Imagine harnessing the power of a pack of muscular, quick, and powerful jaguars. That's what it will feel like when you grip the wheel and step on the gas of this beautiful British Racing Green 2000 Jaguar XJ8 with heated seats and an amazingly low 46,110 miles. Jaguars are sought after because of their distinguished British elegance. You can be the happy owner of one of the Jaguar family's finest automobiles. With its emphasis on luxurious comfort, you'll be driving a real gem. From the robust 4.0L 290 hp V8 engine to the 5-speed automatic transmission, this Jaguar is ready to take you anywhere you want to go. The combination of luxury and performance all come together in one elegant package. And it doesn't hurt to remind you that there are just 46,110 miles on this car! That's a hard find! Before you look at all the pictures listed below, let me describe what you are about to feast your eyes upon:
EXTERIOR: Radiance? Shine? Class? Yes, these three features comes together nicely as you gaze at this beautiful BRITISH RACING GREEN finish that is just the right color for this car. The paint is shiny and glistening with no dings or dents or major scratches to speak of. The styling of the automobile is spectacular and is certainly a step up from the previous body style. The shape is in keeping with the distinct look that Jaguar has come to be known for. Let's talk about the engine again. With a 4.0L V8 engine getting 290 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque your car roars to life with just a tap of the gas pedal. What's also amazing about the XJ8 is that despite the awesome power, the gas mileage is rated as 24 highway MPG! That's quite amazing. The auto-on and -off headlights are in great working condition and will help you see in the night just like an adept cat. There are also rain-sensing variable windshield wipers for when inclement weather hits. The 16" alloy wheels are in very good shape and nicely compliment the tires which are in good condition. The look is completed with the "leaper" Jaguar hood ornament pouncing into life right at the front of the hood.
INTERIOR: As you look down through the power moonroof, you'll notice the interior atmosphere is very classy decked in CASHMERE upholstery. When your passengers take to either the front or rear seats, they will know that they are not just riding in any car, but they are in a world class automobile that sets the standard for luxury and class. The leather seats feel like new and are very comfortable. The carpets, headliner, and seats are all in great condition. The multi-adjustable power front seats are very comfortable and perfect not only for trips but also supportive for "sporty" driving. At the heart of the car is the Jaguar premium audio system. With it you can enjoy listening to your favorite music whether over the AM/FM stereo, cassette deck, or the trunk-mounted CD changer. Your new Jag includes the following features to make your ride comfortable and pleasurable: keyless entry, power seats, memory driver seat, rear A/C vents, cup holders, cruise control, and power tilt steering column! Your Jaguar XJ8 includes factory mats, books, and one key and remote.
Please keep in mind that while all of our cars are in great condition, they are used and may show some minor signs of wear. You will enjoy driving this car and you will also be proud of yourself for the wise choice you made in purchasing a pre-owned vehicle. Consider that the 2000 Jaguar XJ8 had an original sticker price of close to $60,000 plus options. You can feel confident in knowing that you're buying a great car and if you'd like a panel-by-panel inspection of the car we'd be happy to do it for you over the phone at 561-714-3679. It's time to feel the power of your stunning new 2000 Jaguar XJ8!

This Vanden Plas is remarkable with options that otherwise are only seen in
quarter million dollar cars such as Rolls Royce or Bentley.
It is a very clean vehicle and in mint condition.
The Sapphire Blue is in excellent condition. Please note the clear
headlights, which means that this vehicle was garaged, as they usually get
yellowish tint from sun exposure.
The interior Ivory trim is in excellent condition showing better than
average wear condition.
It is a very luxurious and comfortable vehicle. Front and rear legroom are
in a class of its own in this Jaguar. Attention to details include Wood

the last 2 days and it is a pleasure. It feels like you got the king of the
road status. It is very luxurious, comfortable and quiet. The engine is
powerful and responsive. Unlike other vehicles in inventory, my kids fight
to see who actually gets to sit in the back.
This vehicle passed inspection and found to be in excellent mechanical
condition. The transmission was recently overhauled so this Jaguar is good
to go for many more years.
All power and electrical systems work great including power seats, power
mirrors, power sunroof.

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

1998 Jaguar XJ8 L
This has a 4.0L V8 making 290 HP while paired to a 5 Speed auto.
These are classy looking cars but they were quite problematic with their
engines & the interior quality isn't so good at all. Lots cheap plastics
that creak & break. Lots of parts inside that overtime break apart.
They only look decent on the outside and thats about it.
