Queen Elizabeth-Owned Jaguar X-Type Estate Sells For £15,000

The X-Type isn’t considered Jaguar’s finest hour – and rightly so. However, this particular example is rather special.

Even though the X-Type is deemed by many a Ford in drag, especially the corgi-carrying estate model, it looks like the Queen of England was perfectly satisfied owning and even driving one. That’s not the case anymore, because the vehicle was sold to its second owner for a tad over $20,000 (£15,000).

The sale ran online through the London dealer Fletchdale and, according to a spokesman for the company, “it went to a buyer unaware of its former owner”. He stated to The Sun that “someone unwittingly bought a slice of royalty”. That means the customer acquired the Jag with 7,600 miles (12,231 km) registered on the odometer, Sovereign trim, heated seats, parking sensors and a dog grille, and not at all for being owned by Britain’s most prolific, influential and longest-serving monarchs.

The 5-speed automatic X-Type benefits from 231 PS at 6800 rpm and 244 Nm (180 lbf·ft) of torque at 3,000, rpm from a 2,967 cc V6 engine. It must be a well-maintained example, too, and one never pushed to its limits as it’s hard to imagine the Queen taking her corgis from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds and all the way to the 230 km/h (143 mph) top speed.
