Footnotes

  • Launched to much acclaim in 1968, the XJ6 refined concepts embodied by previous Jaguar saloons to create a car to rival the best offered by Mercedes-Benz. The six-cylinder XK engine was available in either 2.8- or 4.2-litre capacities initially, the latter capable of propelling the luxuriously appointed XJ6 to a top speed of 120mph-plus, while there was a choice of either four-speed manual (usually with overdrive) or three-speed automatic transmission. The prohibitive expense of getting its two-door pillar-less bodyshell to meet United States safety regulations meant that the Coupé version never went on sale in the USA. Consequently the model is one of the rarest of the XJ family, being produced between 1975 and 1977 only, and is becoming increasingly sought after by Jaguar collectors.
    One of only 6,505 4.2-litre Coupés built, this automatic-transmission example has been in the current ownership for the past eight years. Approximately 20,000 miles have been covered during this time (out of circa 86,500 in total) and all MoT certificates relating to the present ownership are available. Fully serviced and fitted with a stainless-steel exhaust system, the car is offered with current MoT/road fund licence and Swansea V5 document for the potentially valuable registration mark ‘TOM 308S’.
