As launched in 1994, the X300 range featured a choice of the 3.2-litre and 4-litre versions of the six cylinder engine, now in a modified form known as the AJ16, while the 6-litre V12 was also available. Most exciting however was the new supercharged version of the 4-litre, fitted to the XJR model. With a top speed of 155mph (250 km/h), it was just as fast as the 12 cylinder car, but had even more spectacular acceleration. As before there were basic XJ6 models, Sport versions and Sovereign models, as well as the traditional Daimlers. In 1995 long wheelbase models were added to the range.  The XJ8 in its various forms, including the Sport model, the Sovereign, the supercharged XJR and the luxurious Daimler, is true to Jaguar’s traditions and keeps the marque at the pinnacle of the global prestige car market.  Presented in light metallic blue with a matching leather/cloth interior, this stunning example is in truly excellent condition in all respects, having covered a mere 14,000 miles from new. The Jaguar is beautifully preserved, and with such a low recorded mileage is we feel a fantastic prospect for the enthusiast. The XJ8 will be offered with a UK V5, UK MoT certificate, copies of service invoices and the relevant owners books and manuals.
