The attraction played host to a meet by the Jaguar Drivers’ Club X-Type Register. 

Club members from across the UK and Europe attended on the day, showing off a range of cars including two rare Jaguar XJ220s.

Three fully liveried Jaguar Police pursuit vehicles, complete with blues and twos, escorted the vehicles into the museum to kick off the event on Saturday morning. 

Then Jaguar fans and visitors to the museum were invited to get up close to the collection of British designed cars, with models ranging from the X-Type, E-Type, XKR supercharged to the new F-Type sports. 

Among the highlights for visitors were two Jaguar XJ220 supercars capable of travelling at speeds in excess of 200mph – some of the fastest production cars ever built.

All cars are privately owned by Jaguar Drivers’ Club members who attend events around the country to share their passion for cars with other owners.

The Jaguar Driver’s Club was formed in 1956 and organisers chose the museum to host their first meet of the year. 

The display of cars was set against a backdrop of the landmark National Cold War Exhibition building where interested members of the public are encouraged to come and take a look.

Event organiser Steve Bonnell, from the Jaguar Drivers’ Club, said: “The RAF Museum Cosford was a natural choice for the Jaguar Drivers’ Club as it offers a great family day out for our members and it’s centrally located in the UK. 

“It’s a wonderful place that showcases and preserves Britain’s finest achievements and provides first class facilities for car clubs.”

General admission to the RAF museum is free of charge. For details visit www.rafmuseum.org.uk/cosford.
