ABOUT US

From small beginnings in his workshop in Coventry, England, engineer Neville Swales Neville Swales, Building The Legendhas been quietly creating meticulously engineered cars inspired by Jaguar’s 1966 XJ13 Le Mans Prototype. That car was originally designed to return Jaguar to their glory days at Le Mans and take on the might of Ford and Ferrari. Sadly, Jaguar’s car never turned a wheel in anger.


Neville’s cars take their inspiration from the 1966 Jaguar XJ13 Le Mans Prototype as it first left the Competition Department – as Malcolm Sayer envisaged it - before it was crashed at MIRA and rebuilt in 1972/73. The first completed car was a finalist in the 2016 International Historic Motoring Awards where it stood shoulder-to-shoulder against such icons as the 1966 Le Mans 24 Hours winning Ford GT40 and the 1956 Le Mans winning Ecurie Ecosse Jaguar D-Type. Neville’s first car has since been joined by a limited number of customer cars built to the same exacting standard.
