The much anticipated XJ40 offered revolutionary advances in Jaguar motoring, and their crisp styling is now much appreciated within enthusiast circles. We can vouch for this Sovereign having known the history since new. It was supplied by Chelsea dealer Follett to a lady who resided overseas mostly while this car was stored underground in a carpark adjoining Harrods. We eventually purchased it from the family with just 12,000 miles covered and have supplied it to three subsequent owners. The last owner has just part exchanged the vehicle with us, so it is a pleasure to see it back- pristine as ever and now covered 37,000 miles.

There is an abundance of bills and service history. Just serviced, recent premium brand tyres all round with reconditioned alloy wheels and the air conditioning has received extensive work with drier, condenser and compressor all overhauled by an ex- Salmon Davia and Alpinair specialist engineer. Importantly this is first of the revised (Ford era) models retaining the now coveted original shape and featuring the smarter dashboard configuration. Last but not least, this has the smoothest and most refined AJ6 engine of the bunch- the ‘pre cat’ 4 litre with sport mode. Finished in the always popular colour scheme of Regency Red with Doeskin Leather. An immaculate, well specified example.
