Jaguars Across America

    70 minutes

Filmed from coast to coast, this highly praised documentary uses a feast of fascinating archive footage, as well as a considerable amount of original video, to tell the story of the extraordinary affection Jaguar has had in America.Since the beginning of the 1950s, Jaguar has been one of the most revered names in the US sports car market. The love affair began when the incredibly beautiful XK120 was launched at the end of the 1940s, with Hollywood legend Clark Gable buying one of the first cars to arrive and then it seemed every other serious motoring enthusiast was keen to follow. The love affair continued with the subsequent launches of the faster XK140 and XK150 in the mid 50s and reached an even greater level of adulation when the XKE (e type) was first shown in the US at the 1961 New York Auto Show. Many of the company's other models have enjoyed similar success, and to this day, Jaguar is still one of the most sought after cars in the country, as this revealing film shows.
