The SS Jaguar 100 was a two-seat roadster sports car introduced in 1936 and produced until 1940. At the time, the manufacturer’s name was SS, which was changed to Jaguar in 1945 to avoid any association with the Nazis. A 2.7-liter, 100-hp engine, based on the old 2.5-liter pushrod unit, featuring overhead valve and a new cylinder head, powered the car. In 1938, the unit was upgraded for a 3.5-liter engine with a power output of 125 hp. Power was transmitted to the wheels via a four-speed gearbox with synchromesh on the top three ratios. Suspension used half-elliptical springs with rigid axles and the car was equipped with Girling brakes. The model was only 2600 pounds and 0-to-60 mph acceleration was about 10 seconds.
