The traditional Jaguar XJ lines are instantly recognisable in this stunning X350 while the imposing styling of this Sport Premium model tell you that this is no sedate gentleman’s XJ! Finished in factory original Zircon Pearl Metallic, (Code JHV), all panels are pin straight and the finish is near flawless, uniform and close scrutiny will reveal nothing other than minuscule markings. All trim sections are pristine and the De-Chrome exterior pack, standard on the Sport Premium, allows just the right amount of chrome finishing to compliment the contemporary colour coded and gloss black styling. An XJR mesh grille is fitted with the original retained if preferred and the supplying Jaguar main dealer number plates and tax disc holder remain fitted. A truly beautiful example commensurate with the incredibly low mileage covered.

The sumptuous classic interior is trimmed in Dove Comfort Leather, (Code LHJ), with factory optional Grey Stained Birds Eye Maple veneer trim. From the beautifully finished interior styling to the to the soft leather upholstery, the attention to detail is stunning. Everything is spotlessly clean and virtually factory fresh with only very slight wear to the driver’s seat outer bolster. Jaguar carpet mats along with the rest of the luxurious interior including the headlining looks almost new thanks to the low mileage covered and pampered care. The high specification features all function perfectly including the climate control, electric memory functions and touch screen multimedia. This example is a very close new car experience and awaits those enjoying sheer automotive indulgence with classic pedigree and sporting prowess.

A formidable 4.2 litre V8 delivers powerful yet exceptionally smooth performance and produces 300bhp. A top speed of 155mph is electronically limited and 0-60 mph is despatched in just 6.3 seconds. The engine bay is pristine and exactly as it rolled off the production line with all factory plates and stickers in place. The six-speed automatic transmission with dynamic stability control and traction control offers seamless rapid changes and immediate kickdown. A perfect combination.

Factory optional and striking 19in cast alloy Custom Design wheels are unmarked with perfect growler centre caps and shod in matching 255/40 ZR19 tyres fitted brand new recently and virtually unused. The spare is the original Pirelli PZero item housed in the immaculate boot area with Jaguar protector mat and original Jaguar screen wash bottle! Large diameter all-wheel vented disc brakes with four channel anti-lock function and electronic park brake grip with force.

This Jaguar XJ8 4.2 Sport Premium (X350 model) was supplied direct from Jaguar Company Fleet headquarters in Rugby. In March 2006 and having covered just 7,000 miles, this example was supplied as a Jaguar Approved Used Car by Guy Salmon Jaguar in Thames Ditton to a Mr Gary Barker with an order form and sales invoice in the history file for £27,000. The car was kept in a heated garage alongside two other low mileage Jaguars and used only in dry conditions. After eight years of cherished ownership, the mantel was passed to his friend and fellow Jaguar enthusiast, Mr Kevin Hawkins, who has cared for the car fanatically since. Mr Hawkins affection for the marque is incredible and a write up about his car being part of the huge history file where he imparts his vast knowledge of all things Jaguar. The current mileage of just 29,432 miles is fully validated in the large history file comprising of the Jaguar leather wallet contains every handbook, guide and dealership point of sale literature including staff business cards. The stamped service book is present with the last service carried out at 27,330 miles. Two sets of keys with remote fobs and Jaguar leather key tags are present along with the master/valet key. A further large history folder contains many invoices and receipts as well all MOT certificates. A totally original, unspoilt and wonderfully preserved example of this modern classic Jaguar and representing incredible value.
