This is the eighth title in the now well-established "In Detail" series.
Its subject, the Jaguar XK120, has become one of the immortals of sports car history and remains one of the most beautiful cars ever built.
It took the London Motor Show by storm in 1948, and was built until 1954.
This book is published in association with the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, whose headquarters and museum are on Jaguar's historic Browns Lane site in Coventry.
It is written by the Trust's Archivist who has drawn from company records and archives to provide information that has never been available to enthusiasts before.
This, and its focus on the XK120 alone rather than on the whole XK family, make this book uniquely informative.
The black-and-white photographs have been sourced from the Trust's large collection, and are complemented by specially commissioned colour photographs of some outstanding XK120s.
