An incredible fleet of Jaguar sports and race cars worth in excess of £40m were responsible for extraordinary scenes on the streets of Coventry last weekend, with heritage racers led by the 1988 Le Mans 24 Hour-winning Jaguar XJR-9LM opening the show at MotoFest 2015. The exciting procession of Jaguar cars driven on the Coventry Ring Road were joined by a unique new Jaguar sports car, as the Jaguar F-TYPE R BLOODHOOUND RRV made its world dynamic debut in Jaguar’s home city.
This year’s event saw the Coventry ring road closed to public use in order to host a number of live motorsport activities and Jaguar took advantage of the occasion to show of a cavalcade of some of the most iconic race and road cars from its 80 year history.
The Jaguar F-TYPE R BLOODHOUND RRV was created by Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations and was driven at Coventry MotoFest by BLOODHOUND’s Chief Engineer Mark Chapman. Jaguar is a Technical Partner of the BLOODHOUND Project and is supplying engines, engineering expertise and support vehicles for the world land speed record attempt.
