"Hi Gloria & Jesmond, I would just like to say a big thank you for the recent purchase of our classic car. Granted this vehicle was probably one of the lower priced vehicles in your extensive and stunning range of vehicles, you treated us just as well as I imagine as you treat anyone in your dealings. The way you conduct business and treat your clients & vehicles makes it a very memorable and wonderful experience. The passion you have for classic and “pure” vehicles is amazing - alongside your knowledge! We can see why you have long-standing clients and hope to continue to purchase from you ourselves in the future. Thank you both and thanks for finding us such a lovely car that makes us smile, it is a pleasure to drive"Neil & Maria Clarkson, Christchurch, New Zealand
Big Jaguar saloons used to have a wonderful raffish air to them, fine quality leathers and wood trim and the Jaguar XJ8 has taken the basic premise of previous generations and made massive steps forward in many key areas, not least of which is quality.
Although superficially similar to the outgoing XJ6 model, the XJ8 represented the thinking of a new generation of engineers at Jaguar's headquarters in Coventry.
The proportions of the car are wonderfully judged, leading to a Milanese panel of experts voting it 'The Most Beautiful Car In The World', surely a testament to its stylist, the late Geoff Lawson.
The X308 kept much of the same exterior styling as its predecessor, carrying its rounded four-headlamp bonnet, low roofline, sloping tail, and wrap-around rear light clusters and the Jaguar emblem now says all the right things about its driver.

There are XJ8's and there are XJ8's and this modern classic is one of the cleanest, tidiest XJ8's we've ever had.
Its in our opinion a simply outstanding, pampered, loved and cherished vehicle.
The target for the Jaguar XJ8 series, namely to remove all of the traditional excuses to buying British, has been achieved with considerable panache.
Drop in behind the wheel of an XJ8 and there's a palpable sense of occasion that's missing in its rivals. Behind the wheel you'll feel like a charmingly roguish bounder rather than a Junior Vice-President. As an ownership proposition, the XJ8 is leagues ahead of its predecessors and they're starting to command good prices. This example should make an elegant addition to any driveway or collection, and will only look better with age.
A good modern classic, that is not only just good value but a vehicle that will appreciate in time.
If you're after a good, trouble free example of one of these, then look no further and grab this one before its gone.
Car will be sold WOF'd and Registered if sold.
