In terms of the most popular individual models JBR Capital has financed, the Porsche 911 Carrera takes the top spot, with the Range Rover Sport, followed by the Lamborghini Huracán, completing the top three. The fourth most popular model is the Audi R8, while the Mercedes-Benz G Class AMG completes the top five.

As the country began to emerge from lockdown in March, and the demand for high-performance sports cars, supercars, and prestige vehicles exploded to unprecedented levels, the ability to react quickly has proven even more crucial. For many in the automotive community, 2020 was a lost year. It is an understatement to say that customers were itching to get behind the wheel of the car of their dreams in time for summer 2021. We are delighted that by living up to our ‘Fund your passion’ mantra, we were able to help so many enthusiasts get out on the open road in the car they’ve always promised themselves.”

Nayan V Kisnadwala, Chief Executive Officer, said: “The ending of lockdown in March opened the floodgates.  JBR Capital’s unmatched knowledge of the high-end automotive sector, combined with the fact that we had already initiated a recruitment drive to further bolster our highly motivated, customer-focused, and passionate workforce, meant that we were ideally placed to meet the demand. We have increased our workforce by 50% since the start of the year to ensure we continue providing the very best personalized service to our customers as we foresee demand for today’s high-performance cars remaining exceptionally strong.

Range Rover Turns 50!

Range Rover today celebrates 50 years of pioneering innovation, refinement, and all-terrain capability with the introduction of the new Range Rover Fifty.

The original luxury SUV has defined the market since June 17, 1970 and, five decades on, the Range Rover has evolved to become a family of desirable and capable luxury vehicles. Its compelling blend of design, refinement, and engineering innovation has ensured its place as the benchmark for all luxury SUVs.

Over its 50 year lifespan, the Range Rover has achieved many world firsts and completed numerous impressive feats. It was the first SUV to feature a permanent four-wheel drive (4WD) system when it was launched, and in 1989 was the world’s first 4×4 to be fitted with ABS anti-lock brakes. Later in 1992, it became the world’s first 4×4 to be fitted with electronic traction control (ETC) and automatic electronic air suspension – ensuring the refined driving feel Range Rover is famous for, both on and off-road. In 2012, the latest generation Range Rover became the world’s first SUV to feature an all-aluminum lightweight construction, making it lighter, stronger, and more efficient.

It has crossed the notoriously impassable ‘Darién Gap,’ was the first vehicle to ever be displayed at the Louvre Museum in Paris, and has even won the Paris-Dakar rally – twice. No other vehicle combines the
levels of luxury, comfort, and sophistication with off-road capability and on-road performance like Range Rover.

With its clamshell hood, distinctive floating roof, split tailgate, and trademark front fender vents, the Range Rover of today can still trace its roots back to the 1970 original. In its golden anniversary year, it is now the most connected, luxurious, and capable yet.

To celebrate 50 years of a motoring icon, the limited-run Range Rover Fifty will be restricted to just 1,970 vehicles globally, in recognition of the year the original Range Rover was launched.

Building on the luxuriously appointed Autobiography, the Range Rover Fifty features a number of bespoke exterior accents in Auric Atlas as well as two unique 22-inch wheel designs. The badging features a
‘Fifty’ script created personally by Prof Gerry McGovern OBE, Land Rover Chief Creative Officer, which will appear on the exterior of the vehicle and throughout the interior on the unique “1 of 1970” center console commissioning plaque, headrests, dashboard, and illuminated treadplates.

“In the world of luxury vehicles, the Range Rover has always stood apart as peerless and enduring,” said Prof Gerry McGovern OBE, Land Rover Chief Creative Officer. “Its unique and pioneering sensibilities together with an unrivaled engineering approach have been the intrinsic values which our customers have admired since the first of the breed was revealed in 1970.”

The Range Rover Fifty will be available in both standard and long wheelbase body designs with customers able to choose from four carefully curated exterior colors; Carpathian Grey, Rosello Red, Aruba, and Santorini Black. In extremely limited numbers, Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations is also offering the Range Rover Fifty in one of three Heritage exterior solid paints reproduced from the original Range Rover paint palette; Tuscan Blue, Bahama Gold, and Davos White. For customers in North America, each example will be fitted with a 518hp 5.0-liter supercharged V8 powertrain.

Full details for the Range Rover Fifty, including pricing and specifications, will be subject to an announcement later this year, closer to the vehicle’s on-sale date.

Now in its fourth generation with over a million sold in its lifetime, the Range Rover is the ultimate expression of luxury. Its unmistakable, sophisticated design and all-terrain capability have ensured the Range Rover is as revered today as it was in 1970.

The Range Rover Family

After three decades as a leader in the luxury SUV sector, the Range Rover became a family in 2005 with the launch of the Range Rover Sport, a vehicle which combines the luxury and capability of the larger Range
Rover with a sporty and engaging driving character. In 2010, the compact Range Rover Evoque made its debut, aimed at a younger and more urban customer base. In 2017, the family grew once again with the introduction of the Range Rover Velar, filling the space between the Range Rover Sport and Range Rover Evoque. Taking its name from the first Range Rover prototypes, the Range Rover Velar broadened the Range Rover portfolio with a statement reductionist design and a technology-rich interior.

Range Rover Historical Overview

Today marks 50 years since the first Range Rover was revealed, but the story goes back even further. During the mid-1960s, in a bid to revolutionize the growing 4×4 leisure market, the Rover car company’s engineering chief for new vehicle projects, Charles Spencer ‘Spen’ King (nephew of the founders of Land Rover), hatched a plan to combine the comfort and on-road ability of a Rover sedan with the off-road ability of a Land Rover.

Development of the first 100-inch station wagon prototype began during the late 1960s, with the first model being released to critical acclaim in 1970. Its blend of ability – highway cruising, off-roading, and even towing in style and comfort – ensured its instant popularity. The original Classic model was cited as an ‘exemplary work of industrial design’ when it became the first vehicle to be displayed at the world-renowned Louvre Museum in Paris in 1971.

The first-generation Range Rover (1970-1996) was originally only available as a two-door when it went on sale in 1970. During its 26 year lifespan, the Classic continued to evolve with the introduction of the four-door model in 1981 and an automatic gearbox in 1982.

The second-generation Range Rover known as the P38A debuted in 1994 and was instantly recognizable thanks to its familiar silhouette, floating roof, clamshell hood, practical split tailgate, and continuous beltline;
all of which continue to this day. The vehicle also displayed an even more luxurious interior without compromising on on-road ability and off-road capability. It also featured enhanced height-adjustable suspension as well as 4.0 and 4.6-liter V8 gasoline engines, providing greater performance than ever before.

The third-generation Range Rover (2003-2012) delivered a wealth of improvements on all predecessors. Engineering innovations included a stiffer monocoque body (replacing the traditional 4×4 ladder frame) and fully independent suspension with interconnected air springs (at the time nearly all 4x4s had rigid rear axles). The interiors of these vehicles were inspired by high-end yachts, fine furniture and first-class airline seats, providing more space and luxury.

In 2012, the fourth generation and most recent Range Rover debuted. It was the first SUV to feature lightweight all-aluminum construction, saving 926 lb (420kg) in weight compared to its predecessor. Featuring a wealth of new off-road innovations such as automatic Terrain Response® 2 and All-Terrain Progress Control, it has evolved to include efficient new electrified Ingenium engines, a plug-in hybrid electric version, and innovative infotainment and advanced driver assistance technologies.

For the past five years, the Range Rover SVAutobiography has been at the pinnacle of the model lineup, with the most powerful and refined vehicles in Range Rover history. Produced by the Land Rover brand’s Special Vehicle Operations division, customers can also choose from the Range Rover SVAutobiography and SVAutobiography Dynamic – which feature powerful 557hp V8 engines and finely crafted cabins.

Jaguar F-TYPE R-Dynamic

Written by Vaughn Lowery

Photos by Jeff Langlois

Since its inception in 2013, the Jaguar F-Type has been responsible for revolutionizing the sports car industry. With it’s obnoxious exhaust and robust styling, this has come to be one of the most sensual vehicles in the chronicle of the automobile industry.

Design

Reminiscent of an Aston Martin Vantage roadster, this vehicle is sleek and seductive. Caldera red exterior with scarlet red interior. The race-inspired seats cup your derrière with the same type of firmness which NFL players display once a teammate makes a touchdown. Everything along the dashboard is loaded and takes on a minimalist approach to decadence. Contrast stitching intertwined with ambient cabin lighting pushes the driver’s vision. You literally feel like you’re in the cockpit of a fighter jet. LED designer head and tail lamps add a touch of menace to the overall skeleton. 20″ inch wheels on this vehicle’s small frame screams Matchbox hot rod. The infamous R package is badged on the front, sides and back. The skirt, ground effects and active spoiler (which deploys at 70mph) give it an aggressive stance.

Technology

The F Type 10″ infotainment screen is bright and easy to use. With Bluetooth and navigation capabilities, permits the driver to feel even more linked up. 380 watt Meridian stereo system provides a premium sound which mimics an Arclight movie theater experience. Retractable vents on the instrument panel go flush once AC/heating is turned off. The climate control package comes with heated/cooled seats, heated steering wheel and windshield. For 2020, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and front parking sensors are now standard on this manikin.

Safety

With adequate sensors for the driver, lane departure and cruise control keep the vehicle tucked in between the lines of road every bit well as ample space away from vehicles while on extended road trips.

Performance

Behind the wheel of this enthusiast’s ride is a dream come true. The sports seats are outstanding for long distances. The 3.0L supercharged V6 AWD vehicle delivers 380hp and 339lb-ft torque. Agile, responsive and brawny are the best adjectives to describe the overall handling and Powertrain. The steering is accurate and nicely weighted. Of course, the torque vectoring and braking is on par with many of its competitors but nothing to boast about. Let’s face it, if you are seeking a rambunctious roller coaster ride, you may desire to blast out another 50,000 USD for the SVR. And, if you’re in the mood for a manual transmission, then this may not be the sleigh ride for you as it’s no longer offered on this crop.

In short, if you’re in the marketplace for a sybaritic yet sassy vixen that’s just under a 100,000 USD – then this is the car for you. Strong curb appeal, decent gas mileage (mpg: 23 city/30 highway) apace with enough amenities to keep a ‘gadget head’ feigning. The 2020 Jaguar F-Typer R-Dynamic is the benchmark for come-hither coupes, especially with all-wheel drive.

ROSELLO RED

E.C.D. AUTOMOTIVE DESIGN COMPLETES WIDE-BODY DEFENDER 110, ONE OF THE FASTEST THE COMPANY HAS BUILT TO DATE

E.C.D. Automotive Design, known for their prestigious, high-end luxury vehicles, recently completed one of the fastest Defender 110’s the company has ever built.

The custom wide-body Defender 110, named Project Camper, is finished in a beautiful Rosello Red gloss paint. The color is quite stunning, appearing to move from a bright red to an almost-black finish depending on where the truck is and what time of day it is. It’s a color option available on several of the newer Land Rover models.

Project Camper is powered by an upgraded 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine producing 565-horsepower and paired with a dual exhaust system from Borla Performance. The owner of this Defender 110 chose not to have a roll cage installed, which significantly reduces the weight of the truck in comparison to builds with the roll-cage. The result is apparent when accelerating in Project Camper, a pure put-you-back-in-your-seat feeling, making this custom Defender 110 one of the quickest trucks E.C.D. Automotive Design has built to date.

The interior of Project Camper features beautiful ivory-white leather and suede throughout. It provides a stark contrast to the dark exterior. The front and middle-row seats are heated and ventilated Corbeau Trailcat seats while the rear loading area features four inward-facing jump seats. The white and black interior

“The weight reduction in comparison to our other builds, paired with the upgraded LS3, makes this D110 one of the quickest trucks we’ve ever built to date,” says Tom Humble, founder of E.C.D. Automotive Design.

E.C.D. Automotive Design remains a leader in producing custom British classics that feature a culmination of new technology, high-end luxury, and performance.
