Tyre Diameter: R12 | XJ40 V12 1993 to 1994

XJ40 V12 1993 to 1994

Delayed 6 litre V12 version of the XJ40, produced from 1993 to 1994.

The original standard tyre in this period was 225/55ZR16 on a 16 inch wheel, with an optional alternative of 255/60ZR16.

In 1986 the Jaguar XJ40 took over from the Series 3 XJ saloon; a car which had been launched as far back as 1968, albeit with a couple of hefty facelifts along the way. The new car featured Jaguar's new AJ6 engine in 2.9-litre and 3.6-litre forms while anti-lock brakes, power steering and self-levelling suspension were standard.

Things got sporty in 1989 with the arrival of the Jaguar XJR with its bodykit, alloy wheels and metallic paint, although it was mechanically the same as the regular 3.6-litre XJ40. Things got even sportier within a year, with the Jaguar XJR's engine growing to four litres, in line with the rest of the XJ40 range. At the same time, the XJ40's six-cylinder 2.9-litre engine was superseded by a 3.2-litre unit.

A revised XJ40 was launched in 1993 which brought a long-wheelbase Majestic option along with 3.2 Sport and 4.0 Sport models, with a bodykit, alloy wheels and enhanced interiors. More interestingly, 6.0-litre V12-engined Jaguar and Daimler models were introduced. But by 1994 it was all over, with the Jaguar XJ40 superseded by the X300.
