This elegant Jaguar XJ Sport is finished in original Jaguar Cabernet Pearl Metallic, (Code CGE), which has a deep lustrous shine and is virtually flawless. All the factory panels are pin straight and damage free. Amazingly preserved, this example will stand up to even the most meticulous scrutiny and is truly commensurate with the exceptionally low mileage covered with nothing other than very light markings visible upon close scrutiny. All trim sections, chrome and rubbers are well preserved and the Jaguar rear badge has slight delamination. Still sporting the Jaguar supplying main dealer rear window sticker, this example is unspoilt. Graceful, sleek and with a low slung stance, this car is truly beautiful.

A sumptuous, luxurious and essentially perfect interior is thoroughly commensurate with the incredibly low mileage this car has covered. The spotless upholstery is trimmed in premium Oatmeal Leather, (Code AGD) and is the epitome of comfort and lavishness. The precision-fit facia surrounded in Burr Walnut veneer is perfect, as is the often-troublesome headlining. The driver has no shortage of equipment to assist pleasurable journeys all of which work perfectly, including the climate control and a factory optional Harman Kardon sound system. The deep pile carpeting retains its factory fresh fullness having been protected by Jaguar supplied carpet mats from new, including even a jaguar embossed boot mat! Beautifully preserved in every respect.

The AJ16 3.2 all aluminium 24V engine is designed and manufactured by Jaguar to produce 216bhp and 315Nm of torque. 0-60 is despatched in 8.9 seconds and a top speed of 139mph is possible. The engine bay is very clean and all factory plates and stickers are displayed. The electronically controlled, sealed-for-life five-speed automatic transmission is seamless and in harmony with the powerplant, it offers true Jaguar refinement and powerful capability.

The ornate 16in alloy wheels are in excellent condition with no kerb markings and only very light aging to the centre caps. All wheels are shod in Pirelli Cinturato P7 225/55 R16 tyres with plenty of tread and the original Pirelli spare housed in the immaculate boot area alongside the warning triangle and Jaguar first aid kit. The vacuum assisted four wheel disc brakes ventilated front and rear with ABS braking system and YAW control offers safe, rapid stopping power.

This Jaguar XJ Executive 3.2 (X300 model) was registered new on the 31st January 1997 by Jaguar Main Dealers, Woodford Jaguar of London. An amazing mere 25,828 miles has been covered in the hands of just two keepers, the previous who has owned the car since January 1999. A common trend with cars of such low mileage is that servicing is infrequent, however not in the case of this exceptional example with the original service book displaying 12 stamped entries from the supplying Main Dealer, Woodford Jaguar. The most recent stamped entry is at 24,582 miles. The Jaguar leather wallet contains all handbooks, guides and dealership point of sale literature including factory security data cards. The history file further consists of a neatly filed Jaguar folder with all MOT certificates dating back to the first in the year 2000 to fully verify the mileage. Two sets of keys with remote fobs and Jaguar leather key tags are present, as is the green master key.

Representing an original, unspoilt and fantastically preserved example of this modern classic Jaguar, it is sure to tempt the avid marque enthusiast and collector alike. Superbly engineered to create a fine motoring environment.

MOT September 2020, HPI Clear.
