A Celebration of Jaguar Cars

From 26th September to 14th October 2018 Haynes International Motor Museum will be celebrating one of the greatest and iconic British marques of all time – Jaguar.  

As well as creating a new, temporary display of Jaguar cars, the Museum’s Curator, Matt Piper, will be running daily talks at 11:15 (26th Sept – 29th Sept) looking at Jaguar’s impressive history and celebrating its many highs, as well as remembering some of its lows. The Curator’s talks will be complemented with volunteer led talks at 14:15 (26th Sept – 29th Sept).

This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about this most British of marques and get up close and personal to the Museum’s collection of Jaguars.

Café 750 will be joining the celebrations with a special British themed menu running throughout the event.

Grace, Space and Pace were three words associated with Jaguar in the manufacturer’s heyday but are arguably just as applicable to the marque today.  The words Value for money were also closely linked with this brand and that ethos was very close to the heart of Jaguar’s founder, Sir William Lyons.

Lyons produced the first Jaguar in the 1930s and remained at the company’s helm until his retirement in 1967.  During this time he and his stellar team gave the motoring world the      E Type, XK and V12 engines, XK120, XJ6 and several wins at Le Mans.”
