For the Automobilist

You didn’t think we’d leave a car off our Christmas shopping guide, did you? Really. Just a short walk from South Kensington tube is an Aladdin’s cave of classic cars. We rubbed our lamp and out popped this classic Jaguar XK.

Why the Jaguar, when Jonathan Kaiser and his colleagues can sell you any manner of motoring marvels? Well, this is a London special and we think that the silver Jaguar, a machine improved and modified for 21st Century touring and events, is the perfect car for a getaway from the city to a post-Christmas holiday cottage in the English countryside.

With its countless small shops and boutiques, London is an ideal venue for Christmas shopping: but where can you find the really special and unusual gifts? Classic Driver is out and about in the Capital, and will be suggesting a new gift idea every day.
