Looking like Sue Ellen Ewing from âDallasâ or Alexis Carrington from âDynastyâ drove it when new, MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer this 1986 Jaguar XJ6 Vanden Plas sedan. The Vanden Plas was the top-of-the-line trim level.

Made in August 1985 at Jaguarâs Brownâs Lane assembly plant in Coventry, England, this cat is dressed in rich Regency Red with a doeskin interior. The carâs paint and trim are in overall very good shape, with only minor blemishes visible at close range. The windows are clear and intact, including the rear window with defroster grid, and look great overall but in the lower left corner of the windshield, the rubber seal shrank/is misaligned. All of this catâs lights are present, intact and clear.
The car rolls on radials, size 215/70R15, surrounding factory wire wheels. The wheels and tires are in overall good condition. The carâs body panels are straight and solid, including the power sunroof, while the boot (thatâs trunk for you Americans) interior is in decent order. Under the bonnet, (thatâs hood for you Yanks) the bay is tidy and features a 4.2L straight six-cylinder engine with seven main bearings, Lucas-Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection and breathes through dual exhausts. Buttoned to the engine is a Borg-Warner three-speed automatic transmission and 2.88:1 gearing.
Driver convenience features include automatic climate control, cruise control, power assisted rack-and-pinion steering, power four-wheel disc brakes, power window lifts, power seats and power door locks.
Inside, the Doeskin interior is eye-catching. The Connolly Leather seats are in near-excellent order, with the matching Wilton Wool carpet in very good condition. When new, the front seats were hand-made to orthopedic specifications for comfort and support. The rear seat passengers were not shortchanged, either, with contoured seats, a folding center armrest that also provides storage. There are reading lights that swivel and seatback magazine pockets. The headliner is in decent condition, considering it shares real estate with the sunroof. The instrument panel, with its full instrumentation and burled walnut trim is in one piece and attractive. The original, two-spoke steering wheel, which adjusts telescopically, is present and the inner door panels with matching burled walnut accents are in overall good order but the driverâs side one shows some blemishes, likely due to weather exposure since new. The mirror glass, center console and shift lever are in overall good shape but the center console has a few blemishes. The gas gauge is inoperable. Completing the interior is an 80-watt, factory AM/FM stereo with cassette deck and four speakers.
Competition to this Jaguar in 1986 included Bentleyâs Mulsanne, Cadillacâs Seville ÃlÃ©gantÃ©, Chryslerâs Fifth Avenue and Mercedes-Benzâs 300SEL.
According to the 1986 Jaguar XJ6 brochure, Guillaume Vanden Plas inherited his uncleâs wheel-making business in Brussels, Belgium in 1870. He soon moved the shop to Antwerp and moved beyond just making wheels into complete carriage- and coachworks. Soon Vanden Plas built a reputation for distinctive and exquisite coaches. In the 20th century, the coachbuilder made limited-edition motorcars for Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Daimler, Talbot, Bugatti and Lagonda.
