Avalon
This is my favorite Jag ever produced, so I think it should be in the Frozen section. It is amazingly beautiful, fast, and handles very well. I mean just look at it! I saw one at VIR at the Gold Cup races back in June, and the sound and looks of it nearly made me wet my pants, and I'm not joking. I love this thing. Here are the few specs I could gather:

Weight: 2240 lbs
Layout: Front Engine/Rear drive
Transmission: 4 speed manual
Engine Type: Straight 6
Displacement: 3442cc
Horsepower: 200bhp
Torque: 220 lb-ft
0-60mph: 8.1 sec
Top Speed: 144 mph

D is amazing, but I think the C is prettier.

You have to admit 144mph and 0-60 in 8.1 is pretty darn impressive for the late '40s- early '50s.
