This Jaguar XJ8 Sovereign 4.0 V8 is truly one of the nicest examples available of this model. With a design of pure luxury, it’s no surprise it was once voted ‘The Most Beautiful Car in the World’. This example has only had 2 previous keepers (with one being Jaguar UK), 64,000 miles on the clock, and has a full Jaguar service history. It has unmarked alloys, full set of keys, fully operating A/C, and the beautiful interior is lined with beige leather and fawn piping. The sumptuous leather and wood make the car feel undeniably luxurious. The original Motorola car phone system still fitted into the arm rest is a subtle nod to 90s nostalgia. The 4.0 litre V8 engine is wonderfully refined on the road with irresistible power. Effortless performance, classic styling and sublime comfort make this a wonderful modern classic. This Jaguar XJ8 Sovereign is the epitome of Jaguar’s endline: grace, space and pace.
First off this car has spent sometome in Japan – dont be alarmed by this its actually a good thing because generally they were much more treasured and looked after than those that remained here, plus are much less prone to rust because of the climate. This car was manufactured in 1992 and spent sometime in Japan before being exported back to the UK. Clearly in Japan she was very much cherished and enjoyed the lack of rain. The Double Six is a fast car, as it should be with a six-litre, 313bhp V12 engine, and the power delivery is matched to an equally smooth automatic transmission.

To complement this added performance, the SLK also gets a freshened look with new body-color front and rear aprons, rocker panels, and door handles, as well as two-color taillamps. The cockpit offers handsome wood trim, power heated seats, telescoping steering wheel The 320 is a refined sportcars not an out and out racer – It’s a convertible when the weather’s good, a securely sealed two-seater coupe when it’s not, and an inviting choice for everyday driving, any day. But V-6 power, the SLK also rates a couple notches higher on the fun scale, as well. There are only about 550 of these cars currently registered on the road today and the appeal is certainly the manual gearbox The service history of this car is reasonable, with a stamp booked and we have just given a full service so she will be up to date […]
Porsche 968 Cabriolet – a rare and wonderful thing For a car that delivers not far short of minor supercar performance and handling, the 968’s build quality is outstanding too. Though it is fair to say the Cabrio is more of a cruiser. It’s instantly clear that all 968s were designed specifically as proper sportscars from the moment you settle into the driver’s seat. If you’re a fan of the marque you’ll know about the 968’s driver appeal, its reliability and ruggedness. It was voted by Performance Car magazine the best handling car 1993, so even then the 968 had a lot going for it. Nowadays its quite a rare sight on Britain’s roads, and coupled with the fact that it was only produced for three years, makes used examples less than commonplace. 968s have a 3.0-litre engine and rack and pinion power-assisted steering, is powered by the 944 S2’s 3.0-litre engine, but with variable valve timing to improve power, torque and fuel economy. Factor in super-responsive steering, old fashioned rear drive and a front-rear weight distribution that’s not far off 50:50, and you’re left with a car whose heart and soul is pure sportscar. Our 1993 model has a […]
