Modern Jaguar coachbuilders

The practice of elaborate coachbuilding carried on up until World War II. Coachbuilding houses in the UK, Italy, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium would build custom bodies. Work done for the chassis that Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Jaguar and other luxury vehicles carmakers would produce. Luxury vehicles were produced as chassis only. Therefore, these were then handed off to various coachbuilders. For instance, Duesenberg, Bugatti and Rolls-Royce employed this method of production in the ‘30s and ‘40s. However, World War II marked a turning point in coachbuilding. Carmarkers had begun to mass-produce their vehicles. They opted for modern monocoque designs, consequently. The body became the vehicle’s primary support structure. Handmade coaches on top of chassis did not fit with the mass-manufacturing processes. However, we can still design and coachbuilt your Jaguar for your.
