1998 Jaguar XJR

An outstanding, family-owned XJR with just 53,780 miles from new.


Purchased from TWR Jaguar Northampton in April 1998, our 2 previous owner XJ8 was passed from father to son-in-law then to the current owner who has owned it since December 2023. The chance to buy a BMW M3 E46 is the only reason the car has come up for sale. The service book shows thirteen stamps up to December 2023. There is a gap between 2015 (major service at Nene Jag Specialists including timing chain kit, waterpump and much more totaling £1,748 at 48,734 miles) so we have completed a recommission including:
Engine oil and air filter service
New spark plugs
Gearbox service
Coolant flush
New discs and pads all round and brake fluid
New Pirelli Cinturatos all round
Super-charger oil service
New Quicksilver stainless steel exhaust system professionally fitted
New headliner
Clear interior rear view mirror
The car is MOTed until June 2024 but a new test will come with the car. We have the original Sales Invoice sheet with the car showing a sale price of £52,314.36 with extras of metallic paint, full-size spare wheel, toolkit, warning triangle, CD autochanger, carpet mats and mud flap, all still present with the car.


Meteorite Silver metallic over black leather, leather steering wheel with reach and tilt and wood gearknob, 18 inch Penta alloys, electric wing mirrors and aerial, Burr walnut veneer, sports gearbox, auto lights, electric windows, power steering, electric mirrors, cruise control, air conditioning (cold) and electric front seats.


In outstanding rust-free condition throughout, with no dents or scratches on the paint finish, the alloys are perfect, the interior is beautiful with no rips, tears or marks and the black leather is beautiful with just a light patina to the front seats as befits its age and miles. The roof headlining is new. Under the car is clean, protected and rust-free. The common rust area around the front wheel arch/A pillar has been repaired to a high standard and protected. The engine bay is excellent as is the boot area and the spare wheel is unused and as-new. No rust anywhere! New Pirelli tyres all round. We also have some invoices and MOTs, book packs and books and two keys. Road tax is £345 per year.
