Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has opened a new classic car building in Coventry that will sell and service the brand’s legendary models.
Classic Works has a showroom space where completed restorations and new-builds will be displayed, as well as 54 workshop bays that will service and restore any Jaguar or Land Rover model that has been out of production for 10 years or more.
It is also home to the Land Rover Classic Collection, which includes more than 500 vehicles and provides an “invaluable reference for restorations”, says JLR. These vehicles will also be lent to car clubs and museums, and will be used for JLR heritage events.
John Edwards, JLR special operations managing director, said: “Classic Works is hugely important to Jaguar Land Rover. It’s much more than a building – it’s the heart and soul of Jaguar Land Rover Classic for our clients worldwide.
“Being able to support owners and enthusiasts of our two great brands with a full suite of services for classic vehicles is a fantastic opportunity.”
JLR also announced its Legends programme, which will be based at the Classic Works facility. The service ranges from offering classic models for sale, as well as ‘reborn’ versions of classic cars such as the Lightweight E-Type race cars built in 2015 to 1960s specification.
Tours will be available from September, costing £49.
