For Sale: 1999 Jaguar XJ8 in Lutz, Florida


Vehicle Description

Sit behind the wheel for one moment, and you'll never believe the price on this 2001 Jaguar XJ8 sedan. After all, it will feel like there is no way such a well cared for V8 luxury icon can possibly be this affordable.

Jaguar's reputation for smoothness, performance, and old-world luxury is earned honestly and this handsome sedan shows all of those virtues rather well. It's been properly maintained throughout its life, a fact demonstrated by the beautiful Topaz Metallic paint, which is all factory original. The finish is extremely nice and definitely demonstrates the superior quality you got for your money when you bought a top-of-the-line luxury car. The long, low Jaguar profile is instantly recognizable as the shape that built this icon. There are hints of chrome on the grille, trunk, and dual tailpipes that add a touch of class. Of course, it's the Jaguar leaper on the hood that tells everyone this comes from Britain's finest.

The oatmeal leather interior is where this Jag really shines. Natural materials abound: leather, wool, wood, all of which were finished to standards that only the craftsmen in Coventry seem to have mastered. It's beautifully preserved on this cherished future classic. The walnut wood used inside Jaguars is real, not some simulated plastic, and the plush carpets feel impossibly luxurious under your feet. The luxury continues with a long list of desirable features such as automatic climate control, power windows, power locks, cruise control, power seats, sunroof, AM/FM/cassette stereo, and power tilt wheel. Modern features not only mean superior luxury, but also modern safety. So you get the convenience of dual airbags and anti-lock brakes.

Under that leaper bonnet (hood) is a very tidy and original 4.0-liter fuel-injected V8. This motor is famous for combining the engineering talents of Ford with Jaguar's flair for driving passion. It purrs with buttery smoothness but can growl with the biggest cats when you plant your right foot. This luxury sedan was built to make your heart race like a sports car, and so the motor is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission (utilizing the iconic J-gate shifter.) The European engineered fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes means this executive sedan begs for the backroads.

This is an iconic XJ with a burly V8, low miles, and the kind careful ownership that makes it feel like a brand new luxury sedan. It's amazing you take it home for same price that's only the down payment for a new one. This kind of value means it will be leaving our dealership quickly. Call today!!!
