Jaguar XJR 4.2 2009 Reserved
Very last of the ‘traditional’ XJ line, the aluminium bodied X358 is visually distinguished from its predecessor by chromed side vents and distinctive lower mesh grilles. This super- charged XJR version is the most sought after Jaguar model and is extremely rare with just 34,000 miles covered from new and one owner since it was just over a year old. This immaculate vehicle is main dealer maintained and will have the benefit of a Jaguar health- check report for peace of mind. Finished in Savoy Grey with Ivory perforated leather, this is both a modern classic and a practical, luxury and performance business car.

Jaguar XK8 4.2 Coupe 2005 £ 18, 500
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 XK8 4.2 Convertible 2003 Reserved
Having turned the corner to gain some classic status, it is hard to imagine the beautifully styled original XK8 will not become even more appealing as the good ones disappear. Recently serviced and checked over by a Jaguar main dealer, this car looks and drives as it should with just 41,000 miles covered since new. Presented to an extremely high standard in all respects, this represents excellent value as a low mileage, well cared for example. Finished in  Anthracite with Charcoal Hide and extra cost option classic veneers, this is a very smart and distinctive combination.

Jaguar XK8 4.0 Coupe 2002 Reserved
One of the late examples so therefore having steel liners and the upgraded timing chain set up. This meticulously kept XK8 has the benefit of main dealer maintenance throughout its time and a service carried out within the last year at Guy Salmon and very little use since. A health- check was also carried out by Guy Salmon, the only recommendation being for two tyres and these have just been replaced with matching Pirellis. Finished in Jet Black with Cream Leather interior and classic veneers, this is a sound, good value purchase with growing interest and kudos for this ‘modern E Type’ shape. The mileage is extremely attractive being just 34,000 since new

Jaguar Super V8 2006 Reserved
Extremely rare on the market, the ‘Super 8’ offers Jaguar’s ultimate specification with a super-charger under the bonnet and the finest luxury. As a long wheel base, this is top of the range. There is a full service history with this example including a recent ‘health- check’ which reads favourably. The mileage is 63,000 from new. Finished in Metallic Racing Green with Ivory Hide piped in Black with Black carpeting, this is a handsome machine in truly outstanding condition.

Jaguar S Type 2.7TD 2005 Reserved
Returning 36 MPG with advantageous road tax (£295 PA), this popular turbo-diesel model is an effortless performer with a 6 speed automatic gearbox. Supplied by ourselves 7 years ago to a long standing client, this meticulously kept example comes back to the market with a full stamped service history and just 43,000 miles covered from new. Finished in Black with Cream Hide, this stylish car is in stunning condition. Offering practicality as well as characterful motoring.

Jaguar XJS 4.0 Coupe 1993 Reserved
This ‘cat’ is already out of the bag, the XJS is a classic in waiting with values having started to harden over the past year or so. The later ‘double bumper’ models are scarce and sought after with low mileage and this is one of the finest around. Interestingly, this was one of the Jaguar factory’s demonstrators, and we first purchased this car after it was disposed of by the first private owner in 2002. The second owner purchased it from us having had a full engineers’ report carried out by renowned expert Ken Bell, but he only used the Jaguar for two years before putting it in to dry storage as a long term keeper. We purchased the car back from him last year, re- commissioned the mechanics as necessary and it was sold on to the third private owner, a regular client of a mutual trade acquaintance. Owing to a change in circumstances, we have again purchased the car with its stunningly low mileage of just 34,000 since new. Finished in Diamond Blue with contrasting Grey Hide, this is a very attractive purchase.

Daimler Double Six HE 1992 Reserved
There is a very interesting history with this Daimler which was built to order in 1991, but this was subsequently cancelled so the factory retained and registered it in May 1992- an exceptionally late registration. The first private owner enjoyed the car for 5 years before we acquired it through a main dealer in 1997 with just 15,000 miles covered. We sold it on to the last owner who wished to upgrade the standard specification interior (which is partly vinyl) to match the quality of his Bentley. Suffolk and Turley were commissioned to re- trim the entire seating (including backs), centre transmission console and door panels fully in hide. The carpeting and headlining were also re- trimmed in higher quality materials. For the past 19 years, the car has been used principally at the owner’s home in The Channel Islands with periodic journeys across UK and France to keep it properly exercised. This Daimler has been correctly maintained with a huge file of invoices and a well stamped service record to verify. This immaculately kept Series Three returns to us with just 26,000 miles covered since new, while the interior has only seen 9,000 miles of wear- it is pristine. Finished in Talisman Silver with Dove Grey Hide, this is a stunning and cosseted example and unquestionably one of the best of its kind.

Daimler Double Six HE 1990 Reserved
Final development of the original XJ shape with Pinafarina’s input, the very last run of ‘Series Three’ models have the finest finishes in terms of build quality and level of equipment, but retain much of the character with the original design. This sparingly used example has an impressive, stamped service record despite a very low mileage of 33,000 miles from new. Driving very well and having the benefit of much recent expenditure, the Bordeaux Red coachwork is close to immaculate and the Doeskin Hide interior is outstanding in all respects. Magnificent throughout.

Jaguar XJS 6.0 Convertible 1993 Reserved
Third, and final generation XJS which is the most desirable especially, as a V12 fully unleaded 6 litre. This has to be the car to cherish and put away having been purchased as a birthday present brand new for the first and only lady owner. Supplied by Dutton Forshaw (now Stratstone) they have been entrusted with the servicing and maintenance throughout- bill copies, service book and MOT certificates verify the mileage of 16,000 since new. Following very little use in recent years, we were introduced to the car via a mutual contact at Jaguar and dealt directly with the owner- the car has not been previously advertised. Inside and out, the condition of this car is outstanding in all respects. It comes newly main dealer serviced with Jaguar’s approved health-check completed. Finished in Artic White with Black Hide and Black Hood. Complete with special number plate which has been with the car since delivery, period Jaguar- Motorola car phone and very early Garmin navigation system.

Jaguar XJ6 3.2 Sport 1997 Reserved
Very last of line with the easily maintained and famously reliable six cylinder AJ16 engine. This is an outstanding example and every aspect of its condition is in superb order with very original bodywork and near faultless paintwork. The interior is pristine and bright work excellent . Supplied by us previously, there have been three owners from new and the car’s overall mileage is just 43,000 - 7,000 miles has been covered this year, so with a reliable track record, this will reassure a future owner who may wish to use the car daily or for longer distances. The colour scheme of Antigua Blue with Cream perforated Hide and contrasting Ebony Veneers is gorgeous and highly unusual. A very practical and useable Jaguar XJ in a pleasing specification.

Jaguar Sovereign V12 HE 1987 Reserved
Flagship Jaguar saloon of its day, the smoothest twelve cylinder and legendary handling combined with top of the range luxury fittings. Unlike many older cars which can disappoint, the driving experience with a properly maintained Series Three is superb even compared to modern luxury vehicles- in some respects it is superior. We sold this beautifully kept car 11 years ago and have just re-acquired it with a very well documented history and 64,000 miles. This has been absolutely cherished as the ‘concours’ original upholstery, carpeting and wood veneers support- it would be considered exceptional at a fraction of its age and mileage. Only the headlining has been replaced due to inevitable glue deterioration. The bodywork is exceptionally smart, chrome work almost unblemished- the mechanical side is very well sorted and underneath the body protection has been renewed which is a great, long term advantage. Finished in Solent Blue with Doeskin Hide.

Daimler Sovereign 4.2 1975 Reserved
An Edinburgh car all its life, we first purchased this Daimler four years ago from an owner who had  ‘known’ it  since brand new. An outstandingly original and unmolested example, a bare metal repaint was carried out sympathetically by ourselves to a commensurately high standard at that time only due to the inevitably age-faded metallic finish. Extreme car was taken to match finishes with the original door shuts and under- bonnet. With just 13,000 miles covered from new, we then sold the car on, by great coincidence to an Edinburgh based collector. Having just re- acquired the car directly, it has received very little use in the interim, so the mileage is now just 14,000 from new. As a Daimler, this has the attractive fluted chrome and wider seat pleating and as a 1975, it is pre- trim quality cut backs which the models received the following year. In the ‘right specification’ early, classic ‘chrome bumper’ XJ models becoming increasingly scarce, and this is certainly one of the very best in existence. It has the added advantage of being in a very sought after colour combination of Silver with Cinnamon Hide which looks as attractive today as it did in the 70’s.  For sale only to the right home where it will continue to be cherished and preserved.

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.

Daimler Sovereign 420 1968 Reserved
Height of luxury and refinement in the family of compact luxury saloons produced by Jaguar and Daimler in the 1960’s, the model retains the stylish curves of the era but offers driving quality which is closer to the XJ. This particular car was in the hands of the original family until twelve years ago and has had two owners since. There is a large history file with the car from day 1 and the mileage is just 33,000 since new. Recently stripped back to metal and repainted only due to a tired, original finish this is substantiated with photographs of the car before and in metal. Chrome is mainly original and lovely while the engine compartment is detailed and prepared for show. Apart from the nylon-cloth headlining which was replaced in 2005 due to sagging, and original the seats lightly re- coloured, the interior is completely original and lovely- woodwork, door panels and carpets look no different to how they did in 60’s. Likewise, the boot area, tools and original spare are out of a time capsule. The previous owner (since 2005) is a former principal of a Ford dealership and a knowledgeable enthusiast, so diligent maintenance has been applied and the car drives beautifully. Finished in Racing Green with Beige Hide, the most sought after combination.

Daimler 2.5 V8 1967 Reserved
First time on the market since delivery, we purchased this car directly from the original family. In 1975, the first owner bequeathed this cherished Daimler to his grandson who had accompanied him to the showroom to collect it brand new. For the subsequent six years the car was used regularly, but in 1981 a decision was made to preserve it for the family to keep. Accordingly, the Daimler was taken to ‘Harvey Hudson’, their local main dealer who stripped and repainted the vehicle only because the opalescent finish had dulled, and it remains resplendent to this day. The car was then used for high days and holidays until the owner moved and took the car with him to Devon. Intending to use it more often in retirement, the usage actually reduced and the car was stored when not in use, though always kept in running order by the local garage as invoices verify. Only due to another house move, the family have finally parted with the Daimler directly to us with just 36,000 miles covered since new. We have carried out substantial re- commissioning of perishables, road testing over 500 plus hundred miles, preparation of the engine bay to show condition, light and sympathetic rejuvenation of the very original interior, some remedial re- chroming, paintwork etc. Now the car is ready to be shown and enjoyed. Finished in Opalescent Light Blue with Navy Hide and optional power steering, this car also benefits from the later automatic gearbox and is pre- trim quality cuts- very last of the deep bumper cars in a dream specification. There is delightful portfolio of history with the car from the original invoice, warranty, service pack, bills, past MOT’s and a lovely letter from the family verifying the history. A unique opportunity.

Mercedes Benz SLK 200 Kompressor 2004 Reserved
Open top Mercedes motoring could hardly be better value with the beautifully finished mini- SL now fitting in to an attractive price range. Previous maintenance is key to future enjoyment and this car benefits from main dealer stamped service history since new and a low 38,000 miles in total. All aspects of the cosmetic condition are superb and this Mercedes presents as a much younger example with caring ownership clearly evident. There is the advantage of both hard and soft top motoring with the electric metal roof folding away for the open air experience. Finished in metallic Silver with Black Hide and Aluminium effect Dash, it is the classic combination.
