1950s Jaguars had a lot of character and style. We found a pretty nice list on Discovery UK, but here are our top favorites.

Jaguar Mark VII

The Mark VII was truly the beginning of a new era. This was the first Jaguar to offer a manual gearbox option. Also, this model incorporated a brand new 3.4-litre straight-six XK engine. This one was a game-changer for sure.

Jaguar Mark 2

The Mark 2 was an innovation in more ways than one. Its new sleek style became an inspiration for other cars to come. Furthermore, the impressive 220 horsepower and sportscar-like handling made this a unique ride.

Jaguar XK140 SE

The Jaguar Xk140 is still considered to be one of the most attractive sports cars ever made. Powered by a 3.4-liter straight-six, this thing could really move. The SE boosted the horsepower to 210 among other improvements making it one of the best 1950s Jaguars.
