Jaguar Saloons 1987-2006 - 2018 Market Review
Jaguar XJ8

Want to buy a cheap Jag? You’ve come to the right place. By the 1990s Jaguar had lost its way and most of the brand’s design creativity as well.

Buyers today understand the massive gulf between pre-XJ40 models and those which followed and spend accordingly.

Pick of the group would likely be a 4.0-litre XJ8 [with its timing chain woes cured] or the aluminium-bodied X350.

If collector interest is a factor then a very low-kilometre XJR may have some hope. Also, don’t rule out the supercharged S Type-R with 4.2 litres and a supercharger all for less than
$30,000.

XJ6/Sovereign 1987-93 $7500 [34]

XJ6/Sport/Sovereign 1994-97 $10,995 [30]

XJ8/Sport Sovereign 1997-2002 $11,825 [24]
