Footnotes

  • Offered here is the last official car used by former Prime Minister, the late Baroness Thatcher, who held the United Kingdom's highest office of state from 1979 to 1990. She was the UK's first woman Prime Minister and its longest serving of the 20th Century.

    There were many official cars used by Margaret Thatcher during her time in office as Prime Minister and subsequently as ex-Prime Minster, but this Jaguar is the only official car used by her that can be substantiated. All of the previous official cars went through secure disposal and are no longer in existence. The Jaguar was loaned to Conservative Party leader David Cameron during the 2010 parliamentary election, and was seen on television screens around the world when Mr Cameron left Buckingham Palace on his way to 10 Downing Street following his audience with HM The Queen.

    'LX10 BZK' is an armoured XJ8 that was supplied directly by Jaguar Cars Limited to the Government Car and Despatch Agency (GCS). Powered by a 4.2-litre V8 engine driving via a six-speed automatic transmission, the car is finished in Liquid Silver with Charcoal-piped Ivory leather interior. The latter features an in-car telephone and a multimedia system including audio and a DVD player, with a video display screen in the rear of each front headrest. Additional armoured protection includes a titanium roof, ballistic steel armouring, under-floor Kevlar layer, and bullet-resistant boro-silicate glazing. The braking system features Alcon mono-block brake callipers (six-piston front, four-piston rear), high-performance brake pads, and ventilated discs, while the suspension incorporates specially strengthened Bilstein B46 dampers and bespoke high-strength silicon-alloy Eibach springs. Tyres are of the 'run flat' type.

    The current vendor purchased the ex-Thatcher Jaguar at a UK auction in 2016. Recently serviced at Lookers Jaguar, West London, the car currently displays a total of only some 22,700 miles on the odometer and is presented in commensurately excellent condition. Accompanying documentation consists of a Statement of Authenticity signed by the then Secretary of State, Patrick McLoughlin; a Jaguar XJ Armoured brochure; owner's wallet containing handbooks and service book (unstamped); MoT to September 2018; and a V5C Registration Certificate recording the previous keeper as GCS, 306 St James's Rd, London SE1.
