Ooh, that's a shame, their C-Type is an impressive car and their stand at Goodwood Revival was always buzzing with potential customers (wealthy looking toffs, mostly).

My guess is that overheads and production costs combined with the time it takes to assemble each car - as I recall they were advertising one 'in build' car at a time for completion in six months - made it very difficult to make an operating profit.

The whole thing with JLR suing is probably down to recent changes in EU copyright/design law and JLR now having both a classic restoration arm and a sideline building continuation models.

I doubt I could ever have afforded one of their cars, but it's a real shame nonetheless.
