1996 Jaguar X330 XJ6 LWB 3.2


  • Rare LWB 3.2 in very good condition 
  • Just two registered keepers 
  • Low mileage car with FSH 
  • Recent service and waxoil 
  • Long MOT to November 2024

The Appeal 

The X300’s classic style and smooth Jaguarness makes it a popular emerging classic. Likely few are quite like this one. Not only is it one of just 747 3.2 LWB cars built, it is a very low mileage, highly original car that arrives with us in quite remarkable condition. 
Inside and out this is a well kept car thanks to its two careful owners. The first, an Italian lady, was only ever chauffeur driven in the car when she visited London (it was dry stored in winter). The second is a Jaguar enthusiast who has, if anything, treated it with even more care.
The evidence for this is documented in the vast history file. It includes 20 service stamps, all by Jaguar main dealers and well known marque specialists. There is a recent service and long MOT. 
This is one of the best examples we have recently seen of a car that is garnering growing interest. It is a collector-quality car ready for its third keeper in 28 years.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.


We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
