The X-Type, codenamed X400, was launched in 2001 to compete in the compact executive class dominated by the rear-wheel drive BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class despite Jaguar having no directly competitive platform. Instead, the X-Type used a modified version of the front-drive Ford CD132 platform shared with the contemporary Ford Mondeo with the addition of all-wheel drive and handling and steering engineered to minimise front-wheel drive torque-steer. Initially, the X-Type was available only with all wheel drive, using a centre differential with a default split of 60% torque to the rear wheels, 40% to the front wheels. Engines included either of two V6 petrol engines: 2.5 litre or 3.0 litre. In 2002, an entry level 2.1 litre V6 front wheel drive model was added. All three engines were available with either five- speed automatic or five-speed manual gearboxes.
This lovely example is presented in metallic blue with cream trim has covered a remarkably low 22,500 miles and has just three previous keepers, the first owner having the car until August 2020. This is an all-wheel drive example with the desirable 3.0 litre petrol engine and is described by our vendor as driving superbly having been garaged most of its life. Within the history file is a service booklet with eight service stamps, receipts and invoices verifying the mileage. An MoT test certificate until September 2022 and the cherished number are included in the sale and we are informed the car is only being sold purely due to loss of covered storage. This is an all wheel drive, low mileage example in stunning condition that combines practicality with Jaguars legendary reputation.
