During the 1940's Jaguar produced vehicles known as 'Litre' cars such as the 1.5, 2.5, and 3.5 Litre models. They were powered by engines designed by the Standard Motor Company. The 1.5 Litre engine was supplied by Standard but the larger variants were produced by Jagauar.
Production of the 1.5 Litre car lasted from 1935 through 1949. Horsepower varied over the years as did other various specifications. A four-speed manual gearbox sent power from the four-cylinder engine to the rear wheels. Top speed was over 100 km/h and believed to have been around 115 km/h. By Daniel Vaughan | Nov 2006
