1971 Jaguar XK 2+2 V12 description
By the mid-1960s, the Jaguar E-Type was appealing to the man with a young family but who were restricted by the size of the current Jaguar E-Type coupe and its open topped sibling. This prompted Jaguar to offer a third option in the form of a 2+2 coupe. By adding nine inches to the wheelbase and two inches in height, it was then possible to fit a rear seat capable of seating two adults in tolerable comfort. Of course the rear seat was more suited to children or, as 'The Motor' put it at the time, the car could 'extend Dad's youth for another seven years'. Robert Bell in "The Motor" was quoted as saying, "At the time, all we expected to try was a new engine, but what in fact we drove was a new car. Not a yowling, aggressive Ferrari-like machine with which, perhaps, most people associate a V12 engine, but a very smooth, quiet and refined grand touring sports car."
This numbers matching Series III V-12, 2+2 is an early production car (1S71425BW) that came from the factory with a higher compression engine only offered in 1971.
