the XJ13 with a V12 engine. this is an exceptionally lovely view of the car. now that is an amazing piece of aerodynamic art designed by malcolm sayer (1916-1970). the original 1960’s prototype of the XJ13 is worth an estimated £14 million (about $27 million or €18 million)

sayer was the designer of jaguar cars and one of the first engineers to apply principles of aerodynamics to car design. his designs included the now famous jaguar C-type (also called XK120-C, due to its being based on the jaguar XK120) Jaguar D-type jaguar e-type jaguar XJS (although the car launched several years after sayer’s death). by dd
