  • In single family private ownership from new
  • Just 22,640 miles from new
  • One of the finest examples we have encountered
  • An ideal addition to any private collection
  • Original owner’s wallet, handbooks and service book
  • Supplied new by Henlys Jaguar of Chester

Since the late 1960s the historic Daimler marque has been used by Jaguar to denote the most luxurious version of its XJ saloons and therefore has an extra exclusivity. The Daimler 3.6 was launched in October 1986 as long-awaited successor to the much loved Series III featuring squarer, more modern lines incorporating a host of sophisticated electronics. Standard engine was a new 221bhp 3590cc 6-cylinder unit as the V12 offered in the Series III could not be accommodated under the bonnet. With traditional Daimler fluted radiator grille and boot plinth plus separate contoured rear seating, electrically adjustable heated front seats, air conditioning, cruise control and walnut interior which Jaguar do so well, the Daimler was a worthy top-of-the-range model. In addition to being a luxurious passenger car the Daimler was an excellent driver's car with a superb ride mated to precise handling. Launched concurrently with the excellent new BMW 7-Series, period road testers were divided as to which was the better, although for many the Daimler's sumptuousness over the more clinical BMW won the day. The 3.6 (like all XJ40 3.6 models) was replaced by a new 4.0 litre version in September 1989.

Still wearing the number plates fitted by supplying dealer Henly’s of Chester and first registered as ‘K205 KFM’ on 19th August 1992, this remarkable Daimler has been in single family ownership from new. Having covered less than 23,000 miles over the past thirty-one years – an average of just 740 miles per annum – it is among the nicest XJ40 generation cars that we have encountered. Pleasingly retaining its original owner’s wallet, manuals and service book (the latter recording eight stamps), the luxury saloon also comes with a Henly’s umbrella, factory tool kit, period Jaguar VHS tape, two keys and seemingly every old tax disc! Treated to sundry new suspension bushes in 2017 and benefiting from a recent oil and filter change, the Daimler exudes understated elegance in Jet Black with Magnolia leather upholstery. Worthy of close inspection, ‘K205 KFM’ surely deserves a place in a private or museum collection?
