Jaguar Land Rover Classic Expands Base of Operations
Jaguar Land Rover Classic increases global footprint with first facility outside the United Kingdom.
Jaguar Land Rover Classic is accelerating its global expansion strategy with the opening of a brand new Classic Center in Germany. The Essen-based center is the first facility of its kind outside the UK. The new Essen Classic Center is directly operated by Jaguar Land Rover Classic, providing factory service in Germany.
In addition the company is also introducing a service to support classic car enthusiasts seeking pre-owned Jaguar Land Rover classic vehicles using the new ‘Works Legends’ online portal.
With a team led by Dr. Ralf Klasen, Head of Jaguar Land Rover Classic Germany, the new 48,438 square-foot Jaguar Land Rover Classic Center Germany at Essen Kettwig follows the successful opening of Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works in June 2017. The Classic Centers offer owners and enthusiasts a wide range of authentic Jaguar and Land Rover classic cars, services, parts and experiences.
Jaguar Land Rover Classic Director, Tim Hannig, said: “The opening of Classic Works in Coventry last year gave our team the opportunity to deliver world-class vehicle services to a rapidly-increasing number of enthusiasts.
“As the most mature classic car market in Europe, Germany is the logical first step for the global expansion of Jaguar Land Rover Classic. This new site gives us an excellent platform to cater for the needs of classic Jaguar and Land Rover owners on the continent.”
Classic Works-inspired workshop facilities enable comprehensive vehicle health checks, servicing and repairs. This includes everthing from routine service to more intricate repairs, such as engine rebuilds. Secure storage for clients’ cars is also offered, including maintenance to ensure they’re always ready to drive.

Available from both sites, pre-owned Works Legends are specially selected examples of classic Jaguars and Land Rovers. These range from usable daily drivers to outstanding concours-standard show cars, and even rare vehicles possessing unique historical significance. All have to pass a 125-point health check and are sold with a manufacturer-backed 12-month warranty.
