“Lonely at the top also has its charms.”

With this statement Jaguar Netherlands described the unique position of the top model of that time, the XJ12 Series 3. And the Jaguar XJ12 definitely was the top. At that time there were only a handful of cars that had the same level of comfort, luxury and charm as the XJ12. Even compared with today’s cars this Jaguar was ahead of its time. Passengers really do not have anything to wish for. Next to the large seats in the front no shortcomings were allowed in the back of the car either. Back in those days in a car like this a business man was sometimes driven by a chauffeur instead of getting behind the wheel himself.

The Jaguar XJ12 tranquilly takes its passengers to their destination. It seems as if it does not cost the car any effort. And in case the driver is in a hurry, the whisper-quiet engine will be able to handle it. When stepping on the gas hard a subtle ruffle can be heard in the background and then without realizing it you are driving at a dizzying speed. Also the smoothly shifting automatic transmission has no problem making this happen almost silently. In the eighties this car was far ahead of its time. Today there are hardly any cars produced that are providing such a comfortable ride.

This specific car has been completely restored to its former glory (and maybe even a little bit better). It is like new. Everything has been done and no expenses spared, which in particular the huge pile of invoices makes clear. Everything has been done by Van Laar Classics at the end of the nineties and since then the car has been driven a mere 7,409 km. It therefore is a unique car that could easily be driven on a daily basis. These days, when do we still see a large saloon fitted with a magnificent 5.3 litre V12 engine, a smooth automatic gear box and an incredibly soft and comfortable suspension? Cars are not made like this anymore. This unique car still has it all. The future owner of this car will be spoilt time and again when he drives the car.

We would like to invite you to take a closer look at this unique and state-of-the-art Jaguar XJ12. Please make an appointment with Ruurt Georg, e-mail, telephone number 0031 30 8507500
