A British Icon
Founded in 1922, Jaguar are now one of the most iconic vehicle manufacturers in the world. Synonymous with power, luxury and style, Jaguar have produced plenty of legendary cars that leave a lasting impression.
From the beauty and grace of the classic E-type, to race cars for the road such as the XJ220, each Jaguar has its own distinct character that many adore. Car clubs are a fantastic way to share this adoration and passion with other like-minded enthusiasts while also showing off your pride and joy.
If you have a Jaguar, or are hoping to get one in the future, this blog will help you discover what 'club doors' these vehicles can unlock by taking a look at some of the most reputable UK Jaguar Car Clubs.
Jaguar Enthusiasts' Club
First set up in December 1984, the Jaguar Enthusiasts' Club is aimed at owners of SS, Jaguar or Daimler vehicles.
By becoming a member, you will be treated to a monthly magazine as well as the exclusive chance to visit vehicle seminars. You will also gain access to various discounts and promotional offers on merchandise, event fees and specialist insurance packages.
The club's office is located in Bristol, but they operate within numerous regions across the UK, as well as internationally. Pricing information can be found on their website, but it is more than reasonable considering the range of benefits available.
Jaguar Drivers' Club
Established in 1956, the Jaguar Drivers' Club (JDC) has since become widely known in the Jaguar community and is one of the most respected owners clubs out there. Being a part of the JDC means you are part of an international community of Jaguar and Daimler lovers.
They were officially recognised by the traditional founder of the Jaguar brand; 'Mr Jaguar' himself, Sir William Lyons. The JDC also have their own magazine, and offer free vehicle advice to those who are members, as well as many more great club features such as discounted insurance and breakdown cover.
Exclusive events for members are often held, providing you with the chance to get up close and personal with rare Jaguar models. You do not have to own a Jaguar either as the JDC will welcome you with open arms as long as you have a passion for the British brand.
The International XK Club
The International XK club is another prestigious membership for Jaguar owners, with the key difference being that it was set up specifically for owners of XK Jaguars. Founded in 1994 by Julie and Philip Porter, the club is dedicated to, and revolves around, classic XK120s, 140s and 150s.
They too have a monthly magazine that goes out to their members, including a digital version. Like other clubs, members also get discounts from certain insurers as well as parts and service specialists. A library of technical articles can also be browsed and read, helping you get to grips with the details of your Jaguar.
The club's members span far and wide across more than 50 countries, with an array of events hosted all year round within various nations. Membership fees are reasonable considering the amount of benefits you receive.
Jaguar Owners Club
Largely an online forum, the Jaguar Owners Club is still a great way to for those lucky enough to own a Jaguar to (digitally) get involved in the Jaguar conversation, as well as 'meet' other owners.
When you sign up, you get access to a highly useful online forum where you can discuss the latest news and your Jaguar interests with like-minded people.
There are both free and paid membership packages of the Jaguar Owners Club. The free version gives you access to all of the useful information that you can find in the forum, whilst the reasonably priced, paid version gives you discounts towards high street stores and hotel stays, plus unrestricted access to the buy and sell section of the forum.
Become a member of the Stratstone Club
Car clubs are a fantastic way to interact with members of the automotive industry while also gaining exclusive discounts and access to events. Even if you are unfamiliar with vehicles, car club members are often more than happy to help you expand your knowledge.
If you have recently purchased a car through Stratstone, you automatically become a member of the Stratstone Club which provides a range of benefits for you to take advantage of. Our blog section also has various articles related to motoring, helping you to enjoy your time behind the wheel to its fullest.
