Jaguar XJC
 The World's Fastest Vinyl Roof
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!)
