Geneva – MENA Herald: Ahead of next week’s Geneva Motor Show Jaguar Land Rover has released a new film featuring two British design greats, Ian Callum and Gerry McGovern. In their first-ever recorded interview together, shot at the Royal College of Art, the heads of Jaguar and Land Rover design provide an exclusive insight into the importance of British creativity and how this philosophy shapes and forms the design of Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles.
Ian and Gerry compare their favourite models and their journey up to the point they found themselves working under the Jaguar and Land Rover brands.
