The first Jaguar XJ was launched in 1968 and the XJ designation has been used for successive Jaguar flagship models ever since. The original model was the last Jaguar saloon to have had the input of Sir William Lyons, the company's founder. The Jaguar XJ (X300) was manufactured between 1994 and 1997 and was the first XJ produced entirely under Ford ownership and can be considered an evolution of the outgoing XJ40 generation. Like all previous XJ generations, it featured the Jaguar independent rear suspension arrangement with the design emphasis on improved build quality, improved reliability and a return to traditional Jaguar styling elements. The X300 was stylistically intended to evoke the image of the more curvaceous series XJ. The front of the car was redesigned significantly to return to four individual round headlamps that provided definition to the sculptured bonnet. Mechanically, it was similar to the XJ40 that it replaced. Six-cylinder X300s are powered by the AJ16 inline-six engine which is a further enhancement of the AJ6 engine that uses an electronic distributor-less ignition system.
First registered on 1st August, 1995, this XJ6 is described by the vendor as being "a delight to drive". The specification of this car includes automatic transmission, leather seats, cruise control, air conditioning and a wood/leather steering wheel. Finished in dark blue with oatmeal interior, supplied with a comprehensive Jaguar main agent service history up to 117,491 miles together with a V5 registration document and other bills and the correct owners pack, this is offered at no reserve and represents extraordinary value.
