Our Jaguar XJ12 Series 2 5.3 Litre Coupe LHD example was built on the 16th October 1975 and dispatched the following year on the 3rd of March 1976 to the well-known British Leyland German distributor, Brüggemann, who were based in Düsseldorf, Germany. A wonderful Passport to Service contains no less than 14 stamps, all from the same supplying Jaguar BLMC – Vertragshändler (official BLMC Jaguar dealer) who delivered the car on the 2nd September 1976 to Herr Dr (med) Johannes Becker from Braunschweig. The first owner maintained the car beautifully with an immaculate service history with the final stamp entered on the 22nd February 1988 at 97,140 kilometers. *It is noted in the records that on the 24th March 1977, at 9900 kilometers, the car received a new Tachometer showing 063 km’s with the work carried out by the same supplying dealership, therefore, the total kilometers are almost 10k more that indicated.* The car would then change hands some three times between April 1989 and June 1996 with the 4th owner retaining the car for an impressive 22 years before embarking on a sympathetic restoration in 2017/2018, culminating in a comprehensive 22 page Valuation Report (Gutachten) from February 2018 which values the car at €45.000 and Condition 2 (Zustand 2). The 5th owner purchased the car in April 2018 and has mechanically maintained the car superbly well, including a complete air conditioning overhaul and almost €10.000 invested to ensure a smooth running V12 example. Both sets of keys are present along with the cars original book-pack and all-important Passport to Service. These cars are quite a rare sight, these days, and this one even rarer as a German specification car.
