The Jaguar XJ40 was manufactured between 1986 and 1994. Officially unveiled on 8th October 1986 it was an all new redesign of the XJ to replace the Series III, although the two model ranges were sold concurrently until the Series III was discontinued in 1992. Lister Cars Limited took the standard XJ12 and offered a comprehensive range of upgrades including engine upgrade at a cost of £28,350, Brembo brakes £7,645, retrim front seats £3,950 Lister bodykit £6,035 and Lister 18-inch wheels £5,888. All of these and more are fitted to this XJ12 resulting in a stunning example.
Originally registered on 1st August 1993, this Jaguar XJ12 was modified by Lister and, given that each vehicle is a bespoke service, the owner at the time spent £69,389 having the car modified. With superb performance from the twin-supercharged V12 engine which is mated to a six speed gearbox, stopping power is supplied via Brembo brakes. The black coachwork of this Jaguar is in unmarked condition as is the cream Connolly hide interior. The powerful V12 engine burst into life when requested and sounded delightful, courtesy of the sports exhaust. We are advised she drives very well and could be described as a ‘wolf in sheep's clothing’. Offering comfort, style, power and prestige all in one package this Lister was featured in the May 2009 edition of Jaguar World magazine. This very low mileage XJ12 must be one of the finest examples offered for sale anywhere today and will grace any collection.
