Introduced in October 1983, the Jaguar XJ-S 3.6 was intended to be a sharper, more sporting foil to the range's established, soporific 5.3 litre V12 model. To emphasise the difference, it was fitted with a five-speed manual Getrag gearbox as standard. With some 225bhp and 240lbft of torque on tap courtesy of its 3590cc DOHC 24 valve straight-six, the claimed 140mph top speed and 0-60mph time of 7.4 seconds were a near match for the V12. Yet when such performance was not called upon, it could reputedly return thirty miles per gallon, a feat beyond the V12's capabilities. A revised, more positive feel to the power steering improved the handling still further.
