We filled out an incredible dream garage exclusively with JLR vehicles.
If money was no object and you could fill your dream garage with five vehicles from only one company, which one would you pick? So far, we've created dream garages from the Volkswagen Group, General Motors, and Fiat-Chrysler. Despite technically being under the Tata Motors umbrella, Jaguar-Land Rover has such an array of enticing sheetmetal of its own (coupled with the fact we are interested in exactly zero models that Tata produces under its own name), it was a no brainer to make the British marques the focus of our latest dream garage.
The Jaguar F-Type would be an excellent addition to any garage, especially an all-Tata garage. The SVR is the ultimate version of the F-Type which comes with a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 which now produces 575 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The convertible version costs $128,800 and and saves around 55 pounds over the standard model. The weight savings can even be increased to 110 pounds if you get the optional carbon fiber brake system. The SVR can hit 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and has one of the best exhaust notes that you will ever hear. If you want a sports car from JLR, this is by far the best that money can buy.
If you want to enjoy the glorious noise of a supercharged V8, but want to be able to haul your family and their stuff, the Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake is the ultimate car. Unfortunately, Jaguar has replaced this generation of the XF already, but we still prefer this awesome wagon variant to the new model. The hardcore XFR-S version came with a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 with 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque. We hope that Jaguar comes out with the next generation of XFR-S with a slight power boost to around 570. We would also love to see a new Sportbrake variant which combines the XF's gorgeous looks with the practicality of a wagon.
Even though Jaguar now builds an SUV, Land Rover is still where you should go to buy the ultimate SUV. The top-of-the-line Land Rover is the Range Rover SVAutobiography at $199,495. This luxury SUV comes with a 542-hp 5.0-liter supercharged V8 that is tuned for comfort. This thing is packed with leather and wood trim as well as reclining rear seats with leg rests. This SUV is a rival for models like the Mercedes Maybach S-Class and it is easy to see why. This is definitely the most luxurious model from JLR and it deserve a spot in this dream garage.
If you live the US, the Land Rover Defender is probably not what you think of when you picture the British brand. Land Rover stopped selling the Defender in the US back in the 1990s, likely to move forward as a luxury brand. The Defender is very much the opposite of a luxury car. This truck comes with very little sound deadening and is mainly built for tough off-roading. There are some companies like Overfinch that can add luxury touches, but the Defender is best left stripped out and basic. This could easily be in consideration for the best off-roader in the world, so of course it makes our dream garage.
The Nissan Murano Cross-Cabriolet may have been one of the worst cars ever built, but we think that Land Rover may have finally cracked the code for a convertible SUV with the Range Rover Evoque Cabriolet. Your wife or girlfriend will love cruising around in this gorgeous looking convertible. It even makes the perfect vehicle to take to the beach. The Evoque Carbriolet is a great vehicle to round out our all-JLR dream garage. What would your JLR dream garage look like? Let us know in the comments.
