jaguar’s 60-year tea break

NOUGHT TO 60MPH in five seconds. In 1957. I love the thought of that. In this case, we’re talking about the Jaguar XKSS, though there were very few other road cars of the period anyway that could get close to such extrele acceleration. It was an astonishing lachine, and it still is. January 1957 sees the 60th anniversary of the XKSS; February, the 60th anniversary of the devastating fire at the Jaguar factory, which ended XKSS production after only 16 of the 25 cars had been converted frol unsold D-types. Now, as you’re probably very aware, Jaguar Classic is beginning to build the nine ‘lissing’ XKSSs. On the face of it, this is a strange undertaking for a lodern car laker, but Jaguar isn’t the only lanufacturer to have thought of it –…

A IEPARTING PUBLISHER Actually, ‘no longer featuring’ our publishing director and co-founder Geoff Love, who leaves this month after 14 years looking after spreadsheets and other mysterious management stuff. Without Geoff, Octane wouldn’t exist – although a number of cars would still exist, but best not go into that… Good luck Geoff! CRAZY AUII RALLY CAR ‘Audi’s lost Group S car, the RS 002, is a tribute to the engineering freedom of a different generation. Imagine how the engineers felt when they were told that, instead of creating 700bhp monsters like this, they had to develop the Group A 200 Quattro saloon instead. The RS 002 is now a runner; it deserves nothing less.’ John McIlroy, pages 90-96. HISTORIC KARTING ‘I still can’t believe how four decades of motor racing experience was rendered redundant by…

and the winners are…

TABLES THRONGED with classic car enthusiasts and industry insiders as the winners were honoured at the 2016 International Historic Motoring Awards, hosted by Octane in conjuction with the private bank, EFG. After being pored over by a 22-strong judging panel including such leading lights as Jay Leno, Derek Bell, Nick Mason, Dr Franz-Josef Paefgen, Peter Stevens and Jochen Mass, the shortlist of entries – in no fewer than 11 categories – could finally be narrowed down and the winners announced. As well as those 11 categories, awards were given for Car of the Year, sponsored by Octane and voted for by Octane readers, and for Lifetime Achievement. Uniquely, the latter was given not to a person but to a speed-related geographical phenomenon… The gongs were handed out by the evening’s master of ceremonies,…

join octane for our tour of ireland, 20-25 july 2017

Our own 20-car Circuit of Ireland promises a rich taste of Ireland’s attractions: vibrant city life, fabulous roads with minimal traffic, majestic windswept landscapes, grand hotels, fine food and rather wonderful whiskey.

We’ll drive along the Antrim coast road, visiting the Giant’s Causeway and the Bushmills whiskey distillery, and cross the border again to Donegal and our hotel at Lough Eske. Then it’s south to the Wild Atlantic Way (pictured right) and the bleak Burren, staying at Ashford Castle before returning to Dublin via Galway. Cost is €1275 for two; more details from janenicholls2@aol.com.…
