The original Jaguar SS100 was one of the most important cars every produced in England. This beautiful car was designed in 1935 by William Lyons, the founder of Jaguar Cars Limited.
The Jaguar SS100 marked the high point of English sports car design before the start of World War II. When the leading motoring writers of Europe selected their choice of the 100 most important cars of the 20th century, they included the legendary SS Jaguar 100.
Only three hundred and fourteen SS Jaguar 100s were ever made, however there cannot be a more iconic or widely recognised car. It is one of the quintessential pre-war sports cars, and it launched Jaguar’s name as a sports car manufacturer.
At Suffolk Sportscars we produce a superb visual recreation of the original SS Jaguar 100, with the additional benefits of modern brakes, suspension and steering, to meet the demands of today’s drivers. It is an ideal touring car, easily covering hundreds of miles in great comfort. The Jaguar XJ6, known as one of the most comfortable saloon cars ever built, provides us with the suspension and components, and makes this level of comfort possible in all of our cars.
We have now made over three hundred and twenty five of our Suffolk SS100 reproductions. We hope that our website will illustrate the skills of all our fantastic team here and that you take the opportunity to come and visit us at Woodbridge. We are a family business with 20 years experience of making the Suffolk SS100, with hundreds of delighted customers all over the world.
We build small number of cars every year, all to customer specifications. We can build you this classic sports car, completely bespoke to your mechanical specification, in your choice of body colour and interior trim, with any optional extras. In the Gallery section you can see many of the cars that we have previously built.
If you are inspired then we can also provide you with a Self Build package, where the vehicle comes ready for simple assembly and fitting at home, with a full set of reconditioned and new parts.
Finally, we aim to carry small stock of our pre-owned Suffolk cars, when possible. We pick and choose to resell only the finest examples, and all cars come fully prepared to the best standards, with works guarantees, and ready to drive away. Many of our cars carry historic registration, so that they can also be exported worldwide.
