Just to qualify it would have to be one of those 4.2 supercharged S-Type jobbies.

Then those mongrel mustang engined 75/ZT things would eat my chuddies :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

They are very cheap on the secondhand market. I am old enough to remember when the Jaguar E Type was available for rock bottom money on the secondhand market (especially the V12s as nobody could afford the fuel for them) but look at how much they fetch nowadays!!

However to be absolutely honest it would have to be either an XJ6 4.2 Coupe or the V12 version.

Would pluck out my left eye for one of those.

You'd be better off with the 6 cylinder 4.2 than the V12 . . . the extra thirst of the V12 outweighs the performance advantage for driving on UK roads, and besides you only need to cruise at a steady 50 to pose . . . ;)

Might as well post a pic of the one I had for about two years.

Traded it in for 2 litre GT Cortina in black and yellow.--- (bang head against a wall)

I used to own an XJ40 a few years back, was completely knackered. Very rusty floor and dead suspension but in all honesty the best car I have ever owned.
