The 1992-1994 Jaguar XJ40 Vanden Plas Majestic was the LWB saloon of which only 121 vehicles were built. These cars began as SWB units, removed from the assembly line and stretched by Project Aerospace in Coventry. They were returned to Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations for hand finishing. The Vanden Plas was built for the US market but badged as Daimler for the European markets.

The Daimler/Vanden Plas models may be identified by the single rectangular headlamps, fluted radiator grill surround and boot lid plinth. The Daimler/Vanden Plas models were the highest level of luxury and elegance. They both were the ultimate grand tourers that epitomized the Jaguar brand. The Vanden Plas Majestic is a very rare and beautiful car.
