Jaguar Land Rover purchases over 500 iconic British cars

27th July 2014

The recently-launched 'Special Vehicle Operations' division within Jaguar Land Rover has just acquired an incredible collection of 543 classic cars. The vehicles represent 60 years of British manufacturing and some of the best-known iconic names in motoring history.

SVO is likely to bring these cars to international heritage shows and the regular events they appear at around the world. Impressively, all 543 models were purchased from one dedicated collector: entrepreneur James Hull. The collection is the largest number of privately-owned British vehicles in existence, and has been valued in the tens of millions of pounds as a whole.

A brand new Browns Lane workshop is being built in the UK to house SVO, and it's expected that many of the cars will be expertly restored there. The collection's highlights include former Prime Minister Winston Churchill's own Austin, and a Bentley car once owned by musician Elton John.

The number of Jaguar cars within the collection is substantial, yet in SVO's other works Land Rover is still a key priority. It has now been confirmed that a new high-performance edition of the Range Rover Sport will go into development, with the V8 engine potentially optimised for 542bhp.
