Santa Barbara, CA May 2014 – The Peterson Automotive Museum has taken a new spin on their typical exhibit and has joined forces with Jaguar North America to make this exhibit possible. The museum polled twelve celebrity automobile enthusiasts for their favorite sports coupe that they would like to add to their own personal collection. Scouring the collector community, the museum was able to locate the finest specimens and has brought them together in the “The World’s Greatest Sports Coupes” exhibit.
Jaguar design director, Ian Callum, was included in the polling and included his favorite coupe as well as provided insight into the vehicles chosen by the automobile enthusiasts. Some may ask why only sports coupes where chosen for the exhibit and Callum provides great design insight. “The sports coupe is the ultimate expression of automotive design and performance,” he says. “When you put a roof on a car, it tightens up the shape and completes the car.”
Each car speaks to each enthusiast in a different way, so part of the intrigue of the exhibit is finding out what spoke to the chosen celebrity about the coupe. Each vehicle includes a placard that shares insight as to what spoke to the celebrity. Visitors can expect to see coupes chosen by actor Patrick Dempsey, AC/DC musician Brian Johnson, comedian Adam Carolla, and Indianapolis 500 Winner and Team Owner Bobby Rahal.
Jaguar Santa Barbara is excited for such a perfect way for visitors to view the new Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe among other amazing coupes. The F-TYPE R Coupe is very relevant amid this group of legendary sports coupes and can be seen through October 18th in Los Angeles at the Petersen Automotive Museum.
