"I've bought 2 cars off Jesmond and Gloria at Waimak Classic Cars and both vehicles and my customer experience exceeded expectations. The cars were both as promised and the transactions were as smooth as could be possibly hoped for. Exceptional customer service is one of the hallmarks of your operation. Both purchases were done remotely - sight unseen, the first an outright purchase, the second a trade, but I was totally confident throughout the process given the pictorial overviews on the website and your obvious honesty and integrity and willingness to facilitate any independent mechanical/body inspections and in turn correct any faults found. I was not let down on either occasion and would not hesitate to buy another vehicle from you in similar regard. It was great to meet Jesmond and Gloria on a holiday down south and your hospitality in showing us around you classic car storage facility was much appreciated. I keenly look forward to catching up again sometime. Thanks again"Garry Butler, Auckland, New Zealand
They say cats have nine lives and quite appropriately, as it takes a long time for Jaguar coupes and convertibles to die.
Fueled by a 290 horsepower V8 and the spirit of its ancestors, the Jaguar XK8 (X100) was a new breed of Jaguar. The standard 290-hp 4.0-liter engine was Jaguar's first-ever V8 and only the fourth all-new engine in its history. It has impressive low-end torque and is a real hoot to drive with effortless acceleration, precise steering and a supple suspension.

At Waimak Classic Cars, our principal interest is to ensure the preservation of classic and vintage vehicles. Please remember that our vehicles are many years old, often with further previous owners. Many have been bought by us recently. We cannot know exactly what repairs or maintenance has been done although we do our best to obtain log books and copies of invoices of work done, when, and by whom.
Our descriptions are based on our own observations and knowledge and we look for the best examples we can find. Indicated mileages are based on the records showing with NZTA and / or the vehicle’s odometer reading. Because of the age of the vehicle, this can never be guaranteed. Our inspections are generally non-invasive. Our description is based on a visual inspection and on information supplied to us by third parties.
Any sale is on the condition that the purchaser relies on his/her own judgment and does not rely on our skill or judgment or on any representation made by us. This applies even if the Buyer has not inspected the vehicle before purchase. We strongly recommend that you have the vehicle inspected by an independent assessor qualified to comment on the particular vehicle’s condition. If you are unable to organise this, then this can be organised on your behalf, at your cost.
We are proud of our reputation. However, no older vehicle can be expected to be as reliable as a new one and so all our vehicles are sold on an as is where is basis. Mechanical breakdowns, electronic failures at inconvenient times and maintenance costs are part and parcel of the ownership of classic and vintage vehicles. Reliability is a combination of the particular vehicle, how it has been driven and maintained, and luck.
For more information about this vehicle, please contact us Monday to Friday between 9:00am and 6:00pm (New Zealand Standard Time) on +64 (0) 3 310-6485 / +64 (0) 274 990-020. Alternatively, you may email us at email@example.com anytime.
PLEASE NOTE: As Waimak Classic Cars is NOT a car yard dealer type of operation, we do not operate through fixed opening hours. Viewing is therefore STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY and A FEW DAYS NOTICE is always appreciated, as it is seldom possible for us to accommodate viewing on the same day of inquiry
