The two-seater Jaguar SS100 was powered by a 2.5-litre straight-six engine. The engine was based on a Standard Motor Company unit. It was greatly improved by consultant engineer Harry Weslake, who converted it from side to overhead valve operation. The engine produced 100 horsepower, which provided sporty performance for the Jaguar SS100’s lightweight body.
