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. 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.
This superb example of the XJ8 Executive is presented in stunning silver with a full cream leather interior. Upon an inspection of the service history from its time in Japan, we can ascertain that this has a good service history from 2002 until 2017, the car was serviced at regular intervals and comes with an Odometer Verification Certificate. Our vendor states “the car is a joy to drive” and this example has an MoT certificate until April 2021.
