Footnotes

  • Introduced in September 1994, the restyled ‘X300’ was just about the final step in the evolution of Jaguar’s long-running XJ6 series. Its arrival marked a welcome return to the more fluid lines of the Series III XJ6, the angular appearance of the outgoing XJ40 having failed to meet with universal approval. Equally importantly, the enlarged boot could now accommodate the benchmark ‘two sets of golf clubs’ just like that of the original. Designated ‘AJ16’, two heavily revised six-cylinder 24-valve engines of 3.2 and 4.0 litres capacity replaced the previous AJ6 series, producing 200bhp and 246bhp respectively. The ‘old’ V12, already enlarged to 6.0 litres, continued in the XJ12 and Daimler Double Six models, though its V8 replacement was only just over the horizon. This particular car was originally allocated to Jaguar Company Vehicles, Fleet Operations and served as a Police car demonstrator. Over the first two years of its life it was regularly loaned to Police forces all over the country for assessment, and was also used for exhibitions. When it was replaced on the company fleet by one of the later models in February 1998, it was turned over to the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, complete with the high visibility Police car livery, blue lamps and other special equipment. MoT’d to April 2010 and offered with V5 registration document. The buyer of this vehicle must comply with road regulations and cover the Police signs whilst driving on public roads.
