KWE Cars For Sale


The Jaguar XJS continues to increase in value rapidly from a slow start up to mid 2015, to a rate of 5 – 25% per year now. The big stars are the rare 6 litre convertibles, and the pre-HE (1975 – 1980) coupés. It would be fair to say that the XJS is ‘doing an E Type’, in other words becoming very sought-after as good examples disappear, and prices soar because of the investment potential. All examples of the XJS are rising in value, and it is not too late to grab one at a reasonable price; but a good un-restored example that cost, say, £5000 2 years ago will now be going for £8 – 10k now. We don’t see this trend changing for many years…

KWE is not primarily in the business of selling cars – we are an engineering firm – but we are sometimes asked by our clients to sell their KWE-engineered cars for them as they trust us to find the ‘right sort’ of buyer for their treasured classic. These will be cars we know well and can vouch for as being genuine. We do also sometimes buy good examples as they crop up, for re-sale or restoration.

Many clients ask KWE to buy a car on their behalf, either to drive or to restore, because we have the expertise to reject poor quality, over-sold examples. We charge a 10% + vat fee for this service which includes inspection, travelling and vehicle transport.**
