The Jaguar Land Rover Ltd is a multinational automobile manufacturer based at Whitley Coventry, England. Originally, it was founded in 1922 as the Swallow Sidecar Company owned by Sir William Lyons. Their main product was a motorcycle sidecar, back when passenger cars were not yet prevalent.
Curiously, its name was changed in World War II because the initials of the original brand read SS, the same initials of the most ruthless Nazi security force. Since 2008, it became a subsidiary of the Indian Tata Motors.
In September 2013, Jaguar has made an official statement about opening a research and development center in Warwick, United Kingdom worth US $160 million. Over a thousand academics and engineers have been slotted when the facility becomes operational after its construction in 2014.
Jaguar cars have a reputation for being too luxurious for ordinary people. This particular connotation takes root to the fact that its design exemplifies elegance and high-quality engine performance. The fact that Jaguar Land Rover has made cars for the royalty and some key members of the House of Lords also adds to that protracted prestige. But contrary to popular stereotypes, Jaguar cars are accessible to commoners who can afford it. Some of these models really look good on certain locations in United Kingdom.
