Jaguar fleet at Sky Blues clash with Watford
A FLEET of contemporary Jaguar cars will be on display along with their historical counterparts at a fascinating exhibition ahead of Coventry City’s game against Watford on Saturday.
The mix of new and old Jaguar vehicles will be available for Sky Blues and Hornets supporters to see from 11am at the Ricoh Arena.
Jaguar XK, XF and XJ models will be taking their place in the Jaguar Exhibition Hall alongside around 40 Jaguar E-types and other older vehicles including a Daimler, XJS Fastback and C-Type replica.
Tony O'Keeffe, curator of vehicles at Jaguar Heritage, said this exhibition was a wonderful way to mark the 50th anniversary of Jaguar E-types.
He said: “This will be a proud day for Jaguar and its employees. The Jaguar E-type is synonymous with Coventry since this iconic car was designed and built here, and it is still recognisable throughout the world.
As well as having a wide range of different models of E-types, we will be showcasing sports and saloon cars from this era to appeal to a wide range of motoring enthusiasts.
“We have Jaguar owners travelling from America and Europe to be part of this special event.
“I am sure it will be a fantastic sight to see row after row of Jaguar cars and everyone involved is really looking forward to the day.”
There will also be the Jaguar Education Zone and the chance to win a Jaguar track day experience.
Coventry City’s Championship clash against Watford is also the club’s Legends Day, which is organised by the Former Players’ Association, and around 50 former City players will be introduced to the crowd at half-time.
Supporters can gain entrance to the exhibition in the Jaguar Exhibition Hall for free on production of their match ticket.
