I’ll have to try and find the build date out when I get a chance.
I can only assume it’s an early V12 that for some reason was not registered until March 1994.
I guess I’ll need a heritage certificate for it then. Know what I’ll be asking for Christmas!
Perhaps Jag Heritage can also enlighten me about its early days as a Jaguar company car too.

1994 model year was introduced August 1993 just after the annual shutdown ? from Chassis 687219 up to the last car 708757 ( M94 FVC ) produced in May 1994.
Using those numbers and your chassis number you could take a stab at which month it was built.

I have a list of chassis numbers from JDHT dated 2012 showing 12cyl introduced 1993/02 chassis 647582(?)
Even that has a question mark so they arent sure either!!
It also lists the dates 1993/02 with chassis number 674609 & 1993/09 with chassis number 687219 for all XJ40 models.
So your car is defiantely between Jan 1993 and Sept 1993
Also my XJS is in the same position....its on a P plate so a 1996 reg number but the chassis number show it is a 1995/01 model!!!
