The Jaguar XK (internal code X150), is a stunning 2+2 Grand Tourer that was first unveiled at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show and marked a new resurgence for Jaguar Cars in design, quality and craftsmanship. With the car being styled by Ian Callum, of Aston Martin DB7, Vanquish and DB9 fame, the new XK was a considerable step forward in comparison to the outgoing XK8 / XKR ('96-'06), its grill took styling cues from the Series 1 E-type and the car featured an all new aluminium chassis developed from the ALC Concept car, with a 4.2 litre (300bhp) V8 driving the rear wheels through a 6 speed ZF automatic transmission. In 2006 the XK Convertible was launched at the North American International Motorshow, featuring the same 2+2 configuration but now with a fully retractable electric roof, giving the car super sleek lines akin to the Aston Martin DB9, and offered effortless open top motoring, 0-60mph of 5.5 seconds and a top speed limited to 155mph.

Earlier this year (2018) I had the pleasure of doing business with Mark and Carl at Absolute Classic Cars (ACC) as they had an amazingly rare low mileage 1989 Porsche 911 SSE Coupe for sale, or as I have come to call her, 'The Mona Lisa'.
Knowing how rare this model is and seeing a few examples for sale at Porsche specialists / established classic dealers around the UK I took my time to see all the cars in market place and after visiting the ACC premises a few times, talking to them at length at how they would prepare the car, what they could do for me and getting a 'feel' for them and their business I knew Absolute Classic Cars were the right people.
In the weeks leading up to delivery I spoke with Mark on an almost daily basis; updates on the detailed Porsche specialist service they'd arranged, refurbishment of the Fuchs alloys to factory 'as new' condition, fitting new Continental tyres, refurbishment of the fan/housing, detailed wax-oil and so. When she was finally ready Mark and Carl delivered the car in person within their fully enclosed trailer and once unloaded, joining other classics in my collection they then covered her with a tailored car cover they arranged for me.
A few days after the delivery I was advised by my insurance company that due to the value of the car would need a Tracker fitted and on phoning Mark for some advise, he suggested that they might be able to help further. Less than 24hrs later they had arranged for an approved specialist to make the journey from Lincoln to my home (250 mile round trip) and I could rest easy knowing that everything was sorted.
As an classic car enthusiast, many years the senior of Mark and Carl, I have meet many dealers in my time and for the most they are just that, dealers. In approaching Mark and Carl at Absolute Classic Cars it is a real pleasure to have meet and dealt with two gents whose passion happens to be their business; their knowledge, enthusiasm, detailed professional approach sets them apart and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone considering a classic car purchase.
