Jaguar Land Rover has unveiled record-breaking profits of nearly £234 million in just three months.
The latest profits announced represent the best quarterly financial results by far since the Tata takeover of the car giant two years ago.
The figures show the firm made £233.82 million profit for April, May and June.
A Jaguar Land Rover spokeswoman said: “This is our fifth successive quarter of improved financial results.
“Last quarter’s profit was £89 million and we are £145 million up on that. It is great news for JLR and also for Tata.
“We had responded to a very difficult economic environment with aggressive actions and the foreign exchange rate has been very favourable.”
Sales figures soared across a string of markets, with China showing a 104 per cent increase on a year ago.
The UK and US were both up by 23 per cent, while Russia was 18 per cent up.
