Footnotes

  • Outwardly distinguishable from its Coventry sibling only by the marque's traditional fluted radiator grille and different badging, the Daimler Sovereign that appeared a year after the Jaguar XJ6's launch was in effect a top-of-the-range model, with most optional extras incorporated as standard. In 1986 Jaguar grasped the nettle bravely with the launch of an entirely new XJ6 - code-named 'XJ40'. The new XJ's outward similarity to the old one masked a host of improvements: a simpler bodyshell constructed from fewer panels, new advanced anti-corrosion technology, increased passenger and luggage space, and revised suspension giving superior ride and handling. In addition, two new six-cylinder engines replaced the long-running XK series; these were the 3.6-litre, 24-valve, twin-cam AJ6 already seen in the XJ-S and a 2.9-litre single-cam unit. Top speed of the 3.6-litre version was an excellent 136mph, with a best fuel consumption of around 35mpg.

    We are advised by the vendor that this luxurious 3.6-litre Sovereign was sold new in Oman and has had only one owner. A total of only 20,739 miles is currently displayed on the odometer and the Daimler is described as in generally excellent condition, driving 'as new'. Finished in red with matching interior, the car is offered with sundry bills and service history, current MoT and Swansea V5. A rare opportunity to acquire a little used example of this appreciating modern classic.
