Jaguar Land Rover Classic is demonstrating the brand’s commitment to classic vehicle owners and enthusiasts in North America by establishing a new refurbishing/restoration, sales and servicing center in Savannah, Georgia. Set to open in summer 2019, the facility will give access to a range of authentic classic cars, services, parts, and experiences across both British marques.
The new 75,000 square foot facility will be the first for Jaguar Land Rover Classic outside Europe, with more than 75 highly-skilled full-time employees.
Creating a dedicated facility in the US – one of the largest markets for classic car enthusiasts – is an important and exciting step for Jaguar Land Rover Classic. We’re delighted to bring the future-proofing classic expertise and support we’ve nurtured in the UK direct to US clients. The Savannah site is the perfect location for us: a charming setting combining a passionate community and excellent transport links that will make it easier for US clients to benefit from the authentic services and expertise Jaguar Land Rover Classic provides.
— Tim Hannig, Jaguar Land Rover Classic Director
A state-of-the-art 42-bay workshop will be capable of providing the full range of Works services for classic Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles out of production for ten years or more, from vehicle health-checks to full restorations. A purpose-built showroom will offer a relaxed environment for showcasing a selection of pre-owned Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works Legends1 for sale.
The new development will be located close to Savannah airport and the Port of Savannah – the largest single container terminal in North America. Construction is due to start in autumn.
