A full-on 21st-century Jaguar limousine complete with a true Jaguar 4-litre V8 engine designed and built by British engineers. This is a fully-loaded 280hp executive saloon with all the refinements that go with it – electric seats, electric headrests etc – being a top-of-the-range executive car.
The coachwork is striking, the arches are entirely free from any corrosion, and the rich burgundy paintwork does justice to the elegant Jaguar styling which gives the car great presence on the road. The driving experience is like floating on air, it’s a lovely drive, and there is absolutely nothing amiss with the drivechain whatsoever.
Masses of power when needed, timely automatic gearchanges, and suspension and braking to match such a powerful but executive car. The cream leather seats are not just good to look at, they are wonderful to relax into, and being that at launch very many were chauffeur-driven, there’s just as much space and comfort to be had as a rear passenger as in the front.
The massive boot space and overall condition of not only the boot but also the engine bay prove that this car has always been maintained to exacting standards.
The car has now covered 84,000 miles, nothing to worry about on a car of this pedigreee, ands as the images show, still in first-rate condition inside and out, and any test drive is sure to tick all the boxes. A magnificent piece of engineering in every way.
