The Jaguar XJ Series is an exceptionally talented used purchase. This legendary saloon is therefore perfect for wannabe tycoons - even those on a budget. So, for the price of a new Ford Focus you too can enjoy supreme comfort and terrifying power.

The recently replaced XJ Series (2003 – 2009) is an appealing mixture of technology and traditional styling. It is arguably the final 'great XJ' as the replacement lacks the old style charisma. The late model is therefore the final 'hurrah' for a style concept dating from the 1960's.

To complement the traditional styling there are five modern engines to choose from – four petrol and one diesel. The 2.7-litre diesel is a sensible purchase as it produces 204bhp, wafts to 60mph in 7.8 seconds, and returns a combined average of 35mpg. Petrol lovers can choose the 3.0-litre V6 240bhp, 3.5-litre V8 262bhp, 4.2-litre V8 300bhp, or the supercharged 400bhp 4.2-litre V8. This latter variant roars to 60mph in 4.8 seconds and is electronically limited to 155mph.

As expected by hard-nosed tycoons the handling and ride are exceptionally composed. This is due, in part, to the computer active technology system. This stiffens the suspension for level cornering then softens it for a magic carpet ride. This complements the smooth six-speed automatic transmission, opulent interior, and rock solid reliability.

A decent used 2003 Jaguar XJ Series costs from £10,000.
