Exterior Colors

A word to the wise: we don't guarantee that the colors as illustrated below are accurate, or indeed that they're even close! A LOT of images will be loaded, so please be patient. The colors are presented in alphabetical order along with the years they were generally available, indicated by the black numbers below the color name. The paint codes (if available) are from various internet and written sources--they have NOT been verified!

Note: Non-standard colors were usually available by special order. Not every catalog color is illustrated. By following the link to "more cars" you will be viewing cars whose color has been self-selected by the person entering the data. This can be frightfully inaccurate at times. Use the cars on this page as a starting point.

Apologies about some of the poor quality shots. They are all that we have of certain colors--the XJ-S site has a great number of small photos.

I own a 95 4 litre Celebration coupe in Spruce Green with Cream leather piped in Coffee. Spruce is a metalic BRG. I notice it is not mentioned in the above list. This is a rare colour and may have been only introduced with the 95 and 96 Celebration models. I have just uploaded my cars details chassis number SAJJNAED3EJ222618. Please feel free to use these pictures as an example of this lovely colour.

Searching for dark metallic red (more dark burgundy) XJ6 color, much darker than all the reds depicted here.
Grateful for color-names &/or images.

Cheers - AB.

The seller claims this XJS is the elusive Morrocan Red. Maybe you can snag one of the photos:

BTW your photo of the "Sage Green" XJS seems to be of a 94 or later car but the years suggest the color was only available in 84/5/6.
