On the build: 'Driving should be a joy, not a chore.' When he issued this edict, Jaguar's founder Sir William Lyons set the tone for a spectacular dynasty of richly crafted but supremely functional Jaguar interiors, culminating in the '99 XJ and XK series. To call this sumptuous environment an 'interior' is a bit like calling the Ritz Hotel a furnished dwelling-place. On the cabin: Texture fans will appreciate the buttery leather... the lush carpeting, the handsomely figured (real) wood. Tradition doesn't have to exclude technology, either: electric driver's seat height adjustment, automatic climate control and an 8-speaker audio system with steering wheel-mounted controls are all standard fare. On reliability: When you buy a Jaguar, ownership expectations naturally run high. And yet the XJ series didn't just meet owners' expectations in this 114-vehicle survey, it exceeded them by a margin large enough to put the XJ series into third place, one of only two British cars in the survey's top 50. Clearly, the XJ series Jaguars are special automobiles. Offered here in maroon metallic over vanilla leather, is a 1999 Jaguar XJ8 Vanden Plas in extremely well-maintained, top-drawer condition (as befits a Jaguar!) The luxury sedan has had just one owner (verified by Carfax), and that individual has properly maintained the automobile over its 83,000 miles (just over 4,000 miles per-year on average). This sole owner experienced incidents in 2010, 2014, and 2020 which resulted in minor-to-moderate damage. In each instance the car was professionally repaired with no sign of the damage or repair remaining. The car's complete service history has been carefully documented. The exterior metallic maroon finish is flawless across every body panel on the entire car. The gloss is perfect without a ding, or even a hint of any sort of damage. Tasteful chrome touches-including the bespoke Jaguar grille, window surrounds, pouncing-cat hood emblem, door handles and exterior mirrors, understated body-side and rear-deck trim-displays a near-perfect shine, free of even minor signs of wear. Cabin glass and lighting lenses are clear and free of cracks or other wear indications. Five-spoke alloy wheels are mounted with GoodYear Assurance all-season tires. Inside, the car-true to the MotorSport description-this XJ8 ...immerses its occupants in a total environment of dreamlike luxury. Vanilla leather abounds, and in every case, the surface condition of the leather is undamaged and in near-perfect condition. In much the same way, the legendary Jaguar burled-wood trim, so tastefully fitted in the car, is without flaw. Gray plush carpeting graces the cabin floors. The dashboard features analog instruments (including a 170 mph speedometer) amid ample wood trim. All control systems function properly; all instrument markings are crisp and clear. The leather and wood-trimmed console is home to the automatic transmission shifter with a combination storage area and center armrest to the rear. Forward of the console are the entertainment system and HVAC controls. In characteristically British fas
