Jaguar Land Rover Classic has opened its second Classic Works Centre, this one in Essen, Germany, similar to the one it opened last year in England.

Like the British facility, the new German site will manufacture parts for vintage Jaguars and Land Rovers, as well as providing repairs ranging from simple tuneups and inspections to complete rebuilds and restorations. It also will serve as a Works Legends dealership to sell special classic models from the legendary British brands.

Opening a Works Centre in Germany is a natural progression as the vintage division of Jaguar and Land Rover gear up for establlishing these facilities worldwide, according to Tim Hannig, the director of Jaguar Land Rover Classic.

“As the most mature classic car market in Europe, Germany is the logical first step for the global expansion of Jaguar Land Rover Classic,” Hannig said in a news release. “This new site gives us an excellent platform to cater to the needs of classic Jaguar and Land Rover owners on the continent.”

A Works Legends website has been created to show the vehicles that are available at the U.K. dealer, with plans to add offerings at the German dealership as cars and SUVs are added to its inventory.

  1. I regularly get Germans expressing surprise when displaying my Daimler Doublesix Series 3 formally owned and driven by HM Queen Elizabeth II as they always associate Daimler as the German company Daimler Benz.
