Some of Jaguar’s finest sports and racing cars will be on display at the Heritage Motor Centre from 21 July.

The impressive collection includes a 1938 SS100, a 1951 XK120 that set a number of speed and distance records by being driven continuously for seven days and seven nights at Montlhéry, a 1954 D-type and a 1988 XJR-9 Le Mans car.

The monstrous Group 44 E-type (above) will also be on display, along with a Coombs Mk2.

Fans of modern machinery, meanwhile, are catered for with an XJ220 concept car and a Formula 1 Jaguar from the 2000 season.

Tim Bryan, head of collections & interpretation at Gaydon said: “We are delighted to be working with our colleagues at Jaguar Heritage and showcasing this amazing collection of vehicles for visitors to enjoy and admire.”
