Jaguar XJ12 6.0 Saloon (X305)
Superb Documented Servicing
Excellent Condition

The Last V12
The Coventry commies excelled themselves with this power-plant; one of the last
uncompromising designs where the focus was on surreal smoothness (an area of total
triumph) rather than performance or indeed, any tacit nod in the vague direction
of 'gesture' economy. The X300 model is better built than any previous Jaguar and is not
a fragile car, the best looking saloon car ever? perhaps, and the sensation that
the horizon is moving towards you rather than you sprinting to it, your motoring
eduction is not complete until you have owned a Jaguar 6.0 V12. The big 12 is
darn near bulletproof, and the sound they make on start up is like that of an aircraft,
ultra smooth, go ahead and balance that 50p coin on op of the engine.

This XJ12 in Ice Blue metallic and Regatta Blue hide with Walnut fascia was manufactured
on 14th October 1994 and delivered to Jaguar Cars Ltd where it lived its first 2 years
as a demonstrator for use by senior management. It was first registered on 11th November
1994. Showing only 4 owners, they have owned it for long periods of time, lst keeper for
12 years. This is pretty rare on a twenty year old car! A 14 stamp service record accompanies
it and a rather thick folder of bills neatly presented in chronological order including a
sea of Mots. It has never been in an accident and the panel gaps are bang on and is
therefore HPi clean in all respects.

Recent work in the last twenty thousand miles detailed below and the bills for this add up
to more than £6300.

The bodywork really is in fantastic condition for a car of this age and better than any
other X300 I have come across at Jaguar rallies. You won’t be disappointed. I’ve taken
pictures of the sills to show how solid and straight they are as this is often an X300
weak spot. All chrome is tidy. The interior is very straight with next to no wear. The
woodwork is all perfect and everything works exactly as it should.

The interior is a wonderful place to be, totally silent and cosseting the occupants whilst
the vehicle goes about it's business in the most unobtrusive manner, every journey seems
too short! Period specification to include leather upholstery, electric seat height adj
climate control air conditioning, cruise control, original Clarion stereo, remote central
locking, electric windows front and rear, electric mirrors, fog lamps, trip and fuel
computer, 16 inch style alloys with excellent Pirelli tyres all round, original deep pile
carpet mats. The original tool kit is all present and correct. The steering wheel adjusts
for reach and this car has a working electric rear blind. No modifications at all and as
it rolled out the factory aside the fitting of a supercharger front grill which enhances

Other Information
This is a real find and it will be very difficult indeed to replace this car, the
limited production numbers and short life cycle correlates to very very few examples
being registered at all and even less still on the road.
