April 2018 News Round Up

New Zealand built Series 2 XJ6 SLE


Welcome to the latest Xclusively Jaguar News Round Up!

This month’s cover picture features the New Zealand built Special Limited Edition (or SLE).

Brian Devlin, who has been researching these cars, supplied this picture and says it would appear that there were only 40 or so of these Series 2 XJ saloons built in 1978.

Obituary: Ian Headon


Beautiful, I am blown away xx Thankyou so much.

This is so touching.. my father didn’t shout about what he had or did .. He sat and listened and only commented if he was asked to.

I am incredibly proud of his accomplishments in all he did..

After the funeral Dee and we three, decided to have an after wake for those friends that were interested in dads collection. Most couldn’t believe what he had built himself from a young man to his latter years ..

I sat and smiled.. Dad would have been embarrassed..

That’s great, thank you

Tributes to Ian Headon

Dear Leticia,

It’s a fair time since we last exchanged words but I hope you are well. i am writing to congratulate you on the obituary you wrote for the late Ian Headon. He was one of the very first people from whom I sought advice when I bought my XJ220, advice which he gave with expertise, good humour and modesty. I never forgot this.

I have encountered a number of people through my ownership of the XJ220 whom I remember with affection and respect: Ian Kelsall and Gavin Jones at XJK, Paul Wadeley at Jaguar and Win Percy, via Facebook, to name a few. Along with Ian Headon they were, and are, people who enrich the life of others. You yourself were always very helpful for which my thanks. i was delighted to see the success that has attended your recent career.

Best Wishes, Tim Burton


Hi Letitia,

Very sad news about Ian Headon, I never met him but know of him and his cars. Congratulations on Esta-Jane’s new role- you must be very proud!

Hope all is well with you, keep up the good work!
