    Seen at 00:11 is a well-known competition Jaguar XK120, Reg. No. NUB 120. It has now been preserved, and is owned by the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust.

    "Pan back view Hazel-Car" - this is the B.M.A. Hazelcar, named after its designers Eric and Ruth Hazeldine. It was one of just 4 examples ever made.
