September 1997 saw the X300 XJ revised for a final time, and this time the
car (known as X308) had changed more over the X300 than the X300 had done
over the XJ40. The exterior styling which won the award of "L'Automobile
piu Bella del Mondo" was mildly revised, the only real notable changes
being new, shallower grille, bumpers incorporating oval front indicators &
side reflectors with 1/4 chrome trims instead of the full width ones of the
X300, as well as revised clear indicator rear light clusters and the
fitting of revised headlamps with clear lenses and optic reflectors. The
CATS Computer Active Technology Suspension was also offered, which adapted
the stiffness of the dampers to optimise ride comfort or handling. The
passenger compartment was further strengthened by use of ultra high
strength boron steel and the high speed crash survivability was further
improved by incorporation of a unique "swans neck" design into the crumple
More obvious changes lay under the bonnet and inside. An all-new, and
hugely praised, V8 engine was introduced and was available in 3.2 L, 4.0 L
and 4.0 L supercharged versions. The new eight-cylinder engines, built in
Bridgend, Wales, not only saw the temporary end of six-cylinder and
twelve-cylinder power in an XJ, but the legendary XJ6 moniker was dropped
(but later re-introduced in the 2003.5 X350) the cars with naturally
aspirated engines were now called XJ8. The new performance figures were 290
bhp (216 kW; 294 PS) and 240 bhp (179 kW; 243 PS) for the naturally
aspirated 4.0 L and 3.2 L versions respectively and 370 bhp (276 kW; 375
PS) with 525 N·m (387 lb·ft) of torque for the supercharged version.
Later, it became evident that the V8 engine was poorly designed, due to its
use of Nikasil and a problem that would cause the car to stall when
driven at highway speeds. In April 2000, the Nikasil engines stopped
being fitted and cars from then until the end of the run have generally
proved very reliable.
Tthe supercharged Daimler, known as the Super V8 in the UK & the Vanden
Plas in the United States complete with fluted boot plynth & grille top, as
well as full "autolux" leather interior trimming, extra highly figured
walnut trim and rear picnic tables inside).
Although the new car was improved over the X300 and featured revised
dynamics (including an excellent ride) along with its excellent new V8
engines (designed solely by Jaguar's engineers), the basic design was now
12 years old and was launched less than a year before a new version of the
traditional heavyweight of the class: the Mercedes-Benz S-Class W220.
Although the XJ was considered by critics as still competitive in some
areas in many roadtests the X308 was essentially outclassed by the new
S-Class, a car which was proclaimed by critics to be the "best car in the
world" at launch. However, despite the Mercedes' plaudits it is important
to note that the Mark 2 XJ was the best-selling luxury car in the UK.
Indeed, some years later when the flagship Mercedes, Daimler and BMW were
compared in a used car analysis, the Daimler Super V8 came out on
Owners of the Daimler V8 include Queen Elizabeth II, her preference being
for more subtle luxury and driveability for her personal motoring, such as
to horse racing.
The XJR-version featured a five-speed automatic transmission W5A580 from
the Mercedes-Benz AMG E55 and other high power Benz models.
The final production run of the X308 series the XJR was in the 2003 model
The model continued until an all-new aluminium-bodied replacement (X350)
was unveiled in 2003.5

2006 Jaguar XJR Ebony T2648A
Your new Ebony 2006 Jaguar XJR with navigation, rear entertainment system,
parking sensors, front and rear heated seats, adaptive cruise control, and
satellite radiois an absolutely stunning automobile. From its powerful V8
engine to its beautiful leather interior, there's nothing to dislike about
this great car. Let's take a closer look.
EXTERIOR: The exterior of the XJR is covered in a lovely coat of EBONY
paint. This sleek color is elegant and nicely complements the shapely
features of the car. Stepping on the gas will prompt a roar from the beast
of an engine. Under the hood is a 4.2L supercharged 400 horsepower V8 engine with
413 lb-ft of torque. It is quick and responsive, to say the least, and
shifts seamlessly with its 6-speed automatic transmission. In the headlight
position of the car are Xenon HID headlamps with bright surround and power
wash that will help you see through any of the darkest nights and weather.
There are also front and rear fog lamps for when the weather conditions
really get thick. Rain-sensing automatic variable-intermittent windshield
wipers will come in handy when the clouds let loose. Helping add to the
sporty look of this coupe are sporty 19" wheels with tires in almost new
condition. With "R" badging on the trunk you will let others know that
you're not driving just any XJ series, but Jaguar's R model that is far
beyond the rest of the pack. This vehicle's previous owner took exquisite
care of the car and just a short while ago had all its services done,
including brakes and putting on brand new tires. You can rest assured that
your new Jaguar has no issues and is ready to hit the road. The cherry on
top is the Jaguar emblem on the hood reminding you and others that you are
driving pure elegance.
INTERIOR: Just as lovely and stylish as the outside of the car is the
inside. Decked in clean and beautiful DOVE upholstery, the inside is
comfortable and has no unpleasant odors. The "R" logo embossed power
3-stage heated driver and front passenger seats are in good shape and
feature 16- and 12-way adjustment (respectively). The driver's seat also
has power lumbar support, height adjustment, and adjustable bolsters.
Adding to refined look of the leather is Rich Oak woodgrain trim that flows
throughout the car and highlights the dash of the vehicle. The power tilt
and telescoping leather steering wheel will feel great in your hands and
has controls for audio, phone, memory, and cruise. Speaking of cruise
control, this vehicle is equipped with adaptive cruise control. Therefore,
once you set your speed, the car will cruise as normal until it approaches
a vehicle that is going slower than you. At that time, it will
automatically adjust the car's speed to match the other car until it has
moved and will then return to your originally set speed. It is a very nice
feature to have, especially for longer road trips. You and your passengers
will appreciate the automatic climate control so that everyone can be as
comfortable as possible. Your rear passengers also have heated seats to
assist with all-around comfort. One of the nicest features is the Jaguar
navigation system shown through a 7-inch touchscreen unit. With it, you
will have maps, points of interests, and turn-by-turn directions to help
you arrive easily at just about any destination. Everyone likes listening
to music on the radio. Jaguar has included a premium Alpine 320-watt stereo
system with 6-disc in-dash CD changer, AM/FM/Sirius stereo, and 12 speakers
for your listening pleasure. For further enjoyment, your rear passengers
will love the headrest mounted dual screen DVD entertainment system. The
system also features auxiliary inputs for other entertainment devices! With
the parking sensors, you will have audible alerts to what's around you as
you park so you can be sure to not bump into any hard-to-see objects. Some
other great features included are: power windows and locks, Bluetooth
connectivity, remote mechanical trunk release, locking illuminated
glovebox, integrated door pockets, front map lights, heated rear window,
and cup holders. Your 2006 Jaguar also comes with factory mats, books, and
two keys with built-in remote.
Our goal is to make sure the overall condition of the car is as close to
new as possible. This means a full detail that includes polishing any light
scratches and professionally touching up chips. All dings are
professionally removed. While our cars are close-to-new, keep in mind that
they are pre-owned and may show some signs of wear. We will be more than
happy to go over the car panel-by-panel with you on the phone for extra
details. Also, think of the great savings you will have with this purchase.
This outstanding car had a sticker price of over $85,000! Now you can save
a lot of money investing in this great pre-owned car. Own one of the most
stylish members of the automobile kingdom with this great 2006 Jaguar XJR!
