The SS Jaguar 100 was a two-seat sports car manufactured from 1936 to 1940. At the time, Jaguar was the name of the model and the company was called SS Cars Ltd. During World War II, the manufacturer changed its name to Jaguar to avoid any association with the Nazis. 100 refers to the maximum speed claimed to be reached by the model, although the number wasn’t precise and consistent on all cars. The chassis was a shorter version of the one previously used on the 2.5-liter saloon model and on the SS 90 in 1935. The old Standard pushrod 2.5-liter engine was upgraded with overhead valve and a new cylinder head. The first models offered a power output of 100 hp and the engine was linked to a four-speed gearbox with synchromesh on the top 3 ratios.
