This car was allocated to the Jaguar Experimental Department and later to the Service Department. It was used for development work, possibly including development of the 3-carburrettor S engine. The original engine was later fitted in FHC RHD S824021.

It was eventually returned to produce (scrapped) in 1962.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
