Daimler Sovereign Series II

Jaguar/Daimler refreshed its six cylinder XJ saloon and Daimler Sovereign range in 1973 with the introduction of the XJ6 and Daimler Sovereign Series II. The new cars featured a sleeker new body shell which had a slimmer front grille, new front air intake below the bumper, new lights and a revised interior. At first the short and long wheel base versions were available, however all cars carried the long wheel base after 1975.

The Sovereign once again was powered by the 4.2 litre XJ unit. From 1975, a 3.4 litre, six cylinder versions of the XK series engine was also available. From 1975 until 1977 a Coupe version of the Sovereign was available as a sporting alternative to the normal saloon. This unique Coupe shared the same pillarless two door bodyshell with the identical Jaguar XJ6C built alongside it, albeit in larger quantities.
