Jaguar Type C at the mille miglia 2013
The Coventry-based automaker continues to grow in strength, both on the world markets and in its communications. To further promote the new F-Type roadster, Jaguar is announcing that it will be present at the legendary Italian race with 6 vintage cars (3 C-Type and 3 XK120), driven by a number of "celebrities" and people from the automotive world.
The Jaguar Heritage Racing crews include :
Chris Hoy / David Gandy / Andy Wallace / Jim Gianopulos / Hannah Herzsprung / Salvatore Ferragamo Jr. / Yasmin Le Bon / Michael Quinn (great-grandson of Jaguar founder Sir William Lyons)
Notable among them is Andy Wallace (former 24 Hours of Le Mans winner), and they will be coached by driver Alex Buncombe and the excellent Chris Harris. Jaguar is taking advantage of the 2013 race to make a comeback to 1952, when Norman Dewis and Sir Stirling Moss raced for the British manufacturer. For 2013, the C-Type and XK120 will be accompanied by a fleet of 5 F-Types (+ support vehicles) to promote the new Jag' model.
To announce the event, here are two official videos:
