Alongside Panther Westwind, Robert established the Jankel Group – a coachbuilding company. When he turned his focus to this side of the business, it was to build customised versions of existing cars for high-end brands including Rolls Royce and Bentley. Cars built in this period include the Rolls Royce Silver Spur and specialist all-terrain vehicles for Range Rover.
The company then moved into adding armour to existing vehicles for both military and law enforcement customers. With an in-depth understanding of how to customise a vehicle built on a standard chassis, and an eye for innovation and adopting new technologies, Robert Jankel and his company built an enviable reputation for high quality design and production.
That heritage is still very much present in the Jankel of today. Many of our team worked with Robert, and we are committed to bringing his enthusiasm, ingenuity and attention to detail to all the projects we work on, and all the partners we work with – wherever they are and whatever they need.
