1999 Jaguar XJ8 (X308)
One lady owner and her husband since May 1999 showing just 45,000 miles from a deceased estate; unused and garaged for the last few years; new fuel pump for the sale
Supplied new by Barretts Jaguar Of Canterbury, Kent in April 1999 this X308 generation of XJ comes to us finished in dark blue with Oatmeal interior and grey dash.
Under the bonnet, we find the 3.2 litre AJ8 V8 petrol engine which develops 240bhp and 316NM of torque driving the rear wheels via five-speed ZF automatic transmission.
The car has been with our vendor since May 1999 when he bought it for his wife who sadly died in 2017 when the car transferred into his name. The XJ8 remained in his garage since then until 2019 when he opted to use it and MOT it (at 45,037 miles) covering just a handful of miles -he found it too big to park with ease, thus it returned to the garage where it remained, until being pulled out for the sale showing just 45,376 miles.
The car came to us turning, but not firing so we sent it to be looked at on behalf of the owner and a new fuel pump was duly fitted, the car returned now running. The last MOT expired in February 2020 and recorded five minor advisories relating to three worn tyres and two minor oil leaks.
There are some marks as pictured to the body, mostly bumper corner scuffs and we note the typical sag to the headlining inside.
The history file includes the V5C showing two former keepers (supplying dealer and wife), the owner’s pack and service book recording eight stamps inc. PDI, the last in March 2007 at 16,764 miles by Hatfields Jaguar main dealer.
On offer at No Reserve, this is an interesting opportunity to purchase a low mileage, low owner XJ8 with scope to make it into a very good example.
