1995 Jaguar XJR (X306)

No Reserve

Three owner example from 23 year ownership; in storage for the past six years; rare supercharged 4.0 AJ16S example in lovely unmolested order serviced and MOT'd in October 2021

Delivered new in April 1995 to its corporate 1st owner, Natwest PLC (Natwest Markets) of Milton Keynes by H.R Owen of London, this attractive and now rare X306 generation of the Jaguar XJ saloon features the potent supercharged 4.0 litre AJ16S inline 6-cylinder engine. This developed 326bhp and a whopping 512NM of torque resulting in a 0-60mph dash of around 5.7 seconds - power went to the rear wheels via GM’s four-speed 4L80-E automatic gearbox although some cars featured the ‘standard’ five-speed manual Getrag gearbox.

The X306 series was Jaguar’s first supercharged car and the 2nd only Jag to use forced induction after the turbocharged XJ220 supercar.  The supercharger came from Eaton, an M90 model and increased power over the ‘standard’ X300 3.2 and 4.0 engine XJ’s by around 100Bhp – quite the increase and very much the high performance sporting variant in the range.

This appealing example is finished in dark Blue and rides on its original and very attractive 17inch alloy wheels, not dissimilar in style to those fitted to the XJ220 which really fill the arches and set the car aside from ‘regular’ X300’s.  Inside, we find light grey leather seats, dark grey dash top roll, centre console, door tops and traditional walnut trim in great shape given its some 27 years old and showing 161,526 miles. Bodily the car is tidy with just a few marks as pictured to the bumper corners, bar those, its hard to tell the car’s age and mileage – it looks and feels like it’s done half of that.

In addition, the spec includes automatic transmission, trip computer, electric seats, automatic digital climate control with A/C, traction control, cruise control, rear ventilation, map pockets, sunroof and original Jaguar radio cassette player with boot mounted CD changer.

The car has been in the same ownership for the last 23 years, spending the last six years garaged and unused.  The car was pulled out and put through an MOT and check over with replacement gearbox mount being fitted ahead of a Charity rally to be undertaken by our vendor which has unfortunately been cancelled due to the ongoing Covid problems in Europe – as a result, this supercharged 90’s super-saloon is reluctantly offered for sale at No Reserve.

The history file includes the V5C showing just two previous owners, owner’s pack, service book showing 10 main dealer stamps and a further five hand-written entries for annual services up to the last in 2005 at 136,721 miles and one recent stamp for its recent service in October 2021. Two further stamps are present for anti-corrosion checks by main dealer.

Furthermore, we also find two recent invoices for the service items and replacement gearbox mount and nine old MOTs dating from April 1999 at 92,914 miles to February 2014 at 158,573 miles.  The current MOT is valid until October 2022 and recorded three minor advisories for front discs pitted/worn and corrosion to a NS rear brake pipe.

Ready to be enjoyed, these X306’s offer practical supercharged fun in a desirable 90’s package with neat lines, classic Jaguar styling and rarity by the bucket load.

Documents: V5C; owner's pack & service book with 11 stamps + 5 hand written entries; 2 invoices; 9 old MOTs; MOT October 2022 with 3 advisories
