Independent Reviews

'If you own, or are in the market for, a Jaguar XK then this is one
book for you.'
Irish Vintage Scene

‘Nigel Thorley has probably forgotten more about Jaguars than the rest of us will ever know. Which made him ideal to write the latest Veloce Essential Buyer's Guide on all the XKs. It crams in everything from model variations to detailed problem areas and the viability of tackling a resto project into 64 A5 pages.'
Classic & Sports Car (UK)
