Some new arrivals into the workshops recently; firstly our 1995 Jaguar XJ6 Auto competition car.

Last month we handed the keys of our 1998 Jaguar XJR Supercharged to Sam Holmes of Cheshire after he was the lucky winner of one of our most popular competitions to date!

Feedback from you all suggested you loved the idea of a modern classic that would not only increase in value as the marque becomes rarer but would also sit perfectly outside your home to be used as an everyday vehicle.

So, with that in mind, we will soon have available the little sister to our XJR, our absolutely stunning Jaguar XJ6 auto.

When we say stunning, we really do mean stunning. Having recently undergone a full respray to the value of £4000, the car has been loved and cherished by its previous owner. Sure it comes with a few imperfections, as you would expect from a car that’s 25 years old but only the uber critical amongst us would be offended by this! With it’s immaculate cloth and leather interior, unmarked original Jaguar hubcaps (yes hubcaps), the fact that it is the basic model means its packed with it’s original character.

As we all know, these Jaguar’s were built to a very high standard and feel every bit a quality heritage British performance car. The ride quality of our XJ6 is outstanding. This car floats along the road with elegance and poise. This beautiful modern classic is ready to be enjoyed by a new owner.

Currently MOT’d until April 2021 but will come with a full 12 month MOT, the car has covered just 74,957 and a service book full of Jaguar main dealer and Jaguar specialist service stamps.

Next up, our 1979 Daimler 4.2 Sovereign XJ6 Series III Automatic has arrived from our good friends at TurnTwo Classics

This lovely Daimler has been with its last owner since 1988, some 32 years.

In that time the car has been cherished and loved and only used occasionally and today has covered just 82,000 miles from new.

Good Series III XJ’s are now becoming very rare and collectible, this car is a very early example coming from the first year of production. A very solid car with a strong chassis and little signs of any rust or rot that is still driving lovely today.

The car specification is still as it was in 1979 with the original radio cassette still in place and operating. The car comes complete with its original owners handbook and a few bills and invoices for works carried out and two sets of keys.

Now tax and mot exempt however a fresh MOT has been acquired prior to to arrival in our workshops. Thank you to TurnTwo Classics for doing this.
