In 1984 Jaguar would introduced its first new, 6 cylinder engine since 1948. The AJ6 engine was a 3.6 litre dohc unit of alloy construction, was lighter that the XK engine and gave more power per cc.

Fitted matching Pirelli tyres all round, new steering rack, expensive stack CD system, owner has had rear parking sensors fitted, extensive service history, and is said to drive superbly.

Finished in Sebring red the car is offered with a long Tax and MOT.
