STARS JOIN JAGUAR IN 2013 MILLE MIGLIA VIDEO

As part of its F-Type launch program, Jaguar took a number of its heritage cars to the 2013 Mille Miglia "race" and invited a number of stars and celebrities to drive.

Conducted on public roads, the event is no longer a serious race but more of a 1000-mile tour in celebration of what was regarded as 'The World's Most Beautiful Race'.

The short video highlights the three Jaguar XK120 cars as well as the driver pairings that included Daniel Day Lewis and Jim Gianopulos, David Gandy partnering Yasmin Le Bon plus Sir Chris Hoy and Andy Wallace.

The cavalcade of Jaguar Heritage Racing cars also comprised three C-Type sports cars, driven by people like Chris Harris, Salvatore Ferragamo Jr and Michael Quinn - the grandson of Jaguar founder Sir William Lyons.

The Jaguars joined more than 400 classic race and road cars in the Mille Miglia - a record number of entries and were accompanied by five new Jaguar F-Types that followed them throughout the Italian countryside.
