The Jaguar XJ was first launched as Jaguar’s modern, full-size luxury saloon in 1968 and soon became an iconic model and the global image of a Jaguar. It developed styling cues that had appeared on its predecessor, the MK X and evolved to keep up with the times, always looking timeless and elegant. Styling arguably struggled however in the late 80s and early 90s with the very boxy XJ40 before finally regaining the curves and lines of the original in the X300 and X308.
The X308, or as it’s better known, the XJ8 is the last of the steel bodied XJ’s and arguably the sleekest model produced with its low roofline and wide stance. Available only with V8s, from a 3.2 V8 to a 4.0 Supercharged variant, all had strong performance capability. Of the models available, the Jaguar XJ Sport is one of the rarest by far with just 1,106 examples ever produced. All European models were equipped with the 3.2 Litre V8 and featured different seat designs to regular XJ models as well as sports suspension, body-coloured grille and black window frames.
The car we offer to you today is a beautiful example of one of these rare XJ Sports which has only 38,000 miles on the clock with most other XJ’s having done well over 100,000 miles. It’s finished in the elegant colour combination of Aspen Green Metallic over Oatmeal Leather with Grey Stained Birdseye Maple wood. It also sits on optional 17-inch Celtic alloy wheels which vastly improve the look of the car over the standard Sport.
The list of attributes with this car only continues with the paperwork, it has its book-pack as well as plentiful factory literature and brochures. Most importantly of all, it has a comprehensive-service history, having benefitted from routine servicing throughout its life.
To find such a carefully maintained and such a low mileage Jaguar XJ8 is near enough unheard of, making this a truly rare opportunity, whether you’re looking for a comfortable, fast, practical daily driver or something to hold on to and put away, this is a magnificent car.
