As we are located right in the centre of the British automotive industry I often see Jaguar and Land Rover prototypes driving from one of their sites to another.
I've seen the new F-Type on-the-road a few times now... and it is a stunner.
What really impressed me was the sound. (I recall TVR once tried to patent their sound but were unsuccessful... pity because if Jaguar could patent the sound of the F-Type they should as I guarantee the sound alone is going to turn heads).
Talking about turning heads.... one of our delivery drivers nearly rammed an F-Type in Leamington Spa the other day... too busy admiring it and almost forgetting to brake... would have looked good... our Justjags delivery van stuck on the back of a brand new F-Type.
FYI we are around 5 miles from Gaydon (JLR high tec design and engineering and co-located with Aston Martin).
Around 8 miles from Coventry (Whitley, future models design and R&D).
Around 15 miles from Castle Bromwich (assembly of XJ. XK and XF models)
Around 12 miles from Solihull (assembly of Defender, Discovery and Range Rover models)
And of course with a plethora of support companies in the area, including design, test, engineering and manufacturing... it really is the place to be if you are supplying customers with genuine and quality aftermarket parts for all JLR models.
