Jaguar part of ‘Best of British Engineering’ showcase

Taking place on HMS Queen Elizabeth, which is currently stationed in the United States, Jaguar displayed an F-35B liveried F-Type on the ship’s flight deck.

Jaguar has taken part in a display of the ‘Best of British Engineering’, with an F-Type sports car displayed alongside HMS Queen Elizabeth and an F-35B fighter jet.

Wrapped in the livery of the recently introduced plane, the F-Type was displayed on the flight deck of the Royal Navy’s latest aircraft carrier.

The car has been hidden on-board the £6.2bn ship on its voyage from the UK to the United States, where it is currently taking part in the ‘Westlant 18’ exercise – which is seeing HMS Queen Elizabeth test and receive its squadron of F-35B jets.

Jaguar Land Rover and HMS Queen Elizabeth have had ties since the ship has been in production, as the vehicles from the British manufacturer have been used in a support role for events – while equipment, such as the captain’s chair, was provided by JLR.

Captain Jerry Kyd of HMS Queen Elizabeth, said: “The Jaguar F-Type alongside the F-35B symbolises the very best of British design and engineering.

“Bringing the two together in HMS Queen Elizabeth, itself a triumph of collaboration between UK industry partners and the Ministry of Defence, is representative of the strong ties we as a ship have developed with Jaguar Land Rover.

“The technology involved in the aircraft carrier, F-Type and the F-35B are all linked: a high-quality demanding specification, precision engineering, power and performance. All three represent cutting-edge technology that underlines the very best of British innovation and design.”
