Jaguar & Me: Sir Ian Botham on Jags

Published: 20 May 2010

Sir Ian Botham drives a Jag XKR and we caught up with him for his views on Jaguars.

‘I love Jaguar because it’s British,’ says Sir Ian, English cricket’s most prolific wicket taker and the owner of a new XKR. ‘I fly the British flag from the highest possible point.

'The Academy of Sport scheme is all about wanting the best for British sport, and an icon from the Midlands is making it happen.

'And there’s a real difference with today’s Jaguars compared with three or four years ago. They’re getting rid of the old man image.’
