Four iconic Jaguars, one retailer.

To celebrate the arrival of the All-New Jaguar XF, Jaguar Houghton-Le-Spring held an exclusive event in conjunction with North East Jaguar Enthusiast's Club. As well as being able to test drive the new Jaguar, guests were able to celebrate the future of Jaguar by getting a unique insight in to their legacy.

Models on display from North East Jaguar Enthusiast's Club in the showroom included the Jaguar XJ-S Convertible, and an extremely rare 1964 Daimler SP250.

There were also four emblematic Jaguar registers; the C -Type, D-Type, E-Type and F-Type. Convened in the centre of the showroom, these four vehicles spanning six decades offered a real insight in to what makes Jaguar's motorsport pedigree so legendary.

Each car is an icon in its own right. The Jaguar C-Type, in theEcurie Ecosse racing colours, won Le Mans twice in 1951 and 1952. Its successor, the D-Type, won Le Mans in three consecutive years from 1955 to 1957. The Jaguar E-Type, drawing inspiration from its predecessors, is a car synonymous with superb styling and a fantastic driving experience.

They were also joined by a modern-day counterpart in the Jaguar F-Type, which is inspired by its early ancestors. No other vehicles represent the prowess of Jaguar so eloquently.The display provided a the perfect setting to guests to view vehicles such as the new XE and XF.

It's no wonder than that guests couldn't wait to explore the features of the new Jaguar range, as extended test drives were held throughout the day in not only the new XF but also the new Jaguar XE and F-Type.

Accompanied by an experienced member of the Jaguar team, guests were able to get the most out of these Jaguar models, and see where Jaguar's experience of building world-beating performance cars has got them today.
