RD6 comes to Terenure

Following on from the success of previous years, and in association with Jaguar Heritage and Spirit motors we will have the only RD6 concept car, on our stand at the Terenure Classic cars show this year.

The first diesel car designed by Jaguar and also the first Jaguar concept car designed by Ian Callum.

As per previous years the car will be displayed in Spirit Motors on the Saturday prior to the show. I’ve included a few photos to tempt to you to come visit and see this once off car exclusively on The Jaguar Enthusiasts Club stand at Terenure.

Sunday the 28th of January at the Garryvoe Hotel for 12.30. This will be followed by our AGM, combining both events in the one day. Michael Mullins will notify all members early in the new. Hopefully we will have better luck weather wise. Looking forward to seeing you all.

Happy Christmas to everyone and a safe new year.

The Jaguar XJ

It is seen as a leap to far and too technically advanced for some. The jury was still out with me on this but I must admit it’s hard not to like The 5lt Autobiography model shown here.
