2000 XJ8 SWB 4.0 V8 - Barons Sandown Pk Tuesday 30th April 2019 For Sale by Auction
With the introduction of the X308 in 1997, came a name change to XJ8, as the cars were powered by a new V8 engine. The exterior styling was similar to the previous model, with minor refinements. The interior was updated to eliminate the instrument binnacle used on the X300, instead, three large gauges were set into recesses in the walnut-faced dashboard. The major mechanical change was the replacement of both of the old engines with new eight-cylinder AJ V8, in either 3.2 L or 4.0 L versions, with the 4.0 L also available in supercharged form in the XJR. All X308 models were supplied with a five or six speed automatic gearbox.
This Jaguar XJ8 is described by the vendor as a modern classic that’s affordable and rare, with only 67,000 miles, with the MOT mileage history checking out right back to 2005. On average the car has done approx. 3,700 miles a year, in fact this jaguar has been used on high days and holidays and hence only covering approx. 5,000 miles in the last 5 years. The colour is an extra order topaz gold metallic, which looks stunning with light tan soft full leather seats.
The body work looks great and is in nice condition, as is the interior with very good carpets, dashboard, door cards etc. The doors all shut with the Jaguar quality clonk which is nice, the carpet in the boot area is in good condition and there is a factory cd system fitted. The car has factory upgraded alloy wheels in nice condition plus the tyres are all fine.
The vehicle has just had a recent service and a new MOT which runs until 12/11/2019. This Jaguar has that luxury feeling when you drive it unlike the newer models, and all in all its a very nice vehicle. This is an affordable, useable modern classic, use it every day or lock it up and polish it once a month.
