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, it 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 features 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.
This superb example, imported from Japan, is presented in metallic British Racing Green with the desirable Oatmeal leather interior. The car is accompanied by some Japanese service history showing regular servicing which was done every two years from 2000 to 2016. This iconic luxury British saloon car comes with air conditioning and electric heated seats as standard. The car is powered by the smooth six cylinder 4.0 litre engine which offers effortless motoring and at no reserve this is a great deal of car for the money, considering the original purchase price.
