Jaguar XJ Series II Coupé
XJ6C 4.2 & XJ12C 5.3
|This page highlights exclusively the Jaguar XJ Coupé
built between 1975 & 1977
Many consider this, one of the most beautiful and rare Jaguars there is.
This site will contain information on and images of the XJC (XJ6C and XJ12C) both Jaguar and Daimler.
I have created pages to display Coupé images, magazine articles, magazine ads, manuals and brochures, models as well as links to other Coupé sites.
(Eventually, I'll even get picures of my own XJ12C up on-line!)

|The Jaguar XJ Coupé was launched in
1973, but was not sold until the 1975 model year, due to problems reducing
the noise from the pillarless windows. It was in production until November
1977, with some of the later models being sold as model year 1978.
The 6 cylinder model was known as the XJ 4.2C or XJ6C. The 4.2 referring to the size of the in-line 6 cylinder engine.
The 12 cylinder model was known as the XJ 5.3C or XJ12C. The 5.3 referring to the size of the V-12 engine.
When badged as a Daimler, the Coupé was known as the Sovereign 4.2 or the Daimler Double-Six two door model.
The production numbers of the Coupé were:
|Above the Beaten Path
(Road & Track November 1976)
|Corporate Sports Car
(Road & Track November 1975)
(Fortune February 1976)
