JLR builds all of its vehicles in the UK, using British built engine blocks (formerly cast by Ford, but now home built).

Granted they use gearboxes built by XF in Germany, (ZF Friedrichshafen AG that is, not the model of car), along with various Bosch components, but it is all designed and built here in the UK.

You can even go on a tour of the Castle Bromwich factory to see them being built. (No photography allowed though.) As a point of interest, the firm's Brown's Lane factory was used to build the Spitfire aircraft; design cues from which have found their way into some recent models including the S-Type and current XJ.
