Lot 331 - 1996 Daimler X300 Limousine by Eagle
|Odometer reading||61,000 miles|
|Result||Sold - £4,928|
The Jaguar XJ (X308) is an evolution of the outgoing X300 platform; the exterior styling is nearly identical between the two generations with the major change the introduction of Jaguar's AJ-V8 as the only available engine. The top-of-the-range Daimler marque also sold as the Vanden Plas model in certain markets and features softer suspension with all the available luxury features. Cosmetically identified by the traditional Daimler fluted radiator grille surround and fluted boot-lid plinth, the Daimler and Vanden Plas cars were also available with the supercharged engine otherwise found only in the Jaguar XJR.
This six-door, seven-seater limousine was used and cared for by Greens of London where it spent most of its life as a car for hire, frequenting many events and social shindigs. Having covered a mere 61,000 miles from new and well cared for whilst in service, not surprisingly, this example is in very good condition throughout. Offered with the center partition for privacy and with light blue half leather and black coachwork with chrome surrounds, we are told that any new buyer could possibly obtain the full history from Greens if required. An ideal opportunity for rental, hire or business use with relatively few miles for such a car and coloured sympathetically; we are sure this would represent significant value for a new owner.
