This outstanding Suzuki Jimny has covered a genuine 1,514 miles from new with just two owners, the first until 2022, and presents in amazing factory original condition. Finished in shiny Silky Silver Metallic, (Code Z2S), the flawless finish is commensurate with the mileage covered by an average car in the space of just a few weeks! All bodywork panels are arrow straight and the spotless underside has a thin layer of preservation wax. All trim sections are as new and supplying Suzuki main dealer number plates and tax disc holder remain. Even factory labels to the underneath of the door mirrors have survived, usually gone after the first few washes! This is an exceptional collector’s example.
An interior which can justifiably be described as brand new! The snazzy cloth seat trim fabric, (Code GR), is in perfect condition with no wear whatsoever, as are the door cards, carpets and headlining. The first owner specified optional seat covers which have kept the seats as new. The fascia is perfect and all controls and switches have a new car feel to compliment the new car smell! The high driving position of this lifestyle vehicle will suit the tastes of those used to SUV’s but with pure fun of driving replacing the bulkiness of many a car today. This interior is simply astonishing in every respect.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Welcome to the experience of driving a virtually new Suzuki Jimny! The chain driven M13A DOHC displaces 1328cc and produces 80.5bhp and 110Nm of torque. The switchable Drive-Action four-wheel drive system together with the short wheel base, chunky tyres and 190mm ground clearance make this a formidable off-roader willing to embarrass many a SUV of far more cost, not that this example has seen as much as a puddle! The engine bay is spotlessly clean with factory plates, PDI dabs and stickers all present and undamaged. The sturdy 5-speed manual gearbox provides light and precise gear changes.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
This exceptional Jimny has factory fitted 15” steel wheels which are unrestored and in near perfect order with only a few minuscule markings carefully touched in. To the delight of those seeking total originality, the factory fitted Bridgestone Dueller H/T 205/70 R15 tyres remain fitted all round including the full-size spare which is unused and still displaying colour banding and tyre nobbles. The servo assisted braking system is factory standard and with just 1,514 miles usage the discs, callipers and back plates and rear drums are super clean.
Supplied new by Main Dealer, Lincoln Suzuki, the car was registered on the 13th August 2003. The first owner used the car as a second vehicle in retirement but mostly kept it garaged due to poor health meaning he would not use it. In 2010 the car was no longer being used whereby it remained in the garage until in 2022 and following the owners passing the car was discovered. Despite the low mileage there are seven stamped entries in the original service booklet with the most recent being in August 2022 at 979 miles which entailed a full program of recommissioning including a major service with all oils, fluids and filters replaced as well as a full safety inspection. In 2022 the car was sold by KGF Classic Cars to Mr and Mrs Halsall who were speechless at the condition upon delivery. Intending on keeping the car long term, the new owners added various Suzuki approved accessories to include a roof luggage module, tailgate ladder, stone deflector, Hella Comet 500 spot lamps and Alko tow bar with electric socket. All accessories are carefully fitted with the protection pads and no drilling to the bodywork should they wish to be removed without trace. The car has coved approximately 500 miles with its new owners and the accessories unused due to Mr Halsall fallen victim to a hit and run driver whilst riding his bicycle. He now struggles to drive a manual car and so the heart wrenching decision to sell has been made.
The original Suzuki document wallet houses all handbooks, guides and dealership literature as well as two sets of keys with code tags and dealer fobs. A separate history folder contains recent service documentation along with Jimny range sales and accessories brochures. Preserved to the highest original order and as close to a new 2003 Jimny as you are ever likely to find, truly outstanding and so much so that Suzuki had to remake it!
