Offered here is a lovely Daimler XJ40 4.0, finished in Solent Blue with a Saville Grey leather interior. The car has covered just 97'000 miles from new and is in excellent condition.

The bodywork is very good throughout. The paintwork has a lovely deep shine, the panels are very straight and panel gaps excellent. There are only very minor age related marks that in no way detract from the overall superb presentation.

The interior is in a similar condition. The leather seats show virtually no wear, nor do the matching grey carpets. The wood veneers are very good. The headliner is free from any sagging having been recently replaced and all the original Daimler features remain.

The chrome and bright work are also very good , still retaining a nice lustre and are free from any major heavy tarnish.

The car is fitted with its original 15" Daimler 'Roulette' alloy wheels. All are in excellent condition and shod with very good Pirelli tyres.

On the road the Daimler performs superbly. The car starts without hesitation, without any smoke and settles immediately into a steady idle. The 4.0 straight 6 delivers ample power and the gearbox changes smoothly and without hesitation. The suspension, ride and handling are classic XJ, super smooth with no noticeable knocks or clunks. The car has had a recent full service along with a steering rack overhaul and 4 wheel alignment at Tasker and Lacy Jaguar specialists and also benefits from a full custom built stainless steel exhaust system, fitted only 6 months ago.

The car comes with an excellent service record and history and has had 7 former keepers. There is an MOT record back as far as 1999.

In conclusion, this is an excellent example of the now classic XJ40. Similar cars are increasingly difficult to find.

It is ready for a new owner to enjoy it and it will be supplied with a long MOT and a full detail valet.
