Jaguar XJ6 KYP 1K is the only example produced in one of British Leyland's most unusual and attractive 1970s colours, Black Tulip. It was ordered in this fetching shade by Mr H.R. Sharland whose wife, it is believed, had an identically coloured MGB. However Jaguar, which had by this time been part of the conglomerate for four years, was famously independent and listed the car's colour in their company records as a 'special order in Roman Purple', although it is, and has always been, BL Black Tulip!

Michael Maurice Gilbert from Epsom purchased it in 1977 and his family retained it until 1995 when Mr van Doorn from Aalsmeer in Holland acquired it and embarked upon a restoration which included conversion to left-hand-drive, a Daimler Vanden Plas interior, air-conditioning and rebuilding both the engine and automatic gearbox. He kept the car until 2000 at which point it was purchased by Mr Van der Tak who had Jaguar specialists Noble House store and maintain the car in Holland so he could use it when visiting from his home in South Africa. Now owned by CS Jaguar Klub member Petr Kokes from Praha in the Czech Republic, this special car is one of the stars of his collection of ten Jaguars.
