Over the years, Jaguar has built their legacy by producing more exciting front-engine sports cars than almost any other manufacturer. By combining unmistakable proportions with high performance engineering they have created unique sports cars that come with a uniquely British feel. From Dec. 7-Feb. 16, the Petersen Automotive Museum will be paying tribute to this legacy by showcasing five of Jaguar's most iconic vehicles.

These five vehicles are:

Mel Torme's 1937 SS100: Named for its then remarkable top speed of 100 miles per hour this is considered one of the most aesthetically beautiful Jaguar cars and is also one of the rarest with less than 350 produced.
