A grand parade of Jaguar cars has gone through Coventry to mark the 75th anniversary of the brand.

Seventy-five modern and vintage models travelled through the city centre before going to a heritage motor festival near Chichester.

The Lord Mayor started the drive, which will include a visit to London's Mayfair Hotel, site of the first Jaguar launch in 1935.

The individually-numbered cars from across the years include the E-type.

They will make the 175-mile journey in two days.

Most of the cars are privately-owned and driven by their owners.

They will be joined by some of the most famous cars from Jaguar's own heritage collection and a selection of its latest models.
