Carpet Colours

Postby Simont485 » Sun Jan 03, 2016 4:25 pm

I am trying to find out all the options available for the XJ12.

I have seen other XJ40s with Red/Mulberry carpets especially on the S models and Daimler.

I don't know if it was available on the V12 though!

I don't see why they would not have been available? I have never seen red carpets on an XJ12 though.
I get the feeling most buyers chose "recommended" colour schemes/ trim combinations.
No reason no to fit them though, if that's what you want?

Not sure if red carpet was fitted when Doeskin with red piping was chosen?!!

Mind you find perfect red carpets may not be easy!

Going through my brochure collection there is reference to carpet colours for the S models only.

All S models were fitted with Ruby or Smoke Grey carpets.

But no reference if available on other cars....but I guess when buying a New Jag and you wanted Ruby carpet it wouldn't have been a problem!

I'm pretty sure I've seen a body colour/trim combination chart somewhere. Let me dig through the archives.

Found it! The pdf in the following link gives all the trim carpet combinations for the 93/94 year.

Those jaguarforums.com pdf links are very useful - the information is also on the JDHT XJ40 Supplementary model information DVD (JHN1130)

The XJ12 has the same interior specification level as the Jaguar Sovereign - in spec terms it is effectively a Sports pack Sovereign 6 litre.

Jaguar would make a car with pretty much any colour combination the customer ordered - they were very flexible, which is why the individual XJ40's specification varies so much. Oddly, the VIN 'plate' does not show the presence of contrast piping - the same interior colour code is used for piped and unpiped seats. Cars with a different carpet from usual will also go unrecorded on the VIN 'plate'. Both will be recorded on the car's factory build sheet, but they are closed in the archive now. My own car has Savile grey leather seats piped Isis blue. The code for that is ZLY - which is what is recorded on its build sheet. The car itself just displays LDY - Savile grey without contrast piping.

To demonstrate just how flexible Jaguar were, the seats on both of these cars were ordered new from a dealer like this by their first owner - and trimmed like this in the Jaguar factory when the car was first built.

I think those interiors are great. Really enlightened choice.
However it proves that most Jaguar buyers then were quite conservative in mainly choosing grey or beige interiors. Not that is so bad, but it's a choice that was made. I do suspect most buyers went for recommended combinations. I think regency red and doeskin was by far the most "popular". Either that, or that combo has a great survival rate!

Some interior colours cost extra in some years on some models, Magnolia in a Sov. for example was an extra cost option. (I think?)

The piping colours did vary. My Morocco Red Sov. with AEM trim code had magnolia piping on magnolia leather, magnolia seat belts, barley door tops and dashboard top, doeskin headlining, and champagne with magnolia bindings on the carpets. It is all gone now of course!

However it also had magnolia wool over mats with champagne edging. I saved these when the car went and they are now stored in my garage.

Thanks guys for the information

I would like to change the carpets but need to source new or as new pieces. I have seen some bits for sale by xjrover.

So anyone got red/ruby carpets?

Also waiting on some quotes on seat repairs!
