Jaguar Land Rover Classic: guarantee for the future of its own heritage

Jaguar Land Rover Classic is the new name of Jaguar Land Rover Heritage. The special division of Jaguar Land Rover supplies and maintains classic cars and offers special services, parts and events for customers. The first of nine new Jaguars XKSS will be delivered at the start of 2017. At the Techno-Classica in Essen (6 to 10 April 2016) Jaguar Land Rover Classic launches the Reborn program for the Land Rover Series 1.

Tim Hannig, director of Jaguar Land Rover Classic: 'The new name Jaguar Land Rover Classic reflects our expertise even better. We look forward to an even more successful future by honoring the past of Jaguar and Land Rover and giving it a future. " Jaguar Classic remains active in the historic Jaguar plant on Browns Lane in Coventry, where six new Lightweight E-types have already been built. A completely new workshop has been set up for Land Rover Classic in the former Defender factory in Solihull.

Not just restorations
Jaguar Land Rover Classic not only offers complete restorations, but also maintenance and repair services for customers' cars. The division has also started selling factory-restored classics. Parts that have not been made for decades can be delivered in the short term. The 30.000 high-quality parts from the catalog are available through the Jaguar Land Rover global network.

Nine new Jaguars XKSS
Jaguar Classic builds nine new copies of the Jaguar XKSS, the first of which is expected to be ready at the beginning of 2017. The cars are built by hand, entirely according to the specifications of 1957 and certified by Jaguar. The planned production of 25 Jaguars XKSS could not be completed in 1957 due to a major fire at the Jaguar plant: Jaguar only built 16 of them. The nine new ones - which will cost more than a million pounds - are intended for selected Jaguar customers and collectors. The original Jaguar XKSS was a public road version of the D-type racing car with which Jaguar won the 1955 hour race of Le Mans in 1956, 1957 and 24. Jaguar boss Sir William Lions decided to convert the remaining 25 racing cars into street cars. They were fitted with a higher windscreen and a passenger door. The separation in the interior and the fin on the back of the car were removed.
