This Jaguar is in like new condition and has a remarkably low 18,500 miles on the odometer.  It very well may have spent most of its life on a lift in the local jag mechanic’s shop, but those of us say the Lucas electronics are half full of smoke like to imagine it is some kind of weekend driven and garage kept classic.  Regardless of this car’s history, it presents a fantastic 2-ton package of luxury for a meager price.

This regal beast isn’t powered by some plebeian V8, only the silky smooth balance of a large inline-6 will allow occupants to be transported in style.  The 4.0 liter inline-6 makes 223 horsepower and 278 ft-lbs of torque.

The inside of this Sovereign edition features well preserved wood, leather and plastics.  It really does look like a car that was kept inside a garage or at a mechanic who stored his cars inside on the weekends.
