I seem to remember they did - going back a bit on here I seem to remember Alistair owned one for a while and it was somewhat of a tyre shredder. Maybe he can verify that..

Broadspeed XJ12C in Leyland colours were a very successful racing outfit.

We had a friend at pinewood and had access to/provided cars for many of the programs. One of them was Steeds broadspeed XJ12C. A few stories that are best not printed. 7mpg.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

One of my Dad's friends had an XJ-C briefly back in the 70s, but went back to an XJ saloon quite quickly because he was disappointed by the level of wind noise in the coupé, made even more noticeable by how extremely quiet and refined the saloon was.

I loved my big cat THAT I owned a few years ago

Smooth as you like and plenty of poke. Oh, and quite easy to spot :-)
