The first Jaguar F-Type cars have rolled off the production line at Jaguar Land Rover's Castle Bromwich plant, at a rate of one every eight minutes.
The design is one of four new models being built at the site, each bringing billions of pounds worth of contracts and work to supply companies in the Midlands.
