The first all-new Jaguar saloon since the Series 1 XJ6 of 1968, the XJ40 was introduced at the 1986 Motor Show. A new Jaguar saloon under the code number XJ40 had been proposed as early as 1972, the final styling proposal being adopted by 1980. The longest development programme in Jaguar’s history, the new car was also the most stringently tested model that Jaguar had produced up to that time, with 250 prototypes and development cars covering over five million miles. The model featured a new engine family, state of the art electronic technology, and a unique J-gate automatic transmission. The XJ40 was powered by the AJ6 six-cylinder engine, replacing the classic XK engine in Jaguar’s saloon range, in 3.6 and 2.9 litre versions. 

The all-new body had significantly improved build methods over previous models, but its angular styling and six-light design were a break with Jaguar traditions, and perhaps for that reason, the XJ40 is sometimes seen as controversial. The XJ40 was later replaced by the much-revised X300 which marked a return from the angular styling of the XJ40 to a more traditional Jaguar look.

This XJ40 is a 1989 3.6 model, with just two recorded owners from new, the current since July of 2003.

A running and driving car, the Jaguar has been dry stored off the road since the passing of the former keeper. Offered with V5C and key, the XJ40 will be sold with no reserve to the highest bidder on the day.
