By 1989, Jaguar / Daimler had been bought by Ford who changed the engine offerings of the XJ6. Six years later, recognising that its boxy lines could do with a facelift, the company allowed designer Geoff Lawson to adopt a somewhat retro path for the X300 Series version. This line was revised for the last time in 1997, at which point much-praised new, Bridgend-built V8 engines replaced the previous six-cylinder ones - enter the XJ8. The new units were available in 3.2, 4.0 normally aspirated and 4.0-litre supercharged form, the outputs of which ranged from 240bhp to 370bhp. Most other aspects of the handsome big Saloon were also an improvement on those of its predecessor - the ride in particular won many plaudits especially on the long wheelbase cars. Rarer and more expensive like for like than their Jaguar brethren, the Daimler variants have become increasingly sought after.
