Jaguar XJ-6 sedan 1985
• A classic English luxury sedan with all the Jaguar panache,
• Gorgeous lines and stunning interior,
• Drives as new and flawless, wonderful long distance car,
• If you crave British traditional luxury, look no further!
The Jaguar XJ6 is a classic example of British luxury sedans at their best. This Series III XJ-6 is the last of Sir William Lyons’s automobile designs with styling derived partially from Pininfarina. A crisp and timeless design, the lovely, flowing lines proclaim refinement and luxury. Jaguar used an iron block, aluminum head dual overhead cam six-cylinder engine with fuel injection with 176 hp and a three speed Borg Warner automatic transmission for the car, which works well. There are also power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes. All in all, a most refined car for the era, but (fortunately in my view) without all the electronic goodies that have become inexorable essentials in today’s cars.
You enter a cabin that is the epitome of British luxury, with leather and wood in all directions. The front seats are tall and comfortable with adjustable lumber support. In front of you sits a well-designed instrument panel that is strictly business—and there’s a nice center console between the seats. Add a standard power sun roof, power windows, and air conditioning with separate rear seat controls and deep pile carpeting, and you’re in luxurious territory. This is a very comfortable sedan, with sound deadening that gives you a nice, quiet ride. The XJ is very easy to drive, but somewhat slower on pickup than today’s cars. It’s well behaved, indeed gentlemanly, in traffic, with excellent visibility thanks to large side mirrors by the standards of the day. The gears change imperceptibly, but you don’t have aggressive acceleration until you up the revs quite considerably. This is not a fast accelerating car, for 0 to 60 is around 9.6 seconds, positively leisurely by today’s standards. But owners of this car are, above all, out for a comfortable ride, and that the Jaguar provides in spades. This is, above all, a gentleman’s luxury sedan with all that implies, ideal for those long freeway journeys and for those leisurely drives that are so enjoyable. I took the car through some quite curvaceous slalom bends in which the XJ excelled. It’s precise, with good steering and excellent brakes, so you can back and forth quite nicely, although the pickup out of corners is not as aggressive as you might expect. This is exactly what is sets out to be: a gentleman’s luxury sedan in the finest sense of the word.
The XJ6 is a trip down memory lane that will appeal to people who crave simplicity and luxury in their cars. It is unobtrusive on the road, gorgeous to look upon, and very comfortable. This is a car for older drivers and their friends, for nostalgia buffs, and people who are not necessarily in a hurry and want to enjoy their driving somewhat isolated from the world. Small wonder there is a persistent demand and loyal following for this classic Jaguar. Just to drive down the road with the long, sloping hood in front of you surrounded by English leather is something very special.
This is a superb example of the XJ6 in maroon with spotless leather upholstery and unblemished wood. A one-owner car, it has unusually low mileage, a mere 86,000 miles on the clock. The previous owner cherished this lovely automobile, which has been impeccably maintained and always garaged. It checked out very well and drives as smoothly as when it was new. If you’re looking for an older luxury sedan, look no further than this well priced example of a classic. If you’re hesitating, just step back and bask in the gorgeous lines. This is a lovely car in truly exceptional condition and you’ll look
