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.

Originally registered on 28th October 2005 this exceptional Jaguar has only covered 10,543 miles from new. It was a chauffeur driven car for a CEO and as such, has been exceptionally well cared for. The black coachwork is unmarked as is the cream leather interior. These are very well appointed vehicles however this example benefits from having TV’s in the headrests, four-zone climate control and heated rear seats. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 6th February 2025 together with service history validating the mileage. These aluminium bodied Jaguars will surely become collectable, fantastic, unmarked examples such as this will certainly stand out from the rest. Consignor Stewart Banks.
