Pedigree Cat for Moggy Money- 29th March 2019

This Jaguar XF-S is a pedigree cat for moggy money but your neighbours won’t know, all they’ll see is you driving a Jag and assume you’ve moved up in the world. 

Once upon a time, you had to be a wealthy business person, a politician or ahead of State to afford the luxury of waiting around in a Jaguar. But come Tuesday afternoon you could be lording about in this late model luxury feline with low mileage without breaking the bank. How can that be?

Jaguar makes some very fine cars but their reputation for being a bit stuffy, conservative and expensive to run has stuck with them meaning used ones can sometimes be picked up for less than they should be worth. But is that fair? The XF model breaks away from old XJ sedan design that can only be driven by 60+ year old men and is actually a very modern and aggressive looking car that has attracted younger drivers into the fold. And the XF also has strong reliability ratings from owners and is not the money pit some people might imagine.

This car has the frugal but powerful 3L diesel engine but it’s no tractor thanks to a large herd of horses (and two turbochargers) under the bonnet providing the power to launch the Jag from a standstill to 100kph in less than 6 seconds. The interior is classy and comfortable and, as you’d expect, is full of luxury and safety kit to make your life just that much better.

So it looks sharp, is fast, has plenty of satisfied owners around the world and has that cache you get from a Jaguar that you don’t get in the all-too-common BMW 5 series.

This 2009 Jaguar XF-S has traveled just 51,000kms by two owners and the auction estimate is a mere $15500-$16200.  You’ll look like the cat that got the cream when you pull into your driveway. More details here.
