Jaguar Land Rover has announced plans to build their Special Vehicle Operations Technical Center in Ryton, England.

Destined to become a "global center of excellence for the creation of high-end luxury bespoke commissions and extreme performance vehicles," the technical center will house a customer commissioning suite, a specialist paint studio and Formula 1-inspired flexible workshops.

The center's first model will be the limited edition F-Type Project 7. The base vehicle will be built at the company's Castle Bromwich plant, before being transferred to the technical center for completion.

According to JLR Special Operations Managing Director John Edwards, "We are excited by the capability and potential that this new facility will give us. We will be creating truly iconic vehicles that reinforce the global reputation of both Jaguar and Land Rover brands as we expand our product portfolio and fulfill our ambitious plans.”
