XJ SPECIAL EDITION – BEFORE THE ALL NEW NEW XJ ARRIVES – AUTOCAR

A 50th anniversary version of the Jaguar XJ will appear this year, ahead of the new model arriving next year. Design director Ian Callum said the special edition would have “detail work”, adding that the XJ is close to his heart. “1968 was when I decided this is the company I want to work for,” he said. “I will make sure the XJ holds true to its values as we work on the next one.”

NEW XF DIESEL FOR TEST IN NEXT EDITION OF JAGUAR MAGAZINE

In July 2016 we drove an XF-R, powered by a petrol fuelled engine, all the way to outback Priscilla Queen of the Desert country in Broken Hill, via Brisbane and Albury on a 5027 kilometre marathon.

We encountered (by accident) brutal dirt roads, rudely officially titled ‘Highway’, on the journey from Griffith to Broken Hill – but the car performed brilliantly – thankfully because we were out of phone contact!

Now Jaguar Australia has loaned us a new sister model – XF-R – but a diesel version.

It will be fascinating to compare the diesel engined model with the petrol one – but already it is bringing back many fond memories.

It will all be in edition #192.

SELLING ON FEB 27 – MINT XJ-S CONVERTIBLE WITH JUST 2700 MILES

If you are looking for something special to start, or add, to your Jaguar collection – consider this former US XJ-S, sold new in 1989 and a one owner vehicle until it was brought to the UK where it is now on its second owner (in total).

This machine is a star in our new edition(4 page story), and is totally as new – except for the fact that after just 1100 miles the owner replaced the V12 with a Corvette V8 engine!  It now has been driven for a total of less than 2700 miles!

Replacing it with an original 5.3 litre V12 is not a big problem, but finding a mint machine like this one is very very unusual.

Now the owner, Daryl Lovelock, is offering the car in the Barons Auction coming up on February 27.

You will probably never find an original XJ-S like this one (save for the engine, of course) and it looks like the seats have never even been sat in and the carpets don’t have a mark on them.

The sale will be conducted at Sandown race course at Esher in the UK and the car is expecting to sell for between 33,000 and 40,000 Pounds.
