasts, and finally, arriving in the hands of author Philip Porter. In 1999, through the talents of Jaguar's most skilled specialists, the 9600 HP underwent a total, fanatical restoration. Now it is shared with all the world in a tribute to a legend of the road.
