Vehicle Description

1995 Jaguar XJR Sedan

Jaguar introduced a completely re-styled XJ-Series for 1994. The base model was powered by a new AJ16 4.0 liter engine which displaced 243ci and offered 245hp. A supercharged version, powering the XJR, brought power to 322hp. The XJ12 came equipped with an overhead-cam twelve-cylinder engine offering 313hp. Design of the X300 was directly affected by the Ford Motor Company's ownership of Jaguar (between 1990 and 2007).20 #fn20 According to Automotive News, this was evident in general "product development processes", more than the use of Ford components. However, the X300's traction control system was obtained from the Ford Mondeo, and it also featured a Nippondenso air conditioner purchased through Ford channels.

Gracing our hallowed halls is this Jaguar XJR from 1995. A nice 4-door sedan able to whisk any executive or person of importance to anywhere very quickly thanks in part to its 4.0 liter supercharged 6-cylinder coupled with a 4-speed automatic transmission, full leather interior and a gaggle of conveniences added in for extra giggles.

Exterior
The X300 keeps much of the same exterior styling as its predecessor, carrying its rounded four-headlamp bonnet, low roofline, sloping tail, and wrap-around rear light clusters. From the front, the various generations can be differentiated by the shape of the indicator lenses, (swooping classy lines on the Series III, squared off 80's styling on the XJ40). The front and rear bumpers were both changed along with the taillights which had aerodynamic lenses rather than traditional squared lenses. The grille surround and badging was slightly changed. The headlight fixtures also became more frenched into the fenders. All straight rust-free steel bathed in black basecoat clearcoat that is showing its age particularly on the flat horizontal surfaces, which are showing paint fading, cracking and crazing. Paint chips are present on the front bumper and are worn as a badge of courage from the miles logged. 17" alloy wheels are wrapped in like new blackwall Z rated rubber and keep the sports sedan motif flowing properly.

Interior
The X300 gave all the refinement and luxury touches an upgrade on the sport/luxury sedan interior front. Door trim and the design of the center console were also beautifully designed and are all covered with a mix of beige leather and plenty of shiny lacquered burl veneer. Leather covered buckets with age appropriate wear flank a center console which has curves aplenty and rises to the center of the dash and integrates seamlessly. In the center is control central with all the buttons you'll need to have every function and convenience work with the push of a button. We note the standard digital climate control, factory AM/FM/Cassette player and seat heater controls. Black Wilton carpeting floods the floors and above is a felted headliner with a sunroof cutout in the center.

Drivetrain
Under the hood, wedged in tightly and proudly announcing itself sits the 4.0L supercharged DOHC inline 6-cylinder making a tire shredding 322hp. On the back is a GM 4L80E 4-speed automatic transmission and a 3.27 final drive ratio rear axle. All clean under this hood.

Undercarriage
Some surface rust has erupted but it is a light coating and not on all parts. Otherwise, solid structural underpinnings, clean floor pans and a good exhaust system. Independent coil spring suspension on all 4 corners with new rear shocks replaces the seemingly problematic computer-controlled air suspension that formerly controlled ride height, suspension mode and rear self-leveling. Power 4-wheel disc brakes bring this luxury performer to a stop on a dime and will give you change.

Drive-Ability
She fired right up with a growl, and off to the test track where it did a cracking performance showing snappy acceleration, bias free panic stopping, and good handling. This car is ONE comfy cruiser which our consignor states loves to cruise at 70mph and also a raw horsepower bruiser which can be easily taken on any superhighway. No issues crept up during our cruise and it wasn't easy to relinquish the keys. Yes! It's that much fun!

A luxury sedan from across the pond, supercharged power and lots of leather and wood burl. Not perfect, but the perfect sports luxury sedan for you. Quite right, you're bloody well right!
