This was mentioned as for sale on my main Jag thread, but the for sale bit is buried and it's not so obvious that the car is indeed for sale, hence I'm doing a separate thread here for clarity.

 

So what we have here is a 1995 Jaguar XJR6 4.0 Supercharged, which I named ELA when I ended up with two of these magnificent things by accident, so names were assigned to each. The colour is flamenco red and the interior cream leather with the all important black wood trim. 110 500 miles. MOT till 21/12/2019. New front brake discs and pads, new rear subframe bushes (big job), welding to O/S and N/S inner sill/floor, which was done properly by a pro. Lots of service history (lots of stamps and huge pile of receipts), not written off or anything like that (I have done a car history check) full book pack, two keys, original Jag mats (genuine Jag shag pile lambswool rugs optional if you are feeling crazy!), at least one working remote fob. The wheels have been refurbished at some point and they have had the diamond cutting redone, not just someone painting them. They look brilliant. Runs really well, links to videos below. Consumes fuel like a burning oil-rig, but that is quite normal. Expect 18-20 Mpg. Performance is ballistic, 326 bhp 512 N⋅m torque. It will bite if you provoke it so you have to be a little sensible especially on slippery roundabouts. Has a working CD multi-changer, electric seats, and functioning electric folding mirrors, which is a nice novelty.

 

Downsides are the usual clock having faded segments, pinned headlining, one front wing is going around the bottom edge (replacement in correct colour available). Overall it's very solid (I have had a very good poke underneath and the MOT in December was thorough) but rough around the edges. The odd dent here, the odd spot of lacquer peel (not much, a few small coin size pieces), Priced exactly in the middle of the market, much better than the broken ones at around £2000, but much cheaper than the white backdrop brigade.

 

The price is £2800 to shitter, on the open market you will see it at £3000.

 

This is not to be confused at all with the very similar looking V8 XJR X308. The XJR6 (X306) is a much more old school, thumping, wide-shouldered character, produced in small numbers, which to me at least has it's own charm. The V8 is smoother and easier to handle. The supercharged 6 takes more driving and the tech behind it is somewhat more simplistic and durable in many ways. It's a 4 speed auto (GM 400 series) and the engine is basically the 4.0 AJ16 with a Eaton M90 blower plonked on the side for a laugh. As a package the car is rather brilliant. Smooth, lovely to sit in, very fast, people like you for having one. I'm cheered up every time I drive it and not many cars do that. It is the original blower Jag. Drivetrian wise these things are very, very hardy and will last with basic servicing. I'm not starting a debate on whether one is better than the other. I think it is fair to say one may appeal more to some than the other, but the main point is that they are different.

 

Location, spitting distance of York.

Can you keep hold for a year. I've already started putting a few quid a week aside and reckon I'll be ready to collect about January 2020. Bloody lovely good luck for a quick sale!

This is exactly what I need to be driving to the south of France and back in in May.

I don't have any money though, so I'll have to use the Subaru instead. It will not be as comfortable!

Having already purchased a Jaaaag from this particular vendor, I am sure this thing will be spot on. Got too much going on at the moment otherwise I'd be sorely tempted to sell it to part fund buying this! If only it was 6 months down the line. Good luck with the sale sir

3 years ago It was toss up between a Jaguar Super V8 and a Maserati , unfortunately heart won and I went for the Maserati, 2 years later with a severely depleted bank balance  I sold it for less that 1/2 what I had in it , I so wish i'd gone for the jaguar , looks lovely, hope you find a buyer

In my humble opinion someone who is reaching the conclusion that a Super V8 Jaguar would have been a less ruinous vehicle to purchase is making only good decisions in their life. :-D

Parts were more reasonable would have been the basis for my conclusion

 

I did have a 4.0 XK8 , bought with a blown up engine obviously , one a new engine was fitted it ran like a swiss watch in the 4 years I had it until an ABS light killed it

Sold! Not to a member of this parish, but it was a refreshingly straightforward transaction. The guy knew exactly what he was getting into, didn't have unrealistic expectations and before you knew it the deal was done. Will be sorely missed this one, but needs must.

Onwards and upwards. Ah the Rangie. It ran out of electricity. Amazingly it seems to just be the battery being old combined with a mild case of battery drain and not the alternator. I don't think P38s like lead-calcium batteries.
