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
