Land Rover Austin along with Jaguar Land Rover is pleased to announce to our loyal followers that the chosen location for the Special Vehicle Operations Technical Centre will be beautiful Prologis Park in Ryton, UK!
This immaculate facility will be the global center for the creation of the company’s high end luxury and extreme performance vehicles. With operations set to begin towards the end of 2014, a team of 150 Jaguar Land Rover specialists will be based at Ryto which will create new jobs in the area.
The Center will be part of Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Operations that will focus on meeting the increasing expectations of today’s most enthusiastic Jaguar and Land Rover customers. Its unique facilities will feature a VIP customer commissioning suite for bespoke services and premium vehicle personalization, as well as Formula 1-inspired flexible workshops and a specialist paint studio.
Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations, John Edwards, said: “We are excited by the capability and potential that this new facility will give us. We will be creating truly iconic vehicles that reinforce the global reputation of both Jaguar and Land Rover brands as we expand our product portfolio and fulfill our ambitious plans.”
The first vehicle to roll out of the new SVO workshop will be the Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7, the most powerful and fastest production Jaguar to date, and with just 250 models being made available worldwide, this vehicle will be quite a highly sought after commodity. Each F-TYPE Project 7 will start life at the company’s plant in Castle Bromwich, before transferring to the Special Operations Technical Center to complete the build by hand.
Jaguar Land Rover continues to deliver on its strategic growth plans, which will see the company investing in 50 new products over the next five years including the new Jaguar XE premium sedan and Land Rover Discovery Sport, which will go on sale in 2015 and will be noted as the most versatile and capable vehicle in the compact SUV segment.
