The website, which is actively managed and often updated daily, has a 'Members’ Only' section with a library of technical articles and is ever-expanding.

The Club’s emphasis is very much on using our cars – the XK was designed to be driven!

Thus we have a wide range of events from runs to international tours,  from lunches to weekends, from track days to technical seminars. Many are free of charge or the cost is modest. Above all, we aim to give value for money. Some are organised by HQ, and some by our splendid volunteer Representatives around the UK, Europe, the USA, Australia and many other countries.

Editorial

Julie and I are just back from Paul Abadjian’s one-day event in Dorset, the first driving event we have done for a very long time, for obvious reasons. This event really reminded, and underlined, how very enjoyable driving days are. We have always promoted the use of our cars in this club. For many of us that is the real pleasure, not posing or polishing.
It also reinforced that there is an important social aspect to the club. As I have written many times, it was so good to see old friends again and make new ones. So many
friendships have been forged over the years, which has made ownership and
use of our cars even more special.

The event also illustrated just how important the role of Club Representative is...

Jaguar D-type

XKs in the News

The RM Sotheby’s Monterey sale on 12 August included a 1955 D-type carrying an estimate of $5,500,000-$7,000,000. One of 54 ‘production’ D-types built, chassis XKD530’s first owner was Kurt Lincoln. Not only was he a tennis player on Finland’s Davis Cup team, he raced the D-type in that country on road circuits and ice courses, and his daughter Nina later married Austrian racing driver Jochen Rindt.

 

Lincoln had previously raced C-types, so Jaguar assisted him with avoiding new-vehicle tariffs on the D-type by fitting a noticeably used steering wheel, worn pedals, and a discreetly tweaked odometer. In 1959, XKD530 returned to Jaguar for an overhaul before being sold in 1960 to its second owner, magazine publisher Olli Lyytikäinen...

Concluding the series by taking a look at some of the unique XK 120 hardtops that were built.

There are many examples of one-off or even home-made hardtops of varying quality and looks. It is impossible to list them all, which is reason to just (arbitrarily) pick a few which are interesting due to their design or pedigree…

Why Buy an XK?

Apart from the emotional aspects, there are a number of hard-headed reasons to buy a classic XK.

Reliability – there is no point in owning a classic car unless you can use and enjoy it, and do so with confidence it is not going to let you down. We have members who have clocked up 100,000 miles in 10 years, in some of the world’s toughest terrain, with no problems. All the XK mechanical components were used in the higher volume saloon cars (sedans) and many were proved at Le Mans. This makes the XKs different...
