This European-German specification Sovereign appears to have changed hands on a number of occasions between 1987 and 2003, before finally finding a discerning owner who bought the car for a mere €1500! He would then set about restoring it to its former glory with a wonderful array of invoices and letters to suppliers in the neat history file outlining the cars new venture. Credit must be given where it’s due as his persistent style clearly set the car up well for what one can only describe as a beautiful restoration journey. Sadly, however, as funds started to drain, and a sudden change in personal circumstances, the car is sold to one of the best restorers in north Germany. Cathedral Classics have bought several cars from them in the past and can’t wait to hear what they have in store whenever we hear of one of their new restorations. An exacting team is an understatement when it comes to their restoration prowess and here is a perfect example where literally hundreds of hours have been invested in this superb V12 Sovereign. The car could not have been in better hands, but, the process was sadly delayed by several plus months due to the final Brexit (debacle) transition periods, where parts were intercepted delayed by Customs in both the UK and Germany, until finally being released. But it was worth the wait as the end result is just astonishing. Any new potential owner should be treasuring this car and keeping it for a very long time!
