Jaguar Sovereign 4.0 LWB … Smooth Operator – drive with a smile

Say “X300” and the connoisseur will know it is the fifth Jaguar XJ generation, built from 1994 to 1997. The executive Jag came on the market in several versions.

Sir Lyons had traditionally chosen that name from 500 animal names. And it turned out not to be a bad choice.
