Rare and sought after manual X300 XJR in need of restoration
SOLD: 1994 X300 XJR Manual
One of only 102 rhd built, this Supercharged X300 Manual is rare and sought after!
Following our very successful XJR Manual Day in August of this year, Xclusively Jaguar is very fortunate that 2 of our readers have opted to put their very rare cars on the market. This one is drivable, but in need of work, making it affordable now as a future project and the other one is in good drivable condition. It is thought that approximately only 40 of these sought after cars survive today, hence the huge resale premium they attract, relative to other X300 variants.
Buy this one at a bargain price and rebuild it yourself, or buy one in good road-going condition HERE

I fitted/to fit
Overhauled clock in stock? not fitted
Revised Crank Sensor Bracket Possibly in stock not fitted
Replacement radio (code known) fitted
Stainless bolts to both bumper mounts fitted (rear trims currently not fitted but with car)
Front callipers overhauled with new seals & pistons and fitted
New front discs fitted
What has been done
All interior has been out and floor welded both sides
Rear wheel arches were welded up with XJ40 repair panels when I first got the car.
One side light feeds the other as there was a broken wire in the loom somewhere.
They are connected together at the lamp control module anyway so this is quite acceptable.
Supercharger Oil replaced. Supercharger had been replaced not long before I bought the car.
13/09/16 New headlining £185 + VAT for fit only as I supplied new headlining on back board.
What doesn’t work/needs doing
Paint lacquer worn through
New sump to fit
Timing gear idler bolt fell out. Removed from sump. Some new parts available
Air con new drier and condenser supplied with car
Offside front wing holed. Good wing supplied with car
Near side front wing holed.
Replacement front spoiler under front bumper (I have one in stock)
Exhaust manifolds cracked (I have 2 in stock)
Offside inner plastic wing needs replacing (I have one in stock)
Boot release button doesn’t work (Micro switch in stock)
Gear lever floppy. Rubber mounts failed or bracket loose.
What is good
There have never been any problems with emissions on MOT. It has always been to the same MOT station in my ownership.
Recent MOT, expires March 2020. Only problem was handbrake and small hole in inner sill front off side which cost £20 to have welded. Handbrake completely rebuilt with new discs & brake shoes and is now excellent.
When I acquired the car it had a personalised plate which was unsuitable. (J4 GNV)
DVLA issued the current number but not the original number which is surprising as that is what normally happens. At the same time I did another car and that ended up with its original number.
