» Saving Jaguar by Sir John Egan
£24.95





This is the full, personal account by Sir John Egan of how he came to a failing Jaguar in 1980, and fought to raise quality and morale - with such success that Jaguar was privatised in 1984 and won Le Mans in 1988.

The story includes boardroom battles, dealing with the UK government, re-entering motor sport with Tom Walkinshaw, and the huge effort entailed in getting XJ40 into production.

Finally, Sir John tells from his own perspective how the Ford take-over happened, resulting in Jaguar being part of a major manufacture again - and his own departure from the scene. A fascinating glimpse into life at Jaguar during the XJ6/XJ-S and XJ40 eras.



The book includes many interesting observations on the people he worked with (and sometimes fought with - one of the most intriguing revelations is that shortly before privatisation, there was a boardroom plot to sack John Egan!), along with the problems making the cars of the period: XJ6, XJ-S, XJ40 etc.

Ultimately, perhaps, Egan created an aura of success that was perhaps over-egged, which enticed Ford into making an offer to buy the company that was too generous not to be put to the shareholders, who gave the proposal a mighty thumbs-up. So Sir John saw Jaguar become a small cog in a major organisation once more - but at least he had preserved Sir William Lyons' inheritance so that there was a worthwhile entity to be bought. An essential read for anyone interested in Jaguar's history and the company's products of the 1980s.

NOTE that our books are generally heavy - several Kg for many. WE DO NOT attempt to make a profit on shipping costs and only charge what is necessary to get the book to you in a speedy (often within 24 hours for the UK) and safe manner (many books have their own custom protective cardboard shipper). If you are in the UK, you can generally make big savings by ordering more than one of our own books at a time. We do not debit cards until good are ready for despatch (unless you pay by PayPal in which case PayPal will debit you immediately - this is outside our control)

Available Options: please ensure you select the correct edition (standard or leather etc) using the Print Format button (if several are available) and the correct Shipping option as mentioned above. If your destination is not shown, please use the Contact Us form for a quote. Note that Print Format and Shipping prices marked + are additional to the basic standard edition cost. Note that many of our larger books to European destinations are now sent insured/signed for at extra cost due to unacceptable levels of non-delivery recently.

FOR PJ PUBLISHING BOOKS to mainland UK destinations ONLY: we will ship two or more (any quantity) of our own books via ParcelForce for a one-off charge of £9.95. To take advantage of this, order your books (not mixed with books from other publishers that we sell) via the lists below and we will ensure you are only charged £9.95 despite what your Invoice shows (PayPal users will get a refund if necessary)
