Suffolk SS100

Suffolk SS100 driving uphillSuffolk Sportscars is dedicated to production of the visually exact reproduction of the legendary Jaguar SS100. It is a true and pure Jaguar, fully recognised and accepted by all the Jaguar car clubs around the world.

The Jaguar SS100 was originally designed in 1935 by William Lyons, the founder of Jaguar Cars Limited. You will find a history of the Jaguar SS100 within this section.

The Jaguar SS100 is one of the most important cars ever produced in England. It marked the high point of English sports car design before the start of World War II. When the leading motoring writers of Europe selected their choice of the 100 most important cars of the 20th century, they included the legendary Jaguar SS100. As only 314 were ever made this is certainly an achievement. Every serious book about sports cars includes articles and photographs of the Jaguar SS100. This landmark car acted as the mainspring for the development of the remarkable lineage of post war Jaguar sports cars.

We have now made  over 270 of our Suffolk SS100 Jaguar reproductions and are well on our way to achieving my ambition to make as many as William Lyons.  We hope that this website will give you the confidence in our products and that you may take the opportunity to come and visit us at Woodbridge.  I can tell you that even after  over 20 years of making the SS100, I still get a smile and goosebumps whenever I'm ready to go for a drive.  The overall shape and stying of the car is evocative of the golden age of great pre-war  British sports cars.

At Suffolk Jaguar we combine all the superb visuality of the original SS100  with modern brakes, steering, power and safety to meet the demands of today's driver. This is a great car to go touring in so you can plan to drive hundreds of miles in a day and do so in great comfort. The Jaguar XJ6 is one of the most confortable saloon cars ever built and the suspension set-up on our car uses all the components that made this  level of comfort possible.
