1. 1958 Special in Roadracers

The first time a Jaguar vehicle ever skirted across the big screen was in the 1959 cult classic, Roadracers. Here, the Jaguar 1958 Special makes a big impression for its sporting prowess and sets a precedent for years to come.

2. 1961 E-TYPE in The Italian Job

Michael Caine put together one of his best performances in 1969’s The Italian Job. In this film, the Jaguar E-TYPE sporty and slick showed off its curves.

3. 1971 XK-E Hearse in Harold and Maude

Making an appearance in a second cult classic on our list here at Hornburg Jaguar Los Angeles, the 1971 XK-E Hearse brought an appropriately morbid yet sophisticated touch to the friendship between an unexpected pair in 1971’s Harold and Maude.

4. 1994 XJ220 in Gone in 60 Seconds

Ushering in a whole new era of sports cars, Gone in 60 Seconds (2000) features a variety of exotic supercars. It comes as no surprise, then, that the British manufacturer Jaguar made a major appearance in this one. Check out the sleek, low-topped 1994 XJ220 hardtop in Gone in 60 Seconds, featuring Nicholas Cage.

5. 2002 XKR in Die Another Day

Of course we couldn’t leave out a British spy car chase from the list. With Pierce Brosnan playing James Bond, a green Jaguar 2002 XKR convertible made an unforgettable appearance in Die Another Day (2002).

6. 2001 XK8 in Goldmember

In 2002, Austin Powers revved onto the scene behind the wheel of a rendition of the 2001 Jaguar XK8 convertible in Goldmember (2002). This was the second time Mike Myers’ comic persona drove a Jaguar on the big screen. In 1997’s Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, he drove around in 1961 E-TYPE.
