Jaguar and Daimler XJ (1997-2003) X308

Connoisseurs can distinguish it easily: The "youngtimer" X308, which differs only slightly from its predecessor X300. In any case, it is a very classic-looking collector's item that is a pleasure to drive. And thanks to our catalogue, we are always on hand with exactly the right spare parts for the X308.

Exterior design

The exterior design of the X308 was largely taken over from its predecessor, the X300. The most recognisable features are the nostalgic four round headlights and the radiator grille with rounded edges. Distinguishing features are also the chrome trim on the bumpers and the curved bonnet.

The Daimler can be recognised by the detailed, curved lines on the radiator grille and the boot lid as well as the chrome trim. The Daimler Sovereign has a somewhat sportier appearance.

Interior design

The interior of the X308, on the other hand, has received some noticeable changes. For example, the new dashboard - embedded in fine burl wood - for the first time again leaves room for a glove compartment, which was displaced by an airbag in the XJ40.

The door panels and cockpit have been redesigned with softer, rounder lines that are more sweeping than the angular edges of the predecessor.

The X308's peculiarities are the low roof, typical of Jaguar, and the precisely measured legroom. For those who don't care too much, the wide-opening doors, extremely comfortable seats and smooth suspension are a delight.


The Jaguar X308 was also essentially based on the XJ40 platform and was offered as a four-door saloon with notchback in the versions XJ8, XJ Executive, Sovereign or Daimler V8.

The upgraded front axle gives the X308 greater agility - and therefore more driving pleasure - in all versions. The CATS (Computer Active Technology Suspension) shock absorbers developed by Jaguar also contribute to this. These are computer-controlled, using numerous sensors to support safety and ride comfort in Jaguar's fine models.

Optional extras for the Daimler version include an electric sliding and lifting roof, leather or wooden steering wheel and heated seats on all rows of seats. Very special are the fold-out tables made of walnut root wood with rosewood inlays or the lambskin carpets with high pile.


In the X308, the classic six and twelve-cylinder units of the predecessor were replaced for the first time by the new Jaguar eight-cylinder. Depending on the model, the vehicles equipped in this way can reach speeds of 225 km/h up to 250 km/h. The fuel consumption figures were within limits. Consumption figures remained within limits, between 12 and 13 litres per 100 kilometres.

Additionally equipped with the supercharged variant of the V8 engine were the Jaguar XJR models and the Daimler Super 8, which represented the top luxury class of the X308. The latter was also known outside Europe as the "Jaguar 4.0 Vanden Plas Supercharged" and, like the XJR, was driven to the rear wheels via five-speed automatic transmission.
