Jaguar has firmly cemented its position as a British style icon, synonymous with exuberance and class. It’s no wonder that the brand is so popular with A-list stars around the world. From royalty to footballers, this blog post looks at a few famous Jaguar owners.
Posh and Becks
Posh and Becks are huge fans of Jaguar, boasting a collection that is said to include an XK, F-Type, E-Type, and an XJ, to name but a few. As British style icons in their own right, the couple have been recruited as brand ambassadors on a number of occasions, supposedly embodying Jaguar’s identity.
The former England Captain was recently unveiled as international face of the brand, appearing in ads for the new Jaguar F-Type in China. Mr Beckham confirmed his love for the British motoring giants, commenting: “I’ve always been an admirer of Jaguar – from the styling and design to the feel and roar of the engine, every element feels uniquely British.”
Famed for his roles in Indiana Jones and Star Wars, Harrison Ford is reportedly also a big fan of Jaguar. Rather than travelling through space in the Millennium Falcon, you’re more likely to see the actor cruising in his 1955 British racing green XK 140, worth an estimated $150,000.
Simon Cowell recently purchased this exquisite 1965 convertible E-Type for a whopping £650,000. The refurbished model reportedly caught the eye of the X-Factor judge after it was featured on BBC One’s Top Gear. The 160mph Eagle Speedster is one of only three models available, and features a brand new aluminium body.
Queen Elizabeth II
The Royal Family has been a longstanding supporter of the Jaguar brand. The Queen can regularly be seen behind the wheel of her British racing green S-Type or Range Rover. Jaguar has well and truly received a Royal seal of approval.
