The purchase, the price of which was not disclosed, brings to five the total number of substantial, standalone Jaguar businesses operated by Manchester-based Lookers.

Amersham Jaguar, which is located on London Road, to the north-west of Watford and London, is a welcome, strategic addition to Lookers’ wider Jaguar and Land Rover network in the UK, the company said.

Lookers currently operates successful, established Jaguar businesses at Charles Hurst Jaguar Belfast; Lookers Jaguar Park Royal and at key sites in Glasgow and Motherwell through its wholly-owned Taggarts Motor Group subsidiary.

Charles Hurst Limited in Northern Ireland is also part of Lookers plc. Lookers also has a substantial Land Rover business in the UK, operating from 10 locations around the UK.

Lookers chief executive Andy Bruce said: ‘Amersham Jaguar is a well-known and well-respected business with a reputation for delivering quality customer service to its significant Jaguar customer base.’

Gordon Haining, pictured, franchise director for Jaguar and Land Rover, said: ‘We look forward to welcoming the great team at Amersham Jaguar to Lookers.’

In December 2014, Lookers opened a multi-million-pound Land Rover showroom in Battersea, creating 30 jobs. The cutting-edge, custom-built site was the first Land Rover facility of its kind to be built in the UK.
