When introduced in 1979, the Jaguar XJ6 Series III was not immediately to everyone's liking.
Despite an expensive redesign with its Pininfarina styled roof, and refreshed cabin, some Big Cat enthusiasts felt that it was taking liberties with the classic looks of one of their favourites.
In addition to new body panels, the new model had an increased amount of glass, and a much-needed additional three inches of headroom in the back - great if you're being chauffered!
The Series III include flush door handles, vertical grille bars, revised 'Gothic' rear lamp clusters, and impact bumpers with decorative chrome along their top edges.
Production of the Series III XJ6 continued until early 1987.

The Series III established itself as one of the best Jaguars of all time, with the injected 4.2-litre coming out as the pick of the crop.
