In 1981, the second generation of the Jaguar XJ-S was introduced. The new model received a more efficient V12 engine with a power output of 220 kW (295 hp) for the European market or 196 kW (263 hp) for the US market. In 1983, a new 3.6-liter AJ6 six-cylinder engine was introduced, along with a Targa version called the XJ-SC. In this version, the small rear seats have been removed to make room for the removable soft top. The roof of the Targa version was not completely removable, so this not-quite-convertible has never had much success in the market. As a result, in 1988 the two-seater was replaced by a real convertible, which proved to be incredibly popular. From 1988 to 1993, a special version of the high-performance XJR-S with a 5.3-liter HE V12 engine with a power output of 237 kW (318 hp) was produced. A little later, the engine's displacement was increased to 6.0 L and a Zytek fuel injection system was installed. As a result, the car's power was increased to 245 kW (329 hp) at 5250 rpm and a total of 495 Nm of torque at 3650 rpm. In 1997, Motorsport magazine conducted comparison tests where the Jaguar XJR-S outperformed solid competitors such as the BMW 850i, Porsche 928 GT and Ferrari Mondial.
Interestingly, this massive car was very efficient on ring race tracks. The car competed in the ETCC (European Touring Car Championship), Group A in Australia and finally the Fuji 500 in Japan.
