Private Sale

I am selling my ultra rare Jaguar X Type 3.0 V6 AWD Arden model.  This is a genuine German Arden factory model with full Arden bodykit, stainless steel quad exhaust and special Arden alloys costing £1500.  I have seen only two other genuine Arden X Types for sale in the last twelve months - one made £8000 the other £9000.  This is an extremely rare car.

The car has full service history, stamped in the service book as follows:
02/09/04 11412m Jaguar Main Agent
26/04/05 20766m Jaguar Main Agent
16/09/05 31535m Jaguar Main Agent
31/01/06 37397m Jaguar Main Agent
27/07/06 50000m Jaguar Main Agent
30/03/07 61434m Jaguar Main Agent
24/11/08 68115m Jaguar Main Agent
13/11/09 70147m Jaguar Main Agent
06/12/10 73136m Jaguar Specialist
31/01/13 84569m Independent Garage
17/03/14 91206m Independent Garage
22/01/19 103296m Independent Garage
Mechanically the car is in excellent condition, as a result of the comprehensive service history.  There is a small Oil leak from the sump which is common to these V6 (2.5 and 3.0) engines and will simply require cleaning and replacement of the sump sealant (not a gasket).  The interior is in outstanding condition with no wear or damage whatsoever.  The wheels were fully professionally refurbished approximately twelve months ago.  The car drives superbly, as it should, with absolutely no known faults whatsoever.  It sounds amazing and is fast, responsive and the handling is superb.
As you will know if you know anything about X Type's the Achilles heel is the sills that often rot out completely - this car was no exception.  However, in April of this year I had the sills completely rebuilt.  This was carried out by a local renowned classic car restorers and involved complete removal of the inner and outer sills and part of the floor that was also corroded.  The new inner and outer sills were then hand crafted, wax injected and coated in Dynatrol to add corrosion protection.  This car is now 100% future-proofed.  This was a professional restoration, not just a patch-up of the sills, and cost £1700.  You will not find another Jaguar X Type in this condition.
X Type's are increasing in price with the 3.0 V6 AWD particularly popular.  The fact that this is a genuine factory Arden model makes it a sensible addition to any collection of modern classic cars.  If you want to check out the prices for Arden extras please see the Arden website - https://www.arden.de/en/ and https://www.arden.de/en/refinement/jaguar/x-type/ and https://shop.arden.de/en/collections/jaguar-x-type.
I can find no other genuine Arden X Type's for sale on the internet presently.
Only sensible offers will be entertained.  The car is sold as seen with no warranty implied or given.  Payment must be by bank transfer or cash and received on or before the date of collection of the vehicle.
