Austin Rover Links
The Austin Rover Group (truncated ARG) was a British engine maker. It was framed in 1981 as the mass-market auto fabricating subsidiary of British Leyland (BL). It was the consequence of an exhaustive rebuilding programme planned to safeguard BL from practically certain obscurity, and with the Triumph, Morris, Riley and Wolseley marques then successfully outdated, the new, leaner auto business was rechristened as the Austin Rover Group and centered fundamentally on the Austin and Rover marques.
In 1989, ARG was joined into the Rover Group, the new name of its parent organization. In 2008, Tata Motors obtained the Rover marque, and previous BL and Rover Group organizations, Land Rover and Jaguar Cars, and the previous BL marques Daimler and Lanchester, from the Ford Motor Company. The Austin marque has been resigned and the Mini marque is possessed by BMW.
