Jaguar Specialist

in Henley On Thames

Hofmanns is an independent specialist offering servicing and repairs for Jaguar cars. We are a family-run business founded in 1949 by Fred Hofmann in Henley-on-Thames, serving customers throughout Oxfordshire and Berkshire. Our workshop is within walking distance of the train station and town center, with easy access to the M4 and M40 motorways.

Fred Hofmann began his career with Bentley Motor Cars but soon expanded to include other prestigious British brands, including Jaguar. We have been servicing Jaguar cars for over 50 years and are known for our expertise in the iconic E-Type model. We were selected by the renowned Ecurie Ecosse as a partner to build their Jaguar-engined LM-C sports car.

In addition to classic Jaguar models, we are also well-versed in maintaining current Jaguar models. Our rates are more affordable than those of the main dealers, and we offer fixed menu pricing for the current range of Jaguar cars. If you own a cherished classic Jaguar, our experienced technicians have the knowledge to handle general maintenance and complete rebuilds. We use genuine Jaguar parts and equipment, backed by a 2-year warranty. Our technicians use Jaguar-specific oils and can digitally record all service details without affecting your manufacturer’s warranty.

Our comprehensive services include tires, brakes, clutch, crash repairs, and diagnostics for both classic and modern cars. Our technicians are skilled craftsmen who can perform complex repairs and even fabricate new parts.

For convenience, we offer collection and delivery services, as well as a fleet of modern courtesy cars. If you have a minor issue, we provide while-you-wait appointments with refreshments, and we also offer a complimentary wash and vacuum once the work is completed.
