The first S.S. 1 was introduced to the public at the London Olympia Motor Show in 1931 as the S.S.1 Close-Coupled Coupe, and it could justifiably be called the first car that was completely designed by William Lyons. After a revised design in 1933, Lyons came up with a 1934 model range with a much improved radiator design and a new saloon. He also showed this Drop Head Coupe design and an Airline Coupe. With the lower roofline, long bonnet and sporty design they looked much more expensive than they really were, establishing a tradition that Jaguar was to maintain for many years.
