The Mayor of Croydon, Councillor Mary Walker and Andrew Lester, Jaguar Cars UK sales director, were the special guests at the opening of Doves' newly refurbished and extended Jaguar showroom in Croydon.
General manager Neil Adams said: "We are absolutely delighted with the finished product which cost more than £500,000 and it demonstrates the confidence we have in Jaguar's future.
"These new premises provide us with adequate facilities to launch the new Jaguar X-Type in a few weeks time and other models expected over the next five years."
A collection on the night raised more than £500 for the Mayor's Charity, Barnado's.
