#1 Alain de Cadenet RIP

Alain de Cadenet was a very interesting Jaguar Enthusiast so I thought it worth mentioning on the forum that he passed away recently.

This is one of his best films about the more interesting Jaguar cars, worth watching again even if you have seen it before. RIP Alain.

A true car hero. He maxed out a McLaren F1 on the M11 at 5:30 on a Summer's morning and was smart enough to not video it unlike the YouTube obsessed youth of today.

Very interesting and lovely film, I love the way he gently closes the doors and bonnets of these mytic cars...But nobody is perfect obviously.
