Jaguar Land Rover has recently purchased the largest-known privately owned collection of British classic cars in the world. Jaguar is the most represented brand with 130 examples in the vast collection of 543 cars amassed by British enthusiast James Hull. Models in the collection include an SS100, XK120s including a rare alloy-bodied example, C-, D- and early E-Types, an XK SS and a Mk.X owned by Sir William Lyons.

Through its newly-created Special Operations division, a brand new Jaguar Heritage workshop at the historic Browns Lane, Coventry, site will maintain the Jaguars in the collection. This new facility will also offer Jaguar warrantied servicing and restoration of the company’s classic models. The cars in the collection will be actively used to support Jaguar brand events and customer experiences around the world and in developing markets. MM
