Jaguar Xj Excellent, Well Cared For on 2040-cars

Clarklake, Michigan, United States
You are looking at a beautiful Jaguar XJ sedan. I've owned this car for 6+ years---bought it off lease from Jaguar of Novi. This car is in excellent condition. I get compliments regularly. The dealer would also tell you I'm considered one of the best, most discriminating owners they deal with and the car shows it. I used the car 99% of the time for a 70 mile commute to my office via highway. As I now work from home, I drive the car very little, thus I'm selling. I've owned 5 Jaguars and have had a great experience with them. This car needs nothing. About 20,000 miles ago, I had all fluids, belts, hoses, thermostat, spark plugs and tune up done. Oil was always done on time by Jaguar of Novi and using synthetic oil. This car runs and drives as it did when I bought it with 30,000 miles on it in 2008. There is under 125,000 highway miles on this car. There are no door dings and the paint shows beautifully on the aluminum body which will never rust. Slight wear on the driver seat, but other than that the interior is excellent. If you are the successful bidder, you can speak to the dealer's service agent who will tell you this is a wonderful car with a great, normal wear items only, service record. I also would get 30+ MPG on the highway. The front brakes and alignment were done not too long ago. The rear brakes will need service in the next few thousand miles. I am reflecting the purchase price to include $400 towards this service at Jaguar of Novi. I want the new owner to be told personally---if they choose---how highly the dealer regards this car and condition. Tires probably have 10K miles on them and are in good condition. This Jag was not driven in the winter.

Mike Hawthorne and Ivor Bueb won The 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1955 driving a Jaguar D-Type. The following year, a few days before the race, a British broadcaster put cameras on Hawthorne's car, hung a mic from a plate on his race suit and had him narrate a lap of the Circuit de la Sarthe.

It is compelling viewing. A new pit complex was built after the massive accident on the front straight in 1955, but this was still a time when crews prepped for the race on roads that were open to the public. Hawthorne's lap includes maneuvers to avoid bicyclists and cars, and gems like letting us know that doing 185 miles per hour down the Mulsanne Straight was where you could "relax a little, recover your energy." Watch him work it like the men of old in the video below.
Sometimes procrastination has its benefits. Jaguar originally planned to build a run of 18 E-Type Lightweights for racing in the '60s. However, it was only ever to complete 12 of them. It has taken all of the intervening decades to finally get back to the project and build the final run of new Lightweights. While Jag announced the plan recently, the first continuation model was unveiled during the Pebble Beach weekend.

Coming from Jaguar Land Rover's Special Operations unit, these cars are identical to the way they left the factory in the '60s. Jag is even using the same grade of aluminum for the bodies, and the cars are fully compliant for FIA historic racing. Power comes from an aluminum, 3.8-liter inline-six with about 300 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque routed through a four-speed manual gearbox. Who could guess that in 2014 someone could buy a brand new vehicle from a major manufacturer that comes with Weber carbs? Though, Lucas mechanical fuel injection is an option.
While they look old, these new E-types are also a wonder of modern technology. To get things just right, the company laser scanned an original car to create the new bodies. Check out the gallery from the unveiling to see this old cat on the prowl again.
We thought the C-X17 concept looked pretty good when Jaguar unveiled it in Frankfurt a couple of months ago. But that shade of blue, while nice enough, made it look like it shared more than a similar name with the Mazda CX-7. No, what a Jaguar needs is a more luxurious paint job than electric blue. And that's just what the British automaker has given its crossover concept in time for the Dubai Motor Show this week.
What we have here is the same C-X17, but repainted in what Jaguar calls "a lustrous Liquid Aluminum liquid metal finish," and we have but to agree. What do you think? Scope it out in the fresh batch of high-res images above and cast your vote in the poll below.
