Britain’s latest car factory has officially opened and it’s all thanks to Jaguar Land River.
This brand new $12 million plant is home to legendary cars from the marque’s long history.
Housing its own collection of “Classic Works”, the site in Coventry also sells veteran vehicles and offers restoration using traditional skills.
To build and rebuild heritage vehicles will bring back to life an amazing run of limited legendary post-war Jaguars such as the XKSS, and E-type.
All new cars will be built to their original specification, and retail for more than $1.5 million each.
As well as traditional skills, the plant will use the latest cutting-edge technology such as 3D scanning and computer-aided design.
This will allow the re-tooling and reintroduction of parts such as Jaguar E-type and Range Rover Classic panels.
The facility opened on Wednesday June 14 by JLR chief executive, Ralf Speth and boss of the company’s special operation division, John Edwards.
“Classic Works is hugely important to JLR,” said Mr Edwards. “It’s much more than a building – it’s the heart, and soul, of Jaguar Land Rover Classic for our clients worldwide.”
So many car enthusiasts across the world will finally get what they have been waiting for and that’s to see the new sports car that Mr Dewis was ordered to drop everything for.
