Pedigree Motorcars is proud to offer this beautiful 1987 Jaguar XJ12 Vanden Plas. For details and information please contact Ken Baker at 561-866-1601.
Pedigree Motorcars is known for seeking out the finest affordable classic cars. There are several cars that we have had our eye open for but thought we would never find. This Jaguar is one of them. The series III XJ Series was sold in the US until 1987 and was only offered with a six cylinder engine. They were fabulous cars and the six cylinder was wonderfully smooth. However, nothing compares to a Jaguar V 12, nothing.
We were recently made aware of this beautiful Canadian spec 1987 XJ12 Vanden Plas. Originally sold in Quebec, it was sold in 2011 through a US Dealer to its second owner in Florida. In 2016 it went to his third owner in Indiana.
This XJ12 has been lovingly taken care if throughout its life. It's in amazing condition and is highly original. The interior is magnificent with no cracking in the wood and the leather seats are still soft and show little wear.
The exterior is equally impressive. The Black paint gleams, as does all of the brightwork. As expected, there is no rust to be found. This is one of the most impressive series III XJ's we have ever found. But it's most special because it's a XJ12. These were rare cars in the countries they were sold new in. Very few made it into the US. We were fortunate to have found this exceptionally rare XJ12.
In the past five years only 2000 km have been put on this Jaguar. As with all of our cars at Pedigree, a thorough inspection and service was performed. Our Jaguars are only serviced by the Jaguar Doctor in Boca Raton, Florida. To get this car ready for sale we had performed

Everything that was needed to make this Jaguar reliable and safe was performed. This is one of the finest driving series III Jaguars we have ever driven. If you have never experienced a V 12 in one of these iconic sedans, it's something you should sample. This V 12 is the finest driving series III we have ever driven. It is unbelievably smooth, quiet and powerful. The torque from the V 12 is immediate and impressive. This truly is an impressive driving Jaguar.
Since this Jaguar is Canadian spec, it's still retains its speedometer and odometer in kilometers. Please note, this car has 129,000 KM, not miles. It also has windshield wipers on the headlights. It also has an engine block heater, something we have not tried out here in Florida.
At Pedigree Motorcars we show cars by appointment only. To arrange a private showing of this beautiful Jaguar XJ12, contact Ken Baker at 561-866-1601.
