2000's
Jaguar XKR 4.2 Convertible 2005 £ 24, 995
One of the final run of ‘classic’ shape XK models, and the most sought after combination for enthusiast owners. As long predicted, these cars have recently crept in price, though it is still possible to buy near the bottom of the curve. However, pristine, low mileage examples such as this are dwindling in numbers as the cars are so enjoyable and practical to use. Finished in Bay Blue with Ivory ‘Classic’ Hide and Navy stitching- added features include CATS suspension, Brembo brakes, navigation, 20” wheels with chrome embellishers, this was Jaguar’s own fleet car, then two owners since- the previous purchasing from main dealer Lancaster in 2014. With just 41,000 miles covered from new, this is a beautifully cared for Jaguar sports car with a fully stamped specialist and dealer service record also has supporting bill copies.

Jaguar XK 5.0 Signature 2014 Reserved
Limited production and most exclusive ‘run out’ model of the aluminium XK; a modern classic and Ian Callum’s first ‘all new’ Jaguar which was praised from the outset. Finished In Italian Racing Red with Ivory Hide, this is close to the ultimate example with just 14,000 miles  covered since new and main dealer servicing adhered to by the letter. There is an option to extend the Jaguar warranty and this car will come freshly health- checked and serviced by the main dealer. The car is in beautiful order throughout and will be re- allocated its original registration number. Serious value against original list, or perhaps the one to put away (think XK150 3.8 S, Commemorative E type, XJS Celebration) - a golden opportunity.

Jaguar XKR Coupe (2007 model) 2006 £ 22, 500
First of the highly regarded ‘X150’ second generation models, and a prime example. The second owner, from whom we acquired the vehicle directly purchased almost new with just 4,000 miles, and today it has covered just 35,000 miles in total- mainly long distance touring. Despite such little use, the car has faithfully returned to the supplying dealer (HA Fox) with ten stamped services, the last in December (with no faults or advisories noted on the Jaguar health-check). From the original purchase invoice on, there is a superb file of paperwork with every bill and MOT certificate which provides complete reassurance. Finished in Liquid Silver with Ivory hide and rarer, desirable ‘classic veneers’. The condition of this car is outstanding and the XKR number plate is included.

Jaguar XK8 4.2 Coupe 2005 Reserved
As many predicted the very last of line ‘classic’ original shape are firming in price, but they still remain sound value at the present time. As ever, the cars with a top pedigree matched with high specification are the most actively sought by daily users, collectors and enthusiasts. With ten services all stamped by Jaguar main agents, bill copies and the latest ‘health check’ report by the servicing dealer, the provenance of this car could hardly be more reassuring. Indeed all work recommended even on a precautionary basis has been carried out by Jaguar, and the mileage of this car is just 34,000 since new. Initially this was Jaguar’s own demonstrator and the extensive specification includes but is not limited to 20” BBS Detroit alloy wheels, CATS suspension, Brembo brakes, dynamic cruise control and limiter, heated and memory front seats and heated windscreen and premium sound. There have been two private owners owning the car six and four years respectively. Finished in Anthracite with Charcoal Hide, this beautifully complements the retro- style and shows the birds’ eye veneers off to maximum advantage. The condition of this car is absolutely stunning.

Jaguar XJ8 SE 3.2 2002 £ 6, 995
The condition of this particular car is just exceptional. The second owner purchased it as a retirement gift almost new and had it meticulously maintained by Jaguar. We acquired the car directly from the owner and since then, it has been known to us- we supplied it to the last owner and carried out the last service. As a very late example of the X308 shape, the later timing chains are fitted and the engine has steel liners- the total mileage is 62,000 from new with a well stamped service record. Finished in Zircon Blue with Barley Hide piped, it would be difficult to source an XJ that would equal this condition.

Jaguar X Type Estate 2.5 SE 2007 £ 6, 995
One of the rarer, and much more sought after petrol all-wheel drive with the more luxurious ‘classic’ upholstery. Finished in Artic Blue with Cashmere Hide, the service record is second to none with 11 stamps (and supporting invoices). Just 54,000 miles has been covered since new. In near to pristine order, we sold this car last summer to a family from Australia for European touring, and 7,000 miles has been covered faultlessly.

Jaguar X Type 2.5 Sport 2002 Reserved
 Extensively publicised in its time, this unique ‘Michael Owen’ special was produced by Jaguar for the legendary England footballer’s personal use in Phoenix ‘Liverpool’ Red and Ivory Hide with red stitching. Michael Owen’s signature was laser printed at Jaguar to both the rear window and bird’s eye maple dashboard and the unique chromed ‘football’ gear knob commissioned by Jaguar bears the . player’s name and his shirt number 10. The car was subsequently donated for Sotheby’s charity auction where ferocious bidding far exceeded its original list price, and remarkably, the new owner then released the car to ‘The Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club’  so it could be raffled, again for charity. Ever since, this famous Jaguar has been privately owned and remains in outstanding condition with 35,000 miles covered since new. The car’s provenance includes numerous associated press articles and one of Michael Owen’s football boots. In addition to being a practical and economical prestige saloon, this is a unique, one- off investment opportunity appealing to enthusiast collectors of both Jaguar cars and football memorabilia. Since acquiring this car directly from the previous owner, we have prepared it to show condition.

Jaguar S Type 3.0 SE 2005 Reserved
One of the revised shape and with the most sought after 3 litre petrol engine, and this car just qualifies for the lower road tax which is a great saving on running costs. Finished in Seafrost with Cashmere Hide, there is a healthy file of paperwork (including recent service) and a supported, modest mileage of 43,000 since new. Bodywork and interior are in showroom condition, and this represents an attractive, retro- Jaguar with a desirable specification.

Jaguar S Type 3.0 2000 Reserved
Becoming thin on the ground, one of the first generation ‘re- born’ S Types in tribute to the 1960’s original compact Jaguars. This is rarer being the five speed manual, and surely the enthusiasts’ choice. The service book is well stamped all with Ryders, the supplying main dealer and this car performs beautifully
with its genuine mileage of just 54,000 from new. With one doctor owning the vehicle until two years ago, he was clearly fastidious as the near spotless coachwork and pristine interior well support. An economical and fine daily user or one to cherish as this has the potential for concours and the retro- shape will certainly become more and more sought after. Finished in Carnival Red with Tan Upholstery.

Jaguar S Type 2.7 TDI 2004 £ 1, 995
As taken in part exchange against a newer S Type,  this Jaguar is a great value run-around in clean condition. Although high mileage (131,000), it has been used more extensively in recent times and maintained very well through a well-regarded Jaguar specialist. Recently MOT’d with no advisories. Finished in Liquid Silver with Tan Hide.

1990's
Daimler V8 4.0 1999 £ 8, 995
Top of the range in its time, and sadly a marque which is now consigned to history despite being favoured by Royalty and Governments alike. This particular car, which we supplied to the last owner four years ago is in exceptionally good shape with 61,000 documented miles covered from new. Most importantly, replacement, upgraded timing chains and tensioners (as recommended by Jaguar for all X308 (pre 2003) models) was carried out by a main dealer at a cost of £1,300. The colour scheme is exceptionally smart in Titanium with Ivory Hide piped in Sable which picks out the high- grade classic wood veneers (including picnic tables) to great effect. This Daimler has been enjoyed as a prestigious, budding classic and the cars are becoming rare in this condition .

1980's
Jaguar Sovereign 4.2 1985 Reserved
A car we know well having supplied it previously nearly five years ago to a long standing customer for every-day use. It has fared extremely well, and having taken the vehicle back in part exchange, we have brought it back up to near immaculate condition for the enthusiast market. The mileage is 67,000 from new which is genuine. Again, mechanically there has been consistently good maintenance and substantial recent expenditure. Finished in Claret with beautiful Doeskin Hide, this is an attractive example which drives and presents beautifully.

1970's
Jaguar XJ6 4.2 1971 £ 17, 995
A huge history file charts the extraordinary story of this low mileage ‘Series One’. For most of its early life, it was in the hands of a titled owner (with interesting Royal connections) and when eventually disposed of, a subsequent owner was approached for the vehicle to be featured in Jaguar Cars own calendar (two copies included with the file) In 1994 the car was retailed by a Jaguar main dealer who were displaying it in their showroom; this is testament to the car’s condition. The car was sold on again in 2011 to the last owner who shipped  it to Hong Kong where it was used and kept for four years. During its time there, the engine was stripped and rebuilt on a precautionary basis (equivalent £6.000 bill included in the file) and air conditioning fitted, which in appearance resembles the ‘Delanair’ systems installed in the 70’s period.  Of further note, the car has original ‘powerglide’ windows, head restraints, properly working period music system, roof ariel  and later rear seat belts. This fine Jaguar returned to England last year and we have maintained it for the owner in his absence and recently purchased it from him. Finished in Dark Blue with Grey Leather, the mileage is exceptionally well substantiated at 41,000 since new and this XJ6 remains in outstanding order.  One of the nicest remaining Series One Jaguars in a dream specification with a great history and the benefit of a nicely ‘run- in’ engine rebuild 4,000 miles ago.

1960's
Jaguar S Type 3.8 1966 £ 37, 995
The finest, original example to come to the market in many years, this was in the hands of the original family until we acquired it through a mutual acquaintance. Used as a weekend car until the mid- 1970’s, it was then laid up in dry storage until the late 1990’s when the son of the first owner took ownership. It was then subject to some sympathetic recommissioning and refurbishment for its return to the road. Since we purchased the car it has been brought up to show standard while the important aspects to its originality have been carefully preserved. The mileage is 24,000, and in 2015 it was featured in articles in both Classic Cars and Classic and Sportscar with studio shots (which we have kind permission to reproduce) and being put through its paces at Chobham test track. Finished in Classic Golden Sand with Red Leather, this has the ultimate specification with an all synchromesh manual gearbox and factory power steering.

OTHER MAKES

Mercedes Benz 190E 1992 Reserved
Finished in Arctic White with Dark Blue check upholstery, this is an unrepeatable opportunity for a Mercedes enthusiast wishing to secure the very best of its type with a rare metal sliding sunroof. Supplied new to a lady in Guernsey, the car tootled around the island used little and often covering just 11,000 miles and this is supported by a good file of paperwork. Three years ago, it was UK registered and has driven just a few hundred miles since. The condition is as one would hope for being pristine in all respects and driving like a fresh, new car.

Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk 2 1991 £ 12, 750
Being in regular use for much of its time with a titled Lady owner, this remained an exceptionally sound and genuine vehicle which was then stored for some years. It was then purchased by an enthusiast who stripped and rebuilt this GTI to showroom condition for the pleasure of doing so, and he devoted some 1,000 hours to the project. It was stripped to its sound metal including the engine compartment and repainted by the coachworks we use. Meanwhile the engine was also rebuilt by a reputed VW specialist, ‘The Engine Shop’ and has since been fully run- in;  there is some outstanding warranty. The history file is enormous with both early, original documentation and recent parts bills. The standard of perfection to the finest detail and the authenticity of finish is astonishing- this is one of those cars which needs to be seen to be believed. VW’s rare Votex styling package, 15” BBS wheels, ‘Bee Sting’ Ariel, golf ball gear knob, black arch and sill trims, Hella fog lights and power steering. The car has never been shown, and is unquestionably a high-level concours contender. Finished in Alpine White with classic  Ultraviolet trim.

Range Rover 4.6 HSE 1995  Reserved
Finished in Epsom Green with Saddle Tan Hide and desirable optional side running boards, this was the perfect  combination for the smart country set who favoured these vehicles. Indeed this example was in the hands of the original owners in Lancashire until 2013 when it was then sold privately to the second owner.  Used latterly to travel between homes in Suffolk and Bedfordshire, 12,000 miles has been covered in the last four years bringing the total to 37,000 since new. The interior is in outstanding condition including the vulnerable tail gate area. With coachwork and trim hard to fault and certainly belying the age of this Range Rover, it drives exceptionally well. This model is on the cusp of becoming collectable, so it could be a smart and practical purchase.

MGF 1.8 VVC 1996 £ 5, 995
These charming modern classics are today’s bargain priced roadsters, but as ever it is essential to search out the very best example. The preservation of this particular car is owed mainly to the second owner who purchased from a main dealer. It has been used sparingly, but regularly as the MOT history supports,  so the present mileage is just 25,000 since new. A point of interest with this car is a collection of 17 MG rally attendance plaques from 1999- 2014  which demonstrate this long term owner’s genuine enthusiasm for the vehicle and MG’s generally. Additional benefits with this car include an attractive dateless number plate, hard top and short- shift manual gearbox adaption. The cam belt has been renewed on a precautionary basis along with a later gasket conversion by a known specialist. Finished in Flame Red with complementary trim, these are the desired ‘MG’ colours. Immaculate throughout.
