"I am very pleased with my 'new' Daimler, a 1959 Majestic whom I call 'Dawne'. I acquired her in October from you and the transaction, which involved the sale of my previous Daimler, 'Juliet', went very well, even if it inevitably took a while for so specialised a car as a 1956 Daimler 104 to be sold at a satisfactory price. I was impressed with your courtesy and efficiency throughout. While I miss Juliet, her replacement was everything that you claimed, and when I took Dawne on a round trip to Christchurch and Akaroa, she went like a dream and I managed 12.8l/100 km from her, which is pretty good for a car of that size and age. I look forward to enjoying her in the years to come. Thank you!"Mark Stocker, Dunedin, New Zealand
Development work on the XJ40 started back in 1973, with first thoughts going back even further than that. So, with a protracted gestation period of more than 15 years, Jaguar's much-vaunted (when new) XJ40 was going to have to be good.
The XJ40 was great to drive and the 3.6-litre versions were vastly improved and have genuine classic appeal.
These cars are an entertaining mixture of old-school styling and cutting edge dynamics. Not to mention that improved refinement and effortlessness. The same basic car would go on to form the 1994 X300 replacement.
