In these he referred to the car as the finest Jaguar

An unusual feature, inherited the Jaguar Mark X, was the provision of fuel tanks, positioned on side of the boot / trunk, and using two separately lockable caps: one on the top of each wing the rear wheel arches.

In 1970 it was announced that the Model 8 automatic transmission, the XJ6 had featured since 1968, be replaced on the 4.2 litre-engined XJ6 with a Model 12 unit. The new transmission now had different forward positions via the selector lever, which enabled performance oriented to hold lower ratios at revs in order to achieve acceleration. Greatly improved quality was also claimed for the new

In 1972 the option of a long-wheelbase providing a modest increase in leg for passengers in the back, became

The XJ12 version was announced in 1972, featuring simplified treatment, and powered by a 5.3 L V12 engine to a Borg Warner Model The car as presented at that time was the only mass-produced 12-cylinder car, and, with a top around 140 mph (225 km/h) as the full four-seater available in the today. Although it had, the car’s launch, been the intention that the XJ would the twelve-cylinder engine, its installation was a tight fit, and providing cooling had evidently been a for the engineers designing the installation.

louvres such as those on the recently introduced twelve-cylinder E were rejected, but the XJ12 a complex cross-flow radiator into two separated horizontal and supported with coolant tanks at each end: the fan was geared to rotate at 1¼ times the of the engine rpm, subject to a which cut in at a (fan) speed of rpm. The fuel system a relief valve that fuel to the tank when in the leads to the carburetters exceeded 1.5 psi in to reduce the risk of vapour occurring at the engine’s high temperature, while the car’s unusually, benefited from its own controlled cooling fan.

The Jaguar XJ12, launched the summer of 1972, featured a grille. 3,235 of these generation XJ12s were As with the six-cylinder cars, an version, this time the Daimler Double-Six, became later, reviving the Daimler name of 1926–1938.

XJ Series II Edit

Jaguar XJ Series II

referred to as the Series II, the XJ line was in Autumn 1973 for the 1974 year. The 4.2 L I-6 XJ6 (most popular in the Kingdom) and the 5.3 L V12 XJ12 were with an addition of a 3.4 L (3,442 cu in) version of the XK engine available 1975.

The Series II models known for their poor quality, which was attributed to being part of the British group along with labour union relations that plagued most of England in the same time and to problems inherent in the design of Lucas-sourced components.

Initially the II was offered with two wheelbases, but at the London Motor Show announced the withdrawal of the ‘standard version: subsequent saloons/sedans all the extra 4 inches (10 cm) of passenger length hitherto featured on the ‘long-wheelbase’ model.[7] By this the first customer deliveries of the coupe, which retained the ‘standard’ wheelbase (and had already been formally more than a year were only months

Visually, Series II cars are from their predecessors by front bumpers to meet US safety regulations, which a smaller grille, complemented by a additional inlet directly the bumper. The interior received a update, including simplified and a/c systems to address criticisms of the and not very effective Series I

In April 1975, the North Series II got a slightly revised set of bumpers which had rubber covering the full length of the with embedded turn at each end. In 1976, the American cars also got the of electronic fuel injection in the of Zenith-Stromberg carburettors.

In May 1977, it was announced that transmission version of the twelve-cylinder would be fitted with a Motors three-speed THM 400 transmission in of the British built Borg-Warner used hitherto.[8] The 1978 UK range included the Jaguar XJ XJ 4.2, XJ 5.3, Daimler 4.2, Double-Six 5.3, Vanden Plas 4.2, Vanden Plas 5.3.

In New knock-down kits of the Series II assembled locally by the New Zealand Corporation (NZMC) at their plant. In the last year of in New Zealand (1978), a special (XJ6-SLE) model was produced featured half leather, dralon wide pleat vinyl roof, chrome wheels and air conditioning as standard. New produced models featured in km/h, and the black vinyl sewn onto the carpets in the footwells featured the British ‘L’ logo.

Though production of the Series II ended in a number were produced in Town, South Africa 1981.

A total of 91,227 II models were produced, of them with the V12 engine.

XJ III 1979-1986 Edit

Jaguar XJ III

In late 1979, the XJ was facelifted and was known as the Series III. the long-wheelbase version of the car, the XJ6 a subtle redesign by Pininfarina.

the most obvious changes the SII were the thicker and more rubber bumpers with chrome only on the top edge, door handles for increased a one-piece front door without a separate 1/4 light, a with only vertical reverse lights moved the boot plinth to the larger light clusters and a revised with narrower door and increased glass area.

The short-wheelbase saloon and coupé had dropped during the final of the Series II XJ. The introduction of the Series III also saw the option of a sunroof and control for the first time on an XJ

The 1979 UK model range the Jaguar XJ6 3.4 4.2, XJ12 Daimler Sovereign 4.2 Double-Six 5.3 and Vanden Plas 4.2 Double-Six Plas 5.3.

In 1981 the 5.3 V12 received the new Michael May designed high compression cylinder engines and were badged this time onwards to as HE (High Efficiency) models.

In 1981 Daimler Sovereign and Six models received a minor upgrade for the 1982 model with features similar to Plas models. Also for the model year, a top spec Vanden Plas model was for the US market – a model still used today.

In 1982 the interior of all Series III underwent a minor update for the model year. A trip appeared for the first time and was as standard on V12 models. A new and much alloy wheel featuring distinctive circular holes was introduced, commonly known as the wheel.

In late 1983 and changes were made the Series III model range for the model year, with the name being transferred Daimler to a new top spec Jaguar the Jaguar Sovereign. A base Jaguar XJ12 was no longer with the V12 engine only offered as a Jaguar Sovereign HE or Double Six.

In total between 1968 and there were around XJ6 and XJ12 Jaguars produced.

1986-1994 Edit

Jaguar us spec versions had dual throughout production run.

The replacement for the Series XJ was code-named and development on the all-new car began in the 1970s (with small models being built as as 1972.) The project suffered a of delays due to problems at parent British Leyland and events as the 1973 oil crisis. The XJ40 was introduced in 1986 at the British Motor Show.

With the Jaguar began to place emphasis on build quality as as simplification of the XJ’s build With 25% fewer body pressings required versus the XJ, the new process also saved increased the stiffness of the chassis, and cabin noise.[citation needed] The new came with significantly styling, which was more and angular than the outgoing III. Individual round were replaced with units on the higher-specification cars. The received several modernizations as the switch to a digital instrument (although this was eventually in favor of analog instruments.)

The XJ40s are powered by the AJ6 inline-six which replaced the XK6 unit in earlier XJs. The new unit a four-valve, twin overhead cam In 1993, one year before production ended, the V12-powered and Daimler Double Six models reintroduced.

(X300/X308) 1994-2002

Jaguar XJ X300/308

The X300, in 1994, was stylistically intended to the image of the more curvaceous XJ. The front of the car was redesigned significantly to to four individual round that provided definition to the hood. Mechanically, it was similar to the that it replaced.

Six-cylinder are powered by the AJ16 inline-six which is a further enhancement of the AJ6 that uses an electronic ignition system. The V12 remained until the end of the X300 production in (although it ended one year in the United States market due to meeting OBD-II-related emissions

It was in X300 production that introduced the supercharged XJR, was the first supercharged road car by the company.

With the introduction of the generation in 1997 came a from the XJ6 and XJ12 nomenclature to reflecting the fact that the cars were powered by a new V8

The exterior styling of the X308 was to the X300 with minor such as a change to oval lenses and round fog lights. The was also updated to eliminate the binnacle used on the X300; three large gauges set into recesses in the walnut-faced in front of the driver.

The major change was the replacement of both the and V12 engines with new eight-cylinder in either 3.2L or 4.0L with 4.0L also in supercharged form. No manual was available, and all X308 models supplied with a five-speed gearbox.

X350/X358 2003-2009

Jaguar XJ X350/358

Although revisions (through the X300 particularly, the X308 updates) the Mark 2 competitive in some against its rivals, the basic dated back to 1986 meant the car was being outclassed and ground to its rivals, many of were now two generations advanced the original competitors of the Mark 2 needed]. For example, since the had been unveiled in 1986 (at the time as the BMW 7 Series E32), BMW had Mark 3 (E38) and Mark 4 versions of its 7 Series in 1994 and respectively – all while Jaguar was producing the Mk 2 XJ.

In early 2003, the third generation XJ (known as arrived in showrooms. While the exterior and interior styling traditional in appearance, the car was completely The new car also saw the return of the XJ6 badge, and it six-cylinder power, albeit in a

Although traditional in appearance, the car was highly technologically advanced: for it had an all-aluminium body that the car very light compared to bringing improvements in performance, and economy. Larger all round and the new car offered much improved and luggage space.

The V8 engine was in larger 3.5 and 4.2 litre sizes as as a supercharged 4.2 Litre. The car’s weight meant the 3.0 Litre V6 was offered although with the introduction of the 2.7 litre V6 diesel the V6 version was discontinued (neither V6 nor diesel were available in US A new six-speed automatic gearbox was which was lighter and offered economy with lock up on all and a larger spread of ratios.

Air was fitted all round which adaptive damping as well as self levelling. Unlike manufacturers Jaguar did not provide any control of ride height or mode which was fully controlled. Dynamic stability as well as traction control standard.

Two zone climate control was standard with four available on long-wheelbase models. An touch screen interface default settings, satellite the Alpine audio system, and tooth telephone. Jaguar offered voice control of functions.

Jaguar XJ X351

In July the newly styled XJ was unveiled at the Gallery in London, with Jay and Elle Macpherson unveiling the new The unveiling was broadcast live on the website.

In keeping with Ian new design direction for Jaguar, it is an exterior design and a break the XJ series mould carried on all previous generations. It is a longer, car that looks much than its predecessor.The front has links with the executive car XF, with slimmer, sleeker and a larger, squarer grille and aggressive appearance. The rear is the part, like nothing has shown before.

The upright, taillights, nicknamed ‘cat’s and black roof panels side of the rear screen, aim to hide the XJ’s width, are the striking aspects. There is a standard full-length sunroof, extends all the way back with a single body-coloured roof that the designer likens to on yachts.

The new XJ features an innovative, dashboard and console displays. The can be configured to display various dials in addition to the obligatory The console display presents views to the driver and passenger, control of a sophisticated video and system.

Mike Cross, one of the chief engineers, spoke about the new Jaguar XJ dynamics in an with Autocar.
