1983-1991 Jaguar XJ-S 3.6 specifications Classic and Performance Car

Less complicated, less thirsty and almost as quick, the six-cylinder XJ-S makes a huge amount of sense


As well as ushering in the Cabriolet bodyshell, the arrival of the AJ6 engine gave Jaguar the chance to refocus the car’s marketing. Although it lacked the ultimate grunt of the V12, the new engine and manual transmission package added sporting appeal into the mix and, although it shouldn’t have worked, the six-cylinder XJ-S actually went on to sell rather well. High performance 'TWR' versions were introduced to reflect the tastes of the 1980s, as well as a range of questionable body kits and trim options, which diluted the original car’s appeal.
