Jaguar claims he has infringed its trademark and has told him to think of a neutral name.

Mr Carr, 52, said: ‘I have been running this business for years providing servicing for Jaguars because I love the car.

‘I am an enthusiast who has built up a business around his interest. It will never make me a fortune but I have a small number of clients who come to me by word of mouth and like what I do.

‘I have a website which uses my company name and I have had plastic business cards printed, which were not cheap, but I have never passed myself off as Jaguar.

‘And I have just invested in a new diagnostic system as used by main dealerships, which cost a lot of money, and then this hits me.’
