Made in August 1985 at Jaguars Browns Lane assembly plant in Coventry, England, this cat is dressed in rich Regency Red with a doeskin interior. The cars paint and trim are in overall very good shape, with only minor blemishes visible at close range. The windows are clear and intact, including the rear window with defroster grid, and look great overall but in the lower left corner of the windshield, the rubber seal shrank/is misaligned. All of this cats lights are present, intact and clear.
The car rolls on radials, size 215/70R15, surrounding factory wire wheels. The wheels and tires are in overall good condition. The cars body panels are straight and solid, including the power sunroof, while the boot (thats trunk for you Americans) interior is in decent order. Under the bonnet, (thats hood for you Yanks) the bay is tidy and features a 4.2L straight sixcylinder engine with seven main bearings, LucasBosch LJetronic fuel injection and breathes through dual exhausts. Buttoned to the engine is a BorgWarner threespeed automatic transmission and 2.88:1 gearing.
Driver convenience features include automatic climate control, cruise control, power assisted rackandpinion steering, power fourwheel disc brakes, power window lifts, power seats and power door locks.
Inside, the Doeskin interior is eyecatching. The Connolly Leather seats are in nearexcellent order, with the matching Wilton Wool carpet in very good condition. When new, the front seats were handmade to orthopedic specifications for comfort and support. The rear seat passengers were not shortchanged, either, with contoured seats, a folding center armrest that also provides storage. There are reading lights that swivel and seatback magazine pockets. The headliner is in decent condition, considering it shares real estate with the sunroof. The instrument panel, with its full instrumentation and burled walnut trim is in one piece and attractive. The original, twospoke steering wheel, which adjusts telescopically, is present and the inner door panels with matching burled walnut accents are in overall good order but the drivers side one shows some blemishes, likely due to weather exposure since new. The mirror glass, center console and shift lever are in overall good shape but the center console has a few blemishes. The gas gauge is inoperable. Completing the interior is an 80watt, factory AM/FM stereo with cassette deck and four speakers.
Competition to this Jaguar in 1986 included Bentleys Mulsanne, Cadillacs Seville lgant, Chryslers Fifth Avenue and MercedesBenzs 300SEL.
