    2000 Jaguar XJR with Arden Upgrades

    Ok where do I start with this? This is a fantastic example of an XJR. 4.0 V8 400bhp. 3 owners from new.

    This is a very special car. Look at the service history (last picture), it spans half my living room carpet! There must be 20 HA Fox receipts, all the old MOT’s, it all adds up to about £80k in receipts alone.Important things to note are; full service history, last one carried out 3 weeks ago including oil, filters, spark plugs and new coil packs. Arden lowering springs, not too low, it’s a very comfy ride, full wheel alignment carried out at the same time. Cost £3175. Full Arden exhaust system from the manifold back including cats. Cost £3924. This system sounds amazing, it doesn’t drone at all, but it sounds like a jet when you put your foot down. Arden Grille. £345. Arden engine management upgrade pushing the power to 400bhp. Cost £700. All Arden upgrades supplied and fitted by Racing Green Cars. Throttle body butterfly modification and calibration. Cost £324. Third generation guides, tensioners and timing chains fitted at 112k miles, cylinder heads sent off for crack testing and skimming, refitted with new gaskets and head bolts, sump stripped and pickup cleaned, coolant pipes replaced. Cost £2751. Water pump replaced along with starter motor, the list goes on.....everything mechanically has been done to this car. It has the steel lined engine so no nikasil issues at all.

    Condition. Look at it, it is stunning, paint work is outstanding, only a couple of tiny stone chip marks here and there and that is me being extremely fussy. The alloy wheels are immaculate and don’t have a single mark on them. The tyres are in fantastic condition, the underneath was professionally under sealed a few years ago and it has always been garaged. There are no scuffs, scratches or dents anywhere on this car, it really is stunning.

    The interior is very good, smells exactly like a Jag should! Very high spec including electric windows all round, power steering, climate control, cruise control, steering wheel controls, cd changer in the boot, full electric heated seats including electric headrests, parking sensors, premium Alpine upgraded stereo from factory, sport mode. Only negatives to note are the seats could do with a thorough deep clean to remove the ground in dirt (again just me being fussy) and the headlining is sagging in places. Not terrible but worth noting. In an ideal world and to make the car immaculate, it would be worth the £160 to replace it.

    Two keys and fobs plus green ‘valet’ key.

    All in all this is a ‘one of a kind’ car, meticulously looked after with all receipts to prove the work carried out over the years.

    Price £6750 Ono
