The XJ can be considered Sir William Lyon’s masterpiece. It was the last car drawn by the Jaguar co-founder and what he created in 1968 proved enduring: The luxury saloon was built for many years with only minor modifications to the body shape. The XJ not only superseded the S models, but the 420 and Mk II as well; it became the only Jaguar saloon and one of the best-known British cars ever.
In March 2003, under the factory designation X350, Jaguar entered a new technological era with a body monocoque construction of rivet-bonded aluminium pressings. With this technology, known from the aerospace industry, the vehicle weight was reduced by 40 percent and this with an improved body rigidity of 60 percent. With a total weight of approximately 1700 kg, the XJ8 weighs at least 300 kg less than possibly more powerful German-made luxury cars. The standard air suspension, from Thyssen-Krupp-Automotive, the chassis control system (CATS) and the dynamic stability control (DSC) met the high standard of this luxury class. Not only on the outside does the Brit retain the classic design and elegant charisma of its predecessor models.
