We are delighted to offer for sale this superb example of the XJ8 Sport in Light Blue Metallic with Beige Leather interior, having covered only 55,389 miles from new, this luxurious saloon is fitted with air conditioning, heated electric seats, cruise control, rear parking sensors and a wood and leather steering wheel.
A wonderful family saloon, exuding luxury with leather and walnut in abundance, this Jaguar provides the perfect interior for those hankering for quiet and smooth transportation with a touch of style.
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 companies founder. With the introduction of the X308 generation in 1997 came a switch from the 'XJ6' nomenclature to the '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. The major mechanical change was the replacement of both the inline-six and V12 engines with new eight-cylinder V8 in either 3.2 litre or 4.0 litre versions and all were automatic.
