Jaguar XJ Coupé 1975
Currently under restoration
Jaguar XJ Coupé 1975 – a classic British coupe with a pillarless, hardtop body that was built between 1975 and 1978. Belonging to the XJ family, the Coupé version developed from the four door model which debuted in 1968 and became Jaguar’s flagship model. The original model was the last Jaguar saloon to have had the input of Sir William Lyons, the company’s founder.
But coming back to the XJ Coupé, there were a bit more than ten thousand of these fine vehicles made. Two different types of engines were planted on this coupe: a 4.2 litre XK6 I6 and a 5.3 litre Jaguar V12. The Jaguar XK is an inline 6-cylinder dual overhead camshaft (DOHC) engine produced by Jaguar Cars between 1949 and 1992. Introduced as a 3.4-litre, it earned fame on both the road and track, being produced in five displacements between 2.4 and 4.2-litres for Jaguar passenger cars, with other sizes being made by Jaguar and privateers for racing.
XJ Coupé’s interior is an exquisite and neat example of British design. Leather seats, wood veneer trim and a three-spoke steering wheel give a little hint of this car’s majestic essence.
The XJ Coupé is considered as a top of the line Jaguar which was much desired back in the day and has become a remarkable collectible at present times.
The car has spent its entire life in France. It is an elegant cruiser that with a help of a 4-speed overdrive transmission drives quietly even in modern highway driving conditions. Interior is equipped with original leather seats and has a variety of additional features. The car is rolling on 14” steel wheels with chrome hubcaps. The racing-proved traditional inline 6 provides smooth driving.
