Classic Spirit Reborn

6 litre Convertible XJS from the US

6 litre XJS convertible receives the finest KWE re-engineering

We received this XJS just under a year ago, now after hundreds of man hours, this fine looking 6 litre convertible XJS has been completely restored.

We were all very excited about this unique project, the client wanted the car restored to a very high specification, keeping to the original, charismatic styling.

6 litre TWR XJR-S ’91

This genuine 6 litre TWR XJRS is very rare – and came to us from Estonia! We have rebuilt the suspension, and provided a little more comfort for the driver. The 4 speed ZF gearbox conversion has been replaced with the original 3 speed (only the Jaguar XJRS had the GM480LE 4 speed box) again for smoothness required by the owner. The 6 litre TWR engine has been fully rebuilt, and a late decision was to ditch the troublesome Zytek EFI and ignition system in favour of a KWE Omex modern system to provide more reliable and integrated DEM (digital engine management) and to avoid the difficulties of supporting the old Zytek system in both parts and setup knowledge – both in very short supply.

Jaguar XJS 3.6 Litre

Sam Barber chose a classic in his twenties, as soon as he could afford it.

He is the proud owner of this Jaguar XJS 3.6 litre and he is one of our most loyal and frequent customers.

“It’s cool to be young in an old car,” Sam comments.

Since 2009, KWE have been on an exciting journey with Sam and his car.

1989 TWR XJRS

Once belonging to Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones this car is now being fully restored.

In poor bodily shape this car will have a full body strip, shotblast and lots of welding – but then it has lots of history!

The current owner wants the original body repaired and prepared to last, with fully rebuilt engine and new interior. Not for the faint-hearted!
