Help please with paint colours

Recommended Posts

Can anybody advise me please.  I am looking at buying an XKR-S white badge car.  I have looked around  at several, and am getting confused with colours.  (i know, there are plenty other things to get confused about!) The white badge cars were satin silver, I understood.  However I am seeing them advertised as other silvers, eg Platinum.  The problem is that the V5 I have checked for one, just says "silver".   Were these cars made in other colours than the 4 special colours?

Welcome to the Club, Helina.

You should find the code for the car you are looking for on the offside door  --   it is on the s type. 

A good main dealer should be able to give you the exact information, and it should be on the DVLA records, which you can look up just by using the Registration number on the You Gov website.

Let us know how you get on.

Regards,

Peter.

PS I should have said the "Left Hand side door."

Thank you so much Peter.  The DVLA/Gov records just said Silver.  After a bit of research I discovered that you can ask Jaguar Heritage a "research question" on a car for £5.  I did this and they replied within a day with the exact colour from the build sheet.  It was Satin Silver, as I hoped, and we have now bought the car.   Yay!

I should probably add that we did take care with the actual condition and provenance of the car as well as the colour

The background on your profile pic looks familiar where was it taken?   Just curious.

Thanks.
