OY reg numbers

On way back from Birmingham yesterday and saw a load on D5's parked up in services with OY reg numbers and Jaguar Land Rover LTD on plates
This was followed by loads more on the roads with same OY reg plates, are these all LR manager cars?

Yep all Land Rover car registrations start with "o" (Oxford area).

All the test mules start with "y" (Leeds area) never worked out why tho.

We have an OV Freelander 61 plate, originally owned by LR.

Anyone know what they would have used it for. 2600 miles in 2 years.

I can only guess that the FL2 was being used to test DS components.

Strictly speaking, these are Land Rover Management cars, not Manager’s cars.

As Management cars, they are purely managed by Land Rover. Some of them will then be driven by staff, but a lot will then be “managed” by Land Rover as they are used as Press Hacks, LR Assist loan cars, LR Experience cars or they may be leased to rental companies. Who would buy a used car with “Hertz” as the previous owner? But who would give it a second thought as a LR “Management” car?

This is not unique to LR.
 Three very nice FL2’s and two superb Disco 4’s to date.
With them both sadly out of production, no new equivalent to either and a new car needed at short notice, I defected to a FFRR SDV8 👍

Land Rover cars as stated 99% start with an O...those in the know can spot a staff car a mile off...staff cars are either employees above a grade or just normal LR fleet cars

Bit like a white O car low mileage is highly likely to be an experience car Thumbs Up
