Jag heritage on display five days a week

The Jaguar museum in Coventry has been relaunched after a three-year closure to the general public.

The Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust was founded in 1983 as an independent educational charity but has been restructured and renamed Jaguar Heritage.

It will now be open five days a week and houses a number of iconic cars, including the 1988 Le Mans-winning XJR-9, D-Type, C-Type, the unique XJ13, a famous rally-winning XK120 and a Jaguar F1 car.

“The collection is an important part of Jaguar’s heritage and allows members of the public and Jaguar enthusiasts from around the world to view the famous cars,” said Mike O’Driscoll, managing director of Jaguar Cars.

“The structure of the museum has been redesigned so that visitors will gain a greater understanding of the fantastic racing history of our brand.”
