The Jaguar XJ, X300, was built between 1994 and 1997. It was the first XJ produced entirely under Ford ownership, and can be considered an evolution of the outgoing XJ40. Like all previous XJ generations, it features the Jaguar independent rear suspension arrangement. The design of the X300 placed emphasis on improved build quality, improved reliability, and a return to traditional Jaguar styling elements. At the car's launch in October 1994 at the Paris Motor Show, Jaguar marketing material made use of the phrase "New Series XJ" to describe the X300 models. The X300 series represented the result of a £200 million facilities renewal program by Ford. The program introduced state of the art automated body welding robots manufactured by Nissan, and was intended to show the future direction of the British auto industry.

To honour Jaguar's achievements, Queen Elizabeth II visited the Browns Lane factory in December 1994, and ordered a British Racing Green X305 Daimler Double Six for her personal use.This was the Queen's second visit to Jaguar's Coventry factory since 1956.

This example is a nice looking Jaguar XJ Sport in a very attractive colour combination. Supplied new to Walker Bros of Cowley in Oxford, this example has only had 5 owners in total, and the last owner was a Reverend of St Albans in Herts. The car has all its correct books and wallets etc, including the owner's manual and service book, which shows the car was serviced by Jaguar main dealerships up to 98,000 miles and thereafter by independent specialists.

Recent expenditure includes new front brake discs, pads and callipers, new track rod ends, a complete new exhaust system, and a major service in January 2019 at 131,723 miles. The car runs absolutely beautifully giving a very comfortable ride. The new brakes work perfectly, and the car runs extremely well after all the recent expenditure. The car should provide the next owner with a long period of trouble free motoring in style.
