Jaguar X308 – 20 years

If 1997 marked the end of an era for Jaguar with the phasing out of its famous XJ6 nameplate, it saw the start of another thanks to the debut of the XJ8 – codenamed the X308. Running for six years, the X308-generation XJ was based around the previous X300 but with Jaguar’s new AJ-V8 engine under the bonnet, in a choice of 3.2- or 4.0-litre guises. The new line-up included the XJ8, Sport and Sovereign, plus the supercharged XJR – a high-performance gem with 370bhp on tap. Buy a ‘standard’ X308 now from £1500 upwards and enjoy some modern-classic opulence.
