Apollo Vredestein Partners with Jaguar E-Type Supplier

Posted on June 27, 2019

Vredestein high performance tires will be fitted on Jaguar E-Type vehicles sold by Eagle E-Types, a company that sells original and restored E-Type models.

The partnership between Apollo Vredestein BV ’s United Kingdom operation and Eagle E-Types continues Vredestein’s rich heritage in the classic car world.

"Vredestein has a history of associating its name with prestigious automotive pursuits," says Karl Naylor, Vredestein UK country manager. "“As a brand, we have partnered with the Mille Miglia event for the last three years, and our classic automotive credentials are second to none.

All Jaguar E-Type models sold by Eagle E-Types will sport Vredestein high performance tires.

"Having our high performance tire range on the bespoke Eagle E-Types is a fitting tribute to both companies’ philosophy to offer an outstanding combination of technology and aesthetics."

"Our attention for detail has brought us to conclude that Vredestein tires are the most appropriate for our creations," adds Henry Pearman, Eagle E-Types CEO.

Late last year, Apollo Vredestein announced two other partnerships with vehicle manufacturers.

* Ford Motor Co. chose the Vredestein Quatrac 5 as a standard fitment on the next generation Ford Fiesta in Europe. It was the second original equipment contract awarded to Apollo Vredestein BV by Ford; the European tire manufacturer also supplies its Vredestein Sportrac 5 on the Ford EcoSport.

* Two 18-inch Vredestein premium tires were selected as original equipment for Volkswagen AG's new Volkswagen Touareg in Europe: the Quatrac 5 and the Ultrac Satin.

Apollo Vredestein is part of Apollo Tyres Ltd.
