Jaguar XJR for sale

Featuring classic Jaguar styling (before the "modern" Jaguar era), the XJ (code name X308) has that slim-line long bonnet/long boot look that gains a particularly hunkering stance when riding on big alloy wheels. Powering this large slab of luxury is a supercharged 4.0L V8 engine that delivers 267kW and 505Nm of torque. It is mated with a 5-speed automatic transmission, driving the rear wheels. This car has performance that belies its stately looks - it can accelerate to 100kph in around 5.5 seconds!

Creative Rides


So, while there is serious performance "under foot", the XJR's other (equal) talent is luxury and comfort. The cabin is old-school Jaguar - luxurious wood fittings and cream leather upholstery.

This particular example is in excellent condition and has just below 120 000km on the odo.
