Jaguar's long-standing commitment to creating beautiful, contemporary, fast cars was reinforced once again with the unveiling of the special edition 400bhp XJR Portfolio. The Concept Eight was the first time that Jaguar had shown its new performance styling to the public and the reaction was so positive that many of its key design details, such as the eye-catching polished wheels, side power vents and Satin American Walnut trim, were soon to grace a special edition XJ produced for the USA and other key European and global markets. Both front and rear seats have variable heating and the driver's seat includes lumbar and cushion length power adjust with full memory function. To add to that unique performance feel, the XJR Portfolio also sports an aluminium J-gate gear lever surround and chrome and leather gear knob. The all-aluminium construction methods that Jaguar introduced with the latest generation XJ saloon in 2003 broke new ground in the volume automotive industry. Unlike other aluminium-bodied cars, the XJ family uses full stressed-skin monocoque construction including all the outer panels, is manufactured from aluminium. As a result, the XJR Portfolio is around 200kg lighter than before with significant benefits in performance, safety, economy and emissions performance. The XJR Portfolio's immense performance capabilities stem not just from its lightweight body but from its renowned 400bhp supercharged, 4.2 litre V8 engine. That excellent engine is matched by the superb six-speed ZF automatic transmission and gives an electronically limited maximum speed of 155mph and 0-60mph in exactly 5.0 seconds.

This very nice example is presented in Midnight Metallic with an ivory leather interior, pressed aluminium dash, gear console surround and door cappings and is one of the 100 limited edition cars produced for the UK market. It comes with previous V5C registration documents, Press kit, sales brochure, previous MoT test certificates and service history. There is also a Jaguar Heritage Certificate and the wheels (with Heritage wheel centres) have been refurbished which included powder coating. The car also comes with its original bookpack which is complete, one set of keys, one chauffeur key and a first aid kit. These are rare, quick saloons which provide luxury and speed at a fraction of the cost today from when it was first manufactured.
