Jaguar: History & Cars

Overview

Founded by William Lyons during the 1920s as the Swallow Sidecar Company, Jaguar Cars can trace its heritage back to the golden age of motoring. Early Swallow products were essentially re-bodied Austin Sevens.

For obvious reasons the company changed its name again after World War Two to Jaguar Cars and moved from its original factory in Blackpool, England, to Browns Lane in Coventry.
