Chris Knowles - The Jaguar Reborn

  • Date
    16th January 2007
  • Place
    Chemistry Research Laboratory (CRL), South Parks Rd, Oxford, OX13TA


This meeting featured a talk by Chris Knowles of Knowles-Wilkins Engineering (KWE) Ltd. Chris is highly acclaimed for his rebuilt XJ and XJS cars. He explained why a rebuild is a viable, or even better, alternative to a new car.

KWE is an engineering based car company which remanufactures the Jaguar XJS and the Series 3XJ. The engines are fully reconditioned and the suspension is re-engineered to give modern handling while retaining the excellent ride. The result is a car of character with modern reliability and driveability, that bridges the gap between bespoke, fully restored classic cars and unrestored second hand vehicles.

There is a wide range of options (including LPG fuel) so each car is individual for each owner. KWE can either supply a car or modify your own one.
