The XJC is one of the best looking coupes ever built.  The pillarless door design gives the appearance of a convertible.  Trusty 4.2L Jaguar DOHC six-cylinder.  A great deal of fun to drive!  We take ours on long trips regularly.


Wind noise has plauged these cars from new.  Build quality is not the best because they were made when Jaguar was a part of British Leyland and the British car industry was at its lowest point.  Properly sorted however, these are reliable cars.


The Best Sedan Based Car Jaguar Built! — How many cars do you realize that after you sold it, it was the wrong thing to do? How many times do you get to own the car you wished you never sold back again? I am the third and fifth owner of this XJC. Of all the Jaguars I have owned and there have been many, this is the one I wished I never sold. When the opportunity came to buy it again, I jumped at it. Besides the fact that these are spectacular looking cars and that they are uber rare, they are lots of fun to drive. I have fitted my car with wider tires using Jaguar XJS rims and an XJS front sway bar. This has improved the already decent handling and made it a great car to throw around on twisty back roads. Mind you, modern sedans may corner and brake as well, may even be its equal in horsepower and speed, but none looks as good doing it!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Ok, But I Prefer German Engineering By Matt

OK, but the V12 could use a proper 4 or 5 speed tranny either it be an auto or manual. The climate control is sub par in engineering design. Also be sure you replace fuel rail short hoses, when they f... Read More
