Your problem is more likely a distributor-timing problem, than a carburator problem. The richness of the fuel acts like a constant choke, and the car runs fine until it warms up.
Once the car is warm, try manually advancing the spark. If that helps, then take the distributor to a repair shop that can tell you if the vacuum advance is working properly.
Remember, the spark must be +10 degrees advanced when cold.

this may be a sticking air flue meter take a matchstick .and push it into the hose this will let more air in if this works change the air flue meter

A wild guess - your crank speed sensor. But, with this level of malfunction, pull the codes. Buy a code reader (EOBD/OBD) from Ebay or go to a Jaguar dealer or any decent engine diagnostic center and they will tell you what is malfunctioning. The codes don't tell all the story, they just tell you what is out of tolerance - there could be a lot of things out just because one component is malfunctioning, so you need someone who has expertise with this engine.

Your first check must be hooking it up to retrieve the codes. There is no way possible to know what this is without these codes. There are about 40 different ABs codes this car can store.
