Jaguar will have a major presence at the sell-out 2014 Goodwood Revival which kicks off this week, with the Lightweight E-type making its European debut and the new F-TYPE Project 7 also being showcased.

The 60th anniversary of the legendary Jaguar D-type will be marked in style at this year’s Goodwood show. To mark the occasion, the Lavant Cup race will be dedicated to the D-type with more than 20 examples of this legendary competition Jaguar competing.

Ex-Jaguar Le Mans winner Andy Wallace will participate in a 1955 ‘long-nose’ D-type alongside other familiar faces, including fellow ex-Le Mans winner Derek Bell.

On Revival Friday and Sunday, a spirited parade of D-types will take place around the Goodwood circuit, with a record number of examples of the racing Jaguar gathered in one place.

Following its recent unveiling at Pebble Beach in California, where it wowed spectators, the Lightweight E-type continuation model will make its much-anticipated European debut, while the new F-TYPE Project 7 by Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations will also be on display along with the stunning Jaguar F-TYPE R Coupé.

In addition, another 25 or so Jaguars and Jaguar-powered cars will be competing wheel-to-wheel at the unspoiled Goodwood motor circuit, with racing C-types and E-types, plus Mark I and Mark VII saloons out in force.
