KWE’s Car of the Year 2015: Saloon from Scandinavia gets the full works

Last year, we worked on many amazing classic Jaguar cars, which makes it difficult to choose our favourites. However, we hold a particular soft spot for this project, and are extremely proud of the finished result – and its owner is delighted, too!

It’s not everyday that we receive a car from Norway, but it goes to show how much some Jaguar enthusiasts are willing to go to get a decent restoration. Our car of the year, an X305 with 6-litre V12 engine, was shipped from Norway with an extremely comprehensive restoration brief – we like a challenge!

As part of a full-scale restoration project, we conducted an expert evaluation for internal and external re-engineering perfection.

We fully stripped the vehicle, top to bottom, inside and out. Our expert engineers rebuilt the V12 6-litre engine, as well as suspension, braking and steering systems to ensure maximised driving pleasure.

We didn’t stop there, as all new leather interior was fitted, with Alcantara headlining and sun visors, complete with an audio system upgrade boasting seven loudspeakers and subwoofer in the boot. All interior and exterior lamps have been converted to LED types, with HID quad headlamps.

The car also had significant rust problems, which were addressed appropriately. The result has to be one of the most luxurious and powerful saloons on the road. The extraordinarily smooth and powerful V12 makes most modern cars feel inadequate.

The finished result!

The interior is now a soft and welcoming abode, with the seductive aroma of fresh leather. A true masterpiece both of Jaguar’s design and our restoration techniques.
