Jaguar F-TYPE makes its UK dynamic debut with Jessica Ennis in London Lord Mayor's Show
12th November 2012
The all-new F-TYPE, driven by Jaguar Academy of Sports Ambassador Jessica Ennis, made its UK dynamic debut in front of a crowd of 500,000 people at this year's Lord Mayor's Show in London.
With a stunning display of old and new, the F-TYPE made its way along the procession accompanied by two E-Types and got a great reception as it passed by the grandstands.
Jess commented, "It was great being part of the Lord Mayors Show today in the Jaguar F-TYPE. I was amazed how many people turned out to watch the procession.".
Bringing up the rear were two of the most famous E-Types ever built, Chassis No. 4 and No. 24, which were restored by Classic Motor Cars of Bridgnorth and showed the strong historic links existing between the two models.
In 2011 Jaguar Cars marked the end of the 50th anniversary year of its iconic E-Type in the Lord Mayor's Show with a display of everything that Jaguar is. This year Jaguar celebrated the launching of the all-new F-TYPE with the car making its first public appearance in the UK after being unveiled at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.
