BRUCE LYNTON SNARES SUNSHINE JAGUAR DEALERSHIP
Written on the 1 October 2015 by Nick Nichols
JAGUAR and Land Rover are finally coming under the one roof on the Gold Coast with the Warren Group selling Sunshine Jaguar to luxury dealer Bruce Lynton Automotive Group.
The undisclosed sale will settle in November when the existing Bruce Lynton Land Rover dealership will be renamed Bruce Lynton Jaguar Land Rover.
Warren Group has operated the Sunshine Jaguar dealership for the past 15 years and it was named Jaguar Australia's Metropolitan Dealer of the Year in 2011 and 2012.
However, the sale of its Jaguar business does not spell the end of its relationship with Jaguar Land Rover.
Warren Group, controlled by Paul Warren and Steve Kelly, operates Macarthur Jaguar Land Rover in Sydney and it has committed to opening a purpose-built facility for Macarthur Land Rover in Campbelltown.
Bruce Lynton also plans to upgrade its existing Land Rover dealership on the Gold Coast to accommodate the Jaguar brand.
Dealer principal Beric Lynton says he plans to enhance the footprint of the Jaguar and Land Rover brands in the Gold Coast region.
"The Bruce Lynton Automotive Group has existed for over 40 years on the Gold Coast," Lynton says.
"We have been representing Land Rover for over 20 of those years and thoroughly look forward to adding Jaguar to the group.
"This is an exciting addition, especially considering the new models that have already been launched and are coming in the future."
