What is the background of the make / model?

Jaguar produced this model between 1989 and 2002.

Jaguar made its name by producing a series of successful eye-catching sports cars, the Jaguar XK120 (1948–54), Jaguar XK140 (1954–57), Jaguar XK150 (1957–61), and Jaguar E-Type (1961–75). Founder William Lyons' mantra of "value for money" was intended to be embedded across its full model range. Jaguar was a fan of a slogan and for many years its sales slogan was "Grace, Space, Pace”.

In 2008, Jaguar was sold to Tata Motors. Five years later, Tata Motors merged Jaguar with Land Rover to form Jaguar Land Rover the name the brand remains under to this day.

How common is a Sovereign 4.0?

According to data from the DVLA, the UK licensing authority, in 2022 there were 159 licensed vehicles alive and kicking on UK roads. There were also 623 vehicles that are SORNd - in other words not currently registered for the road. Note: that data is for this model and all of its sub-models.

Building on that, we've also seen plenty of these go under the hammer at auctions around the world, 52 to be precise. It's among the 15% most common collector cars to sell at auction.

Of those 52 times the model has gone to auction 39 have sold. In other words, this model sells on 75% of times it goes to auction - that's below the average sell-through rate we traditionally see.
