Lot 609: 1996 Jaguar XJ6 Executive 3.2-Litre Saloon
Jaguar grasped the nettle bravely in 1986 with the launch of an entirely new XJ6 - code-named XJ40. The new XJ�s outward similarity to the old one masked a host of improvements: a simpler bodyshell constructed from fewer panels, new advanced anti-corrosion technology, increased passenger and luggage space, and revised suspension giving superior ride and handling. Two new six-cylinder engines replaced the long-running XK series; these were the 3.6-litre, 24-valve, twin-cam AJ6 already seen in the XJ-S and a 2.9-litre single-cam unit. In the early 1990s, these two were replaced by AJ16 24-valve units of 3.2 and 4.0 litres capacity, both of which would find their way into the updated X300 Series introduced for 1995.
Embodying the Jaguar traditions of grace, pace and luxury, this 3.2-litre Executive saloon has enjoyed only two former keepers and comes with full Jaguar agent service history to May 2003 at 41,221 miles. In 2003 the vehicle underwent an Autogas LPG conversion in the interests of greater fuel economy, reduced CO2 emissions and lower running costs (LPG is currently around half the price of diesel/petrol) and comes with all the associated paperwork. Finished in maroon with grey leather interior, this superb modern Jaguar is offered with owner�s handbook, service booklet, MoT to September 2008 and Swansea V5 registration document.
