Famous Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty’s daughter Athiya Shetty has recently put her car up for sale. The car in question is a 2012 model Jaguar XF S powered by a 3.0 litre diesel powerplant. It is sold by an agent named Manish Nathani and the advertisement for sale appeared on Facebook. You can get in touch with Mr. Nathani on +91-9323626364.
The car has not changed any hands till now as it was bought and owned by the Shetty family themselves. The car has done 51,000 kilometres till now (as in the advertisement) and the asking price set by the dealer is Rs. 25.25 Lakh, negotiable at the time of purchase.
At its time, the original cost of the vehicle was around Rs. 59 lakh (ex-showroom), so the current asking price is not too much on the higher side. In fact, it’s cheaper than a new Toyota Fortuner by a few lakhs. Of course, it’ll cost more to maintain than a Toyota Fortuner, and there’s no warranty as well. However, expect the car to be well maintained as is the case with most of the cars owned by Bollywood celebrities. So, what do you think? Is this car a better buy than a new Toyota Fortuner?
The Jaguar XF is a high-end luxury saloon which is doing quite well in the Indian automobile market currently.

The signature radiator grille, LED daytime running lights and stylish alloy wheels make a presence on the car and it looks like a true blue Jaguar.
Advanced safety features like pedestrian contact sensing, ABS with EBD and traction control among others make sure the car keeps the occupants safe.
