Oldtimer in Rot 2According to statistics car production in England is once again booming. There is no doubt that their production of cars will soon exceed the production of Germany, which is number one in Europe. Although the majority of the cars made in England is foreign owned, the cars are primarily made and assembled in the United Kingdom.

The England car manufacturing industry first dated back in the late 1880s when Gottlieb Daimler, patented a successful design for a high-speed petrol engine. This was later on promoted by Frederick Simms, a London based consulting-Engineer. The promotion later on led to the formation of The Daimler Motor Company Limited, the company that started England’s first serial car production.

Throughout the years England was able to produce iconic cars that became part of the automotive history. At first, the development was slow but as years went by the production and the development of better and faster cars gradually took its speed. But there was a time where car production took a dive because of the World War. After the war, car production again took off from where it stopped.

Nowadays England is best known for producing premium and sports cars. These brands include Aston Martin, Bentley, Jaguar, Land Rover, McLaren, Mini and Rolls-Royce. Among all these brands the most famous and most expensive is the McLaren.

The most famous McLaren is the McLaren F1, a sports car. This car holds the record for the world’s fastest road car in March 31, 1998. It was able to run at top speed of 372 km/h. It has a unique design wherein the driver is located at the centre positioned slightly forward. Then there are two passenger seats located at each side of the driver. It highlights a great engine and its track oriented feature, but not to the point that it bargains comfort and usability.

Another famous British car is the Jaguar E-Type, also a sports car. It was produced from 1961 up to 1974. Also known as the Jaguar XKE. Its blend of high performance, competitive pricing, and good looks established the marque as a representation of 1960s motoring.
