Lookers has begun work on a new Jaguar Land Rover franchised dealership which is due to open later this year.

The new site at Aston Clinton will mean closing the nearby Lookers JLR sites in Amersham and Chipperfield. The staff from both sites will be transferred to the new development.

At 16,193 sq ft it will be Jaguar Land Rover’s biggest site in the UK. The showroom will be able to display 18 new cars with more than 100 used cars displayed outside. New handover bays will allow customers to have their cars revealed to them before they drive them directly out of the showroom doors.

Rawdon Glover, UK managing director of Jaguar Land Rover said: “The Jaguar Land Rover brands have seen enormous growth and success over the last few years. We want all our retail sites to reflect the style, comfort and luxury that our customers experience in each and every one of our cars.

“What Lookers has in store with its new showroom is really exciting. We can’t wait for our customers to experience this brilliant new Jaguar Land Rover site.”

Niral Patel, head of business at Amersham Jaguar and Chipperfield Land Rover said: “We’re very excited about this new development. It will cement our position as the primary Jaguar Land Rover retailer in the Buckinghamshire area.

“The dual-arch dealership will be the perfect place to showcase JLR’s ever growing range of prestige cars and, with the so many exiting additions expected this year, the future of both Jaguar and Land Rover looks very bright indeed.”
