The latest issue of The Jaguar magazine introduces our new ‘cub’, the E-PACE compact practical sports car, which is already turning heads on the street. As we commit to electrifying every new Jaguar by 2020, we explore how pushing boundaries on the track helps develop our sports cars, from writing motorsport history at Le Mans, to taking on the Nürburgring with the extreme XE SV Project 8 and being at the very cutting edge with the FIA Formula E Championship.
JAGUAR CLASSIC WORKS WONDERS JAGUAR LAND ROVER CLASSIC NOW BOASTS A NEW PURPOSE-BUILT CLASSIC WORKS FACILITY THAT BRINGS ALL SALES, SERVICING, GENUINE PARTS AND RESTORATION OPERATIONS UNDER ONE ROOF. Fueling the passion of classic Jaguar and Land Rover owners and enthusiasts, the all-new Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works facility is the largest of its type in the world. The 150,000 sq ft site in Coventry boasts a dedicated sales showroom space and 54 workshop bays for servicing and restoring all Jaguar and Land Rover models out of production for a decade or more. Jaguar drivers seeking a restoration service for their own vehicle can call upon the same expert knowledge and skills that produced the Legends Continued and Reborn Legends vehicles. Over 80 specialists are now employed at Classic Works, many with decades of experience working solely on the older models catered for by the new facility, and this number is expected to grow to more than 120 by the end of 2017. As Tim Hannig, Jaguar Land Rover Classic Director, (above right) explains: “Our people, their knowledge and skills are the heart of Jaguar Land Rover Classic. There are more than 1.5 million classic Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles in existence worldwide, and we are investing in traditional manufacturing and restoration skills to ensure enthusiasts are able to give cars with a glorious past, a glorious future.” The workshop area is organized into dedicated strip-down, remanufacturing and assembly zones. Specialists have access to a catalog listing over 30,000 individual and guaranteed genuine parts. Close ties to the core Jaguar Land Rover business also means the Classic operation can take advantage of cutting-edge manufacturing technology, such as 3D scanning and Computer Aided Design, which allows the re-tooling and reintroduction of parts that would otherwise be prohibitively expensive to remanufacture. Those enthusiasts looking to purchase a collectible classic Jaguar can choose from a selection of examples, ranging from restoration candidates to daily drivers and concours show cars, all expertly picked by the Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works Legends team. You can experience the craftsmanship and expertise for yourself, as well as get a behind-the-scenes look at the Jaguar Land Rover Classic Collection of 500 vehicles, thanks to guided Classic Works tours, which are now available on selected days throughout the year.
