Jason's Jag goes up for auction

Jason's Jag goes up for auction

A Jaguar XJS which has been owned by none other than TV star David Jason is set to go under the hammer in the New Year.

The 4.0-litre burgundy grand tourer with cream leather interior was bought brand new by the Only Fools and Horses actor in 1991, and has covered just 61,600 miles in the last two decades.

The car was originally registered in Jason's real name of David White, before being sold to a different owner years later.

The car has recently passed its MOT test and will not need to be tested again until 1 December 2014.

The Jaguar is expected to fetch between £5,500 and £6,500 at the Anglia Car Auctions Classic Sale in King's Lynn on January 25.

Over 100,000 XJS were produced in the UK between 1975 and 1996 before the model was replaced by the XK8.
