Jaguar is today the brand that represents sports and luxury cars produced by the British company Jaguar Land Rover, owned by the Tata Motor automotive group which is, in turn, owned by the Indian industrial giant founded by Jamshedji Tata considered by many a pioneer of modern industry and father of Indian industry. Jaguar finds, however, its origins in 1922 when the then promising engineer Sir. William Lyon founded with William Walmsley the Swallow Sidecar Company specialized in the construction of sidecars, the business immediately proved to be in continuous growth and, after Arthur Whittaker also joined the company, production also extended to the automotive field initially building new bodies on the base of Austin Seven. The company changed its name to Swallow Sidecar Company Coachbielder and the talent of Sir. Lyon was not slow to express himself in the construction of bodywork which led to the creation of about 3500 models of the Austin Seven Swallow. The enormous success achieved in the automotive field led to the decision to abandon the motorcycle business in 1930 and after Walmsley's resignation in 1934 Lyons remains the sole head of the newly formed SS Cars Ltd which produced its first luxury car in 1931 the Jaguar SS1. After the stop of production during the Second World War, in 1945 the British company changed its name again in favor of a more popular Jaguar, a brand already used previously for some cars produced in the pre-war period.

Mercedes-Benz is the commercial brand used for cars produced by the German car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz AG born in 2019 and originally founded in 1926 from the merger of the Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft companies of Gottlieb Daimler and the Benz & Cie of Karl Benz, father of the automobile with the Patent Motorwagen. The name Mercedes is instead linked to the daughter of the Austrian importer of Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft, Emil Jellinek who since 1898 used the name Mercedes as an omen for the sales of German cars and also because it was easier and more elegant to remember than Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft; the "Mercedes" used by Jellinek to participate in car races also reported the Mercedes writing on the nose and the numerous victories obtained by the Austrian importer allowed him to acquire considerable popularity and to order about 40 racing cars on condition that they were called, though, Mercedes. Despite the opposition of the Stuttgart top management for participation in the tenders, the order was respected and the Mercedes name is still used today.

Porsche is a German car manufacturer founded in Stuttgart today owned by Volkswagen. Eng. Ferdinand Porsche (1875 - 1951) after having collaborated with Lohner in the creation of hybrid and electric cars also with four-wheel drive, opened, in 1931, his design and engineering studio Dr. Ing. hc F. Porsche GmbH to which he also joined the son, Ferdinand Anton Porsche known as Ferry. During the fascist period, in 1938, Ferdinand Porsche created a project for a popular car on behalf of Adolf Hitler and thus the Volkswagen Typ 1 or Beetle as it is better known in Italy was born. After a wait of about 10 years, in 1948, the first car produced by Porsche was presented, the 356 coupé, convertible and the most famous Speedster for the American market. The Porsche 356 owes much of its mechanics to the VW Typ 1, in fact, in addition to mounting the same engine with a modified fuel system, it also shared the location of the engine with the VW, which was mounted in a longitudinal and cantilevered rear position, i.e. beyond the rear axle. In 1963 Ferdinand Alexander Porsche known as Butzi, son of Ferry, designed the 911 again with a cantilever engine like the 356, a feature that will always be maintained and only in 1998, with the 996 project, was the air cooling replaced by the liquid cooling system . The term Carrera is, however, a tribute to the Carrera Panamericana car race of 1954 when the Porsche 550 Spyder driven by Hans Hermann finished 3rd; as a tribute to the result obtained, the engine developed by Fuhrmann was called Carrera. The most famous 550 Spyder is the one in which Jeam Dean died in the tragic accident of 1955.

Rolls-Royce Ltd. was an English company in the automotive and aeronautical sector active with this company name until 1973, when the English government, then owner of the entire British automotive sector, decided to divide the automotive, thriving and driving activities the entire group, from the aeronautical ones, in crisis due to the development of the RB211 jet engine; thus the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars for the automotive sector were born, while Rolls-Royce Ltd. would continue to produce aeronautical engines. Rolls-Royce Ltd was officially founded on 15 March 1906, but finds its foundations in the agreement reached on 4 May 1904 by the aristocrat Charles Rolls and the engineer Sir. Henry Royce. The meeting organized in Manchester by Enerst Claremont, Royce's partner in Royce Ltd, led to the agreement that Charles S. Rolls would handle the sales of the automobiles designed and built by Henry Royce. An agreement which soon led to the creation of the company which is still today synonymous with quality and reliability, principles on which the British car manufacturer has always been based and which derive from Sir's spasmodic and constant search for perfection. Henry Royce.
