XJS & XJ from KWE Cars

Car of the month: Jaguar XJS V12 coupé

Our Jaguar XJS restoration skills were fully utilised during one of our latest projects, which features as our ‘Car of the month’ for March 2016.

Fully restored Jaguar XJS V12 coupé

The new owner of this stunning example of a fully restored XJS V12 coupé requested that we first find and purchase the donor car.

We quickly found just the right car, agreed the scope of restoration with the client and got cracking.

We gave the car a full KWE suspension, brakes and steering renewal and upgrade to ensure a smooth ride and responsive handling. The engine was removed and given an intensive overhaul, along with the entire electrics. The headlamps were upgraded with HID Xenon fittings and a new stainless steel exhaust and overhauled fuel system fitted.

As well as an impressive exterior restoration, we ensured the interior looked better than new with luxurious new leather front seats with KWE-refurbished rears, dark ash wood veneers, and a top of the range audio system featuring iPod and USB connectivity, Bluetooth and JL audio speakers.

Resprayed in F-Type Rhodium Silver

To complete the restoration, we stripped the entire bodywork to bare metal and resprayed it using Jaguar F-Type Rhodium Silver metallic paint.

Judging by these detailed stage-by-stage project images, I’m sure you’ll agree with the owner that KWE has managed to complete yet another exemplary Jaguar XJS restoration project.
