You may be surprised, or not, that a number of British Car Manufacturers are no longer actually owned by the Brits.
The British car industry has been in decline over the last couple of decades, and many manufacturers like Rover have long gone bankrupt and disappeared altogether. Many others have been sold to other companies or investors, but are still being made in Britain.
Aston Martin is owned by two investments companies from Kuwait, Investment Dar and Adeem Investments. They are being built in Gaydon, Warwickshire.
Bentley Motors is owned by Volkswagen and built in Crewe.
Jaguar/Land Rover is owned by Tata Motor Company of India. They share production facilities in Liverpool and Solihull, Birmingham
Lotus is owned by Geely of China, and is built in in a small village called Hethel in Norfolk
Mini is owned by BMW and built in Oxford
MG Motors is owned by SAIC of China and assembled at Longbridge, Birmingham
