Offered here is a beautiful Jaguar XJ40 4.0 Sovereign, finished in Arctic Blue metallic with a Saville Grey leather interior. The car has covered just 29'000 miles from new and is in immaculate condition.

 

The bodywork is truly excellent throughout. The paintwork has a lovely deep shine, the panels are super straight and panel gaps excellent. The coachwork is virtually unmarked and appears to be all original. It is certainly on of the best XJ40s you will see. It is also completely rust free

 

The interior is in virtually immaculate condition. The grey leather seats show virtually no wear, nor do the matching grey carpets. The wood veneers are all excellent. The headliner is free from any sagging and all the original Sovereign features remain such as electric front seat adjust, electric mirror adjust, Climate Control, Cruise Control etc etc.

 

The chrome and bright works are also close to immaculate , still retaining a nice deep lustre and are free from any tarnish/dings or wear and both front and rear bumpers are exceptionally straight for an XJ40.

 

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

 

On the road the Jaguar 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 an excellent MOT record and has quite clearly been very well cared for over its 28 years.

 

The car comes with 3 keys and has had just 2 previous owners, the original lady owner having owned the car for nearly 27 years, only using it to drive from her home in London to her home in Monaco due to a dislike for flying!

 

In conclusion, this is a beautiful and very low mileage example of the now classic XJ40 and in Sovereign spec. Similar cars are increasingly difficult to find.

 

Unfortunately this vehicle has been previously repaired after an insurance claim so is showing as a Category C. I can find no evidence at all of any previous repair so I can only assume that very minor damage has occurred at a point in the cars life where repair was deemed uneconomical.

 

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