For those who couldn't get enough of the allure of Jaguar in the 90s, there was always the higher specification in the form of the Daimler Double Six 5. 3 V12 Series 3!

From 1983, the Series 3 models were restructured. The original Daimler Sovereign name was now used for luxury versions of the XJ6 4. 2 liter and the XJ12. The two twelve-cylinder Daimler models, the HE and the Vanden Plas, were replaced by one model, the Double-Six. Therefore, from 1983 to 1992, the two twelve-cylinder models, the Jaguar Sovereign and the Daimler Double-Six, existed. There were minor differences in the North American market, where only a single twelve-cylinder model was sold, with the Jaguar Van den Plas emblem but equipped to a standard comparable to the Daimler. Later, this was discontinued in the US but remained available in Canada.

Towards the end of production, only about 1, 500 Series 3 V12 cars were produced annually, as the most exclusive and expensive Jaguar & Daimler sedan models.

Our example? Just as solid as in fully three-piece tweed for the cocktail hour. Originally delivered in Switzerland. Includes stamped booklets and has not missed a single service. Possesses every available option and always ready for the inevitable rides to the golf club! Are you also eager to park the 5. 3 V12 in your driveway and admire it with a glass of cognac under your belt? Us too!
