NEXT XJ TO BE SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL TOO

We could see the company’s new flagship in 2019.

There are a lot of rumors surrounding the XJ, Jaguar’s flagship model. Some sources claim it will morph into an electric crossover, while others believe it will get the bullet because it persistently struggles to keep up with its German rivals. The answer lies somewhere in between.

“We’ve gone through a lot of debate on the XJ and come up with something quite special. I won’t say when it’s coming but it’s not next year,” Ian Callum, Jaguar’s design director, told British magazine Car in a recent interview.

He declined to go into more specific details. We still don’t know whether the XJ (pictured) will continue to offer powerful gasoline-burning engine and a traditional three-box body style. However, he noted the project is nearly signed off, meaning we’ll soon see test mules criss-crossing the globe.

Callum also talked about what the future holds for Jaguar in terms of electrification. The skateboard-like platform designed to underpin the upcoming I-Pace is modular, but he can’t see the brand building a sports car on it.

A VERY SPECIAL XK120 YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN LIKE THIS BEFORE …

You will see this extraordinary car in our new edition and find out why it is bristling with all of the added apparatus and elements.

I can tell you it raced at Bathurst and other tracks in the early 1950s when this image was taken by its owner, and is the first XK120SE ever built!

It is being restored at the moment having had a very tough life after being passionately maintained by its first owner.

It is all in edition #190 where there are many more high quality colour shots of the car in various places and its full history dating back now over 65 years!

Oh yes, that is not mud on the tyres – it is gold paint.

It’s all in edition #190:

AFFORDABLE CLASSICS SELL WELL AT BARONS

Barons’ Christmas Classic Sale at Sandown Park (UK) saw a number of entries almost double estimate.

These included a 1964 Jaguar Mk 3.8 saloon, which achieved £41,800 (estimate £22,000-£28,000), and a 1994 Jaguar XJ-S 4.0 ‘facelift’ model that was bought for £11,000 (estimate £4,500-£6,000).

One hotly-contested lot was the ideal hot hatch – the 1989 Peugeot 205 1.9 GTI. With just one lady owner from new and only 21,000 miles on the clock, this sold for £26,620, racing past the £18,000-£22,000 estimate.

The Barons team doesn’t have much time to rest over Christmas – it’s already into taking consignments for the first sale of 2018, the Classic Winter Warmer at Sandown Park on February 27.
