Sir William Lyons: The Official Biography

Author(s): Philip Porter


The first full biography of Jaguar founder Sir William Lyons. This inspiring book describes Lyons's early influences and how, while in his 30s, he established a substantial motor manufacturing business. Decades of glory were followed by a period of despair. But at the time of his death in 1985 he knew that, post British Leyland, the company he founded was on a strong path to recovery. Winner of the Mercedes-Benz Award for the Montagu of Beaulieu Trophy, 2001, for the greatest contribution to recording the history of motoring or motorcycling.

2002. Reprint. A near fine copy only marked by light age tanning to the page edges. The d/w is unclipped and fine. Scans available if required.
