Introduction

Glyn Parry
Professional Consigner

This car is in impeccable condition. The new owner does not have to worry about a single thing.

Glyn, our consigner, had a great time meeting with Brenda and capturing this Jaguar XK that looks almost like new: from the paint to the interior, and the super clean engine bay.

This car is truly a wonder to drive and provides you with luxurious features that you would be challenged to find in anything else like it at this price range. Not to forget, this car has been used sparingly from new, hence the low miles and excellent condition, as well as the full history file the car has with the same dealership that originally sold the car to Brenda's husband.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Glyn after meeting Brenda the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

Brenda's husband bought the car back in 2006, she instantly fell in love with the style, sound and responsiveness.

Yes, that's right, Brenda is the original owner of the vehicle having bought the car from new at Guy Salmon Jaguar, Coventry. Since then, she and her husband have used their Jaguar sparingly for a thrilling drive on beautiful sunny days, and have kept it in immaculate condition.

Watch the 'Meet the Owner' vide: you can clearly tell her passion for a car she has owned for 14 years, as well as the care she has given to maintaining such a fine example.

The XK has been maintained by the main dealership the car was sold from, with a wealth of paperwork and service history. She is looking to sell as it is a secondary car that she's no longer using.

Exterior

Inspired by the iconic E-Type, this example has been cared for by Brenda from new.

Wheels and Tyres

Like the rest of the car, the wheels are in great condition. As of May 2020, both N/S wheels have been straightened.

The standard 10-spoke wheels sit proudly shrouded in Dunlop SP tyres, with lots of tread left for miles to come. There is some kerbing on two wheels that can be seen in the photos. The brake discs and callipers also look immaculate; credit to the Jaguar mechanics and Brenda for maintaining them.

Bodywork

Looking as if it was assembled yesterday.

There are no dents or accident damage across the car. We cannot stress enough how much this car has been cared for by Brenda as it really looks as if it hasn't been driven.

Paint

Set in the colour Slate, you can see in the videos how shiny the car is!

The paint finish and colour is even across the entire car, just as you'd expect. Watch the video to see the detail.

Glass and Trim

Both in fantastic condition with no issues.

Interior

We cannot stress enough how clean this car is; it's a credit to Brenda who has kept the full leather interior looking like new.

Seats and Carpets

Has this car even been used? The driving position is a delight and excites many passionate drivers like Brenda.

The Ivory leather seats are clean and plump, and are a delight to sit in. Please look at the photos and the 'Interior Review' video to see the excellent condition for yourself.

Dashboard

Clean, tidy, and ergonomically set up for driving pleasure.

A touchscreen satellite navigation unit is the main focus of the centre console, leaving it uncluttered by buttons. It is finished in aluminium trim.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

The steering wheel features simple and intuitive switches for the cruise control and stereo. The automatic gear stick finishes off the highly refined, modern interior.

Mechanics

The XK is easy to drive quickly thanks to the weight-saving aluminium body.

Engine and Gearbox

With a 4.2L V8, the sound produced by this machine is wonderful.

300hp created by the engine provides the excellent pulling power you would expect. The automatic gearbox is a lovely 6-speed piece that also allows for manual changes via the paddles behind the steering wheel.

Suspension and Brakes

All work that needed doing to these has been commissioned by Brenda, undertaken by the Jaguar main dealer that supplied the car to her when it was new.

The weight-saving aluminium body sits on the monocoque aluminium chassis that provides a firm feel when driving. The brakes are also very responsive.

The Drive

The agile coupe turns in neatly and the long-travel accelerator pedal can be used to feed in power smoothly.

Electronic safety systems are ready to prevent any bad behaviour, although there are two other settings - one with a later intervention from the electronics, aimed at more experienced high-performance drivers and another with the stability and traction systems switched off.

Electrics and Other

All electrics are working, having been assured by excellent care during Brenda's ownership.

A touchscreen satellite navigation system minimises the need for extra buttons, and is complemented by controls on the steering wheel to control entertainment and driving options.

History and Paperwork

Being the first & only owner, Brenda has kept the car in immaculate condition. The history file really is almost uniquely impressive.

Purchased and serviced by Guy Salmon in Coventry, the car looks spotless from top to bottom. Brenda's Jaguar boasts the following options:

Heated front windscreen, ivory leather trim, 19" Caerlia alloys, active front lights, aluminium dashboard, auto air conditioning, front parking aid and keyless entry.

Hi is there an invoice to show that the touch screen has been replaced, expensive fix as Guy Salmon quoted £1645 to repair.

Hi there, how often has this (beautiful) car been taken out over the last few years and for what kind of driving? For example 1 or 2 longer trips per year along motorways etc or several smaller to the shops throughout the year? And what kind of driving – often extremely low mileage cars have seals and other rubber and plastic parts which deteriorate and will only manifest issues once the car is started to be used more frequently. Same with the gearbox – if it’s been used primarily for first, second and third gear instead of the whole range… Read more »

Hi Kulrah, would it be possible to view the vehicle as l live just outside Warwick. Regards

Hi kulrah, thanks for your speedy response. The air con problem is a common issue with early XK’s. Jaguar main dealers were given a max charge for such a minor job, but still not cheap as you can imagine with taking the whole dash requiring removal. Well documented on Jaguar forums. Regards.

Hi again, why did both nearside wheels require straightening?? in May this year by Guy Salmon? If buckled, surely they should of replaced them?

Kulraj Salh

Hi Martin, the wheel is something we recommended the seller got fixed before sale. It’s just been an advisory, and not noticeable to the sellers so they hadn’t actioned it before. Advisories of course do not have to be acted on. Hope that helps! Best, Kulraj

Hi there, could you please advise as to whether there are any air con problems with the Jaguar.. XK’s upto 2009 had a common problem with the drain from the air con plenum blocking up. To clear this pipe the whole of the dash has to come out as it’s not possible to clear it beneath the car as it’s obscured by the auto box. If there is a problem the passenger carpet becomes soaked. Regards.

Hi Martin, no errors in the air-conditioned flagged from the sellers but we will check. I have a feeling it is the kind of thing that the main dealer might have picked up too given that they recommended the screen was replaced etc, and the car has been back to them ever year.

Hi Kulraj as discussed service record and door card

Kulraj Salh
Admin

Hi Tony, Brenda has sent through photographs of the service book, 13 stamps in total – one every year. These have been added to the history section now so that you can see how it corresponds to the MOT mileage too. With regards the door card, a small scratch on the underside leather where something has caught in the door. Best, Kulraj

Hello. Does the touch screen still go blank or has this since been fixed? Thank you.

Kulraj Salh

Hi, the sellers have informed me that this was fixed when the fault was found, with a replacement screen. Best, Kulraj

Hello. Has the offside rear tyre been replaced as per the recent MOT advisory since in the “wheels and tyres” description above it states “lots of tread left for miles to come”? Thank you.

Kulraj Salh
Admin

Hi, the wheels and tyres are as pictured. The advisory was out edge only, and of course just an advisory, not an MOT failure. Best, Kulraj

Hi, Can you tell me if the touch screen has been replaced as per service inspection advice and how many actual services has the car had since new? Thank you.

Hi, the screen was replaced as per the inspection advice. With regards the servicing, all with Guy Salmon Jaguar, I will try and find the number out for you. Best, Kulraj

Can you tell me what the annual road tax is on the car. As it was registered in April 2006 it could be one of two amounts, thank you, Richard

Kulraj Salh

Hi Richard, the seller has informed me that road tax this year was £555. Best, Kulraj

Hi there, the description of the wheels state ‘ like the rest of the car the wheels are in excellent condition’ however on viewing the photos the front passenger side shows some serious kerbing and the rear passenger also shows some kerbing. Please advise if these have been repaired or as per photos (and not as described)
Also can you advise if the car has had any damage repair or paint work carried out.
Are there any oil / fluid leaks ?
Is it possible for you to post copy of last service invoice and MOT (advisories)
Regards
Ashley

Hi Ashley, apologies those were overlooked but we’ve updated the description now. The wheels are as pictured. With regards the MOT questions, I’ll follow up with details on email for those. Best, Kulraj
