A classic Jaguar sedan is an everlasting symbol of affluence and distinction, so we promise to keep this economy price a secret. But this 1994 Jaguar XJ12's appeal is more than just its affordability. And with only 63,029 original miles, this one purrs like a good cat should.
Jaguar's reputation for smoothness, performance, and old-world luxury is earned honestly and this handsome sedan shows all of those virtues rather well. It's been properly maintained throughout its life, a fact demonstrated by the beautiful tan paint that's likely original. The long, low profile is a hallmark of Jaguar cars that offer crisp lines like a finely tailored suit. Both bumpers are in exceptional condition, the big chrome grille shines up well, and details like the shiny metal surrounds around the windows and the twin tailpipes out back are undeniable Jaguar trademarks that are pure English luxury. There are even hints that this was the ultimate XJ with the larger engine and most luxurious Vanden Plas features, and this understated elegance proves its worth as you look over the whole car.
The tan leather interior is where this Jag really shines. Natural materials abound: leather, wool, wood, all of which were finished to standards that only the craftsmen in Coventry, England seem to have mastered. It's beautifully preserved and the contrasting piping on the seats gives it a tailored look. But more than just old-world luxury, this Jag has all the modern conveniences you could want, too. A long list of desirable features include a power sunroof, power seats, power steering, power locks, cruise control, original AM/FM/cassette stereo w/CD changer, and a digital readout/odometer center that goes along with the large round analog speedo and tach. And with a luxury car that's been preserved this well, of course the air-conditioning is still blowing ice-cold. You even get the modern safety of dual front air bags and anti-lock brakes. While there are no markings for the Vanden Plas trim on this car, it was an automatic upgrade when getting the flagship XJ12. That means the rear seats are nearly as comfortable as the front ones thanks to a longer wheelbase, individual rear buckets for two, and fold-down tray tables.
1994 was a great year because it was when Jaguar began importing the XJ sedan with the 6.0-liter V12. This one still carries its original fuel-injected motor, and it's represented nicely in the engine bay with plenty of originality and signs of proper maintenance. The V12 was a true flagship motor that offered 28% more power over the straight-six. This is backed by a smooth-shifting four-speed automatic overdrive transmission that works with the iconic J-gate shifter to let you shift on your own when you want this car to really stretch its performance legs. You'll love this Jaguar because these have always been one of the best handling luxury sedans coming straight from the factory. A fully independent suspension front and rear, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes all makes for the perfect package to attack the backroads on a weekend getaway.
Jaguar cars have always been for the elite. So finding a well maintained example that has averaged less than 2,900 miles per year is a true rare gem. This XJ12 is waiting for the right person to continue its preserved heritage. Call today!!!
