My new family car is about to be delivered. While I was waiting for it (ordered in August last year) I had the pleasure of driving the Jaguars as daily drivers. I am about to put the V12 into storage and get the 3.2l on the road again.
Before I do this, I thought I’d take a video. The V12 sounds so nice
And while we are at it, here is the 3.2l straight six for comparison:

The noise it nice but, actually, I’m more delighted to see someone give their Jaguar the boot. Most are driven as though they’re made of glass

Where is the fun in that?
Theses cars dont have a good suspension and well engineered powerful engines only to be driven slowly

Oh, that changed drastically when the right side exhaust fell off
The kids liked it

The boot. Yes, indeed. (1994 XJ12 / 28 May 2020). The radiator cracked soon after, so there are side effects.

Is yours limited to 250km/h?
I had the needle beyond the 260km/h mark, but didn’t dare take a picture at the time.

I’d say it’s self limiting for its own good
It was full throttle and wouldn’t give more. There’s not hardware limiter on these cars.

It took me a bit of a distance to get up to 5900rpm on level ground. Only did that once, usually there is too much traffic to try and do this where I live.
