RM Arizona 2016 – 1939 JAGUAR SS100 Roadster by Van den Plas

Long before it was shorthanded to the VDP option package, Van den Plas was making their name with stunning vehicles like this SS100.

Favorite details in this gorgeous, closed-body art deco coachwork?  How about the insanely ballooned fenders, edged in a thick sheath of chrome all around the lower bodyside. Or that fabulous grille and blinding lights.

But the all-time coolest detail?  The almost-nonexistent windshield — presented with no top edge and at an ultra raked angle — for 1939 or today!
