Second-Hand Jaguar Garage In Bangkok
This cool little car repair shop in the backstreets of Bangkok focuses entirely on refurbishing old Jaguars. There were some classic models and some newer ones too from the 1970s onwards.
The owner explained that he gets the old cars shipped from the UK, repairs them and sells them on again in Thailand, Singapore and Japan.
If you’ve ever tried to buy a second-hand Jaguar in Bangkok you’ll know what a big markup there is on prices compared with the UK, where they were originally made.
Expect to pay a minimum of 500,000 Baht for a refurbished Jaguar XJ8 in Thailand. These iconic 1980s and 1990s models can be picked up in good condition in the UK for under £1,000.
Buying a decent Jaguar in Bangkok isn’t the easiest task unless you’re after a new car. But the owner of this repair shop knew his stuff and the man you want to talk to if you are thinking of buying.
