Europe celebrates 65 years of the Jaguar XK


Jaguar XKs covering the 120, 140 and 150 met in Luxembourg from 7-9 June to celebrate the model’s 65th anniversary.

The event attracted 250 cars, from the multi-award winning '55 XK' (above) to a 150 that had been rebodied as a special.

Stealing the most glances, however, was an XK120 roadster that was ordered new by Belgian banker and aristocrat, Baron Lambert. It had been the subject of a sympathetic, three-year restoration.

A coachbuilt Jaguar XJ6 estate served as a backup tow car.

Meeting at Echternach, near the border with Germany, the cars took part in a road-book rally before touring the forests and valleys of the country’s Petit Suisse region.  

The furthest-travelled participant came from Israel, although the event attracted entries from Denmark, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Luxembourg and the UK.
