The Jaguar XK8 was launched to great acclaim in 1996 as the successor to the XJS, and the model range has been built on ever since.

Nearly 10 years after its launch, the styling remains virtually unchanged, which says a lot for the original concept. This fascinating, all-color book is essential reading for all XK8 owners and enthusiasts.

It was code-named X100 and it was to be Jaguar's latest sports cars, featuring both coupe and convertible coachwork. It was to have an all-new V8 engine and it was to replace the XJS. It would also ultimately have the most powerful forced-induction engine of any production Jaguar road card and it had a lot riding on its success. It was the XK8 - a sleek, purposeful grand tourer in the Jaguar tradition. Graham Robson, one-time Jaguar apprentice and a motoring historian with several other Jaguar books to his credit, tells the story of one of the twentieth century's most beautiful sports car, from its conception to the end of the line for both it and the factory it was built in.

A Picture History of the First Forty Years

Young Henry Ford is a visual and textual presentation of the first forty years of Henry Ford—an American farm boy who became one of the greatest manufacturers of modern times and profoundly impacted the habits of American life. In Young Henry Ford, Sidney Olson dispels some of the myths attached to this automobile legend, going beyond the Henry Ford of mass production and the five-dollar day, and offers a more intimate understanding of Henry Ford and the time he lived in. Through hundreds of restored photographs, including some of Ford's own taken with his first camera, Young Henry Ford revisits an America now gone—of long days on the farm, travel by horse and buggy, and one-room schoolhouses. Some of the rare illustrations include the first picture of Henry Ford, photos from Edsel's childhood, snapshots of the interior and exterior of the Ford homestead, Clara and Henry's wedding invitation, and photos of the early stages of the first automobile.

Jaguar is a beautifully photographed guide to the best Jaguar sports and saloon cars stretching back to the pre-war roadster, the SS100. Featuring specially commissioned photography, the book is arranged in chronological order, starting with Sir William Lyons' nascent marque of the 1930s. It was only after the war when the work of aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer created the beautiful curves of the XK120 that the company became a world beater. The D-type brought the company sporting success at Le Mans, leading to a car that became emblematic of London in the swinging 60s, the E-type Jaguar. Production increased in the 1960s with the Mark I and Mark II saloons, latterly adopted by Inspector Morse. The Silk Cut Jaguar XJR-9 repeated the Le Mans success in the 1980s, but it was the sale of the company to Ford in 1990 that produced new models, the retro-styled S-type saloon and the E-type inspired XK8 sportscar. Sold to Tata Motors in 2008, the company has gone on to release more premium sportscars and prestige saloons, the Jaguar XF, the new XJ-series and the much-desired Jaguar F-type R.
