I bought the car in Rome two years ago from the first owner. It is still in original condition. Paint is the first. I did a lot of small and big jobs: sky lining, brakes, heating radiator, electric antenna, rear lights ...
Today the kilometers are 130000.

Welcome aboard.
Your car looks superb. To say it registered in Rome! For anyone who has seen what most cars look like that drive around Italian cities, your car has had a miraculous survival.

Is yours the only XJ40 in Sardinia? I can’t imagine there are many there! I have visited there a few years ago, but did not see anything remotely interesting car wise.

Thank you for appreciation. Mine is not the only Xj40 in Sardinia, probably there are other 3 or 4 . :D That's why I have a lot of problems with the service ... Not even the local Jaguar dealer knows the model well. I made a request for help here on the forum and I hope someone can help me.
Greetings
Carlo
