Jaguar Land Rover has just previewed the upcoming technical centre for the company’s new Special Vehicle Operations division. The new facility will be built in Ryton, England.
The advanced technical centre will produce the exclusive Jaguar F-Type Project 7 and is set to incorporate a suite where customers can personalise their vehicles along with flexible workshops inspired by Formula 1 and a complete paint studio. The creation of the new facility will see 100 new highly-skilled jobs added with 20 million pounds alone being invested into the customer commissioning suite and installing specialist equipment throughout.
Discussing the facility, 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 fulfil our ambitious plans.”
The first vehicle to be produced at the facility will be the F-Type Project 7. Each of the 250 examples will start life at the company’s existing plant in Castle Bromwich before being transferred to this new one where the build will be completed by hand.
Further down the road, additional models like the Range Rover Sport SVR will be made here.
