The XJ40’s as code names by Jaguar arrival on the motoring scene in September 1986 had been eagerly anticipated. Its launch had been in the public domain since at least the late 1970s, and the press had been gradually whipping up a frenzy about its impending arrival. So, when the XJ40 was finally revealed to the world, there was palpable relief – most notably from Jaguar executives and salesmen who had something new to sell. The fact its design so clearly harked back to the XJ Series 3 was met with some puzzlement in the press – but customers loved it.
Jaguar produced a new AJ6 slant-six twin-cam was clearly a step forward after the old XK in terms of efficiency. Originally 2.9 and 3.6 were later upgraded to 3.2 and 4.0 litres.
The Sovereign model came equipped with significantly more features than the base XJ6. Included was air conditioning, headlamp washers, a six-speaker sound system, anti-lock braking system, and inlaid burl walnut wood trim. The headlamps fitted were the rectangular single units. The window frames were made from stainless steel
Jaguar XJ40 was possibly the best car in the world when it was launched… even if it set Jaguar down a course of Retro design that lasted until 2008!

This example is a 1993 Sovereign 4.0 litre with Kingfisher blue pearl coachwork. This is possibly one of the best colours. Purchased some 14 years ago by myself the current owner a very keen Jaguar enthusiast. Supplied by Chiltern Jaguar of Bovingdon, dealer plates and rear window sticker still fitted. I have owned many XJ6’s over the years and this car was the best example I could find back then, despite having covered just over 100K at that time. This example retains all of the original panels and has only had very minimal paint work in the past to my knowledge. As you would expect there are very small parking dings and some very small stone chips around any vehicle of this age, however it still looks amazing. Jaguar back in 1993 was in the ownership of Ford and this car benefits from some improvements from that era. Production of the XJ40 ended in 1994 the last of these car are far better built, feature galvanised body shells and exterior panels that did reduce body corrosion. This car was purchased with the intention of keeping it for a long period of time hence it has been extensively rust proofed, this was a lengthy process with interior and trim removed to access all the known XJ rust traps. All wheel wells boot floor etc have had extra rust protection and this has allowed the car to remain in remarkable condition in my ownership. Most of the exterior bright work is stainless steel though the bumpers are chrome these once again where removed rust protected and refitted remaining in very good order.
Mechanically this is a fantastic example with comprehensive Jaguar main dealer history until my purchase then it’s been services by myself regardless of cost using only genuine Jaguar parts with very regular oil, ATF, coolant and brake fluid changes. A full new Jaguar exhaust system was fitted a few years ago and two new tyres.
Inside the car has Magnolia leather with Isis blue piping, an option chosen when new, it’s also has some very rare factory optional extras as the car was supplied by Jaguar to a well known celebrity owner during the filming of his television series in the mid 1990’s.
These are :-
Boot mounted C.D. autochanger.
In-Car Jaguar telephone mounted in the centre arm rest.
Rear reading light fitted to the C-post.
Rear picnic tables and full size not split rear seat.
Rear sunblind
Heated front windscreen
Heated front seats.
Once again this is a used example, however the interior has stood up well over time everything is clean and tidy the seat faces have seen regular leather feed and treatment meaning they remain soft and supple. This example was built in the last few months before the passenger air bag was added and the popular and useful glove box remains. The memory seats work including the adjustable head restraints. Most of these cars suffer with damage to the piping on the driver’s seat this example is no different it could be improved of repaired however. A very high specification indeed on this particular example that remains stunning.
The XJ has only ever been a second car remaining the majority of time in dry storage, some years not being used at all, full MOT history to prove it’s mileage and little use during my ownership can be checked. Over the current lockdown period the car has been re-commissioned in readiness for use or possible sale. The private number plate has been removed.
This car is offered for film hire, magazine shoots, advertising and photography work. Please call Richard for further information and other cars available.
