First registered 24.12.2003 this very good condition X Type Jaguar comes with a very high options list on top of which it has Jaguars much vaunted 4 wheel drive system, hardly noticeable in everyday use but there when you need it.
Body work is rust free, with only a minor mark here and there. Presented in the rare to find “Ultra-Violet Blue” complete with the leaping Jag on the bonnet. Interior is in black leather and wood trim and all in very good order apart from wear to the driver’s seat side bolster. Fully optioned this car has electric front seats, four way electric windows, central locking (remote on the aftermarket alarm including full closure/opening, boot release and headlights on), folding/adjustable mirrors and climate control that blows ice cold if required to name a few . Electrically everything works and there are no warning lights showing on the dash.
Mechanically there are no problems, probably helped by the relatively low recorded mileage of 107K and a full history up to 98K (the last stamp is missing but details of the company that carried out the last service given). Currently the MOT is until the end of February next year.
On the road the 2.5 litre V6 petrol engine gives lively performance when needed and cruises effortlessly at motorway speeds. While the automatic gear box is smooth in fully automatic mode. You also have the option to slip the lever over and drive it like a manual for when you want to remind yourself what Jags are all about, sports saloon cars.
Jaguars “S Type” represents probably one of the best buys on the luxury car market today. Values have been depressed for so long it just does not make sense! Finally people are realising just what a lot of car you get for your money with high spec cars such as this one creeping up in value.
