1981 Daimler Sovereign Vanden Plas


1981 Daimler Sovereign Vanden Plas

Probably the best colour, Biscayne Blue, with buckskin leather.

Said to be production number 48 of less than 700 produced.

Described by Quentin Wilson as the prettiest of all the XJ series. Whilst I often disagree

with motoring journalists, I can't argue with him on this occasion.

This flagship model is fully loaded with all the recognised luxury refinements. 

Locally owned and entered.

On site now for viewing.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.

Thank you.
