Although, in six‑cylinder form, Jaguar's Series 3 XJ saloon shape was discontinued with the launch of the more square‑rigged XJ40 model in 1987, it continued as a 12‑cylinder model until 1992. The Sovereign name was also 'borrowed' from sister marque Daimler marque to denote the top‑of‑the‑line Jaguar variant.

This example was inherited by the registered keeper in 2018 from his father‑in‑law, who had purchased it in 1996. He'd had extensive bodywork done on it during 1998 when it reached 91,435 miles (for which there is a photographic record); however, we're advised that the 111,616‑mile car still has its original floors and sills.

The well‑organised history folder contains the current V5, a large stack of invoices totalling many thousands spent over the years, MoTs dating back to 1994 (which verify the recorded mileage), photos, notes, tax discs, newsletters, and other sundry paperwork, including hand‑written notes and diagrams. There's also the original document wallet with owner's handbook, electrical data chart, service book (stamped up to 75,627 miles in 1996), maintenance booklet, specification sheet, pre‑delivery inspection checklist and sound system guide. However, what really stands out is the owner's 'diary' ‑ a handwritten log of the car's adventures from August 1996 (at 79,500 miles) through to August 2014 (108,524 miles). The chronicle ranges from jobs such as checking the thermostats in a saucepan of hot water to major jobs such as the suspension, brakes and steering restoration and upgrade from December 2005 to January 2006. There's also a CD detailing all this work.    

The Jaguar's MoT is valid until August 2022 and it has recently been serviced, at a cost of nearly £800. The car's condition is very good inside and out, with both the grey leather and woodwork in the cabin presenting very well.
