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.
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.XJR-S restoration gallery

“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.
This car is highly specified by the owner and includes built-in satnav in bespoke centre console, bluetooth, advanced audio, parking sensors, automatic driving mirror and much, much more.
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!View the complete restoration gallery
