Introduced in September 1994, the restyled ‘X300’ was just about the final step in the evolution of Jaguar’s long-running XJ6 series. Its arrival marked a welcome return to the more fluid lines of the Series III XJ6, the angular appearance of the outgoing XJ40 having failed to meet with universal approval. Equally importantly, the enlarged boot could now accommodate the benchmark ‘two sets of golf clubs’ just like that of the original. Designated ‘AJ16’, two heavily revised six-cylinder 24-valve engines of 3.2 and 4.0 litres capacity replaced the previous AJ6 series, producing 200bhp and 246bhp respectively. The ‘old’ V12, already enlarged to 6.0 litres, continued in the XJ12 and Daimler Double Six models, though its V8 replacement was only just over the horizon.
We are very pleased to offer this stunning Executive version of the X300 model, powered by a silky smooth 3.2 in-line AJ6 engine. First delivered by Woodford Jaguar of London in early January 1997, the Jaguar has been exceptionally well cared for over the years. The service book contains 11 stamps in all, 10 of which were carried out at Jaguar dealers over the years, with the last service at 25,845 miles being undertaken by a specialist motor engineer.
Finished in Metallic Carnival Red with a grey leather interior, the paintwork gleams, the interior wood cappings and leather are similarly in super order. The car is said to drive extremely well, all electric adjustments work, and the air conditioning is ice-cold.
With just three owners from new, this is an exceptionally clean example of a highly usable modern classic Jaguar saloon. The Executive comes with a UK V5C, complete book pack, full set of keys, and a (as yet unused) toolkit.
