Growing up, many of us had bedroom posters of our dream cars and dreamt of owning them one day. Many of us were successful whereas some of them are still trying to figure out a way to fulfill the childhood dream. Here in this article we have one such story of a guy who has recently fulfilled his dream of buying a luxury car. The guy in the video is Tapesh Kumar who is working as a pilot with an airline,, but who also started out with very humble origins. He comes from a family that didn’t even have a two wheeler. And the dream car Mr. Tapesh recently bought is none other than an used Jaguar XJ-L luxury saloon.
The video has been uploaded by Boeing Boy on his youtube channel. As mentioned above, the guy is a pilot and had worked hard to get this job. In the video he gives a small introduction that he came from a very humble background. His family did not even had a two wheeler when he was a child. When he grew up and got his dream job of pilot he started saving for his dream car and finally bought this used Jaguar XJ-L recently.
The XJL is one of the most luxurious sedans sold in the country. The one seen in the video is a 5.0 litre petrol V8 engine version which is not available in the country anymore. Jaguar XJL is a huge vehicle in terms of dimension and offers a host of features that usually a luxury car in this segment offers.
The video also shows how the V8 actually sounds and also shows the interiors, gear knobs and the driving modes. As mentioned above, the car is powered by a 5.0 litre V8 petrol engine. Mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox, this car generates a maximum of 385 Bhp and 625 Nm of peak torque.
A brand new XJL would cost over a crore in the Indian market but, as these are all luxury cars, they tend to depreciate more in comparison to normal vehicles. If you are in the market looking for a used luxury car like XJL, you can have it for Rs 20 lakh or less than that. One of the things that buyers should keep in mind while buying these cars is that these cars are not at all cheap to maintain. Part replacement can cost lakhs of rupees, and it’s important that people buying such cars in the used car market budget enough money for maintenance.
