This car is in auction on The Market website. The auction is LIVE now and finishes on 3rd March. Price is a lower estimate.

All bidding takes place on The Market (see photos for web address), plus you will find further text, over 90 photos/video fully illustrating the car and its service history, and the ability to ask questions directly to the seller. The text below is just a brief summary of our full description.

Vendor Mark Elliot has owned this car twice. “I’d originally owned one in this spec back in the day – so had good memories – and bought this example five years ago, sight unseen,” he explains. “I was very pleasantly surprised when I collected it. To find a Jaguar in that condition…”

The XJR’s immediate prior owner (its second) was a doctor who had bought it as an ex-demo car and then used it only sparingly. It promptly broke down as Mark drove it home. “The fuel gauge was faulty, and it had run out of petrol. That’s the only time it has ever let me down.”

After fixing the gauge he promptly drove to Portugal where he lived at the time, “it didn’t even blink”. After enjoying the car over there for three years he drove it back to the UK, gifting it to a close friend. “I had five cars at the time and just wasn’t driving it.”

His friend put the car into storage – “the good kind: where they start, drive and care for it”. Eventually, aware that it hadn’t been used, he bought it back from him by paying the storage costs.

He gave the car to The Jag Centre in Spixworth, Norwich on the 11th of December 2020 with instructions to “do whatever necessary to make it perfect”. There it had a full and comprehensive service that included replacement of the following items: oil, air and fuel filters; ignition coil; spark plugs; plug leads; rotor arm; distributor cap; and all fluids. The air-conditioning was also recharged at the same time and some minor remedial paintwork undertaken; the total cost was £1418.96 and the invoice can be viewed in our photo gallery, below.

“It’s a beautiful genuine car, but it’s now time to simplify my life. I live in France now and the hassle of registering it there or arranging annual services and long-term storage in the UK means that it’s now up for sale. Whoever buys it will be pleasantly surprised; The Jag Centre says it’s the best XJR its ever seen.”

The car comes with three keys, a Jaguar XJ6 handbook and a V5 document showing that the car was first registered on the 08/08/90 and has a had a total of five owners from new (including Mark twice!).

The bodywork had two minor blemishes (tiny areas of bubbling) on it when it went to The Jag Centre and these were professionally rectified. The result is one spotless example. “It’s always been garaged so has no sun or rain damage, and no rust at all – it has the bodywork of a two-year old car.”

You get lovely and clean paintwork that’s almost entirely clear of imperfections – the most we could find was one or two very small stone-chips on that deep chin spoiler. And talking of spoilers, and side-skirts while we’re at it, doesn’t this car exude a truly menacing late Eighties/early Nineties stance? Marvellous.

Our photographs and video really bring to life its superb condition, so they’re worth taking your time to peruse. The wheels were refurbished (as was the suspension) during Mark’s first period of ownership and remain very smart. The matching 225/55 R16 Pirelli P6000 tyres (including the spare) all have plenty of tread remaining.

For much more description and photos see The Market website.

The vehicle can be viewed with us in Abingdon, South Oxfordshire.
