1976 Jaguar XJ6C 4.2-Litre Coupé
Chassis no. 2J1728BW
Engine no. 8L25585S

Launched to universal acclaim in 1968, the XJ6 refined concepts embodied by previous Jaguar saloons to create a car rivalling 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. In 1975 the range was extended by the introduction of two-door XJ6C and XJ12C coupés, which were built on the shorter of the two available wheelbase lengths. 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 right-hand drive, automatic-transmission example has been partially restored and comes with the related invoices. Finished in Olive Green with clean beige cloth interior, the car is offered with French Carte Grise. A rare opportunity to acquire a good example of this appreciating modern classic.

Un des 6,505 coupés 4,2 litres produits jusqu'en 1977, cette voiture à boîte automatique et conduite à droite a été en partie restaurée. De teinte vert olive avec un bel intérieur en drap beige très net, la voiture est offerte avec sa carte grise française et un dossier de factures de travaux. Une rare occasion d'acquérir un bon exemplaire de ce classique moderne et rare qui s'apprécie avec le temps.
