About us


Born out of passion for vehicles of the past, Turner Classics is a family run car restoration & servicing workshop mainly specialising in classic Jaguars based in Ramsgate Kent. With a close knit highly skilled team of engineers and car body specialists working under one roof, and carrying out all procedures in house. All of Turner Classics work is carried out with a first class and personal service.

From full engine rebuilds to complete nut and bolt restorations to concours standards, our purpose built facilities allow our experienced work force to take full control on every aspect of a job. Feel free to call to arrange an appointment or to find out more information about the wealth of in house services we offer.


In 2019 we took our XK 140 on the  Round Britain Coastal Drive (RBCD), to raise money and awareness for Prostate Cancer UK. 

The previous year it was E-Types and we managed to complete the whole trip (3,600 miles) without any major dramas, although a few cars fell by the wayside with irreparable problems. 

This time, we completed the journey without too many problems – only a couple in the beginning. If you would like to read about our journey in the XK 140 please go to our facebook and instagram pages.

Of course a donation to our just-giving page would be very much appreciated,as this dreadful cancer takes a life every 40 minutes in the UK alone and we are always actively raising money and awareness as this charity is very close to our hearts.
