Carbon Revolution’s range of one-piece carbon fibre wheels, the CR-9, has been launched onto the European aftermarket. The manufacturer anticipates that its luxury product line, which is lightweight, attractively designed with premium build quality, will entice ultra-high performance vehicle owners at the top end of the market. The wheel’s marketplace positioning is obvious from the CR-9’s pricepoint; prices start around £15,000 for a full set.
The latest figures from cap, a leading provider of data and insight to the automotive industry, reveal that the supercar market could offer a sound return on investment if buyers choose the right make and model. Overall, supercar and some sports car used values have remained level in a depreciating marketplace, but some vehicles are enjoying strong appreciation.
Jaguar Land Rover has announced its chosen location for the OEM’s Special Vehicle Operations Technical Centre. The Technical Centre will be situated in Prologis Park, Ryton, near Coventry, and will become the global centre of excellence for the creation of high-end luxury bespoke commissions and extreme performance vehicles. Operations are set to begin towards the end of the year, with a team of 150 Jaguar Land Rover specialists based at Ryton, around 100 of which highly-skilled engineering and technician jobs will be new. £20 million will be invested in installing specialist equipment and a customer commissioning suite.
