Footnotes

  • Although introduced with XK six-cylinder power under the bonnet, it had always been Jaguar's intention that its XJ6 flagship would accommodate the new all-alloy V12 engine that had debuted in the E-Type sports car, and the resulting XJ12 duly appeared in July 1972. With a top speed of over 135mph courtesy of the 5.3-litre V12's 272bhp, the newcomer combined superlative high performance with a level of luxury unmatched by many a less-accommodating grand tourer costing several times as much. The name 'Double-Six' was chosen for the Daimler version, evoking memories of a great 12-cylinder model from the marque's past. Capable of wafting its occupants along at three-figure speeds in considerable luxury and almost complete silence, the Double-Six and its Jaguar equivalent remained in production until 1993, becoming the world's most successful twelve-cylinder saloons.

    Currently displaying a total of 49,578 miles on the odometer, this Double-Six Series III was supplied new to Travel Promotions Ltd, London in November 1987 and was retained by the company chairman for his personal use after retirement. The lady vendor's husband, effectively the car's second owner, purchased the Daimler in 2002. Regularly serviced and MoT'd - since acquisition by Maygrove Motors annually – the car benefits from the renewal of many parts and is described as in generally very good condition. Accompanying documentation consists of the original service booklet, current MoT/tax, V5C and expired MoT certificates verifying the recorded mileage. Viewing highly recommended.
