Jaguar updated its flagship XJ12 cars in 1973 and introduced the same styling changes as it had done on the six cylinder XJ6 range. This new facelift included the standardisation of the long wheel base body that had been optional on the Series I cars, which meant improved leg room for the rear passengers.
The Series II sported a new, lower profile front grille complete with a larger, rectangular air intake beneath the front bumper. The engine now produced 285bhp and 1975 saw the introduction of a much improved GM gearbox. The XJ12 remained a steady seller for Jaguar and continued in production until the arrival of the 1979 Series III cars.
