The Classic Center is a showroom, a shop, and a museum.
Jaguar-Land Rover has inaugurated a classic center in Coventry, England's motor city.
The brand-new facility is billed as the world's largest classic car sales, manufacturing, and restoration facility. It's a testament to JLR's growing commitment to preserving and showing off its vast heritage.
The Classic Works is every gearhead's dream come true. There are 54 workshop bays where every kind of restoration work is carried out, including body and mechanical repairs. Technicians perform regular maintenance, too.
Enthusiasts can also buy genuine spare parts directly from the Classic Works, or from participating dealers all around the world. JLR offers over 30,000 individual and guaranteed parts for models that have been out of production for at least a decade. That means anything from a highly-collectible XK120 to a not-quite-sought-after L314 Freelander is fair game.
Finally, JLR's Classic Works is home to a massive collection of about 500 cars. The British company offers guided tours of the collection, and it also loans individual cars to museum and car clubs for special events.
Jaguar-Land Rover's Classic division will continue its expansion. It plans on opening a facility similar to the one in Coventry (but much smaller) in Essen, Germany, later this summer. As of writing, a workshop in the United States isn't in the pipeline.
