Default Interesting article on the development of Jaguar’s V8 engine

I enjoyed reading this article by Ralph Hosier. He was involved in the development of Jaguar’s V8. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Great link - thanks for that.
Incidentally I recognise that first Black & white picture of the engine block - I think it's taken from another XJS book I have.
