The first XJ was launched in 1968 and the designation has been used for successive Jaguar flagship models since then. The original model was the last Jaguar saloon to have had the input of Sir William Lyons, the company's founder. A number of incarnations of this extremely robust and admired saloon appeared over the years finishing up in September 1997 with the X300 saloon. The top of the range model in the line-up was the XJR. This model was the first car from the Coventry manufacturer to feature a supercharged 4.0 litre engine. The impact on sales for Jaguar was dramatic with the Midlands company enjoying one of the most successful sales periods in its history.

Originally registered on 18th November 1994 this Jaguar XJR is fitted with a manual gearbox and as such, is a very exciting car to drive. The 3980cc straight-six engine is a good reliable unit, however the supercharged version as this is, offers brisk performance by any standards. At the time of launch Jeremy Clarkson described the Jaguar XJR as the best car in the world to drive. Finished in metallic red with Oatmeal leather interior, this XJR comes with air conditioning, heated front seats and an electronically operated sunroof. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 5th April 2024, this Jaguar XJR is offered for sale without reserve.
