Gallery: Classic Jaguars wow the crowds at Coventry Motorfest

An incredible fleet of Jaguar sports and race cars worth in more than £40m were on show in Coventry at the weekend.

Heritage racers led by the 1988 Le Mans 24 Hour-winning Jaguar XJR-9LM opened this year’s annual MotoFest event, which took place 29-31 May.
