Jaguar XJS Top Gear : BBC’s James May featured our XJS

Jaguar XJS Top Gear: Clarkson and May JC-JM1Jaguar XJS Top Gear: BBC Top Gear featured our XJS on Sunday 13th June, and again on “Best of Top Gear” on 8th August!

Top Gear presenter and noted motoring journalist James May explained how KWE rebuild the XJS and improve its handling and performance. The Jaguar XJS is a popular car with the Top Gear team who recognise both its visual appeal and performance as one of the great sports tourers.

The car featured is an Arctic blue 5.3 litre V12 first manufactured by Jaguar in 1989 which has covered only 47000 miles since new. The car is still in the process of being re-engineered by KWE and will serve as the company’s K-S demonstrator.

We fully expect to be seen on the podium at every race!


KWE at Goodwood 2005

The Festival of Speed seemed quieter in the Exhibition areas this year, but we’re grateful for the many visitors to our stand and for their admiration of our cars!

305_1_GenView-1As usual, every visitor said they thought the Series 3 XJ was the best saloon Jaguar ever made – for looks inside and out.

Our Top Gear-featured XJS got a lot of attention and again there was general agreement that the model is destined to be a classic – possibly even outshining the E type! KWE, of course, sets out to make these excellent cars reliable and practical for renewed everyday use.
