He drove a Jaguar XJ6 very much like this one in the show but this particular black cat appears even better! The overall condition is excellent for a XJ40 generation Jaguar and the gold wire wheels look absolutely stunning! This example was made in Coventry, England in January 1989. It was originally purchased in 1990 in Michigan by its former owner. The seller reports that this car has not been drive on streets since the late 1990s (time for a vigilante to retire?). Dressed in Jet Black (code PDH), the car's paint and trim are in overall very good order. The body is straight and solid but there is a chip upper left corner of the driver's side of the windshield (pot shot from the KGB or perhaps his former boss, Control?). The bumper is a visually distinct black-rubber-covered bar that runs the full width of the car and incorporates the sidelights and indicator lights. The bonnet is hinged at the front. Window frames are either chromed or black, depending on model. Rain gutters, door mirrors and door handles are also finished in chrome. All XJ40s have a chrome surround for the windshield and a single wide-sweeping wiper. This Jag rolls on Pirelli P400 radials, size 205/70R15 at every corner. Each tire is mounted on a wire wheel with gold-finished spokes and chrome rims. The wheels and tires are all in very good condition. Under the forward-hinged hood is a 3.6L DOHC, 24-valve straight six-cylinder engine, (code AJ6). The motor is hitched to a ZF four-speed automatic transmission (code 4HP22) and backed by a 3.54:1 rear end. The automatic transmission selector was redesigned to allow the manual selection of forward gears without accidentally selecting neutral or reverse. This new feature was dubbed the "J-Gate" and remained a staple of all Jaguar models up until the 2008 Jaguar XF. Driver convenience features are as long as one would expect - air-conditioning, power rack-and-pinion steering, power four-wheel disc brakes, cruise control, power locks, power windows, power sideview mirrors, power and heated front seats, trip computer, integrated mobile phone, headlight washers and a sunroof. Sometimes, one needs to keep the clients comfy after one meets them at a coffee shop, delicatessen or at a park. The cabin is finished in Magnolia (code AEM) with a matching center console. The seats, finished in Connolly Leather, are in overall excellent condition. The matching Wilton wool carpet is in similar order, as is the headliner. In back are rear-seat folding tray tables. A three-spoke steering wheel with a wooden rim frames a digital instrument cluster. A two-toned dashboard has burled wood trim on the dash and on the door panels. The J-Gate shifter looks great and a factory AM/FM stereo with a cassette deck completes the interior but currently the air conditioning is operating but is not blowing cold and the fog lights are inoperable. The XJ40 used the Jaguar independent rear suspension arrangement and featured a number of technological enhancements (such as electronic instrument cluster). The XJ40 was at the time, the most extensively tested vehicle the company had ever developed. Designs for the XJ40 pioneered significant improvements to how Jaguar cars were designed, built, and assembled. Among these improvements was a 25% reduction in the number of bodywork panels required per car (e.g., three pressings needed for a Series 3 door compared with one for a XJ40 door), resulting in not only a more efficient assembly process, but also a weight saving and a stiffer structure. Competition to this Jaguar in 1989 included BMW's 735i, Cadillac's Seville Touring Sedan (STS), Infiniti's Q45, Lexus' LS400, Lincoln's Continental, Mercedes-Benz's 300 SEL, Saab's 900S and Volvo's 760. If you're looking for a car that would be fit for a spy with some extra flash, you should check out this 1989 Jaguar XJ6 Vanden Plas sedan at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. VIN: SAJKY1542KC574718 This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows at least 53,000 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!
