Jaguar Celebrating 60 Years of the XK

Submitted by on Thursday, 24 July 2008No Comment


In 1948, Jaguar created what would become one of the most famous badges in the world, as the all-new and highly advanced XK engine made its debut in the revered XK120 sports car. To mark this milestone the Jaguar XK Club in conjunction with the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club have arranged a series of fantastic events that will culminate in the XK60 Diamond Celebrations taking place over the weekend of 8-10 August 2008. The scale of the event means activities, which include an auction, competitions, trophies, historic exhibitions, star guests, track action and demonstrations, will encompass two spectacular locations: Goodwood – the spiritual home of historic motor sport and nearby Cowdray Park.

Motor racing legend, Sir Stirling Moss, and Formula 1 commentator, Murray Walker, will both attend the celebrations. The event is expected to attract perhaps the finest array of Jaguar sports racing cars, such as C-types and D-types, XK120s, 140s and 150s ever gathered and seen in action – over 600 to celebrate 60 years of the car’s heritage. The feature-packed XK60 event will include a major sale of Jaguars and related automobilia by leading auction house, Bonhams.

The 60th anniversary of the XK is a milestone well worth celebrating, and the XK60 Diamond celebrations will be a phenomenal series of events that Jaguar is proud to support.
