Tata-owned Jaguar Land Rover has enjoyed record sales driven by packed order books for the 4th generation Range Rover and the all-new new Jaguar F-Type, successor to the company's iconic E-Type of the 1960's.
Sales were up 14% for the first six months of this year with more than 210,000 vehicles sold, with the F-Type convertible reportedly selling at a rate of 1000 cars a month since its' launch in May.
Those figures are set to be boosted with the launch of the F-Type in India this week.
The car has won widespread acclaim for its' looks and analysts say that it will be hugely popular in India, despite the fact that Indian import duties mean that it will retail for more than double the price of a top-end model in Britain where the car sells for between £58,000 and £80,000.
Sales in the Asia Pacific region in general have grown consistently with Jaguar seeing total sales in China rise by a staggering 85% in the first six months of 2013 and Land Rover enjoying a near 30% jump.
