1987 Jaguar XJ12 Sovereign Solent Blue Full Mechanical Rebuild
The Pininfarina designed Jaguar XJ series 3 was the pinnacle of the ground breaking XJ range. And when specified with the 5.3 litre V12 engine put all others in the shade with its smooth power delivery. Truly an iron fist in a velvet glove.
This car has had the most comprehensive mechanical overhaul carried out by ourselves. The engine was rebuilt with two brand new jaguar supplied cylinder heads. The automatic gearbox and torque converter also rebuilt. Together with front & rear axles, brakes & suspension, cooling system and air conditioning system. Very little mileage has been covered since this work was completed. The car was serviced last in August 2016. The owner is extremely fastidious and always kept the car in tip-top condition.
The dark Solent blue metallic paint contrasts beautifully with light doe-skin leather upholstery. Factory alloy wheels and optional chrome wheel arch trims set the car off. These Sovereign V12's are a true modern classic and this car should not be compared to cheap the examples on the market, that need tens of thousands of dollars spending on them.
