I love the Jaguar XJS – it’s a symbol of 70s excess that’s improved with age. But having heard the horror stories about build-quality (and not being a mechanic), I could never buy one. So it’s interesting to learn that a company called Knowles-Wilkins Engineering is offering to strip down the old, unreliable XJS and offer you a dream machine in return.
Want to know more? Check out this feature from Top Gear, where James May goes through the faults – and shows what the improved version can do. if you want one, you can visit the Knowles-Wilkins website. But there’s a catch – a renovated model will cost up to £35.000.
