Jaguar announces restoration service and support for its classic cars -

Similar classic vehicle services are provided by luxury brands Porsche, Ferrari, BMW and Aston Martin, and on August 1, Jaguar adds itself to the list of manufacturers catering to owners of other-than-new vehicles.

The announcement came buried in a press release discussing Jaguar Land Rover’s newly formed Special Operations Group, which is best broken into two segments for clarity. For those interested in new (or future) vehicles, the Special Operations Group will create both limited production and entirely bespoke models for clients and will operate out of a dedicated Technical Center to be constructed near Jaguar’s current headquarters. For customers with vintage Jaguars, the Heritage Vehicle Workshop will be based out of Browns Lane in Coventry, the site of Jaguar’s headquarters from 1951 through 2005. Though much of the Browns Lane facility (including the former assembly line buildings and the Jaguar Heritage Museum) has since been razed, the location is still described by Jaguar as “its spiritual home.”
