First off this car has spent sometome in Japan – dont be alarmed by this its actaully a good thing because generally they were much more treasured and looked after than those that remained here, plus are much less prone to rust because of the climate (less salt on roads)

This car was manufactured in 1992 and spent sometime in Japan before being exported back to the UK. Clearly in Japan she was very much cherished and enjoyed the lack of rain.

The Double Six is a fast car, as it should be with a 5.3-litre, 313bhp V12 engine, and the power delivery is matched to an equally smooth automatic transmission. The Double Six was far cheaper than the cheapest Rolls-Royce or Bentley in its day but oozes much the same opulence and is virtually as well made

Engine 5,993cc. V12 cylinders, 313bhp at 5,350rpm. Four-speed automatic gearbox, rear-wheel drive. Top speed 152mph, 0-60 in 7.5 seconds. Fuel consumption 14-19mpg.

Polished walnut and soft leather abound, of course, and rear passengers have plenty of toys to play with. Each rear seat reclines electrically, and a further set of controls on the back of the front passenger seat even allows the left rear passenger to move the front seat.

In late 1979, the Jaguar XJ/Daimler Sovereign was facelifted, and re-named as the XJ Series III. Using the long-wheelbase version of the car, the XJ incorporated a subtle redesign by Pininfarina. Externally, the most obvious changes over the SII were the thicker and more incorporated rubber bumpers with decorative chrome only on the top edge, flush door handles for increased safety, a one-piece front door glass without a separate 1/4 light, a grille with only vertical vanes, reverse lights moved from the boot plinth to the larger rear light clusters and a revised roofline with narrower door frames and increased glass area. There were three engine variants, including the 5.3 lt V12, the 4.2 lt straight-six and 3.4 L straight-six. The larger six-cylinder, and V12 models incorporated Bosch fuel injection which was made under licence by Lucas. 132,952 Series III cars were built, 10,500 with the V12 engine.

This example of the Daimler Double Six is presented in Metallic Dorchester Grey with contrasting Full Doeskin Leather Interior. The car features Air Conditioning, Cruise Control, Electric Windows/Mirrors, Power Steering, Central Locking, Pioneer Stereo CD and AUX/USB Input, Centre Armrest, Lumbar Support, Headlamp Washers, 15in Jaguar Alloys.

The car has comprehensive Service History in Japanese, a new MOT, and has just been serviced. The car was imported back from Japan in 2016. MOT’d until April 2020 withou advisories

The balance of the service history looks really good – I say looks because much of the stamped book is in Japanese and sadly our Japanese is not that good but we have listed the service intervals other work as we understand them below all in Kilometers. Please note some of these will be Shaken being the name of the vehicle inspection program in Japan for motor vehicle, which by all account is much more rigorous than our MOT. BUT thsi leist demonstrates hwo well this car has been looked after.
