- Desirable 4.2 litre V8 Sport
- Comprehensive service history
The first XJ was launched in 1968 and the 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. With the introduction of the X308 generation in 1997 came a switch from the 'XJ6' nomenclature to 'XJ8', reflecting the fact that the X308 cars were powered by a new V8 engine. The exterior styling of the X308 was similar to its predecessor the X300, with minor refinements such as a change to oval indicator lenses and round fog lights.
This desirable 4.2 litre V8 Sport example is presented in the desirable colour combination of Georgian Silver with Charcoal Black leather interior and maple wood trim. Boasting a comprehensive service history including seven stamps, the most recent in July 2021 at 64,397 miles and included an air conditioning re-gas. The Sport specification includes, wood and leather steering wheel, 18" alloy wheels, Xenon headlamps with pressure wash, climate control, navigation system, parking sensors, electric heated front seats with memory and electric steering wheel adjustment. Accompanying the car is a history file containing the service booklet, a new MoT test certificate, the UK V5 registration document and various sundry invoices, we believe you would struggle find a cleaner example.
