Jaguar gives world debut to new XJ6
Luxury carmaker Jaguar had a surprise up its sleeve for its Press Day photocall: the world debut of the XJ6 model that it believes offers “a new level of accessibility” to the XJ range. Jaguar Cars MD Mike Beasley introduced the all-aluminium sedan that he predicts will be a big seller in Britain. With a 3-liter V6 boasting 240 hp, the XJ6 joins the marque’s “flagship range”, taking its place alongside the XJ8, XJR and new XJ Super V8 models.
The new XJ may be the latest incarnation of a marque which has stretched over four decades, but Jaguar are keen to point out that this is the most advanced production model they have ever produced. Globally, Jaguar sales exceeded 100,000 in 2001 and even in today’s difficult economic climate the company is forecasting more growth in 2002. The new XJ will be a significant factor in maintaining this trend.
Since its introduction in 1968, the XJ series has accounted for more than half of all Jaguars ever sold. Aside from the XJ, Jaguar also took the wraps off a new special edition version of the X-type, the Indianapolis, production of which will be limited to just 400 vehicles.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
