The largest car in the SS range first appeared in 1937, the 3.5 Litre. The 3.5 Litre used a 3485cc over-head valve six cylinder engine which made the car capable of 95mph, a good performance for a pre-war saloon. In many ways the car looked reminiscent to the then current "Derby" Bentley range and offered similar performance and interior appointments.

Following WW2 "SS Cars" became better known as Jaguar Cars. Badged as a Jaguar the 3.5 Litre continued in production until its replacement, the Jaguar Mk V, arrived in 1948.
