1987 Jaguar Xj6 4.2 Liter 6 Cyl Series 3. Solid & Straight Original! No Reserve! on 2040-cars
Lawton, Iowa, United States
Offered for sale is an
extremely solid, original 1987 Jaguar XJ6, 4.2 liter Series 3. The last
of the series III cars have become quite desirable and collectable. This car
had many items recently replaced by the previous owner, including: Distributor
cap, rotor, Air-flow meter, transmission service and filter, rear axle mounts,
new battery, O2 sensor, fuel injectors, coolant temperature switch, fuel
pressure regulator, coil, spark plugs. The car has a consistent problem with
varying degrees of hard starting difficulty, but once it is started it runs and
drives very well, with no drivability problems. The engine makes good oil
pressure, runs cool, and is very strong. This XJ6 rides very tight and smooth,
shifts excellent, steers and stops as it should, with no drama. The
interior is in exceptional condition for the age; the seats, carpet, and dash
are in great condition, however the headliner is starting to separate (see
photos). The paint is beginning to show its age in some places. There is also a
small hole in the trunk floor at the rear edge, but is fairly minor. This car
is not perfect, but is a very solid, straight and original example. This
classic Jaguar would make a great driver for someone. This is a no reserve
auction, highest bidder wins. Email with any questions.

Some automakers make a hardcore model, then sit back and revel in its awesomeness. Jaguar does things a little differently. It takes a standard production model, gives it more power, bigger brakes and a tighter suspension and slaps the letter R on it. Then it gives it even more power, even bigger brakes and an even tighter suspension and calls it an R-S. Sometimes the engineers in Coventry don't even think that's enough, so they strip out some weight and dial things up even further and call it an R-S GT.

So far, they've only gone that far with the XK (transformed first into the XKR, then the XKR-S, and finally the XKR-S GT), but with that model on its way out, Jaguar seems to be preparing to give the newer F-Type a similar treatment. Now we can't be sure that what we're looking at is an F-Type R-S GT, especially since the 550-horsepower engine from the XKR-S and XFR-S is already powering the existing F-Type R Coupe, but it does seem to have all the makings of a hardcore performance model.
Compared to the existing F-Type, the development model pictured here has a bigger front splitter (like the one on the Project 7 concept), a big rear wing and a set of what looks like pretty big lightweight alloys. It's also, tellingly, a roadster, which (unlike the coupe) has until now topped out at 500hp with the V8 S model. So while it may be hard to say exactly just what Jaguar has in store for us here (or what they'll call it), one thing's for sure: it's gonna be fast and loud.
Jaguar may price the much-rumored F-Type Coupe above the F-Type Convertible, if a report from Australia's Drive is to be believed. What makes Jag think that such a pricing strategy would work? Porsche. Take a look at the German manufacturer's consumer site, and you'll notice that the Boxster is less expensive than the Cayman, despite being essentially the same car.

It's a fair point, and a price premium does a good job of emphasizing the sporting chops of the coupe over the open-air experience that normally entitles convertibles to higher MSRPs. It's unclear just how closely Jaguar will follow Porsche's example, though.
Both the Cayman and Cayman S boast an extra ten horsepower over a Boxster or Boxster S, and while this bump in grunt is negligible in every situation but an argument over which is "best," it isn't something to be ignored in the F-Type, particularly as cranking more power out of its supercharged engines should be a rather simple matter.
Jaguar's big splash at last year's Los Angeles Auto Show was showing off the slinky F-Type Coupe; perhaps one of the loveliest car shapes on the road today. This year the company won't have a show-stopping new design to offer, but the news that all-wheel drive is coming to the F-Type range is, nevertheless, pretty spectacular.
Mixed in with news about a technical partnership between Jaguar and the Bloodhound SSC World Land Speed Record program, the British brand announced this morning that it will show the first AWD F-Type Coupe at the 2014 LA show later this month.
Jaguar tells us that the sure-footed cat, in AWD F-Type R Coupe form, will run from 0-60 miles per hour in just 3.9 seconds, with a limited top speed of 186 mph.
