Mercedes already announced its intention to participate in this year’s Mille Miglia road rally and today it’s Jaguar’s turn to announce its lineup for the Italian revival rally. The British company will enter the rally with three C-Type models, three XK120s and five new F-Type sports roadsters.
Jaguar has curated a unique team for its Jaguar Heritage Racing entry, including six-time Olympic cycling champion Sir Chris Hoy, Le Mans winner Andy Wallace, Sir Williams Lyons’ grandson Michael Quinn, 20th Century Fox chairman Jim Gianopulos, fashion designer Salvatore Ferragamo Jr, David Gandy and Yasmin Le Bon. All we can say is that this year’s Mille Miglia rally is shaping up to be quite an interesting race.
