Sellers original description:
Exceptionally well kept, great looking sport V8 luxury automobile, one of the finest series that Jaguar makes. This car says a lot about its owner, and has been renowned in the world as a symbol of prestige and class, as well as having great performance.
The vehicle has been made and assembled entirely in England! It's been very well kept and serviced. It’s painted in a great looking silver color which adds a lot of luxury appeal to it. It also has the Alpine Sound package.
Judging by the miles and the condition of the car, it has been mostly used on the highway and it has also been garage kept!
There are no reported manufacturer's defects on this vehicle. A never-smoked-in before beauty that looks great and smells clean.
The engine is an exceptional V8 - one of the most powerful in the segment - runs strong and smooth provides the power you have come to expect from a Jaguar. The transmission has the Jaguar mark on it as well and shifts like on a new car, no skips or slips on shifts - actually it does it so smoothly that you can't feel it shifting. The car runs great! The engine compartment is clean, and free of any leaks.
As you can judge for yourself from the pictures - the interior is clean while the seats are in great condition! Extensive wood trim adds a true luxury touch.
AC blows ice-cold. The passengers at the back can also control and direct airflow. Heated seats is a very nice and desirable option. And there are 14 adjustable power controls including lumbar support for both driver and passenger seats and 3 memory settings so that different drivers can feel comfortably in the same car or for different sitting positions according to the driving environment you face - relaxed for highway cruising, or more hands on for a bit of sport driving. Also comes with speed sensing steering, which makes it easy to navigate through parking lots.
Extra comfort comes from heated seats on both front seats, and extensive lumbar support for the driver’s seat. As well as a steering wheel that slides into your defined position after you sit in the car. The steering wheel has control buttons for most everything so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road. Also has the auto dimming rear view mirror to cope with those who get close behind you, and blind you with their headlights - for a more relaxed evening or night driving experience!
The power locks, windows, seats and moon roof (and all the other electrical features) all work and are in excellent condition.
