    New Jaguar gallery opens at the Coventry Transport Museum

    14 August 2013

    A new exhibition gallery entirely dedicated to Jaguar cars has opened at the Coventry Transport Museum, the popular (and free!) city centre museum visited by over half a million people a year.

    Celebrating the historic ties of the iconic car manufaturer to the city of Coventry, the new Jaguar Gallery showcases a unique collection of cars covering ten decades of Jaguar and the role of the company in Coventry's history.

    Visitors are taken on a sequential journey through the gallery, with historic artifacts, imagery, films and high tech storyboards further illustrating Jaguar’s rich heritage and the many technology and design innovations behind these great vehicles.

    Titled ‘The Jaguar Story – A History of Design and Technical Innovation’, the new gallery is split into five logical, themed sections: ‘The Early Years’ (1920s-1940s), ‘The Post War Boom and Glamorous 50s’, ‘The Swinging 60s’, ‘Growth and Consolidation’ (1970s-2000s), and ‘Jaguar Present and Future’ (2005 on).

    Made possible by Jaguar and Jaguar Heritage, the new gallery reveals Jaguar’s development and progress through the years – from the evocative SS line of the 1920s to the present day with the stunning new F-TYPE (Jaguar presented the Coventry Transport Museum with the first new F-Type off the production line at the opening of the gallery).

    To mark the official opening of the Jaguar Gallery, a unique line-up of Jaguar heritage sports cars dating from the 1930s to the present day were displayed outside the Museum. Led by the new F-Type, a procession of some of the rarest and most iconic Jaguar sports cars travelled in convoy through the city’s streets, converging on the Museum ahead of the opening.
