As cars came to look less like art and more like appliances in the later 1970s, Jaguar turned in a different direction, calling on Italian design house Pininfarina -- honers of glorious Alfa Romeo and Ferrari designs -- to perfect its feline classic.
This beautiful British racing green XJ6 was owned by a couple who enjoyed it in Connecticut and Florida. They owned the car for more than three decades, and kept it completely stock. Having driven an average of just 2,500 miles a year, this British classic runs strong and handles like a car far smaller than its 195 inches.
"This car brings me back to my preppy days at the Hackley School, corresponding directly to the production years of this model," says VTP Founder Brewster Thackeray. "These cars were driven by very successful individuals who wanted something more lush and lovely than the German and Swedish alternatives of the era."
