Museum Beast
Jaguar World, Jaguar XJ40, August 2006
‘Techno Classica, Europe's largest classic car show, has been held for the past 17 years in the German town of Essen that lies close to the border with Holland. At over 300 miles from Calais, it's going to be a test for the museum piece - it's covered just 1700 miles in the 12 years since it left the production line. Well used, it isn't. A risk, this is.’
