Jaguar: An Icon Re-envisioned Exhibit

The newest exhibit opening at the Petersen Automotive Museum will look at some of Jaguar's most iconic vehicles.

Nov 20, 2013

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.

A 1949 XK120: Named for its top speed of 120 miles per hour, which made it the fastest regular production car at the time, this specific car was the one driven by Emma Stone in the 2013 movie, Gangster Squad.
