2009 Jaguar XK X150 5.0 Litre
MODEL: XK 5.0 (X150)
PRICE: £15,995.00 - ONO
As far as good-looking British coupe’s go, there aren’t that many to choose from that have been produced in the last twenty years, especially not that compete with the likes of Aston Martin and Ian Callum’s beauties. Thankfully Jaguar employed Ian shortly after his legendary penning of the timeless and classy Vanquish era cars at Aston Martin. Hence the gorgeous lines and smooth masculinity of the X150 cars. Of which this is a later facelifted car, the best of them all, in a classic colour combination, it has class and style in abundance – the Jaguar staple of grace, space and pace still lives on.
Not only were the looks drastically improved from the X100 platform, but the technical side of the car was also brought into the 21st century too, with a rear axle and suspension design that is befitting of a car of its era, not one 5 decades prior. Impressive braking performance and that later 5.0L V8 creating a heady growl and putting out enough lazy power and torque to surge you towards the horizon at a serious rate of knots. The gearbox is another real improvement on the platform, no more changes handled by a sloth posting them by Royal Mail on strike, you have flappy paddles to take control with sharp and crisp shifts, or buttery smooth auto that is always in the right gear. A very well-suited combination with the toque of the 5.0L, you’re never flustered for an overtake, that’s for sure.
The suspension is sportier and the car corners flatter than the prior XK’s, but with no loss of compliance, in fact they are surprisingly even more comfortable. There is more space in the cabin, rear seats and also in the boot, thanks to the fabulously engineered hatch. Press that race mode button and release the big cat under the bonnet by opening the exhaust valves & we’re sure you’ll be smitten with this big kitten!
To add to all of that, this car, being a Portfolio spec means that you have every conceivable option, let alone for 2009!
Heated electric steering wheel and column,
heated and cooled, electric memory seats,
Bowers and Wilkins stereo upgrade
Heated front and rear screen,
Keyless entry and go,
to name but a few, you’d be hard pushed to find a more opulent, sexy and swift way to travel for this money. There is also the peace of mind that we have sold this car to the last 2 owners, where it has been exceedingly well cared for.
Regardless of the season you can travel in complete comfort, whilst looking great in doing so, there really aren’t many better ways to cross continents.
The car is accompanied by two keys, full service history, purely by Jaguar main dealers and specialists including ourselves since 2017, with 13 stamps in the book, it is completely full and it will be overflowing with 14 stamps before it goes to its new owner, they don’t get much better. It also had two new rear tyres at 78,000 miles, so there is a lot trouble free motoring to be enjoyed still.
The car has undergone our standard sales preparation, meaning a full machine polish and mechanical once over. The car will have a full service in preparation for its new owner carried out by our other company – JagTechnic, who have looked after this car for years, so it couldn’t be prepared any better prior to sale. It will be a case of pressing the start button and enjoying it.
If you’re looking for an X150, this one will be well worth your time.
