Lynx Reviews

With its workshops in St Leonards-on-Sea, Sussex, and a showroom in the Lexham Mews, Kensington, Lynx Engineering catered for the requirements of Jaguar-lovers who wanted something a bit special. Founded in 1968 by Guy Black (former Chief Production Engineer of Weslake Engineering) to cater for the needs of owners of pre- and post-war sports racing cars, the company earned a great deal of respect and admiration for its formidable Jaguar D-type replica launched in 1974 – no mere 'conversion', that – Lynx went on to produce an equally-revered C-type replica, drop-top conversions of both the XJ6 Coupe and the XJS, and the car for which they are probably best known – the sublime Lynx Eventer. Guy Black sold his business to Elgan Howell in 1989, and it subsequently went into liquidation in 1992.

Good: Grace, pace and more space, large boot, elegant styling, perhaps the best shooting brake Jaguar never made
Bad: Rare, and if it's not been looked after can rust in the oddest of places
