Slick and stylish, the Jaguar XJ has been defining British motor style for generations, with its distinctive racing green evoking images of roaring across the English countryside.

Around 12 000 XJs are sold every year which makes them Jaguar’s flagship model.

A rich history

The XJ was the last Jaguar to have input from the legendary founder of the firm, Sir Willliam Lyons, and its place in British culture is notable as it is the car in which the royal family and the Prime Minister are driven.

Jaguar have perfected the art of consistency over the years and its design features is testament to that. Although its body length has stayed relatively the same, its double headlight layout stays the same from the first gen right up until the ninth.

XJ's scream British heritage and sophistication with acquired taste and later technologies making them such a sough after car in Europe.
