THE CCW VIEW

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Driving -

‘ The le­gend grows’ was Jaguar’s launch slo­gan for the XJ6 Se­ries 3. Some wags sug­gested that the ‘grow­ing’ ac­tu­ally ap­plied to own­ers’ over­drafts and re­pair bills. We’ve al­ways loved the XJ6, but viewed it as a deeply de­sir­able but tricky to own mas­ter­piece. Yet if looked af­ter, an XJ6 S3 can be a re­li­able ma­chine. Main­te­nance doesn’t have to cost a for­tune and spe­cial­ist and club sup­port is con­sid­er­able. As al­ways, buy the best car you can af­ford and get a mar­que ex­pert to give it the once-over be­fore you part with any money. Bag a good one, and you’ll have a car that’s prac­ti­cal, re­fined, lux­u­ri­ous and pow­er­ful and blessed with a chas­sis that’s adept at com­fort­able waft­ing as it is ham­mer­ing along B-roads. It’s the con­sum­mate all-rounder.
