The original low-slung silhouette of the XJ is becoming a rare sight on the roads, and this Daimler XJ40 is a beautiful reminder of just what we’re missing.
This 1989 example in Bordeaux Red is rather special – not just because of its superb condition and attractive colour combination, but because this is, in fact, a pre-production press car that was used for the 1990 model year.
Featuring the revised and much-improved dashboard as well as Doeskin leather with red piping and red carpets, the interior of this XJ40 is sublime. There are rear picnic tables, sun blinds, electric seats plus a host of other Daimler refinements.
Being a press car, only the very best engine would do, also, and that comes in the form of the rare 4.0 straight-6 which has just 67k miles. Other upgrades include chrome side mouldings and Michelin 390 alloy wheels which have new tyres all around.
This 3 owner XJ40 (Jaguar listed as the first) is remarkable in its own right given its superb condition and specification, but is even more special given its historical significance.
