The Jaguar XJ12 and the Daimler Double Six
Leather seats even in the basic version, a fine wooden cockpit, the usual English noblesse and all kinds of extras such as electric windows, sunroof and automatic air conditioning - these are the hallmarks of the XJ12 engine power from Jaguar. And even if some all too harsh critics are offended by too little chrome and too much rubber - the XJ12 and also the Daimler Double Six, equipped with even more leather, are in any case classics that cause a stir. On the following pages you will find all the parts you need to take decent care of your cat.

The XJ12: An Engine Power Then and Now
Equipped with the engine from the Jaguar E-Type, the XJ12, introduced in 1972, was one of the few luxury saloons with a 12-cylinder engine for a long time. BMW and Mercedes, for example, did not offer this until 1987 and 1991 respectively. This made the XJ12 Jaguar's flagship model and, with 295 hp in the most powerful engine version, one of the fastest production saloons ever.
The XJ12 is still considered a relatively affordable model in the classic luxury class which was the fastest four-seat production car of this time. Such engine performance is unique in this price range. And the XJ12 is not only an exotic car in terms of the purchase price, but also in terms of running costs. Moreover, it is one of those cars for which spare parts supply is not a problem.
