L581 GVT
Staffordshire Police
Jaguar XJ6 PS
The ‘Police Special’ version of Jaguar’s 4.0 litre XJ6 model. The car joined Staffs Police from new in 1993. It later moved to be used by the driving training unit before moving to front-line duties as a traffic car. The rear seats were taken out when it was used as a traffic car as the boot was not big enough to accommodate the kit that was carried. The seats were later reinstated so the vehicle could be used to carry detainees. It was the first video car on the central traffic group. It definitely had rear seats but also had a VHS video recorder in the boot as it was in the early days of video cars. The car has been in preservation since 2003.
