Lot 261 - 1995 Jaguar Sovereign (3.2 litre)
|Odometer reading||75,000 miles|
|Result||Sold - £1,008|
The Jaguar XJ (X300) series was manufactured between 1994 and 1997. It was the first XJ produced entirely under Ford ownership and can be considered an evolution of the outgoing XJ40 generation. Like all previous XJ generations, it features the Jaguar independent rear suspension arrangement. The design of the X300 placed emphasis on improved build quality, improved reliability and a return to traditional Jaguar styling elements. At the car's launch in October 1994 at the Paris Motor Show, Jaguar marketing material made use of the phrase ‘New Series XJ’ to describe the X300 models. The X300 series represented the result of a £200 million facilities renewal program by Ford. The program introduced state-of-the-art automated body welding robots manufactured by Nissan and was intended to show the future direction of the British auto industry. To honour Jaguar's achievements, Queen Elizabeth II visited the Browns Lane factory in December 1994 and ordered a British Racing Green X305 Daimler Double Six for her personal use. This was the Queen's second visit to Jaguar's Coventry factory since 1956.
This four litre Jaguar Sovereign has only covered 75,000 miles from new and was first registered on 1st August 1995. Finished in Kingfisher Blue coachwork with full leather interior. Our vendor has owned this automatic gearbox example since 2018 and it is supplied with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate which expires in November 2023. A car that requires some cosmetic TLC but a car that was a favourite of CEO’s and the Royal family alike, these are sure to be future classic.
Guide Price £4,000-£6,000
