Classic Spirit Reborn

Low mileage Jaguar XJ12 Series 3 Sovereign HE – FOR SALE

Blue Jaguar XJ12 Series 3 Sovereign 1983

This 1983 5.3L Series III XJ12 is in very good shape, with only 2 owners and just 18,750 miles since being fully restored by KWE in 2003. This particular Jaguar is a vital part of KWE’s heritage, based on the top of the range Jaguar XJ12, this was the second K2 turnkey car that KWE produced. “It was one of the cars that forged our providence in the early stages and It will always have a special place in our hearts.” This car has been meticulously restored, upgrading its performance and technology in the process, while maintaining the grand, luxurious feel of a classic Jag. KWE have installed our full upgraded suspension, brakes and steering renewal package. A full exterior bare metal re-spray was carried out in 2012 in the original colour. Finished in Jaguar Westminster blue, magnolia leather interior with blue piping, blue wool carpets and American Burr Walnut wood veneers. Engine and transmission are in extremely good condition since being extensively stripped and rebuilt, the automatic gearbox has been converted to a 4 speed auto, offering a smoother drive and a more responsive kickdown, making that V12 growl when you really need it.

Our client has been using the car daily to commute to and from London. He is very sad to let it go, having passed the job of finding a new owner on to KWE, he hopes we’ll find a buyer that will get the same pride and enjoyment out of it as he did. Here are a few words from the current owner:

“I count myself fortunate to have found KWE 10 years ago, and to have bought a K12 (Series 3 XJ Saloon). Apart from being a truly beautiful motor car which attracts smiling comments and thumbs up from little boys from 8 to 80, Scaramanga, as my twin daughters christened him, has been my daily drive for the past decade.  He has been a truly practical alternative to a modern car and a beloved member of the family who has given us great pleasure. When you meet people locally for the first time and they say “you don’t know who owns that beautiful old Jaguar do you, it brightens my morning every day when I see it”, you know you’re doing something right.  Thank you Chris and team for many happy years of motoring.”

The price of £23,000 reflects the very low mileage and excellent condition of this classic V12 luxury saloon
