Jaguar XK8 4.2 Convertible 2005 £22, 995
Incredibly, this iconic shape celebrates its 20th birthday having been launched at the 1996 Geneva Motor Show, and this ‘run out’ model of the classic XK8 may be destined to follow in the footsteps of Commemorative E Types and XJS Celebrations, both of which are highly prized late versions of their line. As the original Jaguar print- out states, this particular XK8 was unusually well specified with the discreet ‘R’ badge on its rear panel signifying that the car was ordered with the firmer and more precise handling package. This includes super sport suspension, Brembo brakes and 20” BBS split rim alloys with low profile tyres. Externally this last of line is identified by the re- styled frontal air intake, mesh lower grille and mini boot spoiler. There is a full main dealer service history and we know the car well having supplied it previously to a regular client. Used throughout its life as a weekend, occasional use vehicle the mileage is just turned 19,000 since new. Finished in Platinum Silver with Ivory hide and classic veneers, this is a smart and highly saleable combination. Further extra cost options include Premium Sound music system. As would be expected with this car’s pedigree, the condition is close to perfect. Price includes a fresh main dealer service with a ‘health check’ carried out. The ultimate example.

Jaguar XK8 Convertible 2001 Reserved
Prepared and supplied by ourselves to the second owner two years ago, this handsome full convertible has covered just 37,000 miles from new. For style, quality and an exhilarating drive, it is hard to beat the XK8. Finished in the most requested combination of Sapphire Blue with Cream Hide, classic veneers and a dark blue electric roof, the car has obviously been cherished as the condition testifies. With values noticeably hardening for these once underrated luxury sports cruisers, this low mileage example is an exciting find

Jaguar XJ8 4.2 SE 2004 £ 11, 750
The X350/358 range mark the end of a line of big, luxury XJ saloons with styling traceable back to the first XJ of 1968. Low mileage, properly maintained examples are becoming rarer, especially with the rapid and super- smooth 4.2 litre engine which was often favoured by long distance users. This highly specified ‘SE’ has a fastidiously stamped main dealer service record from new- initially with HA Fox and Creamer of Kensington for the past four years. The mileage is 53,000. We purchased this car directly from the second owner who only parted with it due to relocation with work overseas. The Zircon Blue coachwork is exceptional, wheels refurbished with new Pirelli  tyres and the Cream Leather interior is simply outstanding. The price includes a main dealer heath check with any necessary rectifications carried out for the benefit of the new owner.

Jaguar S Type 2.5 2005 £ 6, 500
Jaguar’s retro inspired S Type was revised during production and this is one of the first with the re- styled back and round instruments within the cluster. This example has had two owners since new and always main dealer maintained as the stamped service record supports. It has covered 56,000 miles since new and is driving very well in fine overall condition. Finished in Zircon Blue with Cashmere Hide, these cars offer great value in the market, so it is well to select one such as this with low ownership, comprehensive history and in immaculate order.

1990's
Jaguar XKR 4.0 Coupe 1998 Reserved
Look at these photographs and it’s hard to imagine this will not be a valuable classic car in the future. The body style was inspired by ‘E Type’, it has one of the manufacturer’s most comfortable and elegant interiors of all time and this is a fast drivers’ car with every desired comfort. This super charged ‘R’ is rarer and the ultimate in supercharged performance with a firmer handling package. The styling is further enhanced with discreet boot spoiler, bonnet louvers and mesh effect lower vents which distinguish the ‘R’. We purchased this example from the second owners who had purchased it from TWR Jaguar in 2000. Indeed all servicing and maintenance has remained main dealer ever since and all bills are in a comprehensive file. Importantly, this car had the timing chain tensioner upgrades carried out by Jaguar in 2008- work which would by priced in excess of £2,000 with a main dealer today. The Carnival Red coachwork with this Jaguar is second to none, and unusually the Cream Leather ‘classic spec.’ interior still possesses a young car feel and smell. With over carpets fitted from new and seats hardly creased, this car looks to have travelled even less its mileage which is still just 38,000 from new. Even the wheels have avoided kerbing, and all in all this XK is a credit to its former owner.

Daimler Six 1996 Reserved
The superior level of trim with a Daimler includes folding picnic trays in the rear compartment, privacy blinds, softer Autolux leather and gold inlay to the wood veneers. Externally, the fluted chrome grilles front and rear easily distinguish these high cast models. Daimlers commanded a significant premium price over a Jaguar when they were new, so they accounted for just over 2% of the X300 model production, and this was again split almost equally between standard and long wheel base versions. This standard wheel base car is one of the few surviving with a low mileage of 47,000 covered since new, and it has been in the hands of the last owner for thirteen years. Finished in Carnival red with Ivory Hide and a matching Ivory hand painted coach line, this immaculate example with the ultimate level of equipment is suitable for daily transport or as a weekend enthusiasts’ car. Produced as an X300 for just three years, many owners favour this model not only for its scarcity, but for the easily maintained and ultra- dependable AJ16 straight- six engine. These rarer X300 Daimler also have more chrome work than the model that succeeded them.

Daimler V8 1999 Reserved
The Daimler version of X308 offers the very highest level of specification and there are many distinguishing features to make this exclusive version instantly recognisable. Crown alloy wheels, fluted chrome work and chrome window frames enhance the line of the longer wheel base and inside the cars both driver and passengers travel in style. Apart from extra leg room, deep pile wool over rugs, gold wood inlay, folding picnic tables to the rear compartment and ruched higher quality soft hide piped with Daimler ‘D’ monograms are extra-luxurious touches. This extraordinarily well maintained example has covered 80,000 miles with a stamped service record second to none. We first purchased the car from its first owner in 2010 and supplied it to the second.  It has just been received back to us in part exchange. The Titanium coachwork and external trimmings belie the car’s age and the Grey leather upholstery has been truly cherished.

1980's
Jaguar Sovereign 4.2 1985 £ 12, 750
Supplied new by Weybridge Automobiles and maintained exclusively by them for the first owners, this low mileage car was so ‘over- serviced’ that the book had been stamped right through (21 times) by 2005 when the car had covered just 25,000 miles. With bodywork, interior, engine compartment all pristine, the car was sold on from the dealer hall at the NEC Classic Motor Show. We first acquired the car in 2011 at 33,000 miles covered with the maintenance file brimming with yet further invoices. As if this was not sufficient reassurance of the car’s integrity the next owner paid for the car to be thoroughly surveyed by JEC Jaguar experts Ken and Peter Bell and needless to say their report was glowing. We purchased the car back two years later (then 37,000 miles) due to the owner’s unexpected relocation and sold it on to a Surrey businessman who had been searching for years to find such a properly maintained classic Jaguar to use as his every day car. Yet still this last owner has lavished a further £13,000 on the vehicle maintaining a standard worthy of concours and carrying out a programme of component replacements on a preventative basis while continuing to use it daily. The mileage now stands at 52,000 since new and we are delighted to offer the car for sale once again. Finished in Sage Green with Doeskin Hide, the Sovereign was the premium model of its day with air conditioning, electric seat adjust, on board computer, wood door cappings and pepperpot alloy wheels. The last owner also had a plug- in engine block heater discreetly installed.

Jaguar XJ6 3.4 1986 £12,750
The charm of a Series 3 is its shape which looked classic even when the cars were current because the basic design dated from the 1960’s. Most customers who bought these cars new favoured some modern touches such as pepperpot wheels, fuel injection and the digital computer, but the elderly first owner of this particular example seemed to desire his brand new Jaguar to look more traditional, and it would have seemed quite old fashioned even when it was new. The original order form and subsequent purchase invoice from Doves of Croydon confirm this to be a 3.4 litre- the longest serving XK engine from 1948, but a rare choice by 1986 and the only engine option available on an XJ6 with carburettors.  A  five speed manual gearbox was specified, a real scarcity at the time. With chrome pressed bolt on hub caps, and ordered in Windsor Blue, this was one of the few non- metallic colours. Inside, the Cheviot Tweed upholstery looks well in keeping and as one of the very last of line, Jaguar upgraded the veneers to Sovereign specification with veneered door cappings and gear selector panel. The speaker surrounds and tread plates are also chrome on these very late cars. We understand that the owner died in the late 1990’s and the car was inherited by relatives before being sold on to an enthusiast. During the past decade, the mileage has remained nominal and the car has currently covered just 34,000 miles from new. With the price gap widening in favour of early XJ’s for their older more characterful features, this should be a very tempting enthusiast’ purchase, particularly with its ultra- rare manual transmission, and being in show condition throughout.

1970's
1960's
Daimler Sovereign (420) 1967 £ 22, 750
This was the most refined and costly of Jaguar and Daimler’s family of medium sized luxury saloons, and the first model to bear the name Sovereign which was to become the manufacturer’s label for their exclusive model versions until 2009. This exceptionally rare manual with overdrive example is an old friend which we first purchased at a Jaguar event in Beaulieu 21 years back and sold on to a client in The Lake District who used it as his only transport until we re- acquired it from him 9 years ago. The car was then stripped to bare metal and repainted to a very high standard while the exceptional interior, engine bay and chrome work remained mainly original requiring just light rejuvenation to return it to show condition. The next and last owner was a retired Jaguar Browns Lane employee with a clear understanding of how the cars should be so he recognised the potential with this wonderfully straight and genuine car and so embarked on a thorough process of detailing to compete for concours. His efforts were richly rewarded with numerous awards and selection by JDC for the ultra-prestigious Champion of Champions where the car proudly shared stage at the NEC with some of the finest classic Jaguar and Daimler models in existence. Additionally this car has been featured in numerous publications including front cover of Jaguar Driver and Classic and Sportscar. Despite all this the car has not been a trailer dolly and has been driven 12,000 miles in the last nine years bringing the total to 69,000. The service history is huge with early and recent invoices from reputed garages proving consistently high levels of maintenance. Finished in one of the most favoured colour schemes of Opalescent Silver Grey with pale Blue- Grey Hide, this is a wonderful classic model with the finest provenance.

BMW 325i SE Convertible 2010 £ 14, 995
The ‘3 Series’ may not be a unusual sight just yet, but finding an example with such a desired specification as this would present a challenge. As the convertible with electrically folding hard top, it is a joy to drive in any season and this rarer, plush SE model with full leather and automatic transmission makes this a most refined and luxurious combination. Additional equipment includes but is not limited to 17” light alloy V spoke wheels, electric folding mirrors, enhanced Bluetooth function, navigation system- professional, voice control, front seat heating, front and rear park assist. The car has had two owners from new and boasts a file of paperwork with the service record. The mileage is 49,000 since new. Attractively finished in Platinum Bronze with Cream Beige Nappa Hide, these models are great value for what they offer.

BMW 318i SE 1998 £ 6, 500
This must surely offer an unbeatable provenance having been with the same family from the start and it has covered only 11,000 miles. Used little but often on The Isle of Man since new, it has clearly benefitted from fastidious ownership and being driven on the unsalted and sparsely populated roads of the island. It is nice to see the original showroom sales brochure, order form, original purchase invoice and service bill copies along with the stamped service book and pristine handbook pack.  Driven directly to Surrey, we have checked and serviced this BMW, and it is sublime in all respects. The E36 was the third generation 3 Series and it earned the distinction of being judged one of the best 10 new cars by ‘Car and Driver’ every year it was in production. With newer models still suffering depreciation and earlier 3 Series appreciating, this car might offer its new owner excellent value prestige motoring while proving to be an asset. Finished in Titan Silver with complementing Grey upholstery, this automatic BMW with power assisted steering and the optional extra of air conditioning is a delight to drive.

Volkswagen Beetle 1.6 Convertible 2003 £ 6, 500
Faithfully re modelled, the Beetle’s famously bulbous panels adapted beautifully to the modern interpretation. With original Beetles highly sought after with collectors, this model presents astonishing value for a thoroughly practical modern driving car with immense character. If ever there was one to cherish while prices remain attractive, this is it. Purchased new as a birthday present for the first and only owner, the mileage is still just 21,000. The original VW dealer folder is brimming with paperwork starting with the original order and purchase invoice, MOT’s, invoices, past tax discs etc. This five speed manual model has has an electric hood
, power steering, in- built cd player and original dashboard flower. As to be expected, the totally original Silver paintwork and Charcoal fleck interior is lovely while the Black electric folding roof and protective cover remains in pristine condition.
