Jaguar XJ12 Sovereign V12 checkbook only 56t Km collector's vehicle (1994)
|JP||🇩🇪 75173 Pforzheim||Dark Grey Metallic|
As early as 1980, Jaguar thought about how and when the current XJ6 could be replaced. The engineers further developed the flat and beautiful sedan under the internal code XJ40 (because it was planned with a four-liter engine, which came later) with the aim of changing as little as possible of the shape and style in terms of wood and leather. The wheelbase also remained unchanged compared to its predecessor, but the car grew by almost three centimeters in length and width. The shape was tightened somewhat, the hood no longer had bumps above the headlights and instead of two fuel caps, only one hole was needed for the tank nozzle. In addition to the six-cylinder variants, the new Jaguar XJ40 was also sold with V12. Compared to its predecessors, the XJ40 was much stiffer and shone with better wiring, the sheets were now also zinc-coated.
A Jaguar XJ40 with twelve-cylinder engine will now also be released for auction in this auction. The big cat from Great Britain dates from the year of construction 1994 and was first registered on February of the same year, the Jaguar is a re-import from Japan. Overall, the sedan with the VIN SAJJKKLS4AP676303 has only 2 holders and impresses with its matching numbers. There are 2 vehicle keys to the car, a complete history is verifiable due to a fully enclosed checkbook. The Jaguar XJ40 does not yet have H approval. On request, a full acceptance can be made in the event of a successful sale. This must then be clarified with the seller.
Dark grey metallic is the paint colour of this Jaguar XJ40 – it has been partially renewed over the years. However, a look around the car conveys an even and rich appearing coloring, and the gap dimensions sit well. Rust on the body and gross damage are not present. No traces of a parking bumper can be seen on the bumpers, the entire car is accident-free, the seller told us. All trim parts on the vehicle are present and the chrome applications are in brilliant condition. In addition, the windows present themselves in a scratch-free and crack-free condition, striking is the tint starting from the rear side windows. Also tinted are the rear lights of the Jaguar sedan in perfect condition. External modifications are obviously not detectable.
On the car are the original 16 inch alloy wheels, which are chrome-plated, mounted together with Yokohama tires in good condition. The rims are in very good condition. There are no complaints about the brakes, and no deviations from the original condition can be detected in the area of the chassis.
Plenty of light gray leather adorns the interior of the Jaguar XJ40: Except for a few minor age-appropriate traces of use in the interior of the sedan, no abnormalities are recorded. Noble wood veneer, which is present on the door panels, on the dashboard and in the center console, provides a luxurious ambience in addition to the leather used in large dimensions. In addition to power steering, there are also central locking, power windows, heated seats, air conditioning, ABS, cruise control, an original radio, rear roller blinds, and integrated folding tables in the front seat backrests on board. All equipment elements work without any problems.
The 56,400 kilometers read on the digital speedometer can be easily traced on the one hand by a complete Jaguar service booklet, on the other hand by a very extensive documentation. In addition, the complete on-board folder is enclosed. All instruments in the interior of the XJ40 have a careful function.
The engine compartment is filled by a V12 engine with a huge 6.0-liter displacement, which provides exemplary smoothness. By means of a 4-speed automatic, the gears are engaged flawlessly and without disturbing background noise. The powertrain works cleanly and without visible complaints. The last customer service was done at mileage 55,700. Underbody technically, the Jaguar XJ40 is free of any rust and any complaints. Overall, the underside of the twelve-cylinder reflects the good condition of the exterior and interior.
