When car was purchased it had 55,295 on the clock, since I have owned this car for just under a year it has been driven 5000 miles. Rear carpet's protective sheets still in place since it was purchased by me in July 2018. I had it transported to me so as not to incur any extra mileage that could be done without. Large rubber mat to protect the boot carpet included. HPI cleared check done on 10/03/2018.
Lovingly kept and treasured. Priced to sell as cannot drive much due to recent operation therefore have limited mobility.
With an aluminium monocoque structure that brings outstanding weight savings compared to conventional steel cars, the new XJ is lighter than the outgoing model by up to 200kg. This brings marked improvements in fuel economy and emissions and also provides excellent safety and crash protection. In addition, the lighter vehicle weight allows for increased performance across the board and great agility.
Pioneering a new lightweight vehicle architecture that is centred on a conventional monocoque body structure rather than an unnecessarily exotic space-frame, Jaguar engineers have developed a car that is larger in every respect than the model it replaces and has more features and driver-assisting technologies – and yet weighs up to 200 kg less than the outgoing generation. Referring to a large saloon as a lightweight vehicle may seem incongruous, but the new XJ fully deserves – and earns – this label.
The benefits of a lightweight vehicle are in place all the time, from the moment the wheels start turning. In addition to measurables such as fuel economy, emissions and performance, the subjective issues of handling and ride also feature.
In the new XJ, Jaguar’s engineers have created a vehicle that is very agile. It is also quicker and more economical than the outgoing generation. Comparing the new entry model, the 3.0 litre XJ6, with the previous 3.2 litre XJ8 reveals that the new XJ is 0.3 seconds quicker from standstill to 60mph and almost 15% per cent more economical in the combined cycle. A more direct model for model comparison between XJRs shows that the new XJ is quicker to 60 mph (5.0 seconds versus 5.3 seconds) and yet returns average fuel economy in the combined cycle of 23.0 against 22.4 mpg. Top speed of both vehicles is the same electronically limited 155mph.
The bonnet and boot lid both use four-bar-link hinges equipped with gas-assisted struts, and gaps on these major closures are also extremely precise at 3.5 mm from bonnet to bumper and bootlid to bumper. Extensive use of lightweight components in key areas of the structure ensured the new XJ met the weight targets set by the engineering team. These areas include:
•Bake-hardened aluminium sheet metal pressings for the new XJ’s exterior panels, offering added resilience against dents and dings.
•High-pressure vacuum aluminium die castings for suspension and driveline component mounting points, which are both lightweight and highly resistant to bending and contribute to the precision and comfort of the XJ’s steering, ride and handling.
• Aluminium alloy extrusions, utilised in the door structures for high strength against potential aerodynamic wind noise and for enhanced security, are also found in the front and rear bumper beams and used for floor and roof reinforcements.
In addition, magnesium – as strong as aluminium but 30 per cent lighter again – is used for the new XJ’s seat frames and the cross-car beam that supports the dashboard, instrument panel and steering column.
The new electronic parking brake, which eliminates the need for a traditional handbrake lever and also features drive away release, is itself an elegant design detail. Situated just behind the J-gate transmission shift lever, the electronic ’switch’ frees additional space for the comfort of front-seat occupants.
The Series 3 Jaguars were becoming very dated in the late 1980s and it was time to move on with a more modern design and the XJ40 was the solution although both the S3 and XJ40 were sold alongside.....
This is arguably the finest example of this UK built short wheel base ,manual 4.2 with overdrive 56500 miles it spent it's life in locked up garage This car was completely
overhauled from bare metal.....
