Limited edition illustration of Briggs Cunningham Jaguar Lightweight roadster as raced at LeMans circa 1963.
I’ve always admired the Jaguar Lightweights—both the roadster and coupe versions—but have a particular fascination with Briggs Cunningham’s efforts at the 1963 24-Hours of Le Mans. There’s just something fundamentally beastly about those three cars. While they didn’t meet with much success on the track they helped Jaguar develop their E-type into one of the most successful sports cars of all time. So much so that Jaguar brought back the lightweights in 2014 as continuation cars (only 12 originals were ever built and only 8 are known to have survived).
Limited Edition Prints—A total of only 25 of these signed an numbered illustrations will be printed at 3000DPI on acid-free, archival quality, giclee paper. When the 25 prints are gone, they’re gone and will not be reprinted. The Cunningham Jaguar Lightweight illustration is available in two sizes—12″ x 24″ and 18″ x 36″.

Bob Tullius and his Group 44 co-drivers really tore up SCCA racing with their meticulously prepared cars. The TR3, TR4, and Spitfire were all incredibly successful race cars but nothing stands still in competition and, though among the winningest cars in SCCA history, time came to put the TR4 out to pasture, replaced with the TR4A […]
Only three works rally cars were built in Abingdon for the 1964 racing season. The factory-built competition cars featured three-Weber carburetters (rather than the standard dual S.U.s) and competition side exhaust that helped improve the notoriously low ground clearance of the big 3000. Vented front wings were fitted to help improve brake cooling and a hardtop was […]
The TR8 was and possibly still is the ultimate expression of the Wedge. Plagued less by inconsistent manufacturing during its production and quality control issues that nearly condemned the TR7 from the outset, the TR8 earned a reputation as a solid performer although only about 2800 cars were ever built with the vast majority *about 2500) […]
