Jaguar XJ6, XJ12 and XJR Service and Repair

Motorcars Ltd was founded in 1972 right in the middle of the British car hey-day…. people were actually driving these cars to work every day… and when we started, we quickly realized that the Jaguar XJ6’s and XJ12’s needed routine maintenance along with the other British classics we were servicing. It was a pretty crazy time – we performed full restorations on MGTC’s and XK120’s and maintained daily drivers of XJ6’s and XJ12’s – at one point, we had over 12 full restorations in progress!

A Closer Look At The Jaguar XJ6, XJ12 and XJR Models

Jaguar XJ6 (Series 1) and XJ12 (Series 1)

Jaguar simplified its saloon line-up in 1968 and introduced the XJ6 in 4.2 or 2.8. The saloon gained the V12 in 1972. Available as a Vanden Plas or Daimler Double Six, the XJ12 became the fastest production 4-seater in the world.

Jaguar XJ6 (Series 2) and XJ12 (Series 2)

1973 saw a mildly remodeled Series II XJ6 hit the road. Soon thereafter, Jaguar offered XJ6C and XJ12C coupes, stylish two-door hard-tops.

Jaguar XJ6 (Series 3) and XJ12 (Series 3)

In 1979 Jaguar launched a slim XJ6 Series III. Many enthusiasts believe it may have been the most beautifully styled four-door sedan ever.

Jaguar XJ6 (XJ40) and XJ12 (XJ40)

Jaguar introduced the new XJ40 body with AJ6 engine in Europe in 1986 and the U.S. in 1987 available as an XJ6, Sovereign, Majestic, Vanden Plas or Daimler. Some markets continued to receive the Series III XJ12. The XJ12, known as the Daimler Double Six in Europe, re-emerged with a 6.0 liter V12 in 1993 in the XJ40 body.

Since our founding in 1972, Motorcars Ltd has maintained literally hundreds of the Jaguar XJ40. Motorcars Ltd was in full operation in the hey-day of the XJ40 sedans. We have literally grown up with these cars coming and going in our shops.
Jaguar XJ6 (X300)

Jaguar rolled out the new X300 body in 1995 available as an XJ6, Sovereign, Majestic, Vanden Plas or supercharged XJR — the first supercharged Jaguar. The X330 chassis, stretched five inches in the backseat area, made the XJ6L an executive-carpool favorite.
