We have been bringing you various news about Goodwood Festival of Speed and the expected launches by various manufacturers. From Range Rover Sport Stealth to McLaren’s track focused model to Civic Type R and NSX Concept, a slew of vehicles are scheduled for launch and display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Now, Jaguar is also folding up its sleeves to prepare for Goodwood Festival of Speed as it plans to unveil a new car at the event. Jaguar says that visitors would witness first new product from Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations – the new division of Jaguar Land Rover responsible for a range of product and service programmes for Jaguar and Land Rover customers.
Jaguar will display an extensive selection of its past, present and near-future models at the event, including the likes of the racing D-type, XJS TWR and XJR-9.
On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of its D-Type, Jaguar will demonstrate the original 1954 D-type prototype as will the later 1956 ‘Long Nose’ model, to be driven by ex-Grand Prix racer Bruno Senna. Other Jaguar Heritage competition racers in action at Goodwood will include the iconic ‘Group 44’ E-type, the Group-A XJS TWR and the 1988 Le Mans-winning XJR-9 LM.
Apart from the competition cars, examples of Jaguar’s new production F-TYPE R Coupé and XFR-S Sportbrake will be publicly seen in action at the Festival, with both set for high speed drives up the famous Goodwood Hill.
