Celebrate St George's Day in style with this crop of great British cars launched or due to be launched this year, from beautiful Bentleys to Ferrari-beating hypercars like the McLaren P1 due on sale later this year. Yes, many of these brands are foreign owned, but every car listed here is built in the UK and provides jobs for British people.

Yes, these cars are constructed in the U.K. using mainly foreign parts which were paid for by foreign owners who pay very little tax in the U.K. & all profits go overseas.

I remember when I was at school 40-odd years ago my economics teacher saying how good our economy was at the time - he pointed out how we used to export Vauxhall Vivas in kit form to Persia (as it was then) for them to build and sell on, as a way of helping their economy.

 

Now our government celebrates when other countries do the same to us. When exactly did we become a third world country?????

I think the problem with Britain is people want to help others before they can help their own, reason why cars stopped being British.

... hard to believe ! .. February 2013 and Britain still has a car industry !

 

... I don`t believe it ! .. you actually mean that someone might defer from buying a new vehicle on the grounds of its nationality !

 

... (unpractical for the very large majority .. Aston Martin,Bentley,Jaguar,Land Rover/Range Rover,McLaren and Rolls Royce !)

... (of foreign origins .. Honda,Nissan,Toyota !)

... (sports cars .. high insurance .. Caterham,Lotus,MG !)

 

... ... it only leaves the Mini !  ~

 

... ( ps. France is only 23 MILES away ... ) ...

Both the MINI Countryman and Paceman are built in Austria and not in the UK.

How much did the UK tax payer pay towards this baby we paid 379 million to make the last new Range Rover model

It's a pity we don't have a UK based V8 Touring Car Championship I suspect the only place where we are likely to see the Jaguar XF/XFR race is Australia where they have the V8 Supercars or even the Italy based Superstars which does have a race in the UK

There is no longer a British car thanks to the unions who destroyed our car industry

I drive a Jaguar XJ.  My previous car was the older model Jaguar XJ.  Quite simply they are the two best cars I have ever owned.  I had driven Mercedes cars before that.  I had four of them.  I will never touch a Mercedes again.  The last two I had were badly made and had serious reliability problems. 

 

Instead of moaning about foreign parts and foreign owners paying little tax, why don't you go and buy a British built car?  If you want an excellent low/medium priced car, buy a British built Japanese brand.  If you want a luxury car which is special buy a Jaguar or a Range Rover.  If you want the best utility vehicle buy a Land Rover Defender.  These are the best and they are British.

 

Maybe you want to be like lemmings and drive around in hyped up cars like Audi, BMW and Mercedes.  An Audi is an expensive VW, BMWs are ugly and Mercedes has lost its image.

I have no idea what you guys are talking about.  The UK is a winner in car manufacturing rather than a loser.  In year 2012 the top 4 manufacturers of cars in Europe were the following.  Germany – 5.649 million, Spain – 1.979 million, France – 1.967 million, UK – 1.576 million.  Of these 4 countries car production declined in every country between years 2010 and 2012, with the exception of the UK.  Car production in the UK went up between 2010 and 2012. The UK and Germany made roughly the same number of cars in 2012 as they did in 1990.  France made half the number of cars in 2012 (1.967 million) as it did in 1990 (3.769 million).  Italy made more cars than the UK in 1990 but in year 2012 it made less than half the number of cars the UK did.
