Jaguar XJ40 Sport 1993


Specifications


Description

Now here’s a hell of a lot of car for the money.

Launched in 1993 as a run out model for the final two years of XJ40 production, the S, or Sport, was designed to appeal to a younger demographic, ahead of the upcoming X300, which would have a Sport model as part of the standard line-up.

Indeed, the Sport was very much a precursor for the X300. Not only did it display a number of interior features that would appear on its successor, but it also featured a special ‘Sports Handling Pack’, which was effectively the suspension set-up that would underpin the XJ Sport models of the forthcoming X300, along with the same dashboard that would ultimately appear in its replacement.

The Sport, then, had a wonderful handling balance, exploiting the already excellent XJ40 chassis, but with slightly sharper steering inputs and a firmer, but no less cosseting ride. It was, from a driver’s perspective, the very best XJ40.

ABOUT THIS CAR

  • We’ll keep this one real simple, as there’s really nothing much to say about this classic, save that its LIKE NEW. It looks exactly like it did when left the showroom floor.
  • Sold By Archibalds in Christchurch, pretty much a one owner car from new, low miles – servicing records by Archibalds from new. Arguably, the best example in New Zealand.
  • Absolutely perfect in every respect and factory original, paint and all.
  • This car is not tidy or good – its concours – best you can get.

It has a bit of a cult following today, with its own register within the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club, and a reputation for being the most reliable among XJ40 variants, not to mention one of the more desirable.

TRANSPORT / SHIPPING CAN BE ORGANISED ON THIS VEHICLE ON BUYER'S BEHALF AT BUYERS COST.
