The collection, assembled over many years by British enthusiast James Hull, includes 543 mostly British classic cars. It features many significant Jag- uar models, including seven XK 120s (including a rare alloy-bodied example), C- and D-types, an XKSS, eight E-types, 30 classic Jaguar ‘Mark’ model saloons, 19 XJS models, and more than 20 XJ saloons with interesting and famous previous owners. The majority of these cars are in truly outstanding condition, with many hav- ing fascinating histories behind them. The collection also features many other iconic and famous British cars and models. The acquisition is part of an increased commitment by Jaguar Land Rover to protect and nurture the rich heritage possessed by both brands. It follows the recent creation of Spe- cial Operations, which has been estab- lished to develop and oversee heritage and the creation of unique vehicles, such as the recently announced Jaguar Project 7. The Project 7 is a limited edition F-TYPE, which takes its inspiration from the legendary D-type. The Project 7 name refers to the seven outright Le Mans victories scored by Jaguar and is highly appropriate given it’s the 60th anniversary of the creation of the D-type. The Jaguar Heritage business, part of Special Operations, recently announced the build of six perfect recreations of the original, race-bred Lightweight E-type that was created in 1963. The new Lightweights were hand- built by highly skilled Jaguar crafts- men in a new Jaguar Heritage facility at Browns Lane, less than 100 metres from where the original cars were assembled in 1963.
