The Revolutionary Jaguar XJ Series

The Jaguar XJ Saloon series has embodied the trademark beauty, power and luxury of Jaguar for 55 years and will continue to do so for many years to come. The Series 1 first debuted in 1968; it was followed by the Series 2 in 1973 before the Series 3 came along in 1979.

XJ Series 1

The Jaguar XJ6 Series 1 was a saloon like no other when it was released in 1968. With its revolutionary design, forward thinking styling and the handling of an E-Type, the effects of William Lyon’s longest living creation are still felt today. The design was profound with its enormous wheels and tyres specifically produced by Dunlop for the XJ6. It set new standards in ride and refinement while retaining the XK twin cam engine with twin carburettors.


XJ Series 2

Produced from 1973-1979, the Series 2 introduced many design amendments, primarily to comply with USA safety regulations including raised front bumpers which in-turn resulted in a change to the radiator grille and lighting. The new engine configurations were 3.4 litre, 4.2 litre and 5.3 litre engines. Jaguar also introduced a two-door coupe model without any pillars.


XJ Series 3

A much needed refreshment to the XJ range, the Series 3 came with new lighting, impact-absorbing bumpers, flush door handles and plenty of interior changes. The 6-cylinder Series 3 finally halted production in 1987, while the V12 continued for another four years into 1991 (only to be outlived by the Double Six Daimler, which came to a stop in 1992).
