January 2017 News Round Up

Jaguar XJ40 30th Anniversary Commemorative Book



Welcome to the latest Xclusively Jaguar News Round Up!


With this being the first issue for 2017 I would like to wish everyone who reads Xclusively Jaguar News a Very Happy New Year !!!


This month’s cover picture features the forthcoming book celebrating the 30th anniversary of XJ40, details of which appear below. Rob Jenner and I have ordered one each, so that we don’t fight over who should read it first! From the previews I have seen, it’ll be a good way to invest any cash you’ve been given for Christmas!

XJ40 30th Anniversary Book now ready to order!

Some hard facts first: a 30x30cm (12×12”) hardcover book, dark green linen silver-embossed cover and spine, with a separate dust cover.

Over 100 full-colour pages, featuring more than a dozen different authors, including forewords from Sir John Egan and Jim Randle.

The stories cover more than 3 decades of history, starting with the XJ40’s early design and development all the way up to the 30th anniversary celebration in Dunkeld this summer.

We wanted this to be a true coffee table book, and that means: pictures!

I think we have covered that angle rather well: it features visuals from 15 different photographers/organisations…

Illustrations were kindly submitted by the people closely involved with the XJ40 launch, as well as the JHT and Paul Skilleter archives, and we’re proud to feature unique pictures from the early 1980s high-speed tests in Italy by Ed Abbott!

This is a non-profit project, with each purchaser paying only for the printing/packaging costs divided by the number of copies (this edition is limited to 100 copies).

The book price is £38.50 and includes sturdy bespoke cardboard packaging. Shipping to UK is an additional £5, making a grand total of £43.50.
