1982 Jaguar Series 3v XJ6 Saloon
In 1979, the XJ had a new face that was known as the Series 3. “Piniinfarina” redesigned its version of a long-wheelbase car into a subtle face. Three engine variants include 4.2L Straight 6, 5.3L V12, and 3.4L straight 6. The larger “6-cylinder”, and “V12” models incorporated a “Bosch” fuel injection, which was under license by Lucas, while carburettors made the smaller version of the 6-cylinder.
Series III model provided an option to have a sunroof that is made for the first time on an “XJ model” jaguar. In 1882, the interior of the Jaguar model XJ had a minor upgrade. On the same year, the “Vanden Plas” model became available in the market. This is the type of top-level XJ saloon that is still available in the US until now
