2003 Murcielago. £85k

This is one of my favourite looking cars ever and it even looks like a bargain compared to the prices some in demand cars are going for these days (996 GT3s…..). Sure, the maintenance and fuel bills will be huge but if you can keep your miles down then at least they shouldn’t crop up too often….worth re-mortgaging the house or selling a kidney for! This one has been for sale for a while…… Link

YELLOW Coupe.6192 cc Petrol, Manual.

1978 Custom Nitrous V12 XJ. £22k

Wow, now I am not usually a fan of this sort of custom but this has been done to a very high standard and looks…..brilliantly sinister.  Not sure I would have the front to drive it and not sure I would part with £22k for it but no doubt it has cost more than this to achieve this sort of finish.  Very cool.

WE ARE ADVERTISING THIS AMAZING CAR ON BEHALF OF ITS CURRENT OWNER AND THE MAN THAT HAS SPENT OVER £22,000 FULLY RESTORING + IS WHOLLY RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING THIS CAR LOOK AS GOOD AS IT DOES.

Please only genuine interest as you will need to book a viewing of this car as its currently kept in his garage and has never seen the rain.

We have a full picture folder of the restoration work and comes with many many bills and reciepts and old Mot’s plus comes with the original handbooks from new and covered just 36,000 miles from new, AMAZING!!!!!

Modified with steel arches that were hand made, quaife racing diff, hand upholstered black and cream leather interior, 235/35/18 rear tyres and new, vibe sound system with sony headset.

Two nitrous oxide tanks both 20lb tanks, original vinal roof, full clifford remote alarm with remote engine starting, toch button entry.

Think you must be getting the idea, you really need to book a viewing and come see for yourself just how special this car is.

Show winner with photo’s and trophys, the owner has spent in excess of £22k on parts alone so at this price and with an insurance valuation of £30k this really is fantastic value for such a one off car.

1985 XJS V12. £3k

Surely these are currently under valued, especially with the way classic prices have been going over the last few years? I am showing my age here but this was the car, in the same colour (not the actual one..) used by The Saint (if you have no idea then google it, it was a tv programme). Looks like its been well looked after and you might be able to pick this up for £2,500? It’s advertised at c.£3k on “the bay”. Linky

1986 Jaguar XJS V12
This car has been my pride and joy for the past 7 years and sadly I’ve not had the chance to use it as often as I should.
Private plate – A19 GPP
The bodywork really is excellent with no rust.
The front and rear arches are perfect, the paint has an excellent shine.
The underside is very good and has been undersealed from new.
The interior is very good with the headlining being replaced around 2 years ago.
The wheels have been polished at great expense and really set it off, there is no curbing at all.
The engine starts first turn of the key and sounds very well, it has covered 105,000 miles. There is no a blow on the exhaust however.
The gearbox changes nicely.
I spent £2000 having the front and rear brakes refurbished a while back and a full service it now stops dead straight! A rarity with an XJS.
It has an expensive Clifford alarm.
There is the original folder and history, prior to me a Jaguar Enthusiast Club member owned it for 10 years.
I have not used it since last October and it has been sitting in my heated garage, (It has always been stored inside, by myself and the previous owner) there is no M.O.T or tax at present, the only thing I can see it needing is the exhaust blow, however it may pass with it.
I’m only selling as I am moving abroad but I won’t be giving it away, if It doesn’t make a fair price I will keep it and arrange storage.
These cars are very undervalued at the moment, it’s only a matter of time before they really shoot up in value.
If you are looking at this I’m sure you will know about them, any inspection is welcomed!
