The Jaguar XJ Series and its Daimler counterparts were introduced in 1968. Some four years into production a 12-cylinder XJ was offered for the first time, the Daimler version of which was dubbed the Double Six, thereby reviving the famous Daimler model name of the vintage era. Throughout the '70s, Jaguar had been developing an all new design to follow its graceful Series 1, 2 and 3 models. However, the launch was delayed and it didn't see the light of day until 1986. Even then the line-up didn't include a 12-cylinder option - the engine bay apparently being too narrow to house a unit of V configuration. Ford solved the problem when they took over Jaguar-Daimler in 1989 and the new, silky-smooth 5.3-litre (later 6.0-litre) V12 cars finally came to market in 1993. The engines were mated to an equally new GM-based four-speed automatic transmission.
