Police cars : Jaguar

It takes one to catch one: in fact, some British police forces were using Jaguar saloons as early as the 1940s, but they came into their own as motorway patrol cars. In the pre-BMH/Leyland era, Daimler SP250s and even Jaguar E-types also found their way onto certain police fleets.

    Talk about a built in headwind! Looks as if it would take the 4.2 down to 2.8 performance levels.

    Saw an XJ40 police car in Aberdeen in the early 1990s. It had ‘PC’ next to the number plate.

Have your say...
