Sold Jaguar XJ12 Series 1 1973

Jaguar XJ12 Series 1 1973



Built without compromise to perform without equal, The XJ12 version was announced in July 1972, featuring different badging to the XJ6, which along with simplified grille treatment distinguished the new 5.3 litre V-12 engined car from the XJ6.

The XJ12 has ventilated front disc brakes and a limited slip differential to cope with its 140 mph performance.

The car, as presented at that time, was the world's only mass-produced 12-cylinder four-door car, and was marketed as being the fastest full four-seater available in the world.

3,235 of these first generation XJ12s were built from July 1972 to August 1973.


  • Immaculate condition throughout – photos do not do the car justice – must be seen to be appreciated
  • Short Wheel base
  • NZ New – car sold new on 07/08/1973 – still on original plates
  • Last owner before us was the 4th owner – previous owner to him owned the car for 23 years, previous to that for 14 years
  • Superb performer in almost show condition.
  • Very rare in manual – will pass any inspection.

In our opinion, these Jaguars were not only one of the best Jaguars ever built¦they may just be still the best saloon available anywhere in the world.

Will be sold WOF'd and Registered if sold in New Zealand.

Transport / Shipping can be organised on Buyer's behalf at Buyer's cost.
