Jaguar grasped the nettle bravely in 1986 with the launch of an entirely new XJ6 - code-named XJ40. The new XJ's outward similarity to the old one masked a host of improvements: a simpler bodyshell constructed from fewer panels, new advanced anti-corrosion technology, increased passenger and luggage space, and revised suspension giving superior ride and handling. Two new six-cylinder engines replaced the long-running XK series; these were the 3.6-litre, 24-valve, twin-cam AJ6 already seen in the XJ-S and a 2.9-litre single-cam unit. In the early 1990s, these two were replaced by AJ16 24-valve units of 3.2 and 4.0 litres capacity, both of which would find their way into the updated X300 Series introduced for 1995. This 4.0-litre XJ6 was supplied new by Appleyards of Glasgow to British Linen Bank Ltd, 4 Melville Street, Edinburgh. The accompanying service book records 12 stamps by Appleyards and others to February 2002 at 78,000 miles. Acquired by the Collection in June 2006, the car is described as in generally good condition and offered with current road fund licence, MoT to July 2012 and Swansea V5C registration document.
