Justin Beiber gets driver’s license, will drive a Range Rover

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

The millions of fans of teen sensation Justin Bieber shouldn’t be surprised if they see the 16-year old singer behind his Range Rover some time soon.

The Canadian singer has reportedly received his driver’s license from the Atlanta Department of Motor Vehicles, though Bieber’s rep has not released a statement on whether or not the claims are true, according to entertainment news site TMZ.

Bieber recently revealed in an interview with the British TV show “Live on Studio Five” that R & B superstar Usher bought him a Range Rover for his birthday.

“Usher helped buy me a car. He bought me a Range Rover. I can drive. They wanted a bigger car so if I got in an accident I’m not going to get as hurt,” the teen star told the show.

Bieber is one of the youngest male artists to reach the top spot on the Billboard 200 with his new album “My World 2.0.” The record is currently held by Stevie Wonder, who topped the chart in 1963 as a 13-year-old with “Little Stevie Wonder/The 12 Year Old Genius.”

CEO David Smith parts ways with Jaguar Land Rover

Monday, January 25th, 2010

Used Jaguar models in New Jersey may begin to attract additional attention following news that chief executive officer David Smith has resigned from Jaguar Land Rover, effective immediately.

A company spokesman declined comment on the reasons for Smith’s abrupt departure, stating that his resignation was “confidential between the company and Mr Smith.” Jaguar issued a brief statement thanking Smith “for his efforts in the role and for his services to Jaguar and Land Rover over many years.”

Smith was installed as CEO after Ford Motor Company sold the car manufacturer to India-based Tata, who purchased Jaguar Land Rover for $2.3 billion in 2008. Auto Week reports that the former CEO lacked industry experience in production, engineering and marketing.

In November of last year, Tata announced that Jaguar had lost nearly $100 million in the third quarter alone and subsequently cut almost 2,500 jobs, ABC News reports.

Former BMW and Opel head Carl-Peter Forster had been linked to the newly opened position, although Tata has dismissed the notion that they have a specific candidate in mind for the role.
