The XJ40 project, an all-new car intended to replace the first generation XJ, had already been in development for about 15 years by the time the car was launched in 1986. The last vehicle designed with input from Jaguar founder William Lyons, it was an all-new car. Nevertheless, it retained much of the opulent character of its predecessor, which actually continued in production alongside it, in V12 form only, for a further six years. The new car marked a leap forward for Jaguar; it was easier to produce, lighter and stiffer than the previous XJ, and had a lower drag coefficient, leading to improved fuel economy. In addition, it attained a good reputation for safety, being named the safest car in Britain in 1993. Inside, there was the same level of traditional luxury that Jaguar owners had come to expect. Until 1990, only 2.9 and 3.6 litre straight-six engines were available.
This 1990 2.9 litre XJ6 was a demonstrator and it was sold to its first and only owner after three months; it comes with all old MOTs and invoices and 16 stamps in the service book. The last service was in 2016; since then the car has covered less than 200 miles, the total now reading 58,165 at the time of cataloguing. In good condition, it comes with the original tool kit, two sets of keys, and a V5c.
