A new Jaguar Heritage gallery is to open at Coventry Transport Museum, featuring 17 vehicles from the Jaguar Heritage collection. The gallery, which is set to open in July 2013, will be situated on the first floor of Coventry Transport Museum, and will be based on the theme ‘Jaguar – a History of Design and Technical Innovation’.
The exhibition will cover the period from the Swallow Sidecar Company of 1922 through to the present day, and will also include a look to the future. The 17 vehicles set to go on display have been chosen to illustrate some of the defining moments in Jaguar’s illustrious history and will be complemented by displays of archive images, specially designed historical display panels and digital information pods.
The vehicles will range from a 1928 Swallow Side-car to one of the latest concept cars from Jaguar Design and will include many iconic models from the intervening years including Mark V, Mark Vll, Mark 2 and XJ saloons as well as XK120, XK150, E-type, XJS and XK8 sports cars.
This new exhibition at Coventry Transport Museum will complement a display of sports and racing cars from the Jaguar Heritage Collection, which opened at the Heritage Motor Centre at Gaydon in Summer 2012. More at www.transport-museum.com
