My personal circumstances have changed hence this very reluctant sale. My plan was to start a wedding car business and use this together with my XJ6, but sadly this is no longer viable.

 The car has had 2 previous owners from new. The one before me is a family friend of 56 years and he cherished the car for 14 years, only selling it due to major back surgery. He was a time-served mechanic and serviced the vehicle himself using only OEM parts.

* It's had a new headlining & board professionally fitted at a cost of £750

* It has a new blue top tint OEM windscreen

* It has a completely refurbished boot with replacement carpets where necessary

* It comes with the original & unused Jaguar toolkit

* There are no leaks anywhere

* The sunroof is fully operational

* The wheels have been refurbished and all tyres are as new

* Solent Blue paint and Isis Blue leather

* All switches & displays work as they should

* Engine purrs on idle and drives beautifully

* Great MOT history

* Original handbook & paperwork is present

* It's recorded on the XJ40 Register

* The rectangular headlights have been professionally replaced with twin rounds for improved night driving

* A gaiter on the steering rack had split so I had the whole thing removed, stripped & refurbished - it's essentially a new rack

* Mileage is currently 97209 and that's unlikely to increase much due to insurance limitations

* Very smooth automatic gearbox (with changes less discernible than my 2003 3. 0 XJ6!)

* It comes with the original Jaguar floor mats

* MOT until June 2024

Overall the car is in amazing condition; there are a few very, very fine scratches but none that are noticeable and the interior is near-perfect except for mild wear on the driver’s seat vertical.

During the time I've owned this 3. 6 Sovereign I've not used it much as the XJ6 was my daily driver. When I DO take it out it reminds me every time just how good it is and what incredible build quality the Sovereign was.
